To protect and serve who?

I have a complaint about the police.  I've grown up and I no longer fear and avoid them, as I have nothing to hide, but I have a new set of problems with them.  Mainly this: When most city police I see around are on patrol, they don't obey most of the traffic laws.  They set a very bad example for other drivers by not using turn signals, not stopping at intersections, and passing when/where they shouldn't pass.  I understand that on the one hand they don't have to worry about getting tickets because they never will, so why bother?  But on the other hand, the reason people are supposed to use turn signals when turning or changing lanes is for the safety of other drivers on the road.  So just because they don't have to worry about getting a ticket, does that mean that they don't have to worry about safety and courtesy and other drivers?  Just because you don't have to doesn't mean you shouldn't.
I believe it is tied in with the insecurities and inadequacies of many of the people who choose to become police officers, because then they feel they won't be pushed around or made fun of, because they have a gun and they can act tough.  People who feel inadequate either drive giant trucks which serve no purpose, or they become police who serve no purpose.  Drive fast, cut people off, & generally make yourself feel superior even though you have a tiny d***.  Good luck with that.

  1. Obviously this isn't directed at all police, & I know that they serve a purpose in our society. It is directed at the ones who do these things. Grow up & be a decent person.
