I have a strong and wide guardian streak in me but I also have a strong and wide anti-stupid-authority streak. If I could have faith in my superior officers and their superiors I would be able to follow orders as much as would be necessary for such a position. If I could trust in my fellow officers, I would be proud to go to work everyday.
As it is, I treat all police officers that I encounter with respect but I have a strong wariness of "The Police". As individuals,
they vary just like all people vary with a higher incidence of "good" people than average although a lower tolerance of the "weird". As a group, I find them stultifying and oppressive. As an institution, "The Police" are pretty much against just about everything that I stand for.
