    Do police desserve respect?

    With all of the police brutality cases going on in the world right now, I wonder what this world is coming to. I started not to post a debate on this because I'm sure we all have different views on this subject and it's probably not the same views but we are all adults here and I'm sure, we can discuss this without bashing one another. So, what are your thoughts?
    Just Peachy and you?

    My two cents.....

    I have always had respect for authority including police and I have raised my kids to respect authority. My dad was a police and deputy sheriff while I was growing up and I believe that made me go into that same line of work..somewhat.

    Lately, we've been hearing of nothing but bad things about police officers and I don't like it at all. Yes, I know there are some that are "bad cops" but that doesn't make them all bad.

    I do not care what color you are, or what family you came from, if a police officer asks you a question or tells you to stop....then simply do as they have asked and nine times out of ten, you won't be hurt.

    Many people today do not have any respect for authority and they raise their children to do the same and this is what gets people hurt. Police officers do not make a whole lot of money but yet they are there to protect us. Why not show them respect?

    I know my rights as a citizen and honestly, I know more about some of the codes and law than most officers do but I don't use that against them.

    I believe Police Officers need more training when it comes to laws and codes of the county or city where they are working which would mean more schooling which would mean more pay for them.

    I'm really sick and tired of hearing about how a black police shot a white person and how a white police shot a black person. Who cares about the color of a person and I'm almost positive that white or black police do not go hunting people of the opposite color to shoot or whatever. Yeah, I'm sure some do profile and that's just a way of life but I don't think they go out seeking people of the opposite color to target. I believe Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are starting a racial war. They need to stop because we already live in a screwed up world and they are making it worse!

    For me, as in any given field, or with any group of people, there will be good and bad ideologies and good and bad people pushing them. As far as officers of the law are concerned, you have a body of men and women who on any given day put their lives on the line. That deserves respect in and of itself. Certainly bad choices can be made, or even more heinous acts perpetrated, but it's unfortunate that it should taint an institution that can also have such good and altruistic individuals in its midst.

    I think the military gets a bad rap often as well; but I have tremendous respect for the five marine nephews I have and the work they do overseas and here. What is reported often, and for longer times, for police and military, is the truly repulsive behavior instead of the acts of courage and heroism.

    I believe they do deserve respect. I think society tends to forget that they are human beings with the same fears and stresses as we would have when they have a weapon pointed at them or feel they are in an unsafe environment. They are no different than we are in the fact they want to return safely to their families at the end of their day. No one can honestly say how they would react in a threatening moment.

    Yes they do deserve respect. Also, everyone else deserves respect. They are not above the Law, they shouldn't feel like they are above the Law. They are there to protect and serve.

    Happy New Year! - Layla Hope your new year is wonderful! (ít looked chocolatiest) - debbee 
    They definitely deserve respect, I can only imagine the stress and pressure they go through on a daily basis. I don't think the problem is with law enforcement, I think it's with people that have been enabled or think that they are owed something by society. The reason I don't get harassed, shot, beat up, or arrested is because I don't break the freaking law. Just my 2 cents...
