But with thinking like that, I would say we should be far more worried about the Federal Government, the Military and Wall Street, than the cops. The cops are just the foot soldiers. They don't make decisions. They just follow orders.
I mean, I get it, what would you do? You just busted some murderer and are sweeping his house. There is a brick of cash that you bump into. This could feed your family for a few years, and this scum bag murderer wont miss it, he is going to jail. It would just go to lockup anyway....
Do you stuff it down your pants, or do you turn it in... Regular people have to make those choices every day. Sometimes they probably make the wrong call. But sometimes, a Tuesday at work means they will never see their family again. They report to that domestic violence call, and the crazy drunk Husband fires shots while they are still in the yard....
I don't trust ANYONE really. I just think cops are no worse than anyone else. We have to give SOMEONE the authority to govern our people, unless you want to do it. Good luck without a gun and a badge.

We f'ed up by engaging in a non-conventional war with an enemy who wears no uniform. What we should have done was pit them even more against themselves, and then swooped in to eradicate the mess leftover.
That's hundreds of years of bad blood and sectarian and religious-based conflict going on over there. Some of them countries needed a dictator to keep the animals in line. They are horrible people who fantasize of a theocracy that would never survive, much less prosper.
Muslims suck. They make the commies and the Germans look sane.There's always got to be somebody creating strife in the world.
Yeah, yeah some cool guys can act like America is this big bad entity. And yeah, I have problems with our laws and elected officials, but in the scheme of it all America is a good place with leaders who aren't completely devoid of a sense of morality.
We do a lot of good in the world. We feed people, and we give financial aid to the freakin world. We are not the great Satan. And no matter what conspiracy theories people want to assign to each American military excursion, at the heart of it, our hearts were in the right place. We tried to help people
Yes, capitalism is flawed, but it's the best thing going. People are people, and they are going to exploit sh!t. But for all of these idealogues out there who think they can find a better way.....well it's kind of hard to manage and keep some semblance of order for a large society.
We didn't do sh!t to Muslims - no alterior motives - until they attacked us. The War on Terror isn't some conspiracy to take away American liberties. Yeah, Haliburton profited and stuff, but that's just the powerful extracting some gravy from the situation. Those types are going to do what they do.
Behind all of America's interventions in the world, the basic reason is humanitarian.
And I'd love to hear how anyone on here as been personally affected by all these rights we have lost since The War on Terror began. That's all BS.

Oh, and the dudes who complain aboot cops on here, would probably be the first ones to call them when they hear a bump in the night.
I love it how some dudes on here are so terrorized by the police. Most dudes on here probably have never even had a speeding ticket.
I used to do things where I was at constant risk for police involvement. I was lucky and didn't have too much interaction with them. But in reality, most were pretty cool.
The Outer Banks cops are the worst pieces of dung around. LBI cops are freakin pseudo-tough guys who wouldn't last a day in a real hood. Philly cops are cool as hell.
See alot of y'all get intimidated ( and that's understandable) by when the cops bark loudly and try and do things they aren't really allowed to. You just can't let them play that again, but that comes with experience with them. Plus, people on here, myself included, haven't really done anything that's really serious. So, cops really aren't that big of an issue.....well, they shouldn't be.

Here's a little microcosm of cops (correctional officers) that I found while in the county jail:
One-third of them are cool. They treat you like a human beings.
One-third of them are robots. It's just a job to them. They have no personal involvement or prejudices in the whole thing. They just put on their uniform and show up for 8 hours. Yeah, a lot of them tend to be in bad moods but it's nothing personal.
The other third are complete douche bags, who get their jollies hassling people and showing off their "power." Some of them live for that sh!t. And they are actually more pathetic then the inmates, as that's what motivates them to wake up in the morning. They are pieces of garbage. Yeah, F You Johnson in the ACJF. They are sad, sad, people.

im not scared of terrorists at all.the videos they show u on fox news,cnn,etc looks real crazy and scary,but tell me how they are going to get to America.u cant even take a toothbrush on a plane,but somehow mohammad and the towel fukhead bunch can make it through with shoebombs or boxcutters or whatever.its a huge waste of money if u ask me.too many agencies to deal with.
as far as humanitarian aid goes,well ummmm il wait for it.tell me what country we ever went to to actually help the people out.i can tell u it wasn't Iraq,wasnt Afghanistan,wasnt Lebanon,wasnt panama.
do u know,this is a true story btw,we don't even try to hide out.i don't remember what the whole ordeal was about in Beirut,but we were trying to take out some terror kingpin,so we put out contracts,and we actually blew up a car bomb,killed over 70 people,mostly women and children,and it turned out the person we tried to blow up was actually clean,not a terrorist but a well respected dr or some shyt in the community.either way tho we missed the target,so the innocent terror guy lived by over 70 women and children perished.
operation "just cause" we can lol,the invasion of panama.we actually sent in delta force,this was actually on the ahc the other day,which is the new military channel,to rescue a covert spy we had in the country,we literally broke this mothafuka out of prison!!!!how fukin illegal and gangster is that?like what if al keda comes down to prison in florida or some shyt,blows the shyt up and releases a bunch of terrorists?the whole thing was about noreiga seizing bush sr money in Panamanian banks,drug money at that.dont believe me lol,another true story America doesn't even try to hide it.
im not really a conspiracy person,but im not retarded either and anyone with a brain,2 working eyes,and willing to read can find out all this shyt plus more.i don't even like talking about this crap because its so old,its like talking about the wild thornberrys or something.
with the humanitarian aid bs,why wouldn't we go save Africa in Liberia and sierra leone?u think isis and al queda is bad,il take them anyday over some African rebels.u vote we chop ur hand off,we chop ur arm off just for the fun of it.now those people seriously needed humanitarian aid,but no well pass lets go to Iraq,they have oil!!

How can I slide on, World B? Hasn't been anything over a foot-and-a-half in almost two weeks. Had a slight hope for it to be pushing waist-high today, but was foiled once again.
And you guys who said last summer was flat........how do you like me now? Plus, my sandbars aren't doing their thing like they did the past three summers, so I'm not even getting that extra wedge this summer.
This fall will be pretty good. This winter will be so-so. You heard it here first. This summer is going to be FLAT. You'll be happy to see anything over two foot this July.

co's now lol,some are cool some are some real hardasssssis.like I had a co that used to bring me the paper everyday when he was done,even brought in some magazines for me.the real hardcore ppl doing time and cool with the co's.the cos bring in ciggs,liquor,drugs,etc.
now u cross a co,and expect a ride to the hospital via helicopter.i havnt witnessed it personally but heard many tales from my bros that did time.once a co pushes that button u are done for.no need to try to fight a co,u are in their house and they will beat u half to death.another co I heard about,some guy named pops,hes an oldhead ,master freemason,and the lt,sgt,all the high rankers bow down to this angry oldman.another guy I heard about don't recall his name,but he wanted complete silence during his shift.if u sneezed he would scream at the top of his lungs,shut the fuk up!!!!I made the mistake of swinging off an a co,luckily it was county and not prison,worst beating I ever had in my life.my head was slammed to the floor instantly splitting my head wide open on a dirty jail floor,and the worst choked out I ever been.i remember trying to scream at the top of my lungs "I cant breathe!!!!!" nothing came out.thats why I know when someone screams they cant breathe,bullshyt.I know..its a surreal feeling because u cant fight it and u start to let go after a minute,plus with all the adrenaline ur burning that oxygen way faster.nothing worse than being completely suffocated

Cep, we feed and hand out money to the entire world. We are always there when natural disasters hit. We try, even at the expense of our own citizens who have it just as bad as many third world residents.
When you really look at things, in the entire scope, we are really a nice country.
I don't know of any examples where we caused a civil war in another country in order to rape them afterwards.
Germany made no attempt to entice Russia into a civil war and they had a scenario to do so.....maybe - The whole communist vs capitalist thing. But they had no intention of doing so. That would have called for patience on the part of Germany and theys was into the Lightning War.
Yes we did go to help other countries. We tried to keep Korea free of communist/Chinese take over. Same thing in Vietnam. Both situations we tried to help the southern portions of each country from being taken over by communists.
No matter what reason were prominent in doing so, we did try and free the Iraqi people from a dictator. We helped Kuwait from being taken over by Iraq. I could keep going on. No matter what, at the very basis of it all, all our military excursions could be tied to doing "the right thing" without Spike Lee's approval. Yes, there were other alterior motives and people capitalized on the scenarios for their own profit, but.........oh well what can you do?
Dude, we never just go in and take over for bad reasons. Shoot, we haven't even won a war in ages.
And in our latest military exploits we are way tooooo cautious aboot collateral damage. That's why we never win anymore.
Hey when we are depended on to be the world's policeman and everybody counts on us for aid in times of crisis we get a certain privilege to do what we need to do.

And all of our recent wars are the same. It's a "noble idea", jam packed with about 80% of other agendas, packaged as a war for freedom so that the tax payers don't flinch, and we mark our troops in to do good, meanwhile, behind closed doors, we roll out any political agendas that may favor our government and we get to work... Nothing wrong with it really. It's called international politics. The Haliburton stuff was over the top. Everything was over the top in those days. The world is a war for profit world. Has been for many years. If the Iraq situation was handled better, a lot of honest, american companies could have done very well over there, all while helping the Iraqi people...
I have said, from day one, we never should have taken Saddam out of power. He was a necessity. Or someone like him. Just like the Cartel leaders in Mexico. Without someone running checks and balances, things only get worse. Sometimes the best way to keep an entire country, split in 3 from killing each other, is making examples of them. You try and kill, you will be killed. It was working for him.
