They definitely do put their life in danger for other people and i respect that a lot. But i also think a lot of police officers look down on everyone else, and i think most of them are in the field because they get a badge that basically tells them they are more important than everyone else. Some might be in the business to protect others, but the police department is generally full of arrogant pricks.It's always funny to me how many people "hate" police officers, but whenever people are in the slightest bit of danger the very first person they call or would call is the police. People depend on the police more than anybody else including their own friends and family to save them.
Obviously there are some police officers that are jerks, but there's jerks in every line of work.
A lot of police officers get killed in the city I live in.. two just got killed this past Tuesday. I will always have admiration for *most* of them. I think for them to wake up everyday and potentially put their life at risk is very selfless. If I never lived in the city, but lived in the country or suburbs where crime is considerably lower I might not have that same admiration for them. I still wouldn't hate them though.
