    Wrong...

    ...it needs to be quoted into every thread where some smarmy bugger is looking to get out of the ticket they deserve, but feel they shouldn't have to pay.

    A very good friend of mine read this at my retirement. I was doing okay until he finished and my wife wiped the tears from my cheek.

    "WHEN COPS RETIRE:

    When a good cop leaves the "job" and retires to a "different" life, many people are jealous, some are pleased, and yet others, who may have already retired, wonder. We wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because we already know.

    We know, for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie few experience, it will remain as a longing for those past times. We know in law enforcement life there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the back of the closet. We know even if he throws them away, they will be on him with every step and breath that remains in his life. We also know how the very bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

    These are the burdens of the job: You will still look at people suspiciously; you still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and will always look at the rest of the law enforcement world with a respect for what they do - only grown in a lifetime of knowing. Never think for one moment you are escaping from that life. You are only escaping the "job" and we are merely allowing you to leave "active" duty.

    So what I wish for you is that when you ease into retirement, in your heart you never forget for one moment that "Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called children of God," and you are still a member of the greatest fraternity the world has ever known."

    Thank you for posting that.

    I found this from Paul Harvey:

    "What Are Policemen Made Of? By Paul Harvey

    Don't credit me with the mongrel prose: it has many parents-at least 420,000 of them: Policemen.

    A Policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.

    Gulled statistics wave the fan over the stinkers, underscore instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are "new". What they really mean is that they are exceptional, unusual, not commonplace.

    Buried under the frost is the fact: Less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. That's a better average than you'd find among clergy!

    What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He's a strangely nameless creature who is "sir" to his face and "fuzz" to his back

    He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.

    But...If the policeman is neat, he's conceited; if he's careless, he's a bum. If he's pleasant, he's flirting;if not, he's a grouch.

    He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.

    But...If he hurries, he's careless; if he's deliberate, he's lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.

    The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn't hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being "brutal". If you hit him, he's a coward. If he hits you, he's a bully.

    A policeman must know everything-and not tell. He must know where all the sin is and not partake.

    A policeman must, from a single strand of hair, be able to describe the crime, the weapon and the criminal- and tell you where the criminal is hiding.

    But...If he catches the criminal, he's lucky; if he doesn't, he's a dunce. If he gets promoted, he has political pull; if he doesn't, he's a dullard. The policeman must chase a bum lead to a dead-end, stake out ten nights to tag one witness who saw it happen-but refused to remember.

    The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.

    And, of course, he'd have to be genius....For he will have to feed a family on a policeman's salary."
