I feel for LEO they have one of the hardest jobs out there, but it's getting harder and harder for me to trust an officer. Back when I was a kid they were the guys you could count on to tell the truth and help you. My heroes.....not any more. I guess all it takes is a few bad apples.
The charge was bogus and not warranted.
The deputy is an odd ball and does not represent all LEOs out there.
It saddens me to see this is the sign of the times.....you can't trust anybody anymore.
Sorry LEO229 you have a tuff job....stay safe.
Back in my home town we had a Sheriff's office and some moron deputies.
I remember the Sheriff ordering me in his car and then demanding I show him my shoe threads. I know EXACTLY what he was looking for since a neighbor of mine kicked in a door to a summer cabin.
He then accused ME of breaking into a cabin behind my house. Had he been kind to me I would have told him anything he wanted to know. I really did not care for the neighbor kid so what did Icare.
I learned at that moment the importance in being kind and giving someone the benefit of the doubt. So to this day... I treat ALL people I meet with kindness in the hopes that they will tell me what I need to know.
And it has worked! I knew back in the day as a child you did not need to be a hard ass to get a confession or information. People want to be treated with a certain level of respect.
But this is not something they teach in the academy. This is a life lesson you have to discover on your own to see that it works.
And now with the news broadcasting stories only aboutall the "bad cops" out there this is how people begin to see ALL cops. There are far more good cops than bad but people do not comment on them.
So I do not blame anyone for having a distrust in the police. They have been programmed and indoctrinated by the media for years.
