    dangerous but, the cops like to make it sound way more dangerous than it statistically is...they should try commercial fishing...

    •  I've never done commerical fishing (0+ / 0-)

      but then again last I checked the fish don't shoot at you.

      Look I am not interested in getting into a pissing contest over this, can we please avoid this? Yes many commerical fishing jobs are dangerous so too is police work. The difference is I bet commerical fishing pays a lot better then the average patrol officer

      •  where I come from there are cops making (0+ / 0-)

        well in excess of 100k because they do many paid details and are often double billing municipalities for standing on a roadside.

        There are many jobs more statistically dangerous than police work but cops want it to seem as though they do the most dangerous work around...they don't.

        •  that's not the same thing (0+ / 0-)

          and in fact it makes my point for me because cops do indeed often have to take multiple side jobs to make ends meet

          And statistically nothing, there are very few jobs where you never know if you're pulling over a dangerous felon with a load gun or joe smoe who was driving a little too fast.

          Many jobs are dangerous, few are as unpredictably dangerous as police work
