I'm a cop. I work for a small department in Alabama. Pros: Yeah, I get to drive fast and shoot people, ha ha. No, really what I love is that 90% of the time we deal with pure bullshit. 10% of it is balls to the wall, never knowing what's around the corner. Just tonight was an attempted suicide, but shot a hole in the roof instead. Idiot. Cons: The politics suck, and people hate cops. We deals with the same retards weekly. It gets old, and burn out is too common. As the paramedic said, you do get jaded to people. Sometimes I wish I could go back to the time I didnt know people were animals, everything was just rosey and bad things were just things you read about news articles. Wonder why most cops are assholes? Do you really need to ask?
