Misunderstood by the public, people who enforce the laws.

4 main types of people that hate the police;

1: The 12 year old keyboard warrior. These people have never had bad interactions with the police before, but they're constantly reading on the Internet about how everyone hates the police and determines that hating the police is the trendy thing to do and decides to hop on the bandwagon.

2: The uppity college undergrad. They sit in Starbucks and blog about how oppressed they felt and how their rights were violated that one time they did a protest that blocked off a main street and a police officer told them to move. This is the same kind of person that will run around with a camera, antagonizing police to get a reaction out of them and then can be heard screaming "I DO NOT CONSENT. YOU'RE VIOLATING MY RIGHTS. I AM AN AMERICAN CITIZEN" over and over again when the officer asks to see their ID and the post the video on Youtube.

3: The felon. Usually brought on by their own stupidity, their arrest still lingers in their mind and they are bitter against the police officers who busted them for dealing pills.

4: The person who actually has a right to complain about the police. This kind of person has usually been unfairly treated by the police, usually beaten during a protest or was illegally searched and or detained by police. Accounts for 2% of people who hate the police.
Type 1:

*goes to Youtube video of police officer asking skaters to leave a property that they're not supposed to be on*

"Fuck the police"

Type 2:

*A guy with a video camera filming himself walking around with a assault rifle strapped over his shoulder*

Police officer: Hey bud, what's going on? What's the deal with the rifle?


Police officer: Would you mind if I saw your ID?

Martyr: ILLEGAL TERRY STOP. I DO NOT CONSENT. I DO NOT CONSENT. (What the martyr doesn't realize is that the police officer asked for his ID, and didn't demand it, which does not constitute a Terry stop)

Police officer: Ok sir, have a nice day.

*Martyr goes on Reddit*


Type 3:

Maynnnneeee I ain't done nuttin. These pigs just don't have nuttin better to do than harass me. They just don't like me

Type 4:

While I was protesting the new bill that passed, a police officer grabbed my hair and threw me to the ground and hit me with his baton 3 or 4 times in the stomach. He cracked one of my ribs, and I am going to file a lawsuit against the department. My friend caught the whole thing on video.

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.

The people you run from.

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.

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.
1. None.
2. "Dude, someone called the cops on my gig last night!"

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.
