The people that you disrespect for doing their job, yet when you are getting robbed, you call them anyway. The most underpaid, disrespected people in the world. People that get killed to save your life, yet when they are arresting you for going 50 mph down a 20 mph road, you spit on them and say you weren't speeding; even though by pulling you over they just saved about 5 lives.
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?
Rich girl: Like oh my god I got pulled over for going 40 over the speed limit. I hate police they have nothing to do!
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!
The biggest gang in the world.
The police stole all my weed and smoked it.
A honorable calling which is thankless and low paying. Also, a job dealing with the ignorant, the drunk and the stupid. Usually spending long nights away from family dealing with donut jokes from people who have no clue, getting spit on and disrespected while wasting time on charges that will be dismissed anyway by a chickenshit DA in a pinstripe suit the following month. Originally From the latin, "beatemus et releasus" (beat and release).
I don't know why I'm the police, I should have been a firefigher.
1. A very misunderstood group of people: They protect you, they keep murderers, rapists, and other such motherfuckers off the streets.
2. Assholes about loud music.
2. "Dude, someone called the cops on my gig last night!"
A person whose job it is to enforce the laws passed down by the government. As in any job, there are good and bad police officers. Often sworn at for issuing speeding tickets by the ignorant who fail to realize that more people die in automobile accidents each year than in weapon violence; usually speed is a factor. Usually thankless job, until someone finds themselves needing the police, at which point attitudes often change.
The police issued a ticket to the businessman for doing 100 in a 40 zone.
A usually normal person sometimes given too much power. While police are definitely a necessity in any civilized society (in at least one form or another), in our 'nanny state' nation cops are known for giving people tickets for going too fast, commonly when there's no one in danger, busting up teenage parties, and arresting people for smoking marijuana who are not infringing on the rights of others. They have also been used as an excuse for gun control, except that in reality you need to be able to defend yourself and not rely on someone else.
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)
People who for the most part work their asses off 12 hours a day for people who will never understand half of the thing they have to do, half of the things they have to know, why they do what they do, or why it needs to be done.
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.
If you get pulled over by the police, you were probably DWHUA.
