The governmental department charged with the regulation and enforcement of the behaviors of a certain jurisdiction. Main authority is the power of arrest and ability to enforce the laws of the community. Without the presence of the police the world would collapse. God Bless the Police
The local Police Department does a mighty fine job.

Thugs will do anything until the Police show up.

An organisation found in many countries that has several upstanding members....
The rest are power-tripping bastards that are too lazy/cowardly to stop serious criminals like heroin dealers, wasting their time on skateboarders, stoners and 17 year olds with cider.
1) "An off-duty police officer shot the fucker that wasted Dimebag Darrell, saving many audience members.Good guy."

2) "That bastard pig beat up another skateboarder today. He claimed skateboarding was 'terrorism'. While he was doing this, 9 people died from heroin overdoses within half a mile."

Police are not all bad. But alot of them are brutal and they give a bad name to police. I hate a great deal police. Why? because more of them have been disrespectful and harmful than they have been courteous and helpful (in my personal experience. and don't think im a little dick I know how to talk to "authority figures" with respect). The IDEA of police is of course a good one. However there should be more of a screening on those who wish to pursue a career in law enforcement.
The Police made me get out of the car and wouldnt let my girl have a sweatshirt out of the car while they tore it apart looking for weed.

The police found 11 roaches in a complete scrubby stoner car. No roach goes to waste around me dude.

The police wouldnt let me have my medication for 48 hours causing severe withdrawl symptoms because my house had been broken into, and they were "not allowed to disturb a crime scene". MY HOUSE MY MEDS FUCK THE POLICE

The police are hired to protect the community. Police officers work hard and recieve modest pay to help the community. Despite that, many people treat them with disrespect and look down on them because of the few crooked cops, yet there are bad members of any group or organization. The police generally have to handle idiots that shouldn't be within a mile of a weapon, the people that cause gun-control laws to be established. They work to get rid of drunk idiots, especially ones that are driving 2-ton vehicles at 70 mph. Police officers educate children about safety, they save the lives of many people and put their lives on the line to control disorder. Some people (mainly thugs) hate police officers, they generally spit on them and call them pigs when they don't realize that they would probably be brutally murdured if there were no police. Others don't follow laws because they don't think it applies to them if they think it is a dumb law. There are bad members of the police force, but there are much more good honest police that work hard to help others and the community.
Idiot: Yo, what the fuck, damn pigs.

Smart Person: Shut up, you blatant idiot. Do you understand what cops have to go through and how hard they work to make sure idiots like you aren't killed?

Idiot: Shut the fuck up man, what if there were no police! That would be awesome.

Smart Person: You really are scum, you do realize what life would be like without police?
