Why do people hate the police?
I don't get it. Everyone claims police brutality. Yes, sometimes officers abuse their powers, but that shouldn't reflect all police. Without the police, society would be in ruins. As much as people say they hate them, they really know they couldn't live without them. So why are they so hated? These people are heroes risking their lives everyday (granted not all risk their lives, or do their job properly) but on a whole they are HEROES. They are the ones you call when your in danger. The go head first into dangerous situations thinking about societies safety, not their own. But still we hate them. We are hypocrytes! Sure when we get pulled over for speeding we say "I don't deserve this, police have nothing better to do than give me a ticket!", but when you see someone driving dangerously fast down the road you say "The police need to do their job and stop people from driving so fast". Its only when they uphold laws against YOU that you hate them, but why?

First of all, I don't hate all police officers. Second, I could live without them, and I live in Puerto Rico, so I can imagine how bad things could be without them. Third, society would not be in ruins without them. Fourth, they don't go head first into dangerous situations without any regards for their own safety. Fifth, I don't say that they should be doing their job as someone speeds by me. Sixth, I hate them when they harass and abuse me, not when they enforce the law on me.

Edit: 6 thumbs down...

Why do people hate me so much? I'm only standing up for myself by not letting this idiot that calls himself Dave put words in my mouth. He's a liar. Also, I speak the truth, which you people can't handle!

When I see red and blue lights in my rear view mirror, then pull over, I know they're not stopping me to tell me that I was driving very good and they are very proud of me for doing so. To the contrary, after all is said and done, money will be coming out of my pocket. In the mean time, they either can't, or won't, do anything about the stereo that was stolen from my car.
In this town, the safest place to be is in the donut shop. The only problem is, if your car were broken into in the parking lot of the donut shop, the cops would be too lazy to get up from their table, or angry that the coffee may get cold.
They are an absolute waste of taxpayer's money.

It just like you said, us human are hypocrytical. A lot hate the police because they are only speeding a little and get pull over, but when it they are in danger, yeah the first person they will call is the police. Honestly, some policemen are doing a good job, but many other are not.

Reductio ad Absurdum
I know they are necessary, but it doesn't mean I have to like them. They give ticky tac tickets all the time to meet their freakin' quotas. I haven't had a ticket in 7 years, but I am always on the lookout because I speed a lot. I know a guy who got a ticket for doing 58 in a 55. I mean cmon.

I never was able to grasp this concept either.
I suppose when it "fits" our needs, we like them, depend on them, but when it is not "convienient" when we get called out for our OWN actions is when they are disliked...... So now, wonder why they have an "attitude"!!!!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

People think that the police should always protect them from any danger but once they do something wrong where the police needs to respond or get a ticket of some sort, they hate the cops. It's pretty dumb to think like that. When you break the law, you deserve to get in trouble.

because people dont like to pay fines, but they do like to whine. i dont like getting pulled over, i dont hate cops though. sometimes the tickets suck (i got $115 littering fine for flicking a cigarette out of my window, and that made me hate THAT cop) but generally i think we respect their authority and the job they have to do. just sucks when you feel like you are getting picked on.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You think police are hated? Try security officers! They get far more hatred than the police, but are just as necessary and paid less to put up with it all.

That said, I think that a big reason that police are hated has to do with a perception of the power of peace officers that non peace officers do not believe that they themselves have. since people generally fear those with authority, and the police departments are usually rather closed about how they do their jobs, you get a distrust combined with fear to form a hatred.

It's because we live in a hypocritical and ignorant world. No one likes the police when they've been caught doing wrong, then it's the "don't they have real criminals to catch" but who are the first people they call when they are in trouble or their precious world is slightly inconvenienced? That's right, the police and just like every other profession, we have people acting badly and that reflects on all of us but just remember that the next time or the first time you need us to save you. Real officers don't care about being hero's, if I wanted to be a hero and loved and celebrated, I would have been a firemen but instead I chose to protect people that will most likely trash me after I leave because they were acting like a four year old and got treated like one.

it's more like a saying than anything, like i hate veggies but when a person really actually likes some veggies.My aunt watched cops every morning and i saw them do some really stupid things on that show,but i don't envy any decent cop having a tough/dangerous job like that.i know some cops are crooked as well that will arrest people for a small amount of weed when i saw some buying it from some neighbors i had,that's also being a hypocrite --no offense,and standing near that weed bonfire in the news isn't showing any hatred for weed either.-sorry-you asked, i said...also a couple of them were beating on my thin/weak brother one time and he wasn't wanted like they claimed him to be...my mother who was dying with cancerous brain tumor had to pull them off him and scream at them to quit so they wouldn't kill him

the question really depends on where you live, in some places its due to oppression, but hear in the Uk its pure childishness.

I've seen far too many abuse their power.

One of my uncles was shot (14 times) and killed. The circumstances were very questionable, and he was back on the job in no time.

I witnessed one taking a piss in a public park, and less than a week later I got a 200 dollar ticket for swinging after park hours.

EDIT: I don't hate the police, though. I know they're completely necessary and not all bad. I'm just rather suspicious of them.

It's like a child angry at their parents because they're in trouble.

People love them when they need help.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Because most people dont respect them until S*** hits the fan, then they call crying for the police. Most of the people who hate cops are those who do criminal acts or have been caught by the police in the past.

One who does nothing wrong has nothing to worry about. I've been stopped by the cops before and scared out of my mind, but I knew that I wasnt in any real trouble but it is still nerve racking sometime to see that spotlight shine on your car or blue lights light up.

Immaturity not yet outgrown, a resentment of authority, perhaps with overtones of suppressed anger against past abuse at the hands of an other(s)

I do not hate the police. I have great respect for them. I have never come upon a "bad" cop. As a matter of fact in the early 80's my home caught on fire. a passing by officer is the one who saw the smoke and called 911. if it was not for him..who knows what would have happened. a few years ago a guy in my church lost his younger brother. Adam was serving papers and was killed. i have gotten a ticket before and while i was mad, i knew i deserved it. People who hate them tend to be the ones who break the law.

Munya Says: DUH!
I don't. I think they do a great job, and if I've been going 70 in a 55 zone and I get a ticket, I usually tell them how they missed me going 120 in the 55 about 30 miles back (it always gets a laugh!)!

they do a great job--the "thin blue line" is really the only thing between us and the maniacs out there.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Typically the only people who hate us are either criminals or wannabe criminals (ie minor violators) who instead of taking responsbility for their actions want to blame the messenger.

Most citizens either don't have any interactions with the police or have good relationships with their cops. Its only the repeat criminal scum who have an issue.

In my city we have an 85% approval rating...however if you read the letters page of the local rag you would think everyone hates us.
