But tell you what I try to be respectful I listen and most important I am not rude I have learned being in the business I am in "the good people over the bad" its not easy but I approach situations as mentioned above first and foremost . I have made mistakes in judgement many times I admit that and when I did I always made a point to apologize to who ever concerned.

I think that a lot of people have forgotten that although the job of a law enforcement officer is to "protect and serve", that does not mean they are your babysitter, marriage and family counselor or referree for your little squabbles. Perhaps if people quit calling the police to deal with their out of control child who won't get off the computer, or their neighbor who parked 2 inches onto their property and all the petty little problems that should be dealt with in a civil manner, the police would be less apt to be annoyed with the people on some of these calls they go on.

Law enforcement is here to keep the peace and keep people safe, not solve all your life problems.

You know what? I am glad you can tell good and bad people apart. Sometimes the good people are the bad people and when you get to know the bad people, they are good. Jeez I think I am making sense. So you think an officer should apologize when the are wrong in the assessment of people. What officers try to display at a scene is called "command presence". They are the alpha male on scene. Can't have two. If they look or act weak, then they may just get killed. Bad guys are sizing up cops all the time to see if they can take one down. Now that may be a whole lot of hoo ha, but there could be that one time they let their guard down and end up being carried by six. No officer wants to have someone tell their loved ones that they are not coming home anymore. So if you feel like you are not Mr. Important, TOO BAD. Get over it. By the way. I love the Panthers too. See we do have something in common.

You have a point and the police should not have to be involved in these kind of "petty little problems" but that is what they get paid to do. You are right that law enforcement is her to keep the the peace and keep people same, but law enforcement has been charged with the responsibility of serving the public and that means helping solve the petty problems that "annoy" the officer. The officer needs to stop and "step back" once in a while and realize that this "stupid, dumb incident" is what he/she thinks it is but to the person or persons that the officer is dealing with this is a big deal and it is important. How hard is it to show a little empathy to the person you are dealing with?

You know you can be the "Alpa" without being overbearing. You did "make sense" with regards to good people and bad people, but that is a difficult concept to grasp. Not everyone is a bad guy and there is a difference between bad people and good people. How you treat them is a reflection of not only yourself but all other police officers. There is nothing wrong with explaining your actiions if you are "wrong in the assesment of people", it gives you credibiltiy, and that is what people want, that is what you shoud want. If you think that makes you weak, maybe you need to rethink why you are in law enforcement

I totally understand what you are saying to a point we as people should respect you officers for what you do for us to "serve and protect" when you are on a call we expect you to take control you are trained to do just that. Its too bad we couldnt meet and talk I think after we talked we would have a better understanding about our concerns. These forums are great for all of us to give our opinions but sometimes its taken out of context.As to having something in common " GO PANTHERS"

If the cops are waiting outside the bars to nail revellers as soon as they set foot on the public sidewalk, I'd sneak out the back door of the establishment.
Unfortunately that is exactly what happens! You walk out of the bar- they ask you if you have been drinking- then they arrest you for a drunk in public! A misdemeanor! I could take care of myself completely but since I was leaving a bar I was "causing trouble". Does the campus know that we go to school to better ourselves and some stupid cop who need to increase his arrest numbers so he gets his OVERTIME comes around and ruins your record! I was just walking on a sidewalk! The cops are getting out of control!
