    But don't take the nazi thing personal.  You could get called a nazi for posting a pootie pic.  It's the anonymous internet.

    You know, everyone talks about the transformation of the left's opinion about military personel since the 60s, and honestly, I think we do have a lot to be proud about on that score. "Netroots for the Troops" isn't 1960s style lefty behavior.  But I think the attitudes towards the police have been just as dramatic.  We've come a long way since the days when "Pig!" was acceptable in activist circles.

    Anyway, I love hearing from liberal cops.  Thanks for what you do.

      Most of my family remained in Germany during that period and some were in fact nazis. Not like you had much choice.

      That is what is scary, fascist govt make good people into something they may not be otherwise.

      If someone gives you an order and it goes against you very moral fiber but you carry it out anyway, then in fact, there is not much difference between yourself and a gestapo thug.

        as an aside is the observation that Austria has never come to terms with its Nazi past and many former Nazis enjoyed very successful careers after the war.  Always remember the old Pete Seeger song "Hitler is alive and well in you".  Cops are not the only profession tending towards Brown Shirts

          are given guns, authority, and trust.  I dont care much if the guy selling me a slurpee at 7 -11 is a fascist thugs,  I do mind a great deal if a cop I have to deal with is.
