I lived 4 houses from a cop, he was married, but had ongoing affairs with other women, and was convicted finally of making hookers do him so they would not get arrested for prostitution.
He also shot up road signs that I know of, and was just mean to everyone.
He bragged about his job being great, because he could beat people up for fun because he had a badge.
An ex-friend is a cop, he got so rude and horrible, he lost all of his once good friends.
I actually wanted to be a cop when I was young.
I signed up, but once done the training, only was a member for 12 weeks and quit. I then chose to go a different carreer route, as it was not a job of serve and protect the citizens.
We were taught to lie, conceal, be a brotherhood and stick together no matter what.
To always assume everyone is guilty, and if they can later prove themselves innocent fine.
What I saw disgusted me, and your screwed if you rat out the really bad other members.
Basically its a license to break the law, and be a jerk.
I went in wearing rose colored glasses, and what I saw was such corruption, I cannot ever respect the way its done ever again, unless they do a complete overhaul of the system.
