29. Stereotyping all policemen as a single unit is like stereotyping any race or religion

 

Which is how conspiracy theories and hatred to a group festers and becomes more.

Remember cold blooded fameseeker man and friend on a mission because of a loony conspiracy theory killed many children and adults in Oklahoma City.
One person did the same in the Conn. School ( abbreviate it that way because CT equals conspiracy theorist/theory).

Let's say one has three neighbors across the street (assuming there are streets, otherwise say Ranches, or whatever), and all three are police.
Would one automatically hate all 3?
Say, if one likes to watch something and they had a 57inch plasma tv and all the refreshments one could think of (but nothing larger than 24 ounces, as 48 ounces is not needed), would one refuse the invitation?

And if ones house was burning, would one not call the police and fire department to put it out?

What if the person likes the job, should they be denied their freedom of choice(first amendment) of where to work or assemble?
