What do you feel about the presence of Policemen around you?

I never feel comfortable in the presence of policemen. It's not that I have past records!!! Yet, I have this queer feeling, a kind of disgust. And contrary to the notion that policemen's presence gives you a feeling of security, I feel insecure. I feel I am going to be robbed, or beaten or framed! May be the behavior of the policemen of our country is the source of it. What do you have to say about it? Do you feel the same way? I would like to hear from a policeman or relative or a friend of a policeman here, what is their opinion. Thanking you beforehand for sharing your feelings here.

yes we feel somewhat a very odd way when we are surrounded or even they pass on by we feel very odd.We know its only for our good, when we never did any wrong or mistake why we shoul d fear but its human nature that bring fright and we just try to be away from them.

May be it's true that they are for our betterment. But sometimes I have this feeling that they are some how levelled in their brains, that's why they look peculiar. Their presence has this steel or rather rust quality, which is very much cultivated in them. I may be wrong too. But, this is my honest observation only.

They also will be thingking in the same way, they also wll be thinking that we are good but dont know why they fear of us , they are also humans like us , its only because they should do their duty they look like that.

Even though I am well aware that it is their job to protect us, I never feel completely at ease when I am around the police. I just think that they're looking for people to do something wrong, so I cannot do anything without feeling at ease. If I walk past any other person in the street, I will smile at them, but for some reason if that person is a police officer I will look at the floor and simply walk on by. There's something about them that makes you feel instant guilt. I was in a park once when I was 14, and was sat eating a picnic with my group of friends. A police man came over to us and said that such large groups (9 of us) were not allowed, as we were teenagers, and that we should split up and go home. We were doing nothing wrong at all so it makes you think that they might attempt to pin something on you that you hadn't done at other times, too.

Whenever a policeman (or policewoman) passes me on the street I ALWAYS blush. Thank God I'm not up to something because there's no way I'd be able to lie my way out of it!
