Somewhat off topic, but in reply to the pictures posted by NewZealandAmerican...
The one with the cruisers lacking wheels? Priceless.
A friend of mine is a local (city) officer, & some of the cars for his station are parked on a public street within less than a block from the station, on an overpass, with street lights, no cover for at least 50 yards in any direction (unless you count jumping off the bridge, which would be quite painful).
They got tagged.
I don't condone the crime, but I admire the spunk. Someone got points for that.
Now if they'd only use their powers for good...
And even with the various bad encounters I've had or read about or watched videos of, I can't bring myself to issue a blanket "I hate cops" or even "I don't trust cops", because I know this one guy who happens to be a cop, & he's one of the really good guys, & I can't believe he's the only one out there.
(Actually, I know he's not. It's just that the bad ones usually get more attention.)
I'm with you for the most part MKEGal, I don't hate all cops, but i do hate most cops. Just not sure exactly where that falls between 51 and 99 percent. I know there are a few good cops, but of course most cops are just revenue collecters and "policy enforcers" for the municipal corporations rather than being oathkeepers and defending the rights of the people. I think I am willing to adjust my "I hate most cops" setting to 51 % I think that is generous. Some of you may think even that is very un-reasonable of me that 51 percent of cops are not good.
