Utah Bob #35998 Posted June 3, 2019 Share Posted June 3, 2019 What started as a amusing thread has lead to harsh words. None of us in law enforcement are excusing cops who behave as buttheads. I always tried to em part the wisdom of Sir Robert Peel’s principles of policing into those officers who worked for me. Among them, especially Quote PRINCIPLE 3: Police must secure the willing cooperation of the public in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public. Granted there will be a few who do not grasp that concept. But only a few. And for those of you who care to brand virtually all the members of the profession with the evaluation of incompetence, discourtesy or brutality I can only say you are, in my opinion, mistaken. But I realize there is nothing I can do to change such strong opinions so I will simply go about my business and wish you well. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
