36. I've known quite a few cops
There've been a couple I'd even call friends. (One of 'em once pulled me over siren and everything to go have coffee with him.) There was another who was famous for being an asshole, but that was kind of an act he put on to put the fear of the law into teenagers. He gave me my first ticket at 17, and it was quite awhile before I got another one.

I've encountered only two cops detectives, actually who were real assholes, and they were later charged with something like skimming money and/or drugs from drug busts. The rest were just people people who do a job that most of us wouldn't. Like you said, considering what they have to deal with every day, I think we should afford them more understanding and respect.
