In general, I don't like their shoes. You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes.
I have two close neighbours who are coppers, one is just a really nice bloke, firearms officer, salt of the earth.
The other is a motorcycle traffic cop and sometimes works motorcycle security detail in when there's a dignitary that needs outriders or when civil unrest occurs. He enjoys a scrap and likes nicking people.
Takes all sorts.
Anyone seen 'Filth'? Not as good as 'Trainspotting', but better than 'Ecstacy' - provides an interesting view on police life, true or not.
Where I live we used to get a really rough time from traffic cops. Apparently it was the place all the 'in training' officers came to do traffic duty. We used to get pulled over all the time, usually for driving too fast. Where are they now? I haven't been pulled over in years. I miss it, and I'm pretty certain they miss a ton of criminals.
