I think you are right about the difference between big cities and small towns. I think another reason it might be true is because small town police usually live in the community and know most folks there.

This, I think, makes them actually behave and use common sense. The bad ones usually don't last. I know of at least two who left here to go to the big city and get jobs and they were both jerks.

It takes a special kind of assh*le to be a cop. They aren't necessarily bad people and we very much need them.

No matter what sort of mayhem or madness occurs, they are the first ones to rush in and restore order,

But they really need to stop shooting people.

I thought about being a cop. At the time I had experience on the other side. I didn't like what I was doing and figured that if I became a cop I would have to deal with folks like me everyday. I gave up being a cop and also what I was doing. Just didn't make any sense to me.

Texas member of Boogaloo Bois charged with opening fire on Minneapolis police precinct during protests over George Floyd.

Boogaloo Boi Ivan Harrison Hunter, 26, of Texas, is now facing federal charges for firing an AK-47 style semiautomatic rifle into the Minneapolis Police Department's Third Precinct building back in May, during the George Floyd protests.

He is the third Boogaloo Boi to face charges in Minneapolis this year. The other two would be the ones who offered material support to Hamas. Trump's base. coffee

It's just like the FBI said: The greatest danger in America comes from the alt-Right.
