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 much...no 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
