    Do you ever take the side of right instead of wrong. What the hell happened to you that made you so goofy?

    The good cop, bad cop, not all cops argument has long since been a non-argument for me. All cops are in a very corrupt organization and the only ones that are good are the ones that see it and leave voluntarily.

    Here's something I saved written by someone else and I agree wholeheartedly with their assessment. :


    Brandon RaccaDear policeman:

    You're not a peace officer. Your job is not Law Enforcement. Those are euphemisms. You don't keep the peace. You routinely initiate conflicts where, otherwise, no conflict would have been. You are an agent by which your employer uses violence to enforce a monopoly on law de facto. The vast majority of the disputes that you initiate on behalf of your employer are also adjudicated by your employer, where the plaintiff, the judge, the antagonist (that's you) and the only witness (also you), all represent the same party, and, since no corpus de lecti can be produced, probably (depends on which state you're in) doesn't technically qualify to be heard according to its own "laws". Your employer is indistinguishable from a criminal cartel.

    You do not serve us. When the matter of whether or not you have a duty to protect the subjects of your employer has been brought before one of your employer's courts, your employer has decided that you do not. But, when you are charged with the task of using deadly force to apprehend a person who has incurred no liability for damages to anyone, you are obligated to obey.

    Everything I've written, here, is literally true. I understand that you can't believe that, but, once you strip away all the obfuscation and rationalizations, nothing else remains.

    So, you see, even if you always do your job, as you believe it to be, to what you believe to be the best of your ability, you cannot be a good cop. There is no such thing as a good cop because what cops do is, by necessity of its nature, bad.

    There is a reason they call them 'beat cops'. They like to beat people!

    And if you were addressing a liberal, I would agree. Most of them can't be reasoned with. However, since I am not a liberal, how about trying to poke holes in what I presented and give me a reasoned response detailing where I'm wrong.

    You whole rant is wrong. Very few cops are anything like you describe. Cops are bad by their very nature? Sharpton would love you. Yea, this is exactly what a liberal would say.
