I don't know but I think he wants to even out with all the posts about one guy or another getting in to trouble with the cops. Evenbody seems to feel sorry for the guy but sometimes he gets the best end of the deal and the cops don't. It's a good idea I just don't want him to thinkhe needs to tow the line for cops/law enforcement on this site cuz there are only a few antis.

I may be wrong, but my take is that Rapid-fire is taking the thread about the guy in NY state who just had a "run-in" as an attack against ALL cops, which it obviously isn't. The cops referred to in that thread acted like power-hungry punks, and those particular cops deserve all the bashing they get. Myself, I have never been treated badly by any LEO, and have great respect for any Cop who treats me, or others, with respect. Those who indeed ARE professionals command respect by virtue of the fact that they are professional in the manner in which they conduct themselves. Those who conduct themselves as the ones in the NY thread did, though, deserve noones respect. A fact evidenced by the disgust expressed by the Cops on this board, most of whom I gather are on the "Professional" side of law enforcement.

It's rather juvenile to attack those we first call when we need help, get hurt, lose a loved one.

Well, you just go ahead and show us all that you are a better LEO than those in that other post. Just go ahead and keep right on posting all these irrelevant stories. Yes, that's what I said. They [b]are not relevant[/b] to the thread posted the other night. They [i]may[/i] be relevant to a different subject, and I'm sure you'd find very few here that would disagree with the fact that LEO's have a hard, dangerous job. The difficulty some have here isn't with understanding that the job is dangerous, and can get you killed, it's with the attitude that [b]some[/b] LEO's have that they have some sort of special blessing from God almighty that gives them more 'rights' and privledges than the rest of us peons. When I start seeing Sheriff and State Patrol officers doing something as simple as obeying the speed limit, I will start relaxing around them. This has been discussed before, and even in the context of current events, does it surprise you that people don't like it when someone come up to them and with the smallest of suspicion yells in thier face to shut the F*CK up! That really is music that calms the savage beast, isn't it? If you hit the animal enough, or tease it sufficiently often, it will eventually bite back! Does this surprise you? It shouldn't. There [b]are[/b] ways to do the job, and stay safe wtihout the amount of 'terror' that [i]some[/i] LEOs feel is necessary. Your own reaction to this is simply making the point for those that are against LEOs! I'm not saying it's easy being a LEO. Heaven only knows what risks you guys put yourselves into every day - and then hope to get home after your shift. But I am saying that many people have shitty jobs, stressful jobs, hell, even risky jobs - but they still manage to be civil [b]while on the job[/b] The other post documented a truly shameful [b]group[/b] of officers. it did not paint every officer in the country with the same brush - as I read it, it only painted those officers with it. From your reaction, you'd think you were one of them in that department, and had jsut found out the guy filed a complaint against you! Take a chill pill, and let it go. I'd be happy to buy you a beer if you were in my neighborhood, but from the relentlessness of your 'attack' on this forum (can you say harassment?), I'm not so sure I'd want to stay in the same bar. There are plenty of other LEO's - some of which are on this board that I'd have that beer with. Now that I've probably sufficiently pissed you off even further, even though that's not where I intended this reply to go, I guess my work is done here, and I'll leave.
