Police Officer 3

It's a brutal occupation. Basically your job only really starts when someone else's life has gone for shit in some way. You deal with victims and criminals all day. Try going home to a quiet normal family life after 10 hours of that every day.

I've had two friends in the profession. A high school friend who got chewed up and burned out by it at an early age and left town to start a new life after the job cost him a marriage and a neighbour who just got a transfer to homicide after working in the low track part of town as a beat cop for a decade.

Interestingly the neighbour finds the job tolerable after having served in the armed forces and done two tours of peacekeeping duty in the Baltic States.

Potentially a soul-killing occupation. You deal with shitheads, mopes, skanks, grifters and assorted assholes on the one hand, and the victims of the previously mentioned on the other. In between you get scofflaw drivers, domestic arguments, noise complaints, drunken teenagers, and occasional crowd control. While this may not kill your sense of humor, it will probably instill a level of cynicism in you that others will find grim.

Should you be successful, and rise in your profession, you will likely specialize in one or two areas of crime, be that homicide, robbery, fraud, burglary, or the like. This will have the benefit of providing you with contact with the more accomplished of the first group listed in this review.

Its not a job I'd want, but I'd hate to live in a society without them.

Personally, I don't like the police, and believe more than half of them are probably corrupt. It probably isn't great for a cop to know that there are a lot of people like me out there. However, when you see a police officer standing in line for an ice cream or a sub, it kind of makes you wonder.

I respect the good ones, and what they do to protect. Living in a big city tho, you couldnt pay me enough to do what they have to put up with on a day by day basis. You hear about them getting shot all the time.

Let's just say I got mixed feelings about the police. You got to give the ones credit for serving in high crime places for just meager pay. Moreover, there are indeed some in it for good noble reasons and that  of course deserves high praise but in plenty of cases they get less praise for what they actually deserve. However, with no intention on my part to construct any type of diatribe against police, I feel I must tell it like it really is. There are indeed many (i'm going to say a sizeable minority of 40 percent) in it for the sheer power trip and this is obviously no secret. It is also astonishing when you look at the percentage of police that are women batters which are around 24 percent. That is three times the population of U.S reported cases of women battering (which is around 8 percent)!!!! There are some police that are in it because they are actually attracted to violence and they're some that actually have criminal records themselves. I'll admit this is confusing for me because I thought the invasive police tests would weed out bad individuals from entering law enforcement but unfortunately there are plenty of police stations that seem lenient on this and let a cop in despite there past (because the police stations have a tendency to look  for assertive personality traits and etc. and this could easily be confused with an individual that is aggressive and/or violent instead). There was a video on youtube where a cop threatened to fabricate charges on some 20 year old just because the officer didn't like to be told he was wrong (when he actually was wrong). Also, if another cop sees their partner do something illegal they will always cover for them due to the blue code of silence. It's almost like a convicted felon in jail where a jailbird snitches out another jailbird. If that jailbird does snitch, that jailbird's reputation is foreover a snitch. It's the same with officers because if an officer snitches out another officer it is curtains for that officers career and their forevoer thought of as an individual that ratted out their partner (even if their partner was guilty). Also, if your a citizen that has been mistreated by the police good luck filling out a police complaint form at some of these police stations. They will say they have to run it by them first so they throw the complaint away -or- they actually find a reason to arrest you on fabricated charges. As a matter of fact they are suppose to give out complaint forms freely and with no resistence.  Another strange factoid is the intelligence tests they give police (It is from the wunderlick organization) where if you actually score too high you are unqualified to be a cop lol. This explains the bully didactic not so bright nature of some of the power tripping cops that some people and I have encountered before. One doesn't have to look hard to hear a case like this. This all in all doesn't make the good eggs of the police force who do an outstanding job and in which i'm glad citations and our taxes go to their salary instead. 

UPDATE*** Yes I know this is an old post. I saw the listing titled " viewers who post their old for more votes". More funnies please hehehe

In capitalist society, they serve the function of enforcing capitalist rule, upholding capitalist law (law made by the capitalist class) and defending the massive wealth of the rich from the working poor. So, police in capitalist society get one star: *

In socialist society, police serve the necessary social function of preserving order, maintaining the rule of law, and defending socialism from the nefarious activities of reactionary counter-revolutionaries seeking to restore capitalism. The above star rating is in regards to police operating in a socialist system.

If you have ever lived in a small town you know they have nothing better to do than arrest young kids at a party. Once I was at a friends house doing things kids do when the police show up and barge into his house acting like complete assholes saying racist slurs to my black friend, The police let all of the drivers and pretty girls leave which dosn't make any sence. Then arrested all the kids who couldn't drive, all because we looked like punk kids. From that point on I lost all respect for police.

I'm gonna tell everyone to STFU (ask around to translate the chatspeak) about cops. I may not always get along with all of them, but this week we lost a 24 year old officer in Glendale to some loser ass felon who shot him in the face with a .357 mag. This bastard shouldn't have even been let out of prison and now we have a dead officer because we've gotten too soft on these asshole felons.

Yes, a place to voice my anger! Lol, well for the most part there are two problems I see with the police force in all towns in all states. First, the police officers that are in downtown areas are not respected, they are restricted to how they can serve, and god forbid anyone shoot a crack fiend, its always seen as the cops fault. Second, the cops that deserve to be shot themselves, such as Officer EF Mckelroy Humble Police Department, sit around in dark areas, where they are not visable, where they know people are going to speed, and pull over 5 cars at once, write 5 tickets and meet thier quota of the day. These lazy bastards need to be retrained, and then sent to Kerplakistan, or something like that. Let them have a taste of what it really means to serve and protect. Rights, liberty, justice, all these things are set aside so the city/police dep can make more money on middle class America. I feel better now!

There are many types of Police Officers from different walks of life. Some truly are judgemental dicks. Others are genuinely cool people. I've thought about it at different times in my life and I know I would be good. I like the officers who really are concerned about fighting true violent crime and could care less about Joe smoking a bowl.

I have total respect for those who truly serve and protect.I have worked with and known many a fine officer.However,I have also seen and dealt with abusive and corrupt ones.These are the ones who lose the respect of the community for the job.Police need to stop covering for the ones who need to be removed from the job.They also deserve to be paid much more,but they should be held to the highest standards.

When I was a child and our family used to go on vacations, we often got pulled over by the police and accused of speeding, even though local cars had been passing us. It always happened when we were out of state. Years later, I was driving in Colorado, with my cruise control set at 56, and they pulled me over and ticketed me for going 72 - which was impossible! He would not even let me leave until I wrote out a check for the fine and handed it over to him. Those kinds of officers are not much better than petty criminals themselves. However, my father always taught me that the police are like people in all professions: there are lots of good ones, with a few bad ones thrown in. Over the years, nearly all the officers I have encountered have been brave and courteous people, and I'm thankful we have them around. We couldn't really live without them.

I think it is quite obvious that without police officers, this country would be in complete anarchy ! These men and women are totally underrated and should be thanked more often for their hard underpaid work. Thank you too all the police officers out there that protect me everyday. I appreciate it so much. (this job is obviously not for everyone however, I don't even think I could do it.)

This is a great occupation if you're into eating hamburgers and doughnuts, chain smoking, sitting around scratching your butt while dreaming of your retirement home, hiding from dangerous criminals while hassling respectable, law-abiding citizens, making targets of Afro-American males, generally being corrupt, being on the take, being above the law, making moronic wiseass comments to taxpayers who pay your salary/pension, beating your wife and children, committing suicide, shaking down drug dealers for their stash and then doing it up yourself, getting totally faced at the tavern after work and then driving around, knowing you'll get a free pass by your oinker buddies if you kill someone with your car, having your butt kissed constantly by those of the drooler mentality, and essentially taking up space while feeding at the public trough. Most police officers are total losers, pathetic, threatened punks who are so terrified of the world that they have to hide behind a shield and gun: take these two security blankets away from them and 90% of them are total pussies. Most of them are also just out-and-out idiots who are incapable of making a living any other way. And as 1/2 of them are crooks, and the other 1/2 are looking the other way. not rocking the boat and maintaining The Blue Wall of Silence, they basically all suck. Cowards, parasites, phonies, thieves and closet fags. Yep, that's our boys in blue!!!
