I am someone who has given up my first class seat to a solider and taken
theirs. I don't want to expect an atta boy because I have been in their
shoes coming home from deployment and stuck in a middle seat after a
freedom flight. I feel the same about the cops. One of my best friend was
a Marine than cop for a large city. I was and am proud of him for his
service and his conduct when he had justification to use his weapon instead
he used his feet to catch suspects.
You are an ignorant fool if you think cops are out to get you. They would
rather go home with an uneventful shift and be with their family.
