"I don't like people and they don't like me (due to LEO status). I am introduced at parties as the cop. I am yelled at on the streets. I don't trust any of them. They don't like me and I don't like them. This was not the case before I became a cop. This has come to pass because of all the horrible things I have heard about cops from people I have chosen to protect. I will still protect them and I will gladly make that ultimate sacrifice for one of them, but they don't deserve it. This vocation is a calling, not just a job."
"I don't dislike people, I just don't trust them.....AT ALL."
"I'm with most other cops...I dislike most people, and don't trust anyone."
"There are 3 kinds of people in the world:
and the Potential Criminals.
Where do you fit?"
"I'm not a racist, I hate everybody. All get treated like doggy doo until proven otherwise. And no, I would not make the ultimate sacrifice to save someone. Sorry, but I got a daughter to think about and she comes first. So, if your ex-hubby has a gun to your head and you expect me to do something other than take a shot from a distance, I hope you know your prayers, because I'm waiting it out unless he takes a shot at me. If you happen to be in the way of my return fire, oh well. Maybe you should have dumped him a few years ago when you found he was a abusive, pot smoking meth head. And yes, I know he only beats you because he loves you."
These are all quotes from sworn police officers across the country.
I used to respect all LEOs, until they did something to lose that respect.
I have now officially reversed that process.
Raised by a LEO. Used to think the world of them.
Very, very disappointed.
