I believe many of them are more criminal than the jailbirds.
Only good cop is dead cop
I'll drink to that
if they respect me i'll respect them
Bit of both. While if I'm in trouble or assaulted, I would go to the police, I've witnessed how they can really do nothing in dire situations. Additionally I've studied the difference in treatment the PSNI has applied to catholic and protestants during the Troubles and before it. So all in all, if someone's going to murder me, sure I'd tell them, but I'd still keep a weapon on me to deal with them myself
I respect the office, the officer is on a case-by-case basis.
traffic cops- they want to give tickets. detectives you call if someone breaks in or the like, yes I respect those
