well, its about context wolf. what i'm saying is that the exact same officers that you have had good run-ins with at work or whatever are the exact same officers that will lie to uphold the 'brotherhood' or use lies to get the average citizen to fuck themselves. to be fair - i'm not saying every cop is a stormtrooper like officerragealot here - i'm saying that every cop lies and uses deception and intimidation in their day to day interactions with the public. And they do. the same cop that just weighed your truck or checked your license on the river...
i see it all the time. if i'm on the river with my boat looking all guidely and shit, its nothing but good 'ol boy backslaping and 'hows the fishing?' bs with them. but if i'm in town or on I5 with shortsleeves all tatted up wearing a tshirt and a fitted hat - Barney Fife aint there - usually Terminator cop
