Did you happen to read above where my family are cops? Know what a great way is to raise your arrest count on a slow month?
While your average 35yo white male cop is walking his beat on predominantly black Vine street you simply toss your steaming cup of white castle coffee in the face of a local.... instantly you have a man angry enough to assault an officer... and you get to beat his ass.
Oh how about this one. Clearing a triple homicide and checking personal property evidence into the station except it has none of the green american cash that it used to have. That was what one of my uncles went down as a Cincinnati cop. Would you like to guess how many different US police forces wanted to hire him after he was finally dismissed? A year of union sponsored lobbying to keep his job but he finally lost and was immediately offered jobs in Indiana, Kentucky, California, Texas.... multiple offers too not simply a few po dunk towns either... Indiana and Kentucky included the state police.
So perhaps your experience has been slightly different than others. Just slightly.
