RE: Try to be a better person
Loved reading this! Awesome post :) This is not exactly the same, but the same meaning (I think) - I was saying to a friend only yesterday, that I could not be a police officer. He asked me why? I said because I cannot blindly do something because someone tells me to. Especially if I have my own opinion about it and I most probably do. I could not arrest/charge/fine someone for smoking marijuana, driving without a licence, or no car registration and so many other things as I do not agree and would not just do because..... I have said to many officers that if they would like, I can have an educated discussion with them on a number of things if they would like. Of course, I generally got the typical sheeple response of, oh well, not really interested and I don't really care, I am told to do it and it's just the law so you have to follow. I have had only 1-2 asked a question or two and also have that "look". That look that you know you have triggered something in them and hopefully they will do more research.
