As a parallel....
It always struck me as odd how people will say "you cant judge all law abiding gun owners by the actions of a few criminals and crazies"....but they have no problem believing all cops and PD's are somehow the same and answerable for each others actions.
I don't deny that some cops/PD's are bad. The whole meme of the thin blue line is overplayed though...I want bad cops winnowed out. I don't want cops railroaded out by overzealous and ignorant masses either.
It seems to me that everybody is way too quick to fire an otherwise good cop over a singular **** up..yes we are held to a higher standard, but we are humans and some form of fairness in discipline should apply. I've seen cries for termination over a singular DWI. If it was a one time event I think that a stiff punishment applies...just like it would be for a non LEO.
But I'm wandering afield here.....carry on.

My posts were only meant to point out one bad part, and in no way was I wanting to attack the good.

Anyone else spotted the "Don't Bring Skittles to A Gunfight" T-shirts?

And I would hardly call my opinions "beliefs". Beliefs would imply that I'm 100% set in my views, which is also false.

Since we're jumping all over the place, I'd just like to point out that with a few exceptions, Orlando is the asshole of the universe, especially OBT:
Synopsis: some ass-monkey snatched an old lady's purse and failed to ensure she was fully detached before starting to drive off.

The American Legislative Exchange Council said it will disband a task force that shaped “Stand Your Ground” laws such as one now under scrutiny in Florida, after the departure of corporate members including Coca-Cola Co. (KO) and Kraft Foods Inc. (KFT)
