coppin' a plea

Anybody who reads my blog knows that I'm pro cop. I believe in what they do and I support them. It stands to reason then, that I'm always on the look out for a GOOD cop blog. Problem is you don't know positively that the person writing it IS a cop. You just have to take their word for it.

There's one blog that I used to read avidly and it started to piss me off on a level I couldn't quite grasp. The posts always wrapped up neatly and WW and I have had many discussions as to wheter or not the person writing it was a cop. In the back of my mind, this kept bugging me, and it wasn't until this morning when I was on my way to work that I figured out why it pissed me off so much.

I don't know whether or not the person writing it is a cop, I've had my doubts, but that isn't the issue at hand. In most cop blogs that I read, the system is a major thorn in their side and more often than not, the system beats them down, causing them hella frustration. But in this guy's blog, the cops always win, the cops are always right and the cops always get the last word. Real life is NOT that way. When people bitch to me about the cops--and they do--one of the things I hear most often is that cops think they're above the law, and it's blogs like this one that does it's best to perpetuate that myth. And THAT'S why it pisses me off. Mystery solved.

While I'm on the subject of all things law related, what the HELL were the people behind McGruff the Crime Dog thinking when they thunked him up? He's a dog, wearing a damn full length trench coat! Hell, he looks like he just stepped out of a porno theater. You half expect him to open his rain coat and growl, "Take a bite out of *this*, baby!"

And one final COP comment...after watching COPS, I've decided that the Tennessee cops have THEE BEST SOUTHERN ACCENTS IN THE COUNTRY!!! Not too harsh, not too twangy, it's juuuuuust perfect;)

I think I know which one you're talking about. Not every story has a crappy ending, but I see what you mean.
