Probably the same everywhere: some are honest people who show genuine interest in protecting the law, others abuse their power to compensate for whatever.

Typically, I respect them.

Pretty neutral. I "believe" in their existence. Like the ones that do their job well, dislike the ones that don't

I think people that hate the police are stereotyping just as much as people who hate black people for being thugs and thieves.

Yea, they've helped me out before. If you don't do illegal shit and don't act like an ass-hole you won't have any problems.

New Zealand Police I'm fine with, it's just when you get other countries that start to use aggressive force on non-aggressors.

Even though i'm infrequently doing anything wrong, i find myself a little paranoid in their presence. Still, i'm mostly indifferent to them, some of them are great some are dicks.

I think that's his username. He said that he was looking forward to all the Police Officers getting beaten and tortured or some shit in the OWS thread.

There are good cops and bad cops. I've been lucky enough to only get in trouble with good cops. A few years ago, I got pulled over with weed in my car. The cop noticed a beer my ****ing brother left in the backseat, so he had probable cause to search because I was underage. I told him about the weed in my center console, so he just took it and did a quick search through my dirty car without finding anything else. He took me back to his truck (this was in a little farm town) where he was going to just write me a ticket and let me go. But I was only 17 at the time, and he couldn't find his juvenile tickets, so he just took my weed and let me go. The best part is that he forgot to search my trunk, so I got to keep my beer. Needless to say, I got pretty damn lucky.

I'd have to say I respect them. Sure, I've dealt with some real power trippers in the past, but most of them have been pretty cool guys just doing their jobs. I've never really had issues with them.
#26
Same as anyone else. If they're respectful and courteous, then I'll be the same to them. If they act like an asshole, I act like an asshole back. Police around here tend to believe that we as civilians are required by law to be respectful to law enforcement, but the reality is that all we have to be is cooperative.

Probably only encountered two nice police in my life - both were in relation to receiving noise complaints and when they came around and found nothing we had a chat.

However, yesterday I got fined $300 and lost my driving license for holding my phone while driving (it's against the law to talk/text on your phone while driving). The two officers didn't believe me and even when they demanded to check my call history (which obviously showed I wasn't using it) and saw I was right they still fined me anyway and now I can't leave my house for 3 months.

Also witnessed police beat/use unnecessary force on people already handcuffed and not resisting. I agree that it's unfair to stereotype them all, but the job seems to attract a special type of self-important dickhead moreso than other occupations.

I find them tolerable, but I'm not a fan.

without the previous quote, i.e. out of context, this sounds like you hate the police and I barely find them acceptable lol

My dad used to be a cop, and I always act respectful to them even if they aren't to me, but only because if I'm not I know they could be a lot harder on me for whatever I'm doing. But basically I think some are good, some are bad. They're human after all just like anyone else.

I like them when they are not arrogant pricks, but let's face it, that's not really unique to the police, it's a part of life. I respect the profession as a whole.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Cops is easily one of the best shows on television, when they actually put down real criminals. Hi-speed car chases are my favorite. I've actually watched quite a number of episodes of Cops.

i always seem to turn on cops when they're responding to a call some old **** made about people smoking pot in their car, in their own driveway.

and then the ****face cop has the nerve to claim that he "might have prevented something bad from happening" by arresting them

I respect the people who do their job well, and I don't respect those who don't... it's pretty simple.

I don't like them I lived in Los Angeles for 13 years and they didn't do much to help the drugs and violence. I saw them arresting more homeless men/women than drug dealers and killers. Now i live in a small town in Oklahoma and all I see them do is sit around the high school parking lot waiting for someone to run the stop sign. I have not seen them help ever, so **** them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLX6xNbhios

The police here in Brazil are horrible. Way too much police brutality and extrajudicial executions happen all the time. The corruption is ridiculous, they're almost never held accountable for their crimes and a bunch of people here seem to feel less safe around cops then around "criminals".

TS, I am tired of seeing your threads. Please find a hobby.
I shall now ameliorate my own hypocrisy by tacitly encouraging your threadmaking.
My opinion of cops is

Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.
