    Thumbs up Policemen are Just Human Beings

    Policemen are Just Human Beings

    Policemen, believe it or not, ARE human. They come in both sexes, but mostly
    male. They also come in various sizes. This sometimes depends on whether
    you are looking for one or trying to hide something. However, they are
    mostly big.

    Policemen are found everywhere, on land, on sea, in the air, on horses, and
    sometimes in your hair. In spite of the fact that you can't find one when
    you want one, they are usually there when it counts most! The best way to
    get one is to pick up the nearest phone.

    Policemen deliver lectures, babies, and bad news. They are required to have
    the wisdom of Solomon, the disposition of a lamb and muscles of steel, and
    are often accused of having a heart to match. He is the one who rings the
    doorbell, swallows hard and announces the passing of a loved one, then
    spends the rest of the day wondering why he took such a crummy job.

    Policemen on television are oafs who couldn't find a bull fiddle inside a
    telephone booth. In real life he is expected to find a little blond boy,
    "about so high" in a crowd of a half million people. In fiction he gets
    help from his private eyes, reporters, and "who-dun-it" fans. In real life
    mostly all he gets from the public is "I didn't see nuttin." When he serves
    a summons, he is a monster; If he lets you go he is a "Doll." To little kids
    he is either a friend or a boogey-man, depending on how the parents feel
    about it.

    Policemen work around the clock, split shifts, Sundays, and holidays, and it
    always kills him when a joker says "Hey tomorrow is Election Day, I'm off
    let's go fishing." (That is the day he works 20 hours).

    When a policeman is good he is a grafter, and that goes for the rest of them
    too. When he shoots a stick-up man he is a hero, except when the stick-up
    man in only a kid "anybody coulda seen that."

    Policemen have homes, some of them are covered with ivy, but most of them
    mortgages. If he drives a big car he's a chissler, a little car --- who is
    he kidding.

    His credit is good - that is very helpful, because his salary isn't.

    Policemen raise a lot of kids, mostly they belong to other people.

    Policemen see more misery, bloodshed, trouble, and sunrises than the average
    person. Like the postman, policemen must be out in all kinds of weather.
    His uniform changes with the climate, but his outlook on life remains the
    same, mostly a blank, but always hoping for a better world.

    Policemen like days off, vacations and coffee. They don't like auto horns,
    family fights and anonymous letter writers. They have an Association, but
    they do not strike. They must be impartial, courteous, and always remember
    the slogan "at your service." This is sometimes hard, especially when some
    character reminds him "I'm a taxpayer, I pay your salary."

    Policemen get medals for saving lives, stopping runaway horses and shooting
    it out with bandits (once in a while his widow gets the medal.) But
    sometimes the most rewarding moment comes when after some small kindness to
    a person, he feels the warm handclasp, looks into grateful eyes and hears
    Thank you and God bless you.

    to all the Police Officers On LEF and around the world, My Blue light shines for you. Thank you for keeping all of us safe from harm.

    Ya know, Danny, I think my job becomes worth it everytime I deal with a toddler. You answer a call and that little kid peeks around moms legs and looks up at ya with big, totally innocent eyes. Were that more adults could look like that. I think I need to go start a thread.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    it is the hardest to go to stupid domestics with the kids...

    i am more amazed at 4 year olds that know what is going on big time... and better yet.. understand that its wrong!
    scary....

    kids are losing their childhoods...

    i know I lost mine and it is hard to see others losing thiers.. its a hard road to deal with and they will have to either choose to be strong, smart and live or be a coward and die.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Speak for yourself. I'm a law enforcement machine.
    The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando
