Do people nowadays, have absolutely no respect for Law Enforcement Officers?
I know there are people out there who do respect Police Officers, then there's those who don't. It pisses me off, I mean, its bad enough that their job is dangerous, but they have to deal with bad a** people who always complain. I mean, just put yourself in their shoes, I know I CAN"T last even ten minutes doing their job. I know there are bad cops, BUT, there are a heck lot of good ones. If any law enforcement officer read this post, God bless you, and thank you.

Tell that to Rodney King. That Air Force Soldier that got shot while complying to his orders & the Three dead wifes of that police Sgt. in Ohio as well as the child who is motherless in Ohio as well.

To all law enforcement type out there, you want respect you have to earn it, by having self respect. If you have that you will probably retire a very old man. You want to act like your the man, and show no respect, you will probably end up in a pine box. Your 60 to 120 days of training doesn't mean s*** to law abiding citizens who are tired of your cr**.

Just because you have a few of you getting caught, that doen't even bring to light the millions that haven't.

amercan cops are rude, self centered and cocky they have no respect for people from other parts of the world my friend and I were in new york city and they acted like a bunch of asses when we went down the wrong way street. they could not even get a permit to drive in England because our police are polite and courteous, so glad to be out of the states.

There are a lot of people on here that have nothing better to do with their time but bash the police. BUT... If you say one thing that upsets them (the bashers) they will report you in a heartbeat! I would love for the useless people to be a cop for one day... they would definitely be singing a different tune, after they stop crying to their mommies.

I respect law enforcement officers, and have several of them as friends.

There are some people in law enforcement who are not worthy of respect, unfortunately, but I believe they are a very small minority of a fairly large community.

Like you, I wouldn't want the job.

It's a thankless job. We have to make split second decisions then have untrained politicans decide if our actions are appropriate or not. Most people who don't like cops ironically are people who want to do as they please yet seem to have no trouble dialing that 911 speed dial. We don't have to earn your respect! We represent YOU our job is to enforce the laws YOU voted on to make your community a safer place to live. It isn't a popularity contest for all those posting negative comments. I got into L.E to help people and put people who think they can do as they please in front of a judge because regular law abiding citizens and good people count on us. Those who appreciate us, thank you. Those who don't, don't worry, we will still come when you call for help.

As someone who does not give law enforcement the benefit of the doubt, nor do I commit crime, I can tell you that it is not the officers themselves that I do not respect or trust. It's the people they work for. If we were supposed to trust agents of the government why does the Constitution place so many limits on them?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

events in our time line has given leos a bad rap. some are good some are bad as long as you don't break any laws they shouldn't be in your face. and if you are harrased by one you have the same freedom to press charges just like he or she can.

They're doing what they're being paid to do (if that) so why do they deserve my respect any more than the next guy just because the job that they voluntarily chose is more dangerous than some others?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Thank you!

When people see cops, they're usually in pretty bad moods because the cops are involved in the first place... Hardly anyone sees police when they're not in trouble!

Thank goodness for Community Policing, which will hopefully help to change that!

I want to respect them, I really do. But so far in my interactions with them they really haven't earned it. It's true what people are saying, if you've had no run-ins with the police then you have no reason to dislike them. To me though, it really seems as if a great deal of them simply antagonize decent people.

To be fair, it's not all their fault. They are pressured to give out so many tickets. Many of their policies are dictated by the ridiculous war on drugs that this country has attempted to wage. But when you sit at the bottom of an empty hill with a speed gun or randomly pat someone down because they smell like marijuana, who are you protecting?

I hope someday I meet cops that take their job seriously and who are realists. Cops who use reason and discussion as much as arrests and fines. Cops who assume that most people are good, not criminals. If that happens, I'll respect police officers as much as I respect anyone.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

The ones who do not respect the law enforcement officials are most generally criminals or have been in trouble with the law such a speeding tickets or tickets for other offenses that they didn't think they deserved.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

usually the people that don't like cops are people who break the law and get caught, or who know people that have been caught. i love cops and also appreciate them!

don't worry, the cops don't give a crap who likes them and who doesn't.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

well people who usually don't like cops are people who have has run ins with the law so for some reason they were breaking the law abiding people usually have no face to face contact with police there fore those people have nothing negative to say about them so it varies but reality cops don't really care if criminal like them or not police officers are their to do their job regardless weather they make everyone happy or not

I don't because the ones in my town do absolutely nothing at all aside from sitting outside the local convenience store eating and handing out speeding tickets. If they were't 75% pompous douchebags who failed in the military or are out to pay back the world for the beatings they got daily in high school then they might get some respect. There are good cops out there who do good jobs and are concerned with important things. There are far more cops out there who get a little too excited about getting that next law breaking jaywalker.

I know, I deal with the public every day, most are ok. But I really hate stoners, they have no brains left. I have a dozen or so police and homeland security officers that come in all the time, and they are the best people. I don't know how they do it, take all that abuse and still be nice to everyone. Some people are just pissed of at the world I guess and take it out on the police. I am a ham radio operator and have worked with lots of law enforcement people with emergency services as a radio specialist, in some hairy places under crap conditions. I have never seen a policeman or firefighter not jump in to save someone under the worst of conditions.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

people nowadays have absolutely no respect for ANYONE anymore. in the next few years i plan on being an officer and if it comes up in conversation some people actually put down the police force and its officers to me. more than likely some time in those peoples lives, a police officer will save thier asses, and more than likely they'll still put them down. it's shame.

Cops are just thugs with shiny badges and legal guns. They breed the 'us against them mentality.' If there are a lot of good ones they are hiding in the corners.
