The Victorian Poohlice's motto is 'Uphold The Right'. To which I reflect:

1. Uphold the right to frisk motorist's wallets
2. Uphold the right to commit crimes provided you don't break the speed limit in that stolen car
3. Uphold the right to conspire with the TAC to lie, distort statistics, and blame everything on speeding
4. Uphold the right to blame speed even though coronial inquiries find roads and drivers are to blame

I'm sure many others here can think up a few more. Let's keep this as a fun thing - a way to vent our frustrations.

Uphold the right to defect any car, for any reason at any time, regardless of proof. Then make the owner pay to prove it is legal.

Uphold the right to never have to say sorry, we made a mistake, we were in the wrong.

Uphold the right to treat everyone as law breaking criminals if it serves their purpose at the time.

Uphold the right to only actively police the laws that supply the most profit.

I could go on and on............

Yes, I am sensitive about these things, it's not funny and it's not clever. I am venting my frustrations. Other than being killed (obviously) I have had to do all these things.

I have no doubt that you have done these things, one of my best friends is a cop and has done many of these things too. I don't envy him and I dont envy you, they are crappy, thankless jobs. However there is a large amount of police out there who bend the laws to suit themselves and do it in such a way that the public see it as one law for us and one law for them.
Police are there to protect and uphold the law but, when they openly flaunt it, the joe public like myself and many others feel that they are just out to make money off us. Police should lead by example, something that is sadly lacking in many, many cases.
I don't blame you for being sensitive about it (and I know it is not all police, probably just a minority) but as ordinary citizens we too are sensitive about the hypocacy of it all.

Cheers,

so what if police speed?? does that make it safer/better/legal for you to do it. As I have been told many times, we should be worrying about what we are doing not what other people are doing.
The cameras are manned by civilians and placed in areas under TAC and local council consultation. All the police have to do with them is to have the logo and name on the ticket that goes out.
99% of police that aren't the puppets in command hate speed cameras too.

Some police are hypocrites, no argument.

I am disappointed this thread started at all, I thought we were more grown up than this.

I think people here are getting the dutties between the Vic Police and the Vic goverment confused.
How would you feel if you went to work day in day out, and to areast some lowlife for doing something totally irresponsible, to see him/her get out the next day and let loose to commit yet another crime, the judical system, the goverment they all suck,
the Police do a tremendous job and I praise them,but little can be said for the other's I have mentioned above.
