    Better?:D
    I had some very good friends in the Tulsa Police Department, many years ago I helped several of them form a church in Tulsa. They told me the department was just like the society it served, there was good and bad and hard working and lazy. There are no supermen or gods among them, it's a way to make a living.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I think people forget the size and shape of this country when they see the news and world condensed into the screen of a computer or TV. Figures vary depending upon what you consider a law enforcement officer, but it's pretty safe to say that there are about 600,000 sworn (armed) law enforcement officers in the US.

    Yes it would be nice if they were all well versed and thoroughly respectful of the US Constitution and all applicable laws. But they aren't. So if there is one bad-cop story per day on the news or internet buzz, that's a six one hundredths of one percent "bad cop" rate. Now if you double that to include abusive cops who don't take action so they don't get in the news, and double it again to include the simply rude, then double it again to include the rude and obnoxious but within the law and professional standards you're still only up to a less than one percent bad-cop ratio.

    I once got pulled over for going 30 above the speed limit, without current registration, and no insurance. Cop took a glance at my Military ID and told me to get out of there. Saved me a SHITLOAD of trouble, cause I most likely would have ended up going AWOL had he done what he was supposed to since I was several states away from my duty station.

    That man was several shades of awesome.
    And you were several shades of stupid for being in a situation like that...

    There is also a function of collective memory on stuff like this. I have a good friend, well a long term friend anyway, who sometimes tells me a story that he appears to honestly believe happened to him, but it actually comes from my repertoire. I'm a really good story teller, and sometimes people seem to feel like they were there. And I have done a lot of stupid and funny things that make for good stories. But I also know people who repeat urban legends as if they actually happened to them, and they believe that they did. I don't understand the process, but I am witness to it.

    I was 19. It comes with the territory.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
