    Cops on the Take

    COPS ON THE TAKE.....
    First he takes... the oath.
    Now look at what else he takes:
    He takes... it in stride when people call him Pig.
    He takes... his lousy paycheck realizing he'll never be rich.
    He takes... a second job sometimes to make ends meet and support his family.
    He takes... time to stop and talk to children.
    He takes... your verbal abuse while giving you a ticket you really deserved.
    He takes... on creeps you would be afraid to even look at.
    He takes... time away from his family to keep you safe.
    He takes... your injured child to the hospital.
    He takes... the graveyard shift without complaint because it's his turn.
    He takes... his life into his hands daily.
    He takes... you home when your car breaks down.
    He takes... time to explain why both of your headlights have to work.
    He takes... the job no one else wants - telling you a loved one has died.
    He takes... criminals to jail.
    He takes... in sights that would make you cry.
    Sometimes he cries too, but he takes it anyway because someone has to.
    He takes... memories to bed each night that you couldn't bear for even one day.
    He takes... time to explain to his family why he can't make the ball game his child is in and why he has to work on the holiday when other parents are off.
    Sometimes... he takes a bullet.
    And yes, occasionally... he may take a free cup of coffee.
    If he is lucky... he takes retirement.
    Then one day he pays for all he has taken... and hopefully... God takes him.

    just sent this up the chain


    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
    Ben

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    Very well said.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
