Websight Idea

So, while peeing this morning i got an epifiny.

Rate your officer dot com.

I duno if there is a rate your officer sight.
But the idea behind the sight is, you go there and rate the police officer you delt with. List reasons why you were pulled over or what not and with a list of so many questions 1-10 scale you rate your officer.

I think its a kinda neat idea. People might put some really crapy stuff on there if they are spitefull, but these are the defenders of teh people, and they are public servents. They are technically below us, but around to keep us from destroying others properties and voilateing their rights (not some of the stuff they give you tickets for now)

Sounds like a good idea.

Does this mean you get pulled over on a regular basis?

sgtrwg is starting off with a positive reputation.
I have a question,"They are technically below us" what is this supposed to mean?
Are you saying that police officers are second class citizens?
I would think that the second class and lower types are the ones that are not smart enough to respect others property or rights and ascribe to "if it feels good do it" no matter what or who it might hurt.

You may have an officer living right next door, and not even know it. For that matter - you may have a terrorist right next door and not know.

Peace Officers are those who have invested a lot of themselves in an occupation that is thankless in many cases, the only thing that keeps our laws from being totally ignored, harmful to themselves since it one of the highest risk occupations on earth, and are plain ordinary people in the first place.

Never forget that I stand on record right here and say this -

YOU COULD NOT WANT for a better example of an outright hero than a Police Officer.

The job itself erodes some, and some don't deserve the job if they can not be objective and fair. But by far - those who serve in that capacity are the finest people you may ever know. You should know one, and learn from it if you can.

They who do that for an occupation are made of clay just like the rest of us, and chose to become something to protect us from our own negative natures. THAT is not an easy thing to do

Greywolf has it right.... What other person would stand in harms way to protect you and your property! I have served in the Military Police as a reservist and some of the stories the others had from the large cities (as reguar police officers) would curl your hair. There are so many officers serving who do NOT want their names divulged because they are undercover or special ops it would serve no good service to rate them.

I am a veteran, and spending this weekend getting my truck back together so I can go back to work. Half of basic just doesn't cover everything.

I dropped in here on a break from the cramped little shop I'm working in

Hahaha.
I love how people take things out of context. but i'm sure it would happen.

Police officers are not second class citizens. Everyone is equal.
However the people are supposto be the Higest power in our republic. Government works for the people. We pay the police to protect us.

But some police are just plain jerks and rude, or dont do their job. Lazy bums who just sit in their car all day.

Sgt Wonderfull is correct. Police officers are nothing compared to military people who put their life on the line. They keep our country safe. Police just make sure the morons stay in line.

It was just an idea.
However, everyone who said it would be a flame war is correct. There is just to much variables for it. This is what all my other sources have said.

anyways. Enough of this topic. =)

1. Thank you for that.....Can I be your equal?

2. I suppose that jerks, rude people, those who don't do their jobs, and lazy bums can be found in all jobs and professions.

3. I'm not sure that this is what Sgt Wonderful said, but some of us served in the military AND became police officers afterwards---and some departments are short-staffed because some of their members got called up (multiple times) to go to Iraq and Afghanistan---so they are working the streets for a living AND getting shot at overseas when Uncle Sam calls up......I hope THEY get a little respect anyways......

Peace

As I recall from Marine Corps boot camp many many years ago there are always that 5% that ruins it for everyone else and it appears to me that you have had occasion to meet some of the 5%ers.

It is truly unfortunate that such a small number of individuals are able to cause people to form opinions of everyone in a profession because of how they act. I will tell you that the 30 years that I spent in law-enforcement along with my time in the Marine Corps I have come to realize that people should be judged on their personal actions and not lumped into some group.

So enough of all of this stuff and back to Ford Trucks.

Happy Birthday to all you Marines out there and Happy Veterans Day!!!!!!
