    I don't really like it when only "bad cop" stories are posted, because they give everyone the wrong impression.
    Cop-haters are going to be cop-haters.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Agreed. Also, it would probably put the guy out of his misery.

    I was getting gas today around 4:20 this morning at the Sheetz at SR94 and SR18 in Medina County, Ohio. I was on my way to the gym. The roads were terrible. There were three Ohio State Highway Patrolmen (1 female and 2 male) ordering their lunch or breakfast after being out all night. As I paid for my coffee I gave the clerk a $20 and said put this on their food and thank them for me, and walked out to my truck. As I pulled towards Akron, one of them leaned out the door and waved to me.

    They have a very hard job and I respect that.

    That's because nothing has to be done about the "good cops".

    Most cops are good people yea some are on the take some are racist some are lazy but the same can be said of any profession or segment of society.
    I have had the experience of being shot at people trying to run me over andchaving to hunt down a armed robery suspect in the woods at night among other incidents. Untill you have to face this your self its easy to arm chair quarter back .
