Excellent post, Will. It is

Excellent post, Will. It is good to have good ones among the police. Most of our local cops are good people too, though I doubt that many have thought things through as you have. We just voted in a C4L sheriff and I am looking forward to his swearing in.

I knew a few police when I was in the LA area fifteen years ago, including a homocide detective. They tend to either become alcoholics or develop a nasty attitude. Think of it, day in and day out they deal with nothing but the scum of the earth. I think many of them forget what normal people are like, hence the attitudes we often see.

I remember an article in a local paper a dozen years ago. It was an interview with a Coeur d'Alene cop who had moved here from Calif. In the article he said that being a peace officer here was worlds away from Los Angeles. "People here like us," he said, "they wave to us - and they use all their fingers!"
