    Default Attn: Police

    Is it more important to serve or to protect?

    Kein Haar, you are the main focus of this investigation. Do you feel that one is over the other or that they might possibly be equal? Or maybe you think your "protecting" is a way of serving the public... Or your "serving" of the public is in order to protect them? I could use a bit of clarification.

    In my opinion, the police are a service, they should answer to the public. But you have more than one time posted a condescending view of the public in your eyes.

    Care to enlighten us?

    All officers are welcomed to chime in as well.

    We've had enough kracker and LHM threads to start a real one.

    Serve, definately. Problem is, people remain unedumacated as to what the limit of my authority is.

    I can't go help you collect some debt from some guy.
    I can't enforce a civil child custody thing.
    I can't make neighbor not be rude.
    I'm not a fireman, I can't just slip outta my shit and shower...so please be selective in why you need me to get especially wet and dirty.
    I'm not some repository for rude teenagers.

    People just need to be careful what they want police to do, cuz a lot of these same whiners (about us not doing anything) have no idea that other people may be calling about THEM; but we're not actually doing anything about it...cuz the complaint is retarded and invalid to criminal law.

    There are very few people I've been able to literally protect. I've tried i.e. "Um...you have car keys, and we're here...so why don't you take advantage of our presence and ability to contain him and get out of the house before he actually beats your ass? I can hook you up with shelter if you need it."

    "No, no...I'll stay here."

    "Ok."

    Responding back to someone who got her ass beat.

    If your daughter isn't wearing her hijab, you can see it and slap her.

    Do you go out of your way to piss off ppl you don't particularly like in order to provoke a reaction that you can use as an excuse to hit them with a wonderful toy from your bat belt?

    Police comes from the Greek Polis.

    Polis means to poke with a sharpened stick.

    That was the anscestor of the London Metropolitan Police tactic of poking people with sharp sticks until they freaked out, at which time they would beat them with heavier wooden rods.

    U.S. policing is a direct descendent of the LMP.

    Due to Mississippi v. Schuckster, the sharpened stick method has been ruled cruel and unusual, so we've moved to blistering sarcasm and mother jokes.

    That's what policing IS, Reese.

    Duh.

    I was going to make a joke about Schuckster having a point, but I'm glad I kept it to myself.

    Just out of curiosity: does tasing a kid for running out onto a sports field fall under protection ('cuz of the threat posed by one teenager to a bevy of hyper-fit athletes)...or was it service?

    The way he went down, it looks like he definitely got served.

    Not complaining, mind you: sports fans deserve every mishap that comes their way, just on principle.

    It's just kind of weird to electrocute a kid just because you're too slow to catch him...

    They didn't "electrocute a kid", they tased him.

    They didn't "tase" him, they prevented him from not being tased.
