    Well this enforces my theory all along...

    Found this quite interesting. Kinda solidifies what I've been saying all the while. The LEO's with the attitudes thinks their the only ones with the right to carry on the hip.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------This guy was replying to someone else on another forum.----------------------

    Please allow me to dispel your cheery viewpoint, though it does pain me to do so. I was a police officer for three years in a decent sized metro department. I also did some undercover work for a few other departments, both large and small. The reason that I am no longer a police officer is because I really could not stand seeing the daily trampling of the Bill of Rights that I hold so dear.

    If you really believe that police officers believe that they are "on the same team" as those of us who legally carry, you are grossly mistaken. While there are undoubtedly officers who know and believe in Bill of Rights (I was one of them), the overwhelming majority believe that "civilians" (they mistakenly believe themselves otherwise) should not be running around with firearms. For most police officers, the gun is not a tool to be used for defense, but a symbol of power. Make no mistake: They do not like citizens legally carrying their greatest symbol of power.

    They don't want Joe sixpack to have the same rights as them now, do they?

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    Most cops definitely think they are of a higher, jedi-like, quality of humans than the rest of us. If you ever get a chance to eavesdrop on some officers talking shop, pay attention to how they refer to citizens. They call people civilians, suspects, or subjects. Little else.

    I am getting a dose of the beginning stages of that mentality right now on another forum.

    Just about any of these posts:

    Remember, future CSP right there.

    Probably a future recipient of a 1983 civil rights deprivation suit as well if he continues the same arrogance.

    I recall studies about this and positions of authority and "group think" mentality.
