    I will admit it, I don't care for LEOs precisely for the reason this man describes. But I aint trying to argue good bad or indifferent on MY perception that's really not my point.

    How do YOU guys feel about the message this guy puts out there? I agree with it myself........

    He makes some good points and fails on others.

    Timothy McVeigh was stopped for a minor traffic violation. For this guy to say let the little stuff slide is shameful. I make about 10-15 traffic stops a night. I usually write about 2-3 tickets a night. I as well as most cops have made numerous arrests off of small stops ie, warrants, drugs, suspended dl's.

    I know most people on the streets aren't criminals. Some people just suck at interpersonal skills-which is a huge hurdle if your a cop. As much as it annoys the public, it annoys us cops that have people skills even more. It sucks arriving on a call and having to deescalate the situation another officer caused.

    I'll end with saying all cops aren't cut from the same thread. Some are better then others; as with all people.

    I think what he is really saying, reading between the line of course, is that all cops should drive Tacomas!!
