Think about the type of person you have to be to become a cop. You want to make a career out of getting people into trouble. I'm sorry, but those are not the types of people I like to associate with.

Are cops necessary for society to function? Absolutely. But they're supposed to be here to protect and serve. Not to harrass and generate revenue for the city.
As a criminology student and someone who briefly thought of going into law enforcement simply because it's great wages, I disagree completely. There are a lot of cops who suck. But there are a lot of cops who are great guys. Think about how many people are getting speeding tickets from cameras now. People complain about it all the time. Sometimes discretion sucks, but when it comes to a lot of things, it is extremely important.

If you actually look at what a cop does, they arrest someone about 6 times a month (I believe, don't quote me on that exact number, it's been a year since I was taking the course and I've always been a lazy student). The rest of the time they are doing things like directing traffic, domestic disputes, etc. Do a ride along sometime. Unless you happen to get an asshole (I'd say probably 1/5th of cops are indeed asshole) you'll end up not really doing too many things law-related.

Police work is just so goddamn sensationalized because of Cops. It's disgusting.

He sure is. I've dealt with the fraternity of police officers my entire life, so I have plenty of firsthand experience with them and have been on my fair share of ride alongs growing up. Sure, a lot of them are great guys. But the nature of the job creates an "us against the world" mentality. I know I'm making a sweeping generalization, but most officers don't trust non-officers and carry a sense of moral superiority. Remember, these are men and women that are trained to observe, to lie, to extract information, to find ways to get you to **** yourself.

On the six arrests a month figure...there are so many variables that go into that number that it doesn't really mean anything. It can vary depending on a multitude of things: what beat the cop works in his city, how much crime actually exists in the city, what type of assignments he's on, whether he's a patrol officer, a traffic officer, a detective, etc.

The punk police finding his killers ain't bringing him back. Good job to them finding his killers, they did something right.

Obviously. Hell, the difference in policing would be huge when you compare LA to Winnipeg, where I'm from. Obviously. I can't comment on LA cops, only on the police / police in training / classmates I know. And the majority of them are people who are in/getting into policing because they want to help people. There are the d-bags who just want to mess with people, but I would never go so far as to say they are in the majority.
