Oh come now, you aren't told on a daily basis at your job how everyone could do what you do? They're all smarter than us, know the law better than us, are tougher than us, more adept at dealing with intricate, delicate situations than us, and yes, far more modest than us.

If you don't believe me, just look back about 7 posts and I'm sure that person (whoever he or she pretends to be in here) would be more than happy to expound for hours about the very above subjects. Nay, I say you wouldn't be able to shut them up...no matter how much you tried. Amiright?

I don't argue with drunks, druggies and/or zealots, or discuss religion or politics... no sense in fighting an unwinnable battle on their battlefield.

Dragoon, Patchman, Apparently you guys can dish it out; but you can't take it. Want proof? Look at the character and content of this very thread, itself!

Many of the comments posted here - and offered by various police officers, including yourselves - clearly show exactly the mentality I've described. With no malice, whatsoever, I rest my case!

If a man in a wheelchair is carrying a kilo of cocaine, has a bomb strapped to his chest, and is dumping mags from an AK47 while lighting bunnies on fire, the polce are expected to ask him politely to stop before using any force.

Old women are not capable of violence or non-compliance.

Barack Obama is the devil/savior and will restrict/support your right to own a gun.

Mitt Romney is the devil/savior and will restrict/support your right to own a gun.

Trolls multiply like bunnies and smell blood in the water like a shark.

Sorry, were we talking about the whole Interconnectedwebnets or just GT?

Well, the problem is:

1. No one cares except those that do the job.
2. When you do the job, its always about tough love for the others that do.

So, you get it comming and going. You get it from the self-appointed sanctimonious retards of the world. Then we are own worst enemies as we give each other a ration of hell as well.

What has kept it together for me in over 14 years is God and the love of a good woman.

Also, I'd quit tomorrow before I'd eat my gun. I've known guys that have, though. It isn't worth it.

Well, in a twisted sort of way, you are right in one sense: Drag and Patch are two of a kind.

Nope not the point. The point was that Officers develop methods of not getting sucked into the emotional quagmire, and if they are unable to be able to shield themselves it will overwhelm them.

Because if someone claims to be a police officer, and (being human and off-duty) makes a statement on a public forum that you do not agree with, then LEO's are horrible people? Hmmm....so calling police officers pompous *******s, while being a pompous ******* to "close your case" is not really going to win over any support from anyone without an agenda. Go make a few more CopTalk user names, and support you arguements, because you're not getting any support from me. turd

Let's analyze factors here -

Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).

Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

Believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).

Requires excessive admiration.

Has a very strong sense of entitlement, e.g., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.

Is exploitative of others, e.g., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.

Lacks empathy, e.g., is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.

Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.

Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.



I'll say it again. Someone visiting C/T exhibits many of the above behaviors. Someone should get professional help.

"...you guys can dish it out; but you can't take it." Really? The catalyst for this thread is the incessant barrage of ridicule, baseless universal pronouncements of erroneous 'fact' about law enforcement - the job and the people - like the sanctimonious pronouncements in your first post in this thread.

Actually, these boys are being very polite in their summations of what they experience on the internet and their opinions of the people behind those experiences.

They are also being quite restrained in their responses to you.

While you say, "I rest my case," and someone correct me if I am wrong, I believe in the past such pronouncements have been empty of any real intent to indeed leave a thread. [/takeoffmoderatorhat] However, it might be wise to let that be your last post. Otherwise, someone might be inclined to believe you are truly trolling...[takeoffmoderatorhat]

Now, there are a couple of ways to stay active in this thread without incurring the wrath of "Big Giant Head." I'll let you figure that out.

And the type of mentality your post(s) displays is precisely the mentality being roasted in this thread.

Perhaps the phrase for him should be; "Stick a fork in him. He's done."

And, since I didn't have any popcorn handy I had a cinnamon roll and some milk. I rather enjoyed it.

When posting about the views and opinions of Non LEO with a chip on their shoulder towards LEO's one or more will always show up to prove your points.
