149. O.K. I made some assumptions which are unfounded.
Why did you not simply state that you are a home care nurse/assistant, we could have avoided a lot of misunderstanding.

However, that said. The people you deal with DO NOT represent the same danger to you, that a hopped up nutcase does to a cop. That is not to say that they are not a risk to you, but you do know with some degree of certainty what you are dealing with and can behave and respond accordingly. A cop only knows what he is dealing with AFTER it blows up in his face and then he is expected to posses the wisdom of Solomon and the clinical skills of Jung or Freud.

You deal with people who do not know what they are doing. Cops usually are faced by people who a) do know what they are doing, and b) are determined not to submit peaceably. Not because of some actual mental problem, but because they don't fucking wanna, and they're not gonna be made to without a fight.
