call me old fashioned, but smetimes i think that jail is too good for some people. maybe they ought to pay the ultimate price. IMHO, jail should be punishment FIRST, rehabilitation SECOND. mudrer should be punished completely. not knowing the facts of the case, i iwll leave that one there, but if these clowns are guilty of murder, then they should fry.
And yes, take the uniform off and there is actually a real person inside, and yes they to have families.
too true. sure we all get pissed off at copping a traffic fine, but who are the first people you call when there is someone in your house? where do you go if you get your car nicked? i have met a few really great cops. sure, some are pricks. and the nature of the job is such that you will find a few as coppers, but show me a job where there arent pricks. hell, i work for a bank and am privvy to the reasoning behind some of the unpopular decisions, so i know plenty of pricks. but even pricks have families. kids that arent going to see dad tonight or ever again. wives that now have to survive on the paltry compensation that is paid to widows, and mothers and fathers who have lost a son or daughter.
i had occasion to deal with a copper earlier this year regarding a fatal accident i saw. it was this guys job to investigate what happened. this guy really cared about the victim and why the accident occured.
xa-coupe. i sincerely hope you can feel some sort of closure on this affair. i am glad it is nearly over.
