Money, Power and Respect… circle back to this. Cops are the class nerds when you were in high school. Going back a little farther, in elementary we called them tattle tales.
There is a reason you do not need a degree to apply and be hired as a police officer. Most “hazardous” jobs where your life is at risk you are paid “hazard pay”( Not Cops). The average cop makes 50k a year for the stressful line of work they were able to secure.
Circling back, making 50k a year at a high risk job stresses you out. So this puts them in a shitty mood on a daily basis. Just think how this affects them mentally when they pull over the neighborhood dope boy in something exotic that cost 2-3 years of their salary. This is The “Money”.
Cops really have no Power on/off the job since you need money first. The laws in the US are actually in our favor and most arrests are the arrestees fault. To an informed citizen cops are reduced to their title, “Servants”. Follow the Pot Brothers at Law on Instagram as STFU fridays is priceless. I believe they are coming to Miami this month with Joe and Cris if anyone wants to ride.
Respect, first you get the Money, then you get the power, then N!G@S will respect you ass. Cops get no respect anywhere they go. That’s why they are issued a gun and even then they dont get any.
These come into play when they come across a guy sending 100 #'s in the mail every week. They have to contend that this guy just pulled in their yearly salary dropping some box’s off. While they work long hours getting no respect doing a job that few want to do.
This is why I really how buddy hires a great firm and takes these fools to the cleaners.
a “gung-ho” Fedex driver took it upon himself to report the shipment to the 75th Precinct when it arrived in Brooklyn — despite the fact that the cargo had all the necessary documentation to prove it was legal.
Seems to me like the FedEx driver may have thought he was gonna see a pay day from turning in the shipment… Just saying… If I were to be shipping that much hemp I would for sure wrap it correctly so to not smell. Why risk multiple thousands of $$$? LAZY!
While I agree with the first paragraph about the job simply selecting for those who crave authority, I can’t say the “stress” of their job justifies their behavior. I worked some construction jobs where death or serious injury was a very real daily threat for about half of that salary and knew some guys who saw the gruesome shit that happened to their unlucky coworkers. ICU and ER nurses see some of the most fucked up shit imaginable on a daily basis. Yet I never see people in those career fields acting the way cops do. Even in their private lives. There’s a reason cops have some of the highest rates of domestic violence compared to those working in any other profession.
A cop’s only duty is to protect and serve the interest of the state. If there is even an ounce of suspicion that you’re not obeying the law, it makes more sense for them to nail you to the wall and sort it out later than do anymore research on their own to prove your innocence. Add to that their qualified immunity, the toxic “thin blue line” culture and an “us vs them” mentality, and this is what you get. Authority with impunity is a scary combination that few can resist abusing.
If you haven’t realized yet that our entire country (US) is founded by a good old boys club of powerful white men and has continued on that path for the entire lifetime of our country, and that the police are their enforcers, I feel for you. The war on drugs and the private prison system are one of the biggest money rackets in the nation. For every non-violent drug offender kept in jail the private prison system makes more than a years full-time minimum wage salary, and that is net profit not gross. The more people they can put in jail for victimless crimes the more money they make. We’re talking billions of dollars here.
The patriots came here from Britain, and started killing natives and taking over, putting power structures in place. During the civil war the government killed 80 million natives to secure their ultimate power. How has this not been a hostile takeover since day one? People in power don’t just randomly come into power. They plan for generations well beyond their death. The “patriots” were just old white men who wanted to be in total control rather than be under the queen of Britain’s rule.
First you get the money. Once you have the capital you have the power to do what you want( move around/call shots). Once dudes realize you can be anywhere literally or with a phone call they will respect you. It’s how the greatest mafia in the word(US govt) works. The US govt is based on the mafia. They provide you protection at a cost.
