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?

1. Somebody that is supposed to protect and serve you, but they are most likely drinking coffee and eating donuts, along with pulling you over and harassing you for no reason.

2. Something that rappers like to rap about
1. Dude, I just got pulled over by the police today because I didn't give him a glazed donut at the bakery. DAMN!!!

2.Yo I'm rapping about the police nigga, nobody is going to stop me and nobody is going to cop me....yeeeah!!!

A group of people sworn to uphold the law. Unfortunately the only way to be a truly honest member of the police is to know nothing about fellow police.

Joe felt he was an honest policeman, even though he knew:

Officer X was protecting two drug houses
Officer Y has sex in his cruiser.
Officer Z said he was patrolling and was really at his house playing Xbox.
Officer Z also kept a sack of weed and .357 magnum he found in a suspects car.

Joe said he is honest. One has to wonder if Joe know he would have been fired for failing to reporting 1% of what he has seen in the private sector.
Joe is with the police. He told me he is honest. Then again he never reported witnessing Officer X planting evidence five times. By his on admissions half the department is shady.
