You seem to have had a bad experience with police. Maybe you were arrested for DWI, drug sales, a domestic...so be it.
Making false generaliations about all cops is no better that someone doing the same to someone because of the race or religion.
You really look foolish.
I have NEVER had a bad experience with a cop. I've gotten tickets and such, and although I would have loved to have gotten out of them, I just don't have the right chest size to do so I guess. I wish I could say I was wrongly accused for the tickets I got, but that's not the case. I think cops have a tough job, and in general perform it well.

My problem with cops is their off duty behavior, and above the law attitude, and while I never said they ALL act this way, the generalizations made are not false.

Most of your post was drivel. You obviously frown down on cops but would side with them over criminals, well at least they better then criminals.
The wife comment was even more retarded for you to assume that. i know they should all marry harley riders who never cheat on their ladies. Never use every nice day riding around bar to bar instead of spending time w/ family and kids. Yeah ok, choose the Harley rider right? Yes the vast majority love their kids and family, but you see how nice it is to prejudice and stereotype.
Maybe the golfer or the fisherman is worse who leaves his family behind each weekend? See, stereotyping is dumb, well usually.
As far as driving and the vehicle laws, honestly does anybody obey them. If all cops did to the letter I bet they'd be the only ones doing the speed limit and stopping at stop signs besides little old ladies.
Every profession had bad apples and cops have plenty because they do need A+ personalities to deal with scum and predators who they are confronted with everyday.
Just cut them some slack for heavens sake, b/c when they do actually screw up they will pay the piper as hard if not harder then anyone. Job loss, jail time and personal disgrace to name a few.
Honestly
Well, If you read my drivel, you will see that I stated that I will usually side with the cops, and have always done, with the exception of the ocean Beach cowboys. You are the second one to state I am making statements about ALL cops, and that was not my intent. Many? yes All? no. I just seem to know a LOT of women who have dated cops, only to find out they're married. But I am quite sure that not every cop cheats on his wife. I am sure that men from all professions cheat on their wives (except harley riders), but no other profession sticks out so blatantly, at least in the stories I have heard.

Riding a bike is a hobby, not a profession. Don't think for a second they are all jobless, or cut lawns for a living. I know you were making a point about generalizations, but I'm just saying.

That can be said about anyone or any profession. Stockbrokers have an after work attitude as well of doing c-o-k-e, sleeping with h-o-o-k-e-r-s, gambling, dwi, swuandering other peoples money, and cheating on their wives.

Good point, but are stockholders paid to enforce the law?

You're all over the place.

CIA and FBI agents have been found guilty of corruption. It can happen to anyone. Cops are human. But on average 99% of cops are professional law abiding citizens...they are held to a higher standard than the general public.

BTW Harley what do you do for a living?

I'm all over the place? LOL I'll try to type slower, ok? First of all, I'm not talking "major crimes" here.

Ya know what Tom, I'm not going to go through this again, and state what I believe the cops do that's wrong, when not on duty. I've stated it a few times, and your response is that CIA & FBI agents have been found guilty of corruption? You're AnIdiot with no comprehension skills, so much so that at this point I don't believe you capable of passing the test, and are probably just a wannabe.

Good luck

I forgot to add, I run an air freight company, and before you say it.....Yes, the industry has many sleazy characters in it. The TSA and customs is doing their best to keep an eye on it, but I guess there's only so much they can do.

I agree completely...This guy Tom (aka Donut boy)
is a complete moron.
I hope that he is a wanna be, it would be scary to think that he really is a cop.
I guess that there are all kinds lurking on the internet.

It's quite obvious you have a hatred for cops either because of your criminal background or because you failed to get the job.

Whatever it is I feel sorry for you.

I

I didn't apply for the job, so I couldn't have failed it. I doubt you took the test, but if you did, I KNOW you couldn't pass it.

By the way Sherlock, I don't think a few traffic tickets qualifies as a criminal record. Doesn't quite make me a "perp" your favorite word you learned from your favorite tv show.
Loser!

On his computer he can play the role of anything he wants. I guess it makes up for his role of being the neighborhood punching bag in his childhood.
