I have a Master's degree in Psychology. Independent research has proven that most police officers have similar personality traits. They do not do well in school, they are rebellious towards authority figures, they get extremely agitated if they don't get their way. The fact is, the people who are hired to be police officers are the kind of people wh have no business being police officers.
If you don't believe me: try this: next time you get a traffic citation, hire an attorney and figh it in court. The cop who writes the ticket will be extremely agitated because you are challenging him in court even though thatis your right. Also, get ready, if you win your case, the cop and all hi buddies will start harrassin you: following you forno reason, stopping yo for no reason, searching your vehicle for no reason; etc.

you can put down the police officers but can't handle your faults. Walk in their shoes before you run your mouth.

You seem very defensive, so I will be, as well. When you refer the the officers you are using a very generalized statement. It bothers me that you are ASSUMING that the officers in Waveland are this way. They are not. In every profession there are people who are not fit, that's how things work. However, it's sickening that you would post those false lightly general statements. It would be like me saying everyone who works on a tugboat is ignorant and dumb simply because I knew someone who was. Stop generalizing and look at the big picture. I'm ASSUMING you're a pessimist. Just guessing....

Your defensive because you know I am right. Research does not lie. With a name like Hancock1, I think I know who you are. And yeah, your'e going to defend your officers because you are one of them. Pessimist, olptimist, wtf ever. The facts don't lie. And I have been the victim of abuse by a punk coward who thinks he owns the world just because he has a tin badge on his chest on more than one occasion. You are just po'd beause I have the guts to speak th truth.

Actually, not an officer. Just a working citizen of Hancock county.

I respect our officers. Like I said before, you can't use statistics to generalize the police officers in our area. It's stereotyping and just not right.

Hahahahaah. Research does lie, actually. There is this little thing called bias that skews results.

Like I've said before and I'll say again, I only posted on topix to make my opinion about WAVELAND officers being able to carry taser guns. I truly believe it is a safety precaution that they deserve.

I'm sorry that you were treated poorly, but you really need to let it go or press charges against those people specifically. If I had to guess, they are no longer working for the city of waveland anymore.

Hard to press charges when the judge won't let you. The judge told me that I could not press charges because police officers are immune from proscution. Tases are just another tool tht cops use to harrass people. Taser's should be outlawed.

Concerned citizen needs to back off of our police officers, You can not judge every person in a particular career field, based on an interaction with one person. Also, a judge can not stop you from pressing charges, IF a valid case was there an attorney could be retained and a law suit filed. Get the chip off of your shoulder and stop attacking our police! It is so easy for people to slander them but when you have a crime committed against you they are the first people you call!

I could care less, to be quite honest. Because those words do not describe me, which is unfortunate for you. It seems like someone with a "degree" in psychology would know how to offend someone.

I would recommend an anger management class or seeing a psychiatrist. You have a lot of built up aggression and topix is not the place for it.
