  • Have you always had a "good moral compass?"

    Has knowing the difference between right and wrong always been easy to you?

    Do you attribute that to your upbringing when you were kids?

    Respectfully asking, you know how a lot of people think that people become cops because they want to retaliate due to the stuff they endured in school etc. but ...that is not true is it? Why do people think that?

    Thanks

      Do you attribute that to your upbringing when you were kids? I suppose I could.

      Respectfully asking, you know how a lot of people think that people become cops because they want to retaliate due to the stuff they endured in school etc. but ...that is not true is it? Why do people think that?Well, truth behold, I have already arrested several of the punk kids who use to me fun of me... I taught them!.... lol... no, I personally like helping to make a difference, and the cards just laid out for me

      Thanks

        That's great. There are so many rumors about cops. I'm glad there is a place to go get the truth.

        Thanks CG

          I became a cop 1,000 miles away from where I grew up. That said, the answer is still no. Cops become cops for a number of reasons, but I've never heard of a payback thing.

          As to my moral compass, it was agift from my parents on my birthday.

            I wish that I would have been raised like that. Trooper, your a very respectable person, I hope you believe that. Your responses are really genuine and incredible. Nothing like what I used to believe cops were about.

              I have always had a good moral compass, which was also given to me from my family. "Stuff" never happened to me in school, I was a good student and no one picked on me.

              Those who have the opinion you stated in the quotes above probably are the type who WOULD become cops out of anger, and that's a bad thing. A lot of people judge character not on anything they know, but on how they'd react to a situation.

              When I worked dope, all dopers were convinced that a cop just couldn't be around a key of cocaine without dipping in. It was beyond their scope of experience, because that's just what they would do. Tending to pre-judge the actions of others based on what YOU would do isn't necessarily a good thing...either way. A Preacher might think his son would never use drugs, his son might think that ANYONE would use drugs.

                Do you attribute that to your upbringing when you were kids? I was in the same church from age 2 weeks until I was 19. That, plus my parents' upbringing, yes.

                Respectfully asking, you know how a lot of people think that people become cops because they want to retaliate due to the stuff they endured in school etc. but ...that is not true is it? Why do people think that? There are, unfortunately, people who take this job because of the power and authority given. That is the very, very, very small minority of Officers. Most of those people won't make it through the application process.

                Thanks

                  I see what your saying. No offense meant here, but I feel like the teenager that realized their parents aren't as dumb as they thought, when it comes to cops. thanks Gene

                  I believe you that most don't make it through the application process and deal with what the rookie on the movie "training day," had to experience, to blow things out of proportion here.

                  I can't believe I was so damn gullable to believe so much non-sense about cops. Thanks pf

                    Do you attribute that to your upbringing when you were kids?Absolutely, along with some good teachers, heroes to look up to, and later on some good sergeants.

Why do people think that? I didn't endure much, and I'm not working the area I went to school in.

                    I miss you, Dave.

                      Yes, I've always had an easy time discerning right and wrong and taking responsibility. I've done some illegal things and morally wrong things, of course, but I've never been in any trouble to speak of.

                      I think my upbringing is a combination of living in a great community, parents, television (believe it or not), and my own thinking styles.

                      There are cops that take the job because they were picked on a lot. I know a couple. I think a lot of people think that, or say it even if they're not thinking it, because they're just looking for a way to get one over on the cops. They're trying to create an image better than the cop's. Make sense?
