How do the cops act around you guys?

Listen, I'm too old to know that it isn't cool to be rude to cops, and that doing so will most likely get you a ticket, but listen to this. I was driving home after getting some coffee and a cop was parking horizontally in the road, so no cars could pass. I thought it was because of a house party or something, but he wouldn't move even when I called out to him, so I get out of my car to walk over to see what's up. When I walk over, the cop is like "You just walked over a live wire" (there's a pretty big storm here, and if the cable goes out I will be so pissed), which means that an electrical cable fell down and was still giving off electricity. What I don't understand is why the cop wouldn't tell me before I walked over to him, stepping over the wire, that there was such a dangerous problem?! Of course I wasn't rude, and just turned around and went the other way, but was he just trying to prove a point to me? Anyway, it seems because of the lack of dangerous activity around here cops will latch on to anything to try to make you feel like an asshole. How the hell was I supposd to know there was a live wire in the middle of the road?! Anyway, I'm just venting and was wondering if you guys have dealt with some sort of stupidity by cops. (Don't get me wrong I completely respect cops 100%, I just don't get the point he was trying to prove.) Anyway, I'm done venting and this card will be awesome so I'm okay!!!

You're right, you're right...I know it's never a good idea to ever approach a cop, but I wanted to know what was up! If he tazed me in this situation, I probably would have set a couple of houses on fire.

me and a couplee of my friends were going up to vermont to go snowboarding last year and they were going to sleep at my place so we could all leave bright and early the next morning

so i met them at a mcdonalds in my town (this was at like midnight btw) so we left the mcdonalds and four cop cars pulled me over and started searching my car cause they thought i was a drug dealer

it was pretty ridiculous and i normally wouldnt have let them just search my car like that but i didnt have anything to worry about and my dad is a firefighter in my town so he knows pretty much every cop so it wouldnt look too good if i refused

'I know several cops personally and am generally very nice to cops so most of them in my town dont bother me. The cop probably didnt expect you to walk over and people yell insults at cops all the time he probably tuned it out.

Cops go through enough shit in their job and get no appreciation for it. I for one treat cops with the up most respect and thank them when I get the chance. that is probably why they treat me good as well.

No offense but I have to say it wasnt smart to confront a cop.

Hmmmmm apartment security guards in Austin are awesome. One guy came in during a party and everyone got all scared cause there were a bunch of people under 21. Then he was like..."Mind if I have a beer?" and started drinking and talking with us. He even let us take pictures of him fake handcuffing/arresting us. I feel horrible though cause apparently he got fired because those pictures were put onto facebook and I guess somehow his boss or whatever found them. Poor guy

Most people don't seem to get that cops are people too. they have lives like you and me and have families to care for. Some are nice and down to earth, so are just plain mean, but we have no idea what their day was like. Maybe they had to arrest a child molestor, a rapist, had to beat some trash guy down from beating his wife, who knows.

The ones I've encountered, I just do as they ask and talk politely to them. Once everything is set and done, I say my farwells and so does the cop and along goes our lives.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann
