A cop is a slang term used to describe police, constables, sheriffs, prison guards and other law enforcement officers. The usage of the word "cop" to refer to law enforcement may have been derived from the verb cop, which means to take or seize and does not come from any acronym, such as Constables On Patrol.[1][2]

arguing about what cop means is not the point y,all should be concerned about the status of the officer i have heard from someone that he has broke one leg and one arm but this is just hear say but to all of u arguing about what the correct term is you should be ashamed of yourself

Firstly, no one is arguing. Secondly, as for being ashamed, I have read many a post on these forums that qualify as shameful. The discourse above most assuredly does not fall into such a category.

Lastly, this is a message forum and everyone is entitled to posting their opinion, regardless of what that opinion may be. If you do not like the opinion of others or if you disagree with the subject matter of said opinions, then by all means, stay off the forums.

What's your point! I am very sorry he was injured in the accident, but what has that got to do with us discussing the origin of the term COP? I'm sure he's proud to be called a COP, just as I and all of the humans that wear the badge, but to critize someone because of this is showing your true colors!

i found it quite a silly statement in the local paper when they wrote it was another of a police officers dangers of the job,,, i found it more to be a who ever was there sort of accident... this isnt cold hearted in any way shape or form but what did this have to do with the mans job.. i live just up the road from the towing yard where both vehicle were sitting,,, is amazing anyone survived from either vehicle
