    Griffo seems to think that officers aren't getting enough respect nowadays and passing a law will make people respect the police.
    The reason why police aren't getting enough respect is because the public perceives them as being out of control.  Add to that the military haircuts, the body armor, and the "it's us against the public" attitude, why should they get respect?

    Too many cops forget they're public servants on the public nickel.  I understand it can be a dangerous job.  Begs the question why the police want to make it more dangerous by seeing the public as the enemy.
