    I don't trust them one bit. Mostly because they don't really seem to trust the general public. I'd also like to add that seeing 5 cops beat up 1 man doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in their skills.

    All the police officers I have had interactions with have been decent guys.

    I still don't like seeing them in my rearview mirror much,

    my brother in law and my nephew are both police officers. I have a least three other relatives who are firefighters. So, I respect and admire all those who put their lives between us and danger. But....
    We had one ugly incident where someone in my family was falsely accused of a hate crime. Regrettably we trusted the police. We ended up getting a lawyer, going to superior court and finally to arbitration with the accuser. With all parties around a table, including the rep from the accuser's insurance company, we told our story. By the time we were through the insurance rep had his on the table just shaking it back and forth, like no, no, no...Anyway, on the advise of the accuser's attorney all charges were dropped and there was a settlement in our favor. My point is that we had made the mistake of talking to the police without a lawyer and allowed them into our house without a warrant. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Never ever do that even when you know you're innocent.
    I a trusting person, too trusting probably. But I learned my lesson the hard way.

    Police used to be called PEACE OFFICERS. Now they're called LAW ENFORCEMENT. Enough said.

    That is so true. We are forced to obey and we have no choice.
    You know, police do not save lives, the investigate murders.

    Where I come from, when you see a police car or officer, you turn and run the other way.
    That isn't an indication of guilt; it's the appropriate reaction.

    I once had a bad experience... I was beaten up by a drugged up boyfriend. I DID NOT know he took drugs until it was too late.
    The police got called by a neighbor and the BF had opened the front door before he started hitting me... I was fighting back.. The police walked in as I manged a kick to the knee..... they saw it.. I am the one that got arrested with a bloody nose, sprang wrist and a big knot forming on head. The next morning I had a big black eye.. They let him stay in my apt... He stole my notebook and the money from my purse...... With me telling them He will steal me blind . My son had to come get me out and take me to the hospital. Police let my blood pressure soar to dangerous heights.... The charges on me were waived as they saw the mistake but it took months . Over zealous cop ! SO no, I don't trust police much. They could see he had no marks on him at all and he was over 6ft...... and I was bloodied when the took me out.. SO , I am very careful and watch what I say around the police ....... They are human and they do screw UP !!!
    Had never ever seen the inside of police car, had never really ever talked to a policeman or even had a ticket before that incident. My son ran his butt off before I ever came home.

    My father was a police officer for over 25 years, I grew up in a positive light with police. Police has ran in my family for 3 generations. I don't like how some people don't like police, just because of one or two officers. I mean, I get yes, their are SOME bad officers out there but 99% of them are genuine nice people. Plus they put their lives at stake for us every day and night !

    I will not let a group of men and women who take on gangs, drug dealers, murderers, road ragers, child molesters, rapists, kidnappers, batterers, psychopaths, violent drunks, and drunk drivers every day and put them away working to keep us safe, be maligned by those with an insane entitlement mentality that can't control themselves and act in a civilized manner, or by those few cops that do act abhorrently. I will not view the vast majority of police through the eyes of the ridiculous few.

    No, I don't trust much, if not all, of the polices because they've given me reasons not to, and have still not yet given me reasons to trust them.

    Not really undecided. I don't place complete trust in ANY person except my wife probably. But although a lot of cops get into the profession for honorable reasons they soon get tunnel vision and veiw EVERYONE else as a potential crimminal. They also get a very serious case of Superiorority.
