Re: Am I an 'operator' at anchor?
No, I think the fact is there are a significant number of LEO that are just jerks. NOT the majority, but obviously, from the sentiments express in this thread alone, enough to paint LEO's in general in a bad light.
I have been harassed a couple of times over the years. In each and every case I was doing nothing wrong, was not charged, arrested or even ticketed. Just some cop had an attitude and wanted to spray his territory.
And while not ALL have an attitude, even the two detectives that came to my house several years ago to talk to my daughter about a girl she knew who had run away from home had that typical "cop" attitude and posture. You know, we have authority, we're on OFFICIAL business, etc... Small wonder my daughter wanted nothing to do w/ speaking to them. Hell I didn't even like them. (PS. She didn't know anything, but later that week she did get a call from the girl; I promptly relayed the info to the detective.)
