    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".
