I don't think that's entirely true.

Lemmy edumakate you about a little Freudian psychology about how we choose "right and wrong"

People are motivated by three basic forces-what Freud called "Id", "Ego", and "Superego"

"Id" is our hedonistic side. I want steal that, or Eff that, or kill him/her

"Ego" is our fear of the negative consequences we will suffer if we are caught doing something wrong (prison, pain, death, Hell, etc)

"Superego" is our desire to do the right thing despite the positive or negative consequences (religious or secular)

Most cops START OUT with a normal mix of those three forces-maybe with a little bit more idealistic "superego"

The problem with scumbag cops is that after a few years, there are forces within and outside the police department that do two things to them

1. Give them a sense of entitlement- "Everybody hates me...I risk my life and nobody appreciates it...I see people doing 'the wrong thing and they have more than I do'..." This diminishes the "Superego"

2. They see their cop buddies don't "turn into pumpkins"- They see other cops "do the wrong" things usually without negative consequences. Cheating on their wives, lie in court, theft, false police reports, father bastard children, etc. This diminishes the "id"

In conclusion, they turn into the kind of scumbags they arrest

I point out the use of a non word by L/C and everybody backs L/C for using it.

So why do you condone the use of non words?

Neocon I know this guy who has been a cop in a city in the mid Atlantic region for 32 years. He pointed out this crummy motel one time and told me a story about something that happened there. He said a garbage man was having relations with a 250 lb prostitute and he dropped dead from a heart attack. He ant on to say that the girls pimp showed up a short time later and the pimp was riding a bicycle and wearing a Macdonald s uniform
I think he made up that story because prostitutes are thin and pimps drive nice cars and wear nice clothes.
What do you think. Is he LYING?
Cops don't lie! Besides, hookers come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and genders. Pimps around here are few and far apart.

Well, I think cops do lie

That cop said pimps these days aren't so much like "Huggy Bear" on Starsky and Hutch, but many "playahs" will manipulate a drug addicted pig to go out and make money for the both of them

Is it true the price of a street prostitute is lower near the end of the month?

Is it true that some cops on day shift are still legally drunk when they come to work in the morning?

I have told a dying gunshot victim that she'll be fine. I knew she was dying. Was I lying to her? Technically yes. But I have never lied under oath.

Huggy Bear was not a pimp. He was a street informant!

Hooker charge whatever they can get I guess. I don't know. Ask your buddy Larry Mondello. I heard he props the male pros!

I never worked days except for OT.

Dying declarations are taken from suspects not victims.

OK, it was way back in 1979 when I got my undergrad degree from UB in this kind of stuff, so I did a little research. I found something from Fordham Law School, so I guess dying declaration rules of evidence only apply to dying Jesuit victims, but not regular people

Thank you for clarifying that for me but I think you are wrong. I thinks it's either. But what I know about hearsay rules and stuff like that because I watch Car 54 Where are You and you watch cool shows like "Night Heat"
I learn everything I know from TV shows
I never watched Night Heat. In fact I don't watch much TV at all, especially the cops shows, just too phony. The closest cop show to reality I have seen was "Barney Miller"!

Are you sure you aren't the guy who used to post as "Night Heat"?

Or is it just a coincidence that you started posting when he stopped posting?

By the way, I like the rack on that detective chick on Special Victim's Unit show. It's not that they are extra big,but I like the way she presents them, especially when they film her walking toward the camera.

If she was real, she would go far on most police departments, and I am not talking about her cop abilities.

Neocon, you should check out this website. I have been kicked off there under many screen names and many registered accounts about 7 years ago. They have my IP blocked now

I think we can all relate in one way or another to this ... especially the last paragraph!
Thoughts from a Suffolk PD officer who retired in '89.
Just before retiring, some young puppy was busting my chops about how law enforcement has changed, and the system is improving for the best. I just smiled and gave him a little laugh.
He asked what was so funny. I told him that I felt sorry for him. When asked why, I told him, "Because in about 15 years, THIS is going to be your good old days."
We all saw the change in our jobs. I came on in 1970. I used to tell the rookies that our academy lasted 3 months. They gave us a stick, a gun, a dime, and kicked us out into the street. They told us: If you need help, use the dime. If you can't get to a phone, use the stick. If using the stick pisses him off, use the gun.
And the first order we received when we were assigned to a precinct was from our field sergeant. His order was "Don't you EVER bother me, kid."
Law enforcement then, was much different than the current mission. We delivered babies, got rough in the alley when we needed to, made "Solomon-like" decisions at least once a tour, and often wound up being big brother to the kid we roughed up in that alley a year or so ago. And, for some reason, none of that managed to get on a report. And the department didn't really want to know. All they wanted was numbers, and no ripples in the pond.
Because of the changing times, and the evolution of law enforcement, the modern young officers will never see that form of policing, and of course this is best. The current way is the right way... now. But it was different then (ergo, the Dinosaur Syndrome).
When it's time to go, we wonder if we're going to miss the job. After all, other than our kids and a few marriages, it was the most important thing in our lives. Actually, it was the other way around. The job was first, but only another cop could understand how I mean that.
But have faith, brother! After a short time of feeling completely impudent,(after all, you're just John Q. now), reality hits like a lead weight.
It's not the job we miss after all. It's what we, as individuals, had accomplished while in this profession that we miss. The challenge of life and death, good and bad, right and wrong, or even simply easing the pain of some poor bastard for a while, someone we will never see again.
What exactly did you ''accomplish''? There's more crime now than there ever was!

I don't know any Night Heat. At least by that name. If I remember correctly it was some corny Canadian TV NYC knock off show. All BS, like most of those NYC cop shows, including SVU.

I am not concerned whether SVU is realistic. I don't care what the show is about. I know her rack is real to me.

Here is a realistic courtroom scene
