On one hand they're an absolutely necessary asset to society, definitely the thin blue line between order and disorder.

On the other hand they're human just like the rest of us and are just as susceptible to corruption and wrong doing as any common person, the difference being that they have power.


Personally I've only had good experiences with the police, I've always found that if you're polite with them, they're polite back and merciful, but then again I live in the country.

It's city cops I always hear terrible stories of.

So pit... experiences ? opinions ? Discuss.

Fuck the police!


Bedit: Ok, real answer. I think they do a good job around here in Lexington, but lately they've been pulling people over for some of the dumbest stuff. My dad got a speeding ticket for going 5 over the other day. Think it has something to do with recession.

Personally in my experience, they're nice people. They should be respected because when it's you who needs them, they're still there, no matter what you've done in the past.
#7
Well, the ones that shoot people or beat the crap out of people for no reason are assholes. The ones that pull me over, but don't give me a ticket are the best.

Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

No, but in all honesty, all the cops I've ever met have been pretty good people. I think they're necessary to keep people safe, and without them there would be ALOT more murders and the like.

I don't like Sting but I like Andy and Stewart.

Seriously, Some are good. We need them, but some are idiots. You have to wonder what kind of people want to be police anyway, they are either power hungry and insecure or caring and helpful, not many normal people.

I respect them. The way I see it, I shouldn't have to be afraid of them if I'm not doing anything wrong.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

ROOOOOOOOOOOOOXANNNNE!

I haven't really had much trouble with the police other than a few of my friends getting speeding fines even though they tell me they werent speeding, but when you're a P plater, It's just not worth doing anything about it.

I think some of them are awesome, some of them aren't.

They serve a purpose but in my experience they can really be useless sometimes

I respect them and I realize that they are needed, but I don't trust them. Some are good and some are bad, but you should know your rights and never tell them more than you need to.

I have no problem with the police except for this one asshole in Sylvester who pulled this guy I know over for "hearing him go to fast" and this other guy I know for going 41 in a 40. Other than speeding, yeah, they're alright. But then again, there are people like Rodger Coffee who's about 75 and wouldn't pull anyone over even if he saw them roll a joint. Someone kicked his ass the other day actually. He had me dead to rights going about 90 sum through town and he didn't even flash his lights at me. Then again, I also live in the country (like someone else above said).

My uncle is a cop. I've had a few bad times with cops but I deserved them. Other then that, I don't mind them.

I had to drop my uncle off at the station today. Gotta say, cops get some BA equipment. He's got this thing that's like a night stick and a lightsaber combined. It's awesome.

there are a lot of redneck asshole cops here, seriously, about 3/4 of the cops I've dealt with personally have been major dicks, the other 1/4 however where surprisingly nice.

Well, considering every encounter I have with them involves myself and my friends running as fast as we can away from them, I think you know the answer....


They're fun to run from!!

I'm kinda annoyed with the media coverage of every cops funeral in my city. It's a risky job and they knew the risks when they signed on. It's a damn shame, give a phone number for donations to the family. That's it. We don't need play by play coverage of the poor bastards funeral. A cop died a week or two ago and every news paper headline was about how they were tragically perfecting the funeral service... I swear, every headline had something like that. "An all too familiar ritual" or something like that. Basically saying, "we're getting good at putting cops in the ground" and I find that disrespectful. Playing it up as if it's Anna Nicole Smith's f*cking funeral all over again. Just catch the guy who did it and move on. I don't need to be reminded EVERY day that someone died. Lots of people die. It's a f*cked up world... at least this guy could have saw it coming and chalked it up to occupational hazard.

/rant

Other then that... I don't mind cops very often, but alot of them let the power go to their head and they act like dicks for no reason.

urban cops deserve respect for everything they do

if you live in a rich suburban area, the cops are just trying to meet their quota and will pull you over for stupid **** like "speeding in unsafe conditions". my friend got pulled over and given a ticket for going 20 mph in a 35 speed limit because there was a little fog. he was going way below the speed limit and they got him for speeding

I live in an urban area, and about half the cops here are major dicks who don't deserve shit, a lot of them don't even seem to do their jobs.

And not tha other color so police think they have the authority to kill a minority!

I don't have run ins with the police. I'm a law-abiding citizen.

Therefore I don't really have problems with them. However police brutality and abuse of power is a real problem even today. Some cops really cross the line with their investigations and how they carry themselves.

So overall I have a fairly middle of the road opinion of them (lean slightly towards liking them)
