Him losing his job would be great, he's obviously not mature enough to weild the law. Hopefully his superiors are decent and honest. However, there's a chance they're not. Police tend to stick together. FYL OP, and I really hope the police in your town are honest, rule-of-law types with integrity.
Police on my town suck. My family and I were threatened to be killed at like midnight one night and my sister called the cops and they couldn't come out because there was little wreck. They just said to protect ourself and shoot them if we had to. Thankfully the girl who threatened to kill us never showed up. We prosecuted the case and it was dropped. Horrible. FYL OP. Good luck with everything.
As the daughter of a cop, I can assure you that the majority of cops actually are not bad. I know almost all of the ones in my city and the neighboring one, from beginning officer to the chief as well as the detectives. Of them all, I would saw only a couple may be arrogant or abusive of their power. The guys stick together and will support each other unless they are dead wrong. They typically won't support someone giving them a bad name. If they do get rough sometimes, you have to remember that they don't know you. For all they know, you have a gun ready to pull and shoot at any moment, and they have to act as such. My dad, like many officers, won't even go into public with my family because he is afraid someone he has arrested will associate us with him and then we will become a target. You have to remember that every time they put on the uniform, they are risking their lives. OP: I suggest calling the PD and asking the officer on desk who the shift commander for 3rd shift was last night. Or, if you are unsure of the shift, ask him what shift Officer ___ was on last night and who the shift commander was. Then have him transfer you to the shift commander's phone. Ask for a meeting. Leave a message if need be. Tonight, I suggest taking a picture of the odometer in your car after you park it for the night as well as a picture of the car in your drive. In the morning, if there is a ticket there, snap the two pictures again. Make sure all the pictures are dated and time stamped.
95% of statistics are made up ;) My father was a cop and the process in Australia is extremely difficult to pass. The weekly tests must have answers that are word for word correct and the practical ones and physically intense. I know of a lot of people who just don't make the cut. Don't be too quick to generalize on a few experiences.
I am a police officer and it makes me sick that I risk my ass day in day out for ungrateful idiots like you. you know absolutely nothing of the world buddy, the difference between me and you as men is that you see trouble and you run away and expect someone else to deal with it, I run to the trouble, you get robbed, who deals with it? you or a friend get threatened, who risks their lives to help? I could go on but u don't deserve my time. I bet all you think you know you got from the media. people like you are just all talk, the amount of shit I have seen and had to do while you go about you everyday probably flipping burgers.
162: Thank you for inadvertently supporting what I said. It isn't easy being an officer or being in the family of an officer. It is nothing but sacrifice and living in a glass house. People watch you from all sides to see if you mess up. Thank you sir for joining the Brothers in Blue and for sacrificing like you do. How often are you honestly thanked for doing your job? If you're like my father, it is next to never.
thank you sweetthing, yeah the thanks are very few and far between but I'm sure like your dad, I don't do the job for recognition. I just hate getting bad mouthed by ignorant idiots when it's my life out there, not theirs. send me a message if you are ever bored, I always have time for good people like yourself
I would also like to note there's kinda a difference between cops who run to danger, and cops who just catch speeders all day. oh and 126, stfu. I don't know all about it but I know my ex has done way more shit than you ever have. He was an Army Ranger, served in Iraq for 2 years and was shot three times. He saved many civilians and US soldiers lives, and on top of that he was the leader of hid platoon. Law school isn't a requirement, but it's a good decision. Because of his service is why many doors are open to him to protect us. If I were him I wouldn't want to protect you, but I know he would cause he's not an immature little prick like you.
While I agree that generalizing and saying "x% of cops are assholes" is likely not correct (without facts and source to back it up). However it often seems to me that a certain type of personality tends towards Police positions (or any positions of power). Some are genuinely good people who want to do a positive service. I have the utmost respect for these people. However, some are assholes who want to go into positions of power because that power was/is lacking in some other parts of their lives. These folks tend to be the ones you hear of at least once a week on the news somewhere in America when someone has been pepper sprayed or had the shit beaten out of them for saying something rude to a police officer. Sorry, I don't give a fuck what you have done to "protect the community" If you are beating the shit out of people for no reason, or writing your ex-girlfriend tickets to feel powerful/get revenge then you fall into the asshole category. People in positions of power (Cops included, but not exclusively) also have a great responsibility not to abuse that power. Those that don't have my utmost respect, as stated before. Those that do abuse that power are the lowest pieces of shit in life as far as I am concerned. Not all cops are villains... not all are heroes. It is real life after all.
cops are abusive in one way or another it is only until they are caught being corrupt that they will either apologize for their behavior or if really serious just leave the force and work with another county. and when I called the police when my house got robbed you know what thy said? "Sorry nothing we can do, no breaking and entering if you see the guy who stole your stuff and can prove it's yours, call us back." that's when I bought a 12-gauge and sit outside my porch now. I'm not a hick either, chicago city boy.
It's like with the muslims, you hear about ONE group of terrorists and everyone assumes all muslims live to bomb everything they see, just because some people do wrong things, doesn't give anyone the rights to put them in the same box as the innocent and honorable people most police officers and muslims are. No matter where in the world, there'll always be a good cop/bad cop scenario
None of the cops I know went to law school, and they work for several different departments here in California. A few of them have bachelors degrees in something unrelated, which apparently helps with the application process. Of the dozen or so cops I know, I only know one or two bad ones. They are, for the most part, above the law.
a lot of my brothers in blue have law degrees, some have forensic sciences degrees etc, that is the ones without prior experience in field work. I didn't go to uni myself as I was in the army and went to Iraq which was looked on as good prior experience but the training is very long and arduous and only the strongest of mind and body got through, I would give my life for any of my brothers and so would you if you knew what we go through for ungrateful dicks to throw it back after watching some crap on the news.
to the officers posting comments ya I get that most of you are legit but when u hear on the news and watch vids of police brutality it's sickening I read a story of a drunk native that was arrested for being drunk in public and he was taken back to the station, hog tied and tasered to death. I also seen a vid of a guy who was on his hands and knees cooperating the whole time and the cop came and punted him in the face while he wasn't looking it was pretty bloody too. you cops will never get the respect you deserve until all the corrupt cops r put in jail which will never happen
i hate that cops always act like people should worship them for ticketing people, and occasionally doing something truly heroic. i respect cops that do their job. but when they bitch and moan about people disrespecting them, all while they abuse their power, then im not going to even feel bad if they die in action. my cousin was raped, but the cops contaminated the dna evidence and the charges were dropped. they didnt make any effort to catch the guy. legally he is still aloud at my school. i get to see him every day, and you know what? the cops at the school give me shit just because im a skater. im actually a good kid, but these arrogant assholes think they know everything based on my physical appearenced. what they dont know is that i was molested and the charges were dropped because they "couldnt find the guy." i gave them his name, phone number, address, work address, and the phone numbers of some of his friends that i knew. ya, he was soooo impossible to find. so dont think the news is the only source to the corruption of police offiicers. i witness it, hear about it, and even experience it
For everyone saying most police officers go to law school, no they don't....I'm not saying they're stupid, but learn what law school is. The vast majority of officers either graduate from some sort of college, or have some military experience. Law school is graduate school. if you attend law school, you're not in it to make a cops salary. You're shooting for something higher, like a lawyer.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. I have nothing against cops but I don't judge them based on there position I judge them on they type of people they are. Some are corrupted by the power like it seems op's ex is. The thing is people are saying that's why I hate cops. the op ex is a dick if he wasn't a cop he would still be a dick. Cops are people some are dicks but there are a lot who truly believe in what they do and would lay their life for someone else. for the good cops out there I thank you for what you do. for the dicks out there go screw yourself.
actually 107, many states and counties only require potential cops to have completed their high school diploma or GED. very few cops go thru further education training. the most that the majority have in most locations is an associates degree in criminal justice which, quite honestly, is a very easy major, but still not required as the police force sends new officers to their own police academies.
Ok, a Cop can just about murder someone in cold blood while on duty and he really only ever risks losing his job. If you give someone a lot of power with almost no accountability what do you think will happen? and everyone saying they are cops or know cops, that is pointless, the most horrific atrocities and evil acts are more often then not committed by people who "think" they are doing the right thing oh, an cops do not go to law school, you go to a training course for like 2 months at a community college and they probably only even hold it there because they can use the gym for free
/facepalm. Who the fuck said cops don't go to law school? If they care about their education and knowing the law, they could, and they should. Not everyone depends on getting by on the bare minimum like you. That's why you end up saying incredibly stupid things like you just did.
Valdrek: here's my policy toward cops. you do something heroic, and I'll treat you like the hero you are. you act like a dick in a power trip, I'll treat you like a dick in a power trip. I personally can't stand people who say that because they hold X position that they should automatically be respected and that their opinions should be gospel. I've met plenty of cops who are genuinely nice people, who like engaging with people and take their job as defenders of the public good seriously. but until I've seen that personally, all you are to me is someone in a position of power. I'll let your actions fill in the blanks. and whoever said cops go to law school....no, most do not. if they have, good for them, it means they'll probably be smarter and more rational about their approach to handling crime. but don't pretend that all of them do.
Can't you report him for that or is it actually illegal to park in your own driveway.
