Why do people hate law enforcement?

My Dad is a highway patrol man and my Mom is a lawyer, people at my school like to call me a prisoner they don't even know what it's like living with my parents, I love it. my parents are the sweetest most kind hearted people I've ever met. kids my age have no respect for people of the law! My dad responds to so many car wrecks due to drunk teens trying to get home the ones that live and kill another person my mother has to put away in court. She doesn't like it she doesn't enjoy putting young people behind bars for a mistake they make and my dad sure doesn't enjoy contacting these teenagers parents when they don't survive! Yeah my dad crashes your parties but while most of you are running away he's picking up drunk teenagers with alcohol poisoning up off the floor and calling them an ambulance.
I guess I'm just wondering if so many people have so many unpleasant things to say about police and lawyers then why do they call them when they need help?
I understand that all police aren't good people and can abuse their power my dad has explained that but why bash all of the ones that are here to help?

I've found that over the years , that the only people who hate Law Officers are the ones committing the crimes ! When they get busted , it's always the Cops fault and not their own ! You sure aren't any prisoner ! My daughter is a Lawyer in Wash. State . I think the only ones that hate them are the hard core criminals ! You should be proud !

Because they don't like getting in trouble. And because they're really stupid. The kids not the law enforcement.

I arrested 12 cops in my career, and was responsible for thousands of non cop arrests. Please do lump use all together because of a few idiots!

I know that some cops are corrupt but not all of them are and the fact that you think so little of them is pretty offensive. They are out there everyday trying to protect you and me.

I'm sure its more than one city...especially worldwide. I just don't trust them anymore. They use to be the nicest of people now these days they are corrupt along with the political figures.
Report as
No all of them.

Not many if them are bullies

i feel the same way as you helixaqua cops tried to blame me for something i didn't do (i actually didn't do it it may sound as an excuse but i really didn't do anything) so when i tried to explain to them that i didn't do anythign and that i may have known someone who did they wouldn't let me talk they would just yell at me and tell me to shut up so i got a stupid citation for like 50$ which aint much but still some cops are just freaking bullies...

When you see firemen and ambulance workers you automatically think "wow they are there to save someone's life!" When you encounter cops or lawyers you are usually getting a ticket or being "prosecuted" or "divorce" lawyers. Most of those encounters have a negative feeling attached. I am glad you have good parents and we humbly thank them for their services. :0)

A majority of the time law enforcement is doing great acts of kindness, sometimes more than us citizens.

I will have to quote FDR "...With great power comes great responsibility...".
Many cops know that, and many don't. Personally, I don't like to judge many large groups or organizations. The 'bad' white, black, Mexican, Asian, etc don't define the whole race. Same goes for bad cops.

I feel like people hate them cause they hardly ever try to just talk to you and let you explain yourself they just go straight to being all mean and angry at you and not letting you talk.

Tell you Dad from me "Thanks for your service!" Many try but few succeed in that line of work! My kids fought the same battle! School, friends, the public, no matter where they were at people always treated them differently. Unfortunately some people don't ever mature and realize we, like them are just people, we make mistakes! Keep up the good fight, thanks for trying.

Look up a video about an active duty soldier gets arrested illegally when he was open carrying an AR-15 assault rifle those cops had no right at all to take his rifle at all.

Don't they use an m4?
Report as
The AR-15 has been around WAY longer than the M4. The M4 was designed for military soldiers in the late years of Vietnam I believe but they called it the CAR-15 because it basically was a shorter M16 but for CQB purposes and field combat. An AR-15 nowadays most of them are modeled after M4 designs. Yes police forces do use M4's but I believe only their SWAT teams use them and Homeland Security but your average patrol man will be armed with a pistol or a 12 gauge shotgun. Watch the video to understand its sad to know how a lot of veterans are being treated by the police force these days.

Because of the actions of a few. It's absolutely wrong, but that's why.
