Police who needs them. Most are worst criminals then the people they bust. Vigilante is the way to go

Have you had a bad experience with the police,you sound very bitter towards them .I would have thought in a country like Canada the police would have been good.

It depend on where your police are. However, I think that in most places, the police treat the people the way the people treat them. In most cases if the people are courteous, the police will be too. in our contry I thank they are good. If I get into an unknown street I always ask the guidence from the police .I always have good experience with them.

I am pleased to hear you have faith in your police they are the people we call when we need help so it would be awful if you didn't trust them or have confidence they would really help you

I think that, specially in some parts of Italy, police is afraid of bad people and it doesn't do all the possible to preserve the citizens.

I believe, with all people there are good and bad. Yes there are the donut eaters and yes there are the heavy handed ones. but there also the ones out there that really do care about there jobs as being a cop. I know were i live the bad probably out weigh the good ones. I do get upset with them at times. I have a 67 chevy impalla california lowrider. and every time I drive that car into town I get pulled over. Not because im breaking the law, but because they think im out to cause trouble.I guess they want to see who is behind the smoked glass.. I just have to remind myself. that they are trying to do the best they can. And I just keep telling them I love fast old cars with class... maybe I'll get it threw there heads one of these days.

I wouldn't want their job they have to make split second decisions and try to decide who is doing the right thing and who isn't.It always amazes me that when they stop cars 9 times out of 10 they stop the person who has a record or been involved in something they seem to have a second sense about these things.Then there are the people like yourself who are constantly stopped for not reason .Hope they get it one day and leave you alone

ya sometimes they do good job sometimes don't even respond to our complaints....
@rosebug23 (1909)

I imagine the police are very busy and have to respond to the worst problems then if time permits handle the lesser complaints.If you had a man in your home bashing you or your family and rang the police and they didn't come as they were at someones house because the kid next door swore and threw stones in the garden you would be very angry.They have to prioritize there work

Well, that depends on where in the world are you. In my country..corruption is so rampant and most of the officials including the policemen are blinded by money. Aside from which, policemen can be bought..meaning, if you were caught bya policeman, you can just pay him with some amount and he won't give you a ticket or won't put you to jail. Sad to say but that is reality here in my country.

Good question! But a little hard to answer without knowing where your police are. However, I think that in most places, the police treat the people the way the people treat them. In most cases if the people are courteous, the police will be too. On the other hand there are certain people who let their mouths get them into trouble.
