So, I just walked out to sit on a bench and saw "F*CK THE POLICE" carved into it. I crossed it out with my pocket sharpie and wrote "THANK THE POLICE." Honestly, what's the deal with this animosity towards police officers? I've never been steered wrong by the police and I've never had a reason to doubt their integrity. If you believe your police force is corrupt, then write your congressman. If you believe that the laws they enforce are wrong, write a senator. They don't make the law, they enforce it.

In Detroit, police officers will rarely arrest a kid who has a spliff of pot on him. If you're carrying an ounce, then yes, they will bust you. They're only looking for dealers or heroin junkies, not the dumb kid who is carrying around his stash on him. I've never met a police officer I didn't like, so I don't understand why everyone in my generation hates them.

Anyone ever encounter anything like this? What are your thoughts on it?
Sincerely, Chad.

I don't really see why people hate the police anyway, but then again I'm not black.

cops are the meatheaded jocks from high school. they realized that they have no future, and are the bottom of the garbage heap of society. so they picked a job where they could bully people around legaly. and they enjoy it, because it makes them feel important like they were in high school.

Tool.

If the group mindset leans towards labeling all police officers as corrupt liars, then wouldn't that make you the tool?

Proof? The astronomy genius of our high school graduated Cum Laude from Michigan University and then decided to become a police officer. I believe you are sorely mistaken.

I know, I never understood this either.

Around here they're pretty tough on weed though. I try to be really nice to them and never carry my stash unless I have to and they don't give me any problems.

It's not nice to stereotype people.

There's no way all cops are like this.

Besides, there's no reason a sane human being should be mad at the cops for any reason. If not for them, you'd be up to your eyes in people trying to rob you. Someone would be in your living room raping your mom and sister right now, and taking pictures of it.

Cops keep the peace.

I always get the feeling that those wannabe punk rockers hate the police because it's fashionable. Growing up and behaving like an educated adult is probably a little difficult for some of us.

The thing nowadays is to be "TEH R3B3L10UZ!!!!1111!!!!!@" which basically means rejecting anything government-related without analyzing it first. Like you, I've never had a bad experience with the cops, so I'm not complaining. I understand there might be a few rotten ones, but come on. That doesn't mean the whole institution is corrupt.

That's odd considering that The 4th and 5th highest achievers in my year are going on to become cops.

Funniest incident I can recall was when I was bombing around town with a few friends. We pulled up to a redlight and when we stopped driver opens the door and spraypaints FTP on the road. I thought it was funny at them time, but incredibly stupid as well.

Except there are plenty of cases indicating that it is. Hence all the paperwork they now have to complete here in the UK.

Yeah, that's what cops are doing, committing genocide against people while they're high on amphetamines.

Please, if cops were taken out of your life for one day, you'd be begging for them back within the first hour.

"Policeman" is sexist.

Don't get me wrong, im not saying cops are nazi's im just saying that on many occasions people use the, "im just doing what im told" excuse when they don't want to admit that they're in a job that discourages use of better judgement. (that or they're to cowardly to do what they should and so hide behind that argument)

I'm quite aware that there are police out there who actually want to do their job well and help people when ever they can, unfortunatly however im yet to meet that police officer, through a few experiences of my own, none of which im willing to go into that deeply (but in none of them have i done anything wrong) I've found the police force to be lazy, understaffed and unorganised which sadly seems to be the opposite for most criminals .... shame really.

Did a police officer wrong you? Draw attention to it. Newspapers love these stories and publish them at every chance they get. Grow up and learn how the system works. It's not going to change or go away, so work with it.

So, they told you "Oh, we stop everyone who has long hair?" I'm sorry, but you have no idea why they search people. I've been searched twice in my life, and going home to look in the mirror, I understand why. I look like a crack dealer, and I'm glad they searched me. It means they searched a crack dealer at some point and threw him in the backseat.

There's good cops and bad cops, just like with any other kind of profession or group of people. People tend not to like any type of authority (or at least, while they're teenagers). It's human nature.
