Becoming a police officer is a choice just as anyone who chooses any profession. Medical doctors, food preparers, seamstresses, and preachers also make a choice to go into their respected professions.

No police officer has ever saved my life nor have they ever treated me with respect. Respect is earned, not given. So why are police officers jobs that much important than those of other professions? Understand that once corruption begins, it cannot stop until every shred becomes corrupted. Police officers are ordered to meet monthly quotas for the revenue of the city, county, state, and nation by handing out a certain number of tickets and arresting a certain number of people each month. Where is the respect and honor in this type of work?
