deacon, I'm just trying to say that cops are human like everyone else, and should be respected, like anyone else until proven guilty of harming others. I just don't like lumping a bunch of people into one category, it's not how I think. I think it's sad that on the Daily Paul, it seems the general attitude towards cops is one of disdain and disrespect. There is even an attitude of paranoia, like cops are just out to get us and make our lives hell. I could tell you several stories of great cops, but the response from a lot of people here would be, "ya but..." lol. So it's not really productive to debate it I suppose. I am really, genuinely sorry for the loss of your friend, wow. That is terrible. Perhaps my attitude would be different had I suffered that loss.
The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
