No envy for the job of a Cop

I don't envy the tough job our cops have. I know that there are cops out there that take advantage of authority and public trust; but the majority of them are good people doing a thankless job.

Came across this story this morning while catching up:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/01/10...m-charged.html

One thing I can pretty much say for sure is that if I were a cop responding to a situation like this - that thing would have never made it to the station. That mugshot would have never been taken. I would have ended her on the spot.

Couldn't agree more. They see stuff like this, put up with total disrespect on the street, and then it seems near as much BS from the higher-ups. All-in-all, I believe most are decent folks working hard to do a tough job.

FishinFather wants to know Dino or Syn?
Wow. Gotta be more to that story. Dad called the cops when he found him? Where was dad the last year or two? I know where my kids are all the time to some extent, even the oldest that's out on his own stays in regular contact...

I read that article. Have the FOX news app on my phone. Disgusting but if you watch/read news, this stuff happens every day.

About a week and a half ago the wife and I were at a Mexican restaurant after church. A short time after being seated a couple local policemen came in. I was compelled to go to their table and thank them for what they do. I was thanked in return with a handshake from both of them.

I used to thank just military personnel but with the way LEO have been hunted these last months, I am trying to extend my gratitude when opportunity presents itself. IMO all first responders deserve at least that.

That is an excellent idea. I've done that as well but due to the past couple of years of hostile attitudes toward LEO's, I plan to do it every chance I get.

Police and the military have been my heroes for many years- they're the two groups that have chosen to stand between me and malice.

It's refreshing to see people on a public forum NOT bashing the police for a change.

She is not a human being. Needs to be dealt with as such.
