Not all cops are bad, just most of them. Most of them are like fruit that never ripened. Ex-high school jocks & nerds that are now drunk with abusive power. Hopefully you raised your son right "policemom"

Good to hear.

Policemom, remind your son about compassion, fairness, & the archaic concept known as the "presumption of innocence."

Remind him that he is NOT judge, jury, & executioner.

Remind him that his role is one of public servant hired to protect & serve his ENTIRE community, not just those members that he agrees with.

Remind him of the oath he took when he became an officer to "uphold & defend the Contitution" in its entirety, not just the parts he agrees with.

For example, remind him that our Constitution protects us against unreasonable searches & seizures without warrant or probable cause.

Remind him that he should not interrogate & harass people just because he can.

Remind him that as a law enforcement officer, he's supposed to enforce all laws, not just the laws he agrees with.

Remind him that he has ears & that he should use them. Remind him that there are two sides to every story and that the person who calls the police first isn't always the "victim."

Finally, remind him that all people deserve to be treated with the same respect & civility that he hopefully gives you.

Policemom, I challenge you to having your son read this little list of reminders and then gauge his response. If he's hostile to this list or instantly dismisses it, well, need I say more?

Can you do this Policemom? Can you?

I totally agree--I think. I'm trying to figure out what you said, or tried to say. I'm getting dizzey reading it. Please comment on some of the other articles . Please! In some cases you make more sense then many of the other comments on different issues. Now I'm getting the Crown Royal out and I'm going to try to figure out what 'drive on new police car to sall it' means.

from policemom
Reply to "Enlightened Rogue" that you did ask me to read his/her comments. The following are my comments.

I agree with everything they say cops should remember while performing their duties and I practice that each and every day. I don't judge anyone and I always get all sides of a story before forming my opinion and often times it's not just two sides, it may be many more. Because I am fair and take my job seriously, is probably the reason I have been asked to be a detective several different times, for more than half of my nearly 25 year career and I now supervise detectives in my agency.

With that said, the same things should be remembered when people judge the cops. The cops also deserve to be respected and not prematurely judged only because of the actions of a few bad ones. It is also safe to say that almost all of the good cops would have no problem getting rid of the bad cops, because we don't want to be stereotyped because of their bad judgement. We're always trying to do the right thing and to protect the public we serve.

What I disagree with is that, you say, there are more bad cops than good. Unfortunately, most of the time you don't hear about all of the good that your police officers do. The media seems to spend an awful lot of time reporting about the bad cops and how they have failed but this is a small percentage. I have seen this many times over my career. So I say again, please don't judge us all because of the actions of a few. We don't like them any more than you do.

Keep one thing in mind. There are good and bad people in EVERY profession.

Yet another good reason to end Prohibition II and stop letting illicit drug profits and the crime they fertilize ruin our country. Get the profit out of drugs and the drugs out of the hands of criminals!
