This lady came up to me screaming her lungs out about how "we" (cops I assume) are everything that's wrong with America today. I guess screaming at me is protected under the First Amendment.

I don't know how there are still people who don't value all the effort we make as police officers.

I guess she's within her rights but that doesn't mean it's okay to yell at someone who hasn't earned it.

That is due to the ACAB movement, the lack of respect for us as police officers is increasing, and we have been demonized by the mistake of a few.

What a pity to read this, the image that has been created of us as police officers is unfortunate, I have to say that half of the blame lies with the force for allowing corrupt and racist police officers to continue on the streets, but at the same time, I feel that there are a tendency to discredit us and they are achieving it.

How embarrassing that this is what we've come to as a society. Just wait until they need us to come help them out during a robbery or home invasion

I can understand that some people feel frustrated with the current state of America, but screaming at you or any other cop is not going to solve anything. The police are just a small part of the problem and scapegoating us will not fix anything.

Everyone's a critic right? Seriously though. She has a right to her opinion but anyone who saw her do this probably just thought she was crazy. She didn't exactly come out of the situation looking like a reputable source of information, let's say.

Ah, the joys of working on the street. It's hard to take this kind of thing in stride but just rely upon your training: you know why you are doing your job, and it's not to feel like you're winning any popularity contests. I've been hit, kicked, had things thrown at me, and of course people have screamed. Just goes with the territory, an unfortunate reality.
