What do you think of cops?
    #4509531 - 08/08/05 04:53 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

In general, what is your disposition towards police officers?

The key words are "in general" here. Your decision should not be based on whether you think they are necessary or not (although you are free to add your commentary), just your attitude towards them.
Police officers:
You may choose only one
Love 'em.
Hate 'em.
Impartial.

I feel some level of law enforcement is necessary, but some of the intrusive and oppressive laws we have make police work more of a predatory job than one of service to the public. Because of this, it tends to attract assholes on a power trip, rather than the kind of people who would be more inclined to protect us from danger.

In summary, fuck the police!

it depends which ones. some of them are cops because they wanted to do things like make their area a safer place, apprehending real criminals, and only bust people for drugs because they have to, otherwise they would get in trouble. these are good cops.

then you have the cops who are just assholes who are just looking for people to bust for smoking pot.

i guess i'll vote impartial. depends on the cop really. i've met some nice ones

It's funny how wrong the US has it concerning police compared to some other countries. When I was in Costa Rica the police did exactly what they were supposed to do. They stayed the fuck out of everyone's business unless people were screwing with other people.

Ya, there's definitely some good ones out there. One cop who pulled me over let me go even though he could tell I was high, because in his judgement, I wasn't a danger to anyone.

I'm not a fan of cops. Even though not one person can deny that when they are in danger they hate them. Its a love-hate deal.

I really think that they are beneficial when they do things that are worth while.

Example: persuing and preventing violent crimes. Putting someone in jail for a victimless crime is flat out bullshit. They should have better things to do with their time than lock up a teenager for having some pot.

I agree about them helping with crime, but the WOD is rediculous, and as stated the police force does attract alot of power hungry people.

I also say fuck em.

Where is the "Rape the hot women cops, disembowel the males" option? I was going to choose that, but since it's not there I choose "Hate them".

I'm impartial, some are dicks and some are not. It's mostly the laws that suck, but we can change those.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I dont have a problem with cops at all, but i dont love them... i voted impartial.

I've gotten pulled over only a few times in my life for speeding... even though i speed outrageously daily... and not once have i gotten a ticket. It's always a warning.

I was actually in Costa Rica surfing some big 20 ft swells last summer in a small surfing town. However, the time I was in that town was when there were also some bigtime Costa Rican drug smugglers doing business... Me and the other people i was on the trip with were all told to stay inside our hotel rooms during one night where the Police did a big drug bust... all kinds of gunfire that night. It was crazy. Eventually the drug dealers got arrested and a few people were left dead.

Police are just doin there jobs... like 'em or not. Even though, after watching 3 seasons of Reno 911 straight... im beggining to LOVE cops! lmao.

Where do you live, what car do you drive, and are you an 18-24 year old male without kids? I always get tickets when I'm pulled over.
