A member here, Douger, made a very disturbing statement on another thread, hinting towards his desire to see more cops killed. Mentioning 2010 as the deadliest year for cops in many years, he stated "2010 was a good start". Very disturbing. But that opinion is the minority: Nurses Shine While Bankers Slump in Ethics Ratings Police are the 5th Most-Trusted profession, with less than 9% showing little trust. Firemen and Nurses ranked the highest usually on this study. Teachers also. Clergy, ranked below cops at 6th. Politicians, bankers, salesmen ranked very very low. Anyway, this has been a horrible week for law enforcement, with as many as 20 cops shot in the last 3 days nationwide. Just wanted to point out that while it seems everyone hates cops lately, that opinion is the minority view, as most citizens trust cops.....even if they do hate the occassional traffic ticket. So in many ways the cop haters are much like the corrupt cops............both are in the less than 9% minority in their field of peers.
