Walsh, a former tea party congressman from Illinois and now a conservative talk radio host, tweeted in the wake of the Dallas shootings, "3 Dallas Cops killed, 7 wounded. This is now war. Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks. Real America is coming after you."

Karma's a bitch motherfuckers.
So what is the problem with these cops then; they don't screen potential officers for being power hungry or narcissist?It seems a lot of problems can happen when the cop is on a power trip.
'you don't know what those cops see every day'
Quote from: Testy Calibrate on July 18, 2016, 07:42:23 PM'you don't know what those cops see every day'I really hate this stupid ass argument. The vast majority of cops will never even draw their gun and shoot at a suspect in the course of their entire career. The vast majority of cops who die on the job die from accidents, mostly auto. Police isn't even in the top 10 of most dangerous professions. A fucking pilot is more likely to die on the job than a police officer. The average cop is not some beat cop wrestling crack addicts in Camden, NJ and watching horrors unfold before their very eyes on a daily basis. It's especially annoying when people who live in fucking suburbia trot out this line. Yes, they see such horrible things all day long as they're pulling people over for speeding and sitting at a desk doing paperwork! People who work in emergency rooms see horrible shit every day and are probably under a lot more stress than your average fucking cop. They see death with every goddamn shift. I guess that means it's okay for them to flip their shit and abuse innocent people because, hey, you just don't understand how stressful it is, man.
The only caveat I can apply is that cops, like social workers, are seeing the desperate side of humanity much more than the "average" person. But like an ER worker, it comes with the job. If you can't approach the situations dispassionately where appropriate and passionately where needed then you really shouldn't be in the job."The Thin Blue Line" shit just reinforces the misapplication of "To Protect and To Serve"; where the cops are the ones to protect and they should serve themselves first.
that's changing. Their job is getting significantly more dangerous.
