I have a great idea! Lets base our opinions of police across the world on the actions of these few cops in England, and then mention a few other incidents of bad cops, and conclude that all cops are bad!
After all, stereotyping is good right? Its not like any famous problems or genocides or slavery occurred in our history because of people stereotyping others...
Feel better now that you forum members got to jump on the bandwagon that all LEOs are slime?
Feel better now that you forum members got to jump on the bandwagon that all LEOs are slime? Deserteagle says it right, even though Beau cannot get over the inconsequential nature of geography (FYI Beau-his comments may have said England but the substance of his remarks still stand). Lets say there are a few hundred thousand LEOs in this country--what % of them have committed the kind of crime this thread talks about? They are directly faced everyday with a growing % of the public who are not the nicest or most responsible people in this country. How many LEO confrontations do you think there were the day this terrible event occurred? Apparently many of you "have real problems" with LEOs good or bad. Put the bad in jail if they break the law; your negative generalizations of LEOs based on a few bad ones, is pathetic and disgraceful.
My negative opinion of LEO's does not stem from the few bad apples in the group, but the fact that there is no accountability and that the other so-called "good" LEO's don't do anything about the problem. I will change my opinion when I read some stories about a bad LEO beating up some retard only to have the living **** kicked out of him by his fellow officers. Not going to happen. So guess what, when you drop a turd in a barrel of water, the whole barrel is undrinkable. And as long as the so-called "good" LEOs continue to put up with the bad ones, they are no better than the water in that barrel.
What an intelligent argument you make... I have to say you do a pretty good job at reinforcing the use of stereotypes. After all, when a small percent of people act stupid, why not say they all act stupid? Heck, if people like the Nazis saw problems with some of the Jews, they must have been justified in assuming all Jews are bad huh?
I never knew stereotyping was such a wonderful thing until you pointed out with a great, irrelevant example, that poop in a barrel of water contaminates the water.
Lets just blame the majority for the mistakes of the few and see how far that gets us in life...

Maybe you did not "mean" that and if you do have a sense of respect for what an LEO has to put up with, I am sorry, but my first thought when I read the title is "here we go again--all LEOs are no good". Punch's comment certainly lends credence to my appreciation of the tone of this thread's replies. Nothing good, Blue Wall, all sleazy.
Ehhh LEO choose the profession their in. They go through the same crappy stuff paramedics and firefighters do. They deal with the same jerks cashier's and bank tellers deal with. Yet...it's LEO that get away with bull**** attitudes and abuse. I like boomboys numbers, 1 in 3 are bad cops...the majority of the rest let them get away with it...
I'll start respecting police when they stop acting like pricks.
Deserteagle:216211 said:Here we go again with your disrespect and lack of legitimate arguments.
Police academy is nothing like little firefighter academy, they do not deal with the same people, and LEOs do not get away with everything. Cops learn how to stop people who break laws, firefighters learn how to spray a large garden hose.
All of you people need to stop acting like children and actually go on a ride along and you'll be surprised at how wrong you are about them. Its one thing to sit at your computer and bash the police because you've heard stories from other people or that you saw on the internet, but its a lot different to actually go see police working first hand, and then make legitimate arguments about them and form opinions of them.
