This is such bullshit, if the guy shot the cop he prolly gets life if the cop died, and now the cop shoots him prolly not even gonna get more than 10 years in prison. I strongly dislike the police, because there is so much corruption. I feel bad for the guy and his family.

Seems like this is an unwritten law to the police....

I doubt all officers make $100,000 salary in Long Island. Even if they do, cops in Canada and many parts of the US don't get that kind of coin.

And when I say thankless I don't mean by how much they get paid, I mean by the respect that virtually no one shows them anymore. All I hear from people is "Cops are pigs, there all crooked, blah blah blah" while no one gives credit to officers who took a bullet on duty to shut down Crack Shacks that might be selling to anyone of our family members, cops who actually do good in this world but yet still are classified as "No good Pigs".

Not from the start. Put in overtime, promotions, the college degree you have, and how we you do on the job factors in how much you get paid. The average you get for starting off as a cop is around 40-50K a year. It's different for every department, but that's around the price that most cops get first year.

There are bad cops, but you are stereotyping just like what people accuse cops of doing. Just because there are corrupted cops out there, doesn't mean all are.

If you are in trouble for anything, who do you call?

So what about the black police officers? Are the abiding this "unwritten law?" What about the Detroit Police department where 87% of the officers are black? Yes there are racist officers, but to say all police follow an "unwritten law" that all blacks are criminals is an uneducated statement.

Just like everything in life, there is bad in everything and we can't make it seem like the bad overcomes the good and not just concentrate on the bad events/stories.

"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

I always try and be on the side of the police, as it actually makes me angry to hear people bash the police and degrade them, but it's hard to see the justification in this. That being said, this doesn't effect my view of police or their role at all.

they actually do get that though it may take 5+ years their starting salary I believe is in the high 70' to low 80's on the island,city cops make much less which makes little sense to me seeing the city is so much more dangerous. I also dont dislike cops in general, I have trained mma with so many cops its ridiculous. They were pretty much all cool, just into it like the rest of us, but there are a few bad apples in every bunch.
