Police Officer Awareness
Posted 8/4/15 , edited 8/5/15
I just want to post this because a lot of people are posting about how bad cops are these days and I just thought this poem was amazing, I found it on Facebook. I think that yes, although there are some bad eggs out there, I don't believe all police officers are bad guys. For the most part they are just trying to do their job, and if you disrespect them then of course they are going to react harshly. Anyways, That's my two sense, enjoy the poem.

"Not all cops."

No not all cops. :)
Not all cops are good,
Not all cops are bad.

Sure, there are police legitimately trying to do their job, but there are police who don't, and just abuse their power over civilians.

There are always a couple of rotten tomatoes in literally everything ever with people in it.
Jobs, websites, media, businesses, etc.

So I don't see the point in this. People who do this just wanna dismiss their actions & make them feel they shouldn't be responsible. So all this does is encourage them to continue tp to do what they're doing wrong.

It's not an easy job. It's rife with issue never knowing how this next call will go, whether it will be a smooth process or the call that gets your face on national news, your resignation, and condemnation for the rest of your life. You don't know if today will be the day that that car falls to yield to your lit up vehicle and blasts through the intersection despite every precaution and someone ends up hurt or dead. Then you're at fault for the accident. You show up to a scene where people may not want you there, but you were called to respond because something wasn't right and now you must do your job to the best of your abilities. The job is to keep others safe, even if they don't care for you more than the idea of you.

I thank you brothers. I rely on you to keep me and my partners safe when we show up to dodgey calls. To keep people from running at that burning building that we're trying to put out. I might joke about you and say some things behind your back. But I appreciate what you're trying to do and know that when shit goes wrong and you get hit I'll drop what I'm doing to help you get back home in one piece.

Ya, we know.
And you guys make sure we know.

But this just tries to dismiss any of their wrongful actions towards civilians and doesn't actually do anything good nor bad.
So, its pointless.

Of course there are, there are bad people in every profession across the board. Just as you said.
Of course I am Anzn, I of course made this thread to intentionally dismiss their actions.
Exactly why I did it.

So what makes the police an exception to where you want us to trust all of them?

"Police Brutality is Bad"
"But not all Cops" <-- This disenfranchise people trying to bring light to a problem

(pshh...there is nothing wrong with saying police brutality is bad so stop reacting like it is)

Dismiss it? No. What this is doing is saying that it's a tough job that isn't easy. It says that despite the shit that goes wrong and the shitty officers in the job, we appreciate what they stand for. It doesn't dismiss wrong doing as they need to follow laws as well.

You're always right on the money, you know that?
I intentionally made this as a big F.U. to all the
civilians in the world who don't cooperate with the
police. And it is completely right of you to say it is
pointless. And you have every right not to trust
them just because of a post.

No, there isn't anything wrong with saying police brutality because there really are cops
who abuse their powers.

If you don't address to them properly, and say "Some police may be bad but-" the police, and nobody, listens. Because the police who actually do something bad, won't think twice about about our complaints/troubles from them.

There are good ones out there that people don't want to see, but thankfully there are cameras.

Once again, right on the money Anzn.
You were made for this political stuff,
you should be a lawyer some day,
I think you'd do really well.

Imagine every time a kid gets abused people said "but not all parents are bad"
