    After a great deal of thought....I have decided

    To tender my resignation as a police officer. For those of you who worried about my "part time" job...I'm done. I've enjoyed it and it was a learning experience and made me a better, stronger person....but it's not for me. Too much politics and bullchit in the department.

    Anyway.....thot I'd share.

    Who needs them? I have 114 guns in my safe.

    I'm just kidding. I like some cops. A lot of them have stupid power trips though. I know a few that got their asses beat and got joked all the time back in school. Wonder if that has anyting to do w/ thier career choice? hmmmmmm

    Nothin against you CB.

    yeah your right, but not all cops are bad, they don't get the respect they deserve, they do have to deal with alot of crap, they see the worst in everybody everyday, all day.

    Ok......there's lots of debate on either side of the case. I don't want this to turn into a cop bashing thread. I just wanted to share my decision.

    I'll delete this if it turns into cop bashing....

    NO no I am not saying you are.....it was more a general comment from alpha comments. Everyone likes to jump on the band wagon and take small comments and turn them into hug flame wars....and I was just putting the warning out there.

    Cool. Good luck. I just don't like dealing with the "sensitivity" bs. Everyone's married but me, everyone's hyper sensitive about how their wives are gonna deal with me in their cars....had a male officer complain to my supervisor that I made him uncomfortable by reaching through one of the lower buttons of my uniform blouse, under my vest (which had a tshirt under it) to scratch an itch that was making me crazy. SCREW that. Guys can adjust their nuts but I get that crap for scratchng my RIB cage???

    NO thanks. Don't need the bullshit!

    There are better oppurtunities to make much more money in this great country, and money is the reason most of us take shit from others in our trades. In some jobs the shit overpowers the money and thats where you have to draw the line. IMO gl to you.

    Can't you just switch to some thing that would let you ride a desk? Then you could be on-line all day!111
    What are you going to do now? Will it make you as much money as you make now? How will you support your self? Great, now I've got grey hairs worring about you. I'm so co-dependent. *sigh*

    Or the ones that hate could have seen cops abuse their badges, act like they are the law by making it up as they go instead of inforcing it then lying in court to protect their ass after trampling on someones rights, just so they do not appear idiotic and arrogant. Taken from an uncle johns bathroom reader(dont have it but it was a government source), the average IQ of a police officer is 104... 80 is retarted.

    Sorry things didn't work out for you. Politics are everywhere in coporate America though. I imagine it's especially difficult for an attractive woman.

    Does this mean you can post your nudes without fear of losing your job?

    I see your point. Some do have an opinion without actual first hand experiences... just like in the steroid section.

    Big decision....best of luck with it!!!

    I also don't like cops, yet one my closest friends is a cop.....I always say its a shitty job, dangerous and underpaid, you could get killed by a d@mn fool over a speeding ticket.....fvck it-you're better off this way...

    Although I don't like cops in general, whenever someone starts bashing them I say this : "If I didn't smoke pot, do blow, speed in my car or do anything illegal then I'd have no problem with them.You should get mad at the ones who make the laws (politicians) not the ones who enforce them."

    My wife is a copper (and have many friends who are cops down in SoCal) and there is so much PC crap its out of control. My wife shares similar comments such as yours Also, my wife works graves and is solo which i find might leave her vulnerable even tho there is usually backup within a Minute.. But as we all know 1 min can be a lifetime. My wife is bilingual so it gives her some respect but after her 5th year she will move on to do something thats more satifying such as having children

    I don't blame ya on how you feel and have you considered putting in your time and maybe doing a lateral to another dept? Can you do that as a reserve? Good luck on your endeavors.

    Well said, my friend. And that is coming from someone who has experienced that very thing. Not in court, but in the magistrate's office. In court I was smart enough to have a good lawyer.

    And b4 it is said, no, I am not basing my opinion off of one experience.

    Huh? Was this like an internship or something? I wouldn't last a week in ANY free job. Well, unless I was like J-Lo's nipple tweaker or something of that nature.

    I am Active Duty US Navy. I was a reserve police officers. Reserves do not get paid to patrol. They can pull paid details...but for the most part are voluneteers. It's a good way to get your foot in the door and establish a rep for yourself.

    We straight now?
