    I guess I have a different take on it. Sure there are some nut cases, & peopel who don't like the responses or try to rationalize their bad behavior,etc., etc. But the fact is most people have little if any contact with law enforcement or the judicial system until it's too late. That coupled with the fact the media presents such wild, ficticious images of LE & even the "reality" shows like "Cops" basically glorifies bad policing by friends of the shift/squad supervisor, why wouldn't the aveage civilian have questions. I'm not talking about the the usual "opencarry.org" loonies that like to bait & argue---I'm talking about the guy that really doesn't see the logic of DUI roadblocks or never thought about why officers utilize discretion instead of being a paper-pushing robot. These people are entitled & occassionally ask legitimate questions that should've been answered by their local officers at the time of their particular "problem".
    Now if you came from a "cop family" you probably grew up already knowing alot of what's asked. But if you're like me, who only had friends whose Father's were in LE & prior to my career & the Internet had to seek them out & ask questions this Site can be a good tool. For the LEOs here--think back before you came into LE & some of the "weird" pre-conceived ideas you had or what you didn't even know or think of & maybe cut some of these people some slack. If you don't like the question, don't answer it. Belittleing them or being sarcastic only re-affirms the idea they may have. You only need to be 2% smarter than what you're dealing with- and in some cases THAT really isn't hard.

      Great thoughts, and very true. OTH, the OP asks a seemingly valid question, the forum makes an honest effort to answer the question truthfully, even tactfully. The OP is dissatisfied, and rags on an individual Officer, or the forum in general. When that happens, quite a few of us, including me, fire back. Justifiably so, IMHO.
