I asked a Policeman one day what was the stupidest statements he had ever heard…
This was his answer..
1.”Do you know how fast you were going”
2.”How much time have you done?”
3. “why do you guys always pick on me”..
And my favorite
“I was going to bring the car back to them… Someday!!”
Understand, our police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. They’ve got a tough job to do to maintain public safety and hold accountable those who break the law.
– Barack Obama
The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.
– Robert Peel
Policemen so cherish their status as keepers of the peace and protectors of the public that they have occasionally been known to beat to death those citizens or groups who question that status.
– David Mamet
The duties of an officer are the safety, honor, and welfare of your country first; the honor, welfare, and comfort of the men in your command second; and the officer’s own ease, comfort, and safety last.
– George S. Patton
