    Who are these shills in uniform who stand behind politicians to make the politicians and their message sound good? Are they forced to do it? Brainwashed? Or truly supportive of those who would use us as cannon fodder for their failing system?

    (For the record, thinking of the Biden dog and pony show earlier this week)

    Under the authority of military command I had to stand in a lot of unpleasant formations during my service. Fortunately I missed all Politicos.

    I call them 3 legged dogs.
    They are police administrators that act like 3 legged dogs, they get their azz kicked when walking around with 4 legged dogs so the become the dog-beotch of the 4 legged dog politician.
    They will bark and bark and bark but only have bite when protected by the 4 legged dog politician they are he-beotched to....
    Pretty much a useless shell of a cop willing to put on a uniform and sell out to those that support their useless commands.

    But Other than that I have no strong feeling on the matter.................. :)

    When I discussed this with my wife, I explained that I would take the lumps and letters for refusing to stand in BS political photo ops. Even if it meant time off.

    But then again, my attorney would have a field day over that. :)

    You are probably a lot like me. We have those sort of dog and pony shows from time to time....They never seem to ask me....I suspect they know the answer they will get from me even though they aren't asking a question....managers tend to try to avoid fights....if they didn't mind a fight they wouldn't be managers.

    Our command staff is not at will. It's a promotion with civil service protection as well. I think each promotion you are on probation for 6 months first.

    But yeah, any of the leadership here that stands up against the head honchos gets keelhauled.

    You got to dance with them that brung ya.

    Every once in a while you'll get a guy in the top slot with backbone and integrity that stands up for his troops to the city management, will fall on his sword rather than compromise his principles.

    They call those "movies".

    No not most , in Police departments only the top dog is usually an at will employee.

    They're a bunch of fatass, no-balls, never-did-anything-remotely-resembling-real-police-work, ass kissers who dream of retiring to Thailand and an unlimited supply of 11 year old boys.

    Here, in my county, the biggest department is maybe 90 cops. Mine is ~65. So any photo ops are usually taken by the brass, although I know of certain sergeants that cannot get enough camera time. It's quite weird.

    I'm currently in a position where I have "run" some special events. For example, they re-named a section of road in town in what was clearly a pre- election publicity stunt, given the timing.

    So I was out there in my white shirt, hat, etc....standing at the back of the crowd, cell phone up to one ear, radio earbud in the other, looking entirely too busy running things to be involved in standing around like some politician's trophy cop.

    Few people do passive-aggressive better than me.

    You failed to work "barely literate misogynist, racist homophobic formerly roided-out thug-bully" in there, so therefore this only gets a 7.
