  • I use to listen to Paul Harvey on the radio. I was such a nice, genuine, humble man. I was actually a bit sad when he passed away.

    In regards to cops, I know many of them. I am not a cop, but I work around them from time to time in my job. My father was a cop and my grandfather wa a cop, and my oldest brother is a cop.

    The truth is, everyone expects cops to do their jobs no matter what, but people just don't want to see it or know about it.

    95% of those "police brutality" vid More..

  • I hold no grudge or disrespect for officers individually, but there are two things I do not like. There is a culture of us verses them in most enforcement organizations, and although this is a natural process, I think the 'them' tends to encompass anyone not part of the force, treating the law abiding the same as criminals. The other thing is the growing militarization of the forces, especially after 9/11, which compounds the 'them' attitude, seen mostly by the hyper-aggressive home entries.

    • @joe prole

      You have to understand that the majority of people the cops have to deal with are CRIMINALS.

      My experience has been that cops become quite distrusting of their fellow men and women. However, most cops are able to differentiate between the crooks and normal, mostly law abiding people.

      There are a few exceptions I guess, but I think you are throwing ALL cops in the same bucket.

    • @ArrestU I believemuch like paramedics appear to be callous when they laugh at "stupid" injuries (because of what is dealt with on a daily basis....Cops will do the same. This offends people.

  • This is in response to a popular post "Thug arrested for DUI goes crazy on officers!

    *His full name is 'Fuck You'. His occupation? Take a wild guess."

  • Great post. It's easy to forget how important these officers are to use as a society and the hardships they face on a day to day basis just to do their jobs. Respect :)

    • @Canadian from the US i see your logic, but the reason that i don't blow through red lights is that there are police out there. the reason i pull out my wallet at the grocery store instead of a gun is because the police are out there. the reason i don't kill my daughters boyfriends that i disapprove of is that there are police out there. the reason i go to work to make money instead of robbing a bank is because there are police out there.

      most of that shit i wouldn't do anyway, of course, with More..

  • Comment of user '85cmorning' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • I FEEL LIKE SOMETIMES IM THE ONLY PERSON STANDING UP FOR OUR LAW ENFORCMENT PERSONNEL. im ashamed of the community on here that reacts towards police officers, but then again we have creationists, truthers and conspiracy theorists and above all, liberals as well....

    • @Noalias You have not noticed the change in policeman attitude since 911? Even in my small town, they act like they have forgotten that we are all just people doing jobs. "Where are you coming from?" I resent that question in this free country. I don't blame the individuals, it's a bad attitude from top down.

  • I'm old enough to remember Mr. Harvey on the radio. I used to listen to his spots when-ever I could. He was unique in his delivery of all kinds of information. I am not a fan of very many media types but I was definitely a fan of Paul Harvey!

  • Between 2001 and 2008 they put on many more cops in every city and state. They used 911 to justify it and the economy was good so nobody complained. Now they have over 100 cops in my small town and it strains their budget so they line up at every other overpass on the freeway trying to give speeding tickets. I have a 30 mile commute and usually see 4 to 6 cops between home and work. Kindof a joke if you ask me.
    ps I grew up on Paul Harvey and enjoyed hearing his voice again after years. Good day More..

  • I just listened to it again, and I'm sorry but I do not think paul harvey, if he was alive today, would say the same about current police performance. Things have changed, and not for the better.

  • If cops do their job right most people praise them. Cops need to go back to de escalation of situations instead of escalation. They escalate fights and then if they get beat they were a victim doing their job right? Good cops need to start locking up bad cops who demonstrate crappy judgement. If you are good cop and you know a bad cop, but do nothing..then your a bad cop too. This is why people have a problem with cops. Stop lurking in the dark at 6 am preying on people driving to work and go More..

  • Keep in mind. Prejudice is neither wrong nor right. Defined it is to pre-judge or in other words, make a fast judgment. It's like being ridged. The whole nature of the job requires police to constantly be making split second judgment calls. Some directly relating to his/her own safety, others indirectly. Not to mention the safety of every one else.
    If you see the world as cops vs every one else it's your own warped perspective. It's not reality.
    Cops who live that way last not long at all on t More..

  • All cops do around here is try to bust people for speeding and having flowers. This may have applied 30 years ago but now a cops job is to find, arrest, and help prossecute you, not to protect and serve. Police are delivery men for prisons.

    • @mattplasse88 Again it is the political correct state that makes cops have quotas. Just like any other job...it has becomemore about the quanity ofthe tickets they are forced to write vs the quality of the fine and who it is handed to. You tell a cop he has to dole out 100 tickets this week...every week and everyone hesees is a target. Instead of just saying fight crime we are telling them to find crime.
