Actually No. It was in responce to DT4E31.
He seems to be a police officer and actually believes that protect & serve stuff.
He could be trying to say that most Officers try to protect and serve. I have a few friends that are LEOs in NoVA, and they believe in what they do.
I may be a minority, but I believe most LEOs do want to protect and serve.
I do think that DT4E31 could find a better way of saying that, if that is what he means.
The list of officers with those thoughts is dwindling, I spoke with an officer the otehr week who was going to retire in two days, 23 years total on the force, I thanked him for his service mentioning tht it was one job I wouldn't want.
His reply was a little disheartening, he said that he tells the newer guys to "Just treat it like a job, show up, do your job, get paid, put your time in, and get out at 20"
It's not the overall job of the PD to save anyone, while it is part of the job, their main task is to pick up the pieces afterward, and try to get the suspect in front of a judge and jurry.
IMHO it is the individual who is ultimately responsible for their safety, not the PD.
