2. The only difference between a cop and a criminal
Edited on Thu Mar-23-06 08:19 AM by Gman
is a badge. They both are of the same mentality. Cops are just a micron-thin hair's width on the side of the law because of their badge. Yeah, I can think of one exception... and he quit the force to become a Catholic priest. There may be another somewhere. I came of age in the late 60's and 70's and have found this has not changed over the years.

My wife thought highly of a fellow volunteer at our daughter's school. I told her under no circumstances should she trust him because he was a cop. Some things happened later at the school. Who was the first one to turn on everyone else? Of course, the cop. I told my wife, "I told you so." It's so predictable.

Another story, after my wife and I got married, she was outside one weekday morning doing a little yardwork close to the street. She told me later about how nice this cop was that stopped by to just chat and talk about if everything was ok in the neighborhood and other (probably meaningless) topics. My response was, "That SOB was hittin' on you, the SOB!" She was shocked. Found out a few months later the guy had a kid going to school at our daughter's school. She pointed him out to me. I knew the guy and told her of his reputation of being the biggest whore-dog in three counties (another cop trait).

And, for every ex-cop, there is one helluva story on why he's an ex-cop.
