    I don't know why I'm afraid of them when I've never done anything worse than speed, but whatevs

    i'm no more afraid of the police than i am of any armed person who could just shoot me on the flimsiest reasoning

    which is to say

    a healthy level of caution

    but i am not terrified of them

    One time my friends and I bought a 12 pack to smuggle into the movies.

    Of course, we decided to drink a beer before it started and as soon as we did the cops pulled up.

    They took our beer and gave us tickets for drinking in public.

    that was a shitty trade.

    I've always found as long as you are respectful and cooperative most cops will be cool...most. I've been lucky and never run into a dick cop.

    my uncle's a correctional officer

    so, as he is legally defined as a peace officer, he has a badge and has arrest powers and shit

    he has a number of stories where he's whipped out his badge to get people to shut the fuck up and do as he says or give him respect

    I got pulled over the other day for doing 68 in what I thought was a 60 zone but was actually a 50. I assumed he had somewhere to be so I kept switching lanes to get out of his way before I realized I was the one he was after.

    I pulled over and apologized, saying I thought I was getting out of his way. He chuckled and took my license and registration. Asked if I knew why he was pulling me over. "No" I said. He told me my speed and as he said it the actual speed limit of the area dawned on me, and I apologized and told him about my confusion. He went and rant he plate and my license and came back and said "Watch your speed, ok? Most guys wouldn't call this a warning and that's like a $350 ticket because this is a school zone."

    I like the cops I meet.

    a friend of mine, his brother got tossed out of cop school

    why?

    because the instructors thought he was too much of a power-hungry, bullying asshole.

    he was the kind of person who wants to be a cop so he can have a gun and push people around

    and, thank the white christ, this time someone actually noticed and made sure this shit-heel never became a cop

    dude moved back into his parents place and got a job working at wendy's

    got fired from that for getting into a fight with a co-worker

    dude needs therapy, he's got fuckin' problems.

    I got handcuffed at a bar once for dancing at a woman a cop was talking to. My friend got put against the wall but I got handcuffed and put in the back of the car after being called a fag and being told that the girl "wasn't for me". He then threatened to take me in for public drunkenness. In a bar.

    One of many stories where cops are power-tripping dill holes. And I realize I should have expected some reaction but not such an overreaction.

    i don't drive

    but i've been in the vehicles of friends who have been yoinked over by the police for various things

    local cops? they tend to be reasonable

    OPP always over-react. they treat everyone like they have a gun and are possibly fleeing a meth deal. they're awful.

    a buddy of mine got pulled over by them for speeding. He was, in fact, speeding, and totally deserved to get pulled over and given a ticket.

    now, usually, if you've not got any speeding tickets on record, you can sometimes "haggle down" a cop into giving you a smaller ticket and a warning. this is a thing cops often do, they'll say you were only 10 over instead of 20 over and give you a warning. you'll still get a ticket, but it's more of a "lesson" than getting reamed in the ass for half a grand.

    so, my buddy was trying that. the OPP cocksucker, not only was he not going to play ball, he was insulted at the idea of anyone trying to negotiate and so he actually increased the supposed speed we were pulled over for. my buddy was like "what the fuck, you can't do that." and the OPP was like "OH YOU KNOW WHAT I CAN DO?"

    and we both had to get out of the car, and him and his partner frisked and cuffed us, and when i was like "what're we even being arrested for?" he was like "shut the fuck up" and slammed my head into the hood of the car, breaking my glasses and busting my eyebrow open.

    then we sat in the back of their car for half an hour, while they basically sat outside and took a break, made some phone calls, and had a good laugh.

    then they let us go, and gave my buddy a ticket.

    i freaked out, made a bunch of phone calls, threatened to sue, etc.

    got a formal apology letter for their conduct, promises that the "situation would be examined" etc.

    the reality is i haven't got the money to sue them and it'd be me and my buddy (who was legit speeding) against the word of two "officers of the law" and we'd lose

    so

    fuck the OPP, that's not even the only incident i have of them being cocksuckers

    so I guess you're not down with the OP-
    so pony what you're saying is

    you're not down with OPP

    my uncle, the CO, is an otherwise nice guy but working there for a few years has basically made him sorta racist and histrionic

    he's constantly harping on my mom about everything my little brother does and wears that it might be some sign that he's in a gang or doing drugs or something

    he deals with so many young adult and juvie offenders he basically has begun to see all teenagers and young adults as criminals

    and he's kinda openly racist now, sometimes

    I've never dealt with cops in the States, but I have dealt with them down here. They're a lot less intimidating down here, and generally come off as assholes trying to get a little power back in their lives. Mostly unfit and not very effective, they just bully students mostly.

    One tried to shoo a group of me and my friends away from behind the mall when we weren't doing anything wrong and basically I politely refused and asked why. One fat cop put his arm over my shoulder and said something like "If you don't leave I'll slap you across your mouth. The law gives me the power to do that. To enforce my actions" or some shit. I spun away and said that I doubted the law did not in fact give him the power to attack people when they weren't doing anything wrong. Then I asked him his name.

    They left after that.

    you know who do have it rough?

    dudes who work in the child porn bustin' unit

    because they have to spend a great deal of time cataloging and examining child pornography they've seized, to try to identify locations or times or people or whatever.

    a friend of mine's dad did that for a while

    it pretty much rotted out his soul. he told me that one of the most horrifying things in it is when you start to see the same kids appearing in multiple sets, and it's clear that there's a span of time as the kids are visibly getting older

    which means this is going on over long periods of time to these kids, possibly years, and they're growing up with having this happen to them

    he did it for a few months, but then realized that it was starting to do some damage to him. he was at the mall and he saw some dad hugging his little girl and tickling her and he realized he wanted to shoot that guy

    so he dropped out of that unit and got some therapy and shit

    still gives him nightmares

    Sir I would like to introduce you to Detective Five Coats. Basically my car broke down once in a no parking zone and to make sure it didn't get towed I called the police, they transfered me to Detective Coats.

    Detective Five Coats had a voice like he had been smoking since he was 5, he wore a Fedora and yes, 5 trench coats. He was one of the nicest people I had ever met and since then I have dealt with him a few times with things like friends stolen cars and a break in at a friends house.

    This and the other people you've referenced that you know in Law Enforcement are why I just couldn't do any of those jobs at all and why I got mad respect for the people that do it. I've run into cops that were being kind of an asshole but you gotta realize that these are people mired in society's shit all day every day for nowhere NEAR enough money. You can't blame them for starting to see shit where there might not actually be shit.
