What is you're mentality towards police? I personally hate most of um'. Humans are creatures of fallacy and because of such, we do indeed need some form of an authority figure (IE the police, deity, parents ETC.) to keep us under control, but the fallacy is applied to every human, no matter you're position in society. Most people get egos when placed in a powerful position and a lot of the time, that person in the powerful position can get more reckless then the people he controls.

There you go.


They can get annoying with their damned speeding tickets but either than that they are capable of their job.

I don't much care about them, but the only time I see them anywhere near where I live is on sunny days when they want to fart about with a speed trap.
Lazy f*ckers.

They serve a purpose, I don't mind. Some of them are arrogant pricks that like to throw their weight around for the fun of it though, but you get people like that anyway.

Seeing random acts of police brutality, against people who were doing nothing to physically harm the cop. ****, its like we have ****ing thugs for the police. Personally, I always get on to for my physical apperance and questing their conservative, close minded logic.
Plus, I don't hate all the cops. Just the prime majority. This might be cos' I'm in Alabama, but ****, I dunno'.

They don't bother me. My mum worked for them for a while, and they were nice dudes. But there are some who are absolute idiots and I can't stand them.

Airport security is the biggest joke ever. I had a bottle of mouthwash and some razor blades in my bag that I forgot about, and they never even found them.

I try to avoid bad encounters with them. But yes, as they say, power corrupts. Some of them let it get to their head, others realize that it's a job and their responsibility is to help the people, not to beat them down and keep them in line. And it really depends on the area you live in.

I'm sure that was just an excuse. The real reason was probably St Anger.

They got me in trouble because I bought my little cousin a tiny squirt gun.

They confiscated it and now they check me every time I go through.

I think the only reason that most of the people on here "hate" the police is because the media only focuses on the bad, not the good. Dumbasses.

Some police might be a little power crazy, but without them our society would be ****. And most police officers are nice, trust me I've met a bunch.

Yeah, and without criminals society would be great. What's your point?

There's always going to be an authority figure, so there is no "without them" scenario.

edit:
And no, I'm not a rebel. I do sincerely believe that police officers are much better than I am or any of you at making judgment calls in certain situations, but some of them can be a little thick.
#29
Haha, I just happen to be listening to KRS One's Sound of Da Police right now.

WOOP WOOP!
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

I don't have a problem with them in principle. There are good cops and bad cops. I have more problems with the law's that they enforce, but it's their job to do it.

So because you saw someone do a random act of brutality you hatethe mojority of cops? As if one will speak for the actions of every single cop out there. This is like the whole "Mexicans are outraged" thread. Just because one person does something doesnt mean everyone else is like that.

Most cops are lazy and corrupt. They're bullies. They harass innocent people just because they can. At least that's been my experience. I've never had any personal conflict with them, but I've seen them be total dicks. They once came and shut down a local concert for no reason. And they go out of their way to try and catch kids on some ridiculous charge. Minorities, poor people, and kids get abused by the cops more than anyone.

So you are supporting "Guilty by assciation"? You are judging the whole by the one? That is exactly what the media does. Great.

They've done nothing to me that wasn't fair. I've never met a bad cop actually...

Hate the Polish police, I've always hated them and I always will.

****ers bust down your door at 5 in the morning, put a gun to your head and search your house for weed. And if they find it.. BAM! 1-5 years in prison, depending on the amount.

Plus, they are assholes.

EDIT: This actually happened to our bassist, idiots had to pay for the door. They found nada, we smoked everything a few days beforehand.

EDIT2: Believe me, the MO 20 years ago wasnt better. I hated them a little less, though.
Those guys were at least intelligent, and you could tak to them without gettint hit in the head with a ****ing baton.

I think Draken's post pretty much sums it up, except that I've never had an "adolescent rebellion"-thing.
