I was walking around the harbor today, and I saw three policemen riding around in a golf cart, so I suppose that's a start.

They got segways too. At least I think they still do. 

 

And they're hilarious.

There are shit people in any profession, including cops.

 

1. In most professions, the shit people are just causing headaches for others, not injury, death, or deprivation of rights.

 

2. In most professions, the shit people are not defended with a code of omertà.

In most professions, they don’t put their lives on the line to protect you. In most professions, they aren’t shot at, stabbed, run over, etc...to protect you.

In most professions, you have a support system that isn’t crumbling around you.

That is absolutely no excuse. In fact, since those activities are criminal, law enforcement should want to avoid being associated with those acts, and those who commit them.

That's irrelevant here. Not saying it isn't dangerous, but if you signed up for this and you're either incompetent or malicious, the issues are magnified for good reason. The danger and responsibility ingrained in this profession require the best people at their job. 

 

And I'd argue that the lack of a support system is based on them finally being called out on their shit and not knowing any other way. But if that's the case, then, erm, they gotta find new guys. 

 

(I also think a rise in officer pay would help, but that's another issue entirely)

And the lack of support system is what the budget is. Dispatchers not following up...no equipment, no cars, etc..that’s what I’m talking about.

This is so stupid..which follows suit to the rest of your posts.

You want to slam on a whole profession for a few.

Being a cop is hard..sure it’s their choice..it’s also the choice of someone to be a teacher and yet we have to hear about hard they have it. Everyone makes that choice in their professions but it doesn’t take away from the fact that their lives are in danger every time they go to work.

You are dealing with fucked up people all the time, people who want to kill you and people who have no respect for you.

We have no idea what that’s like.

You can have an adult conversation without resorting to insults, so cut those out.

300 murders happening in this city every year and all people can lose their shit over is some teens fighting each other in the Inner Harbor. SMH

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I was almost a little surprised when I was reading the most violent cities list from last year. Detroit, St. Louis, Memphis, Bmore, expected those, but like Little Rock, Milwaukee, Rockford, IL some of those were kinda surprising. You hear a bunch nationally about the usual suspects, but don't hear much about the others.

I just saw this. I'm saying that your response is irrelevant to what he said, not that what you said is irrelevant in and of itself. But either way I think we're past that in the other responses. I just wanted to note that I totally missed this response. 

 

Also, in response to something else, totally believe that more funds are needed for police work. Even if the cops are needlessly wasting them (which is another issue entirely), it's still needed.

Milwaukee is -really- bad, and notoriously segregated. And the police/community relationship there is pretty strained, as well, which...well, segregation. NPR has done a couple of specials about the area, I believe. Nobody thinks of Wisconsin as...well, anything like this, really.

In their defense, those murders are happening...you know...over there, and not in the Harbor.
