This is just the impression that I get. From all the cops I have ever had to deal with, the ones I have talked to have little to no people skills. They interrupt you when you are trying to tell them something, or ignore you, or start right off the bat by accusing you. They tend to assume the worst as soon as they look at you. They just come off as rude inconsiderate pricks who simply don't care to be professional/personable.
Being professional/personal would go a long way towards changing my attitude towards them. And the sad thing is, I got this from pretty minimal dealings with them. I am not some criminal, unless you consider "Rolled through stop sign" or "Failed to signal turn" to be a crime. Minor traffic violations is the only thing that I have ever had to even talk to the cops about, with the exception of them asking me if I had heard anything when a crime had been committed near my house. So its my humble opinion, that they just need a longer training period on how to deal with people.
And not "How to deal with violent people". I know they get all the training they need for that. They just need to learn how to deal with regular average joes that didn't just rob a convenience store or steal a car. And If you paid them 50K a year or some reasonable salary, you would attract a new caliber of individual to the job. Again, just my thoughts on the matter.
i think thedark1337 is a pretty cool guy. eh plays the game and doesnt afraid of anything
- later on when i was about 16 i suddenly came to the realization that i had zero appeal to women and i said "i'm going to say i'm gay from now on"
