  • The cops suck

    I know there are still good cops out there but quite a few 'law enforcers' break laws and abuse power. I hate to see cops taking handicap spots and taking up to parking spaces. And some use their sirens and lights just to pass traffic. So that's my opinion on cops.

  • Some are on power trips

    I once approached a city bus with a small antique chair at the Lechemere T stop in Cambridge, Mass. When an MBTA officer stopped me and told me I couldn't board with it. The chair was smaller than a baby carriage, which COULD be brought onto the bus, but okay, fine, safety issues no doubt. The kicker is this: while she was issuing "orders" and swaggering in her uniform (with her back to the bus), two men boarded the bus carrying a huge, boxed, flat screen TV. I kept telling her, "Look, look, why can they take that on?" and she smiled and said, "I don't see anything!" Freaking abuse of power, rules enforced when and as she wanted to enforce them. It really was all about "her".

  • Ruined my Chirstmas

    I've never had any cop help me. The only time I have ever had cops interact with me is when they were trying to get me a ticket or give me a hard time about a tail light or something. Yesterday on Christmas, I passed through a little town in my state on my way to my aunt's house. First time I had been through this town since I was a kid (almost 20 years ago) and I was not sure of the speed limit so I did slow down going through town, but it was not slow enough and a cop pulled me over. I explained my situation and that I did not know that I was speeding (I'm still not really even sure that I was) the cop gave me a ticket anyway and after she wrote it, she told me to have a Merry Christmas. Who tells someone that after they have just wrote them a ticket. This ticket ruined my Christmas and I now officially hate cops with a passion. I feel like they are here to do nothing but harass me and not help me at all. I feel like a cop might even do harm to me if they could get away with it. I know a lot of black folks feel with way and I don't blame them. I'm not black, I am white and I feel this way too. I am a law abiding citizen, I work as an accountant and I am currently studying for the CPA exam, so I'm not some thug at all and I am not a careless driver. I am starting to see why black folks feel the way they do about the cops. I think cops are evil.

  • Tough Job is not an excuse for us to allow them to abuse society.

    Genuinely speaking most people believe the cops are just doing their job. They enforce the laws we pass, and our removing scum from our communities. The reality is the prey on our communities. Their goal is to turn in as much crime as possible to justify receiving more money. This turns a protector into a predator. Recently my son was taught in school the Police officers protect citizen rights. However the is so far from the truth. They violate our rights regularly to get the believed criminal. To them this is perfectly acceptable as they need to get the job done. However there is a right way to do this. And for those who enforce the law, it is important they follow the law for citizens rights just as much as catching those that don't follow the law.

  • I hate them

    They are mean. They are not nice. They are not good. They are bad. They are bullies. They are not nice to people. They have treated me badly. They have not been nice to freinds of mine. They have not treated me with respect, they have told my im an ass

  • Cops can be good people, but belong to a fucked up system

    There are some cops that are genuinely good individuals who go into law enforcement with the intent of helping the community they live in and keeping it safe, etc. However, they are part of a problem that goes beyond the individual and has more to do with the core system of law enforcement in the United Sates- a problem that goes back years and years. This problem is one of corruption, racial/class bias, overwhelming hypocrisy and dangerous obedience to a government that is corrupt and flawed to its core as well.
    Like I said, a lot of people (there was one person on this very thread who was going to school to become a police officer) go into law enforcement with positive intentions. Sadly, though, the people who are often in charge do not share the same intentions.

  • Respect is Earned

    But lately, I don't see the majority of police doing much to earn the respect of the general public. They extort, they lie, they even murder on occasion. I understand that many police officers are good, honest people trying to make a difference, but many AREN'T.

    In fact, too many police officers aren't good an honest. So, until this country's police forces start actually self regulating themselves and putting the rights and safety of the communities they serve first, I will always distrust law enforcement.

  • Da' COPS Carry Hollow Point Bullets In Their Guns. Hollow Point Bullets Are So Deadly That Soldiers In War Are Not Allowed To Use Them.

    An unarmed person of color is shot every 27 hours by the police in this country. A group of demonstrators gather 1x per year outside the 3rd precinct in bayshore, long island ny. They demonstrate against persons killed while in police custody. Take for instance - an incident conveyed to me by these demonstrators - about a 13 year old boy. He was arrested for possessing a small amount of marijuana. While being held at the central islip court house jail - he sustained head injuries - i suppose da' COPS injured him - i don't know for sure. He was denied medical attention for 3 hours. At this point he succumbed to his injuries and died. FACE IT. MANY OF THE POLICE HAVE BECOME NO DIFFERENT THAN THE VIOLENT CRIMINALS THEY ARE PAID TO PROTECT US AGAINST. If You Would Like - Google: Officer Down Memorial Page. This Provides A List Of Cops "Killed In The Line Of Duty." Perhaps Have A Few Laughs - Jollies If You Will. They Say In This Country That: Fuckin With Someone Is A Lot Of Fun - But "PAYBACK IS A REAL BITCH." Please View On YouTube: Natalie Imbruglia - Torn (Official Video). When It Comes To Blind Authority - I'm All Out Of Faith Too. BTW - After Speaking To These Demonstrators Out Side The 3rd Precinct - I Called Channel 12 News On Long Island. I Suggested That They Cover This Demonstration. Their Reply: "Oh, They Do That Every Year." Here, There Is Something Very Wrong With These "People's" Values.

  • Stupid cops do that

    Real cops. Seriously, this is, with all due respect, a very conspiracy theory type of statement. Hating and hating. Cops that are good do their job. And that's 95% of cops. Cops that do the thing you mention are really idiots in real life. Why do you feel inferior to them I ask?

  • Modern Day Heroes

    I am going to school to become a police officer. I will do everything in my power to bring justice to those who corrupt our society. I want to become someone who will protect loved ones and be a problem solver. I know not ever police officer is good, but not all of them are bad. Cops don't suck, their mis-judged by the media and people they serve. There are two sides to every story, yet the media only captures the side where the police are the bad guy. Without Police the US would still be corrupt and filled with criminals that take justice in their own misguided hands. Although some police do become corrupt too, don't forget even Spiderman had his sour moments. :)

  • PD's are important

    If we should not trust the police to enforce the law, then maybe we shouldn't trust the Armed Forces to defend the nation, maybe we shouldn't trust Firefighters.
    Yes, I understand that there has been a history of police corruption but there are some good cops out there who truly believe in protecting the innocent.

  • They are our protection

    There are good people and there are bad people out there. Sometimes the bad ones just happen to have the job of protecting us or maybe the power got to their heads. It doesn't matter though, they risk their lives for us, even the ones that say they suck and are all bad, even though that's a tremendous lie. Don't stereo type cops.

  • There are good people, and there are bad people

    It's as simple as that. There will always be good cops, and every once in a while there will be bad cops; just like there will be good and bad teachers, priests, politicians, burger flippers, etc. Having lived in multiple areas (including the west coast where cops are chastised), I have never known a cop that had bad intentions. Of course, there will be exceptions, but that's true for any profession. I believe west coast rap, especially N.W.A. Have made police a negative image. I understand the Rodney King case of 1992 was terrible, but the actions of the four LAPD officers does not speak for all policemen.
