Every time I read comments like Cutter's I'm glad I turned down my chance to be a CHP. I know any position policing the street is far from easy. In todays society the police are automatically guilty until proven innocent. Even after being proven innocent by actual evidence in a court of law... millions will continue to believe the sound-bite that was a full on lie and will still call for the cops head on a spike for months if not years after proven innocent. Those same people screaming racism refused to see how hypocritical they are. I'm sick of the race card being the first or second card played every damn time somebody doesn't get their way. Can't win an argument play the card.

Oh so you feel cops should be entitled to murder unarmed people whenever they want? You think there aren't issues with race and policing? Some of the responses here are so typical extremist right-wing, knee jerk bullshit. Most cops spend most of their time in anything but danger or anywhere close to it. Unless you think writing tickets and watching road crews work is dangerous. The only self-entitlement going on here is on their side, 'Oh it's such a hard job, people don't understand.' Again. QUIT! No one asked you to do it. You aren't owed anything.

And why do people need to call the cops to begin with? They're not allowed to defend themselves. They're forced into a position of being reliant on the state so you can't blame for that. And if and when they show up it's already after the fact by then. Ever had anything stolen before? Good luck in ever getting back. Maybe they should be looking for stolen shit and skipping the tickets. Society doesn't need glorified ticket writers making 100k a year - no wonder they have to write so many.

People are just tired of cops not being accountable. That there are two sets of rules one for them and one for us. I've worked events for cops before where the fucking Captain has given me his card saying if I get stopped at a DUI checkpoint just show that to them and they'll wave you right through. I see cops constantly breaking the law in small ways they make other people pay for. Obviously that's the sort of shit that grates on people. I worked the G20 and it was very clear there that "serve and protect" only applies to the rich and big business as the illegal mass-arrests at those events always prove.

Once they start actually abiding by the laws themselves, stop needlessly bullying people, stop needlessly murdering people, then they won't face any of those issues. They bring this on themselves.

Contrary to how it sounds, I don't hate cops but there are far too many bad ones out there and that needs to change, but again, the cops themselves won't allow that, again which is probably the largest part of the problem. The thin blue line is protecting the wrong people. And if you're not for the people, why should they be for you?
