I don't get why so many people hate on the police. Calling them names, insulting, threatening to cause them harm. EVEN if there are a FEW police that are bullies and jerks, why not just give them the benefit of the doubt that they are kind and decent people? Who does it hurt to treat everyone with kindness and respect until they show you that they don't deserve it? I personally like police, they protect me from people WHO ARE TRYING TO KILL ME. If we didn't have police, there would be mass chaos not much different from that in The Dark Knight. Now, if an Officer does something to me that is inappropriate, that SPECIFIC officer has lost my respect. The fact of the matter is the men and women who serve in America are there to AID the community. It is NOT NOT NOT their fault if the elected officials, who are their bosses, tell them to go arrest people who are smoking/driving fast etc. I just don't get the hate, you'll be sorry when the day comes if your house has been broken into and you reach to call the police, oh wait you gave the middle finger to the dude and yelled pig at him. Now he really wants to help you. I am in no way affiliated or related to any member of law enforcement or government offical, at least as far as I know. I am just saying this because I see so many people on this site and in the world around me that just show a lack of human decency when it comes to someone who risks his or her life for you on a daily basis.
