Some people say the police have never helped them, but that's because they are so dirty that instead of calling the cops when people are shooting at each other you just jump in.
Many people think that all cops are racist, and only arrest blacks. Sorry, but they arrest who is commiting crimes, and if blacks are commiting crimes, they don't care that they are black and arrest them.
Because of them, you live day by day. Who else would be protecting you from people running down the streets with M16s?
5 minutes later she is getting mugged and calls the police. They come nd arrest the guy mugging her.
Rich girl: Oh my god I love the police!
Jamal: Yo I hate dese cops they don't help anyone, they just interrupt my gang fights.
*Starts shooting at random people*
Police come and shoot him.
Jamal: THEY ARE SO RACIST THEY SHOT ME CUZ I'M BLACK!
Many people hate cops because of the 'pig' stereotype. There certainly are many who fit this; pushy, angry, forceful, et cetera. While it is important to be able to keep track of someone, it's not right to resort to extreme measures for bizarre reasons of 'safety' when there is no direct threat present. Also, as described before, many people hate cops because they frequently waste peoples' time with bureaucratic nonsense instead of truly protecting the people from dangerous criminals. However, this is more related to bad laws and flaws in a greedy and shortsighted system than the officers themselves.
Ex. 1: The police had a typical day; they gave five hundred tickets to irritated motorists, and arrested some kids for underage drinking at a party. (common)
Ex. 2: Wow, that police officer really saved our life! It really seemed as though that guy was going to kill us! (rare)
They are constantly harassed by the lowest form of life on this planet, yet go out there day after day protecting your sorry asses from people who are sick and tired of your shit, and who if it wasn't for the Police, would be in the process of killing you, if they hadn't already.
