Kids are taught to be scared to see a policeman.

When I was a child, I often hear mothers tell their kids to behave or else they will call a policeman to arrest them. Policemen need to mingle with the community but this mis-education or habitual inculcation of bad impression to the kids create fear among the community as the kids grow up. Even now that I am already a police officer, whenever I come to pass along the street, parents would do the same thing and honestly made me annoyed because our reputation are being push down while we are trying as hard as we can to rebuild it and make a good impression to the society. Would you think it is fair for us to become scare crows?
