"don't get paid that much" Some get paid over 100k a year and are expected to act above normal citizens, they are not supposed to lash back at criminals in a criminal manner just because they "started it". That is both childish and ridiculous. Police believe that they are above the law because they enforce it. This is not the case and needs to change.

1. You need to be on the force for like 20 years to even be able to make that much
2. Yelling at someone isn't criminal
3. Not all police believe they are above the law, most become police because they respect law and want to uphold it.

Because shouting is a fucking criminal manner. Next time you yell I expect someone to slap a pair of irons on you for being a criminal.

The guy on the right is an asshole yes. But police have a sacred responsibility that comes with the powers they receive upon becoming police officers regardless of how much they get paid. There job is to apprehend people who appear to have committed a crime and for the courts to decide whether or not the did commit a crime. With the exception of a circumstance were the lives of the police or a civilian is threatened in which case deadly force may be necessary. Any police officer who takes punishment into his own hands/ abuses this power to harass people when a crime has not been committed should not be a cop. Policing is a shit profession to be in, yes but for those who decide to live a life of service suffering is often required and there sacrifice should be respected. (excuse the grammar)

Cop gets yelled at

Cop yells back

Cop is "abusing his power"

I'm just putting into context the duties of police in reply to ncstroll in which saying that cops don't get paid much so it's excusable that they aren't always going to deal with people shit. I'm not certain where I stand on cops yelling back if they are yelled at. I don't think I would if I was a cop if only for the reason of it creates a less well defined line of not getting personally involved in a situation other then my official duty's. At the very least its unprofessional.

The duty of an officer is to protect the people. That's pretty much it. Hell, according to the Desmedt use of force continuum that's used in the US, the cop could pepper spray the guy for getting in his face like that because according to said continuum, the officer is always allowed to use one level of force greater than the suspect is using (that's to say if suspect takes a swing, cop can taze him. Guy has his own tazer and tries to use it, cop can shoot him, etc.). That whole "cops need to act a certain way" thing is bullshit. If you're dealing with someone who may get violent, the last thing you should be doing is trying to be as polite as possible because they'll think you're weak and then they may take a swing.

Very first sentence, "The duty of an officer is to protect the people." I'm not going to bother reading the rest of what you said because you obviously don't know what you're talking about. The duty of cops are to uphold the law. You're pretty dumb.

A cop yelling at someone isnt seen as abusing power or abusing in general cause Cops have set the "abusing power" bar pretty low, So a cop yelling at someone isnt even noticeable. Cause there is a LOT more things they could be doing. Keep in mind, the dude is allowed to have a gun, so if chooses to yell at you, count yourself lucky.

Survival wasn't dependant upon bears.

And about bear hunting history in North America:

"...In 1818, a “War of Extermination” against wolves and bears was declared in Ohio.[15] Bear pelts were usually sold for 2-20 dollars in the 1860s.[4] Between 1850 and 1920 grizzly bears were eliminated from 95% of their original range,..."

Plus I don't see how killing them for trading their pelts would make it any less immoral.
#111 - ncsutroll (06/08/2014) [-]
2-20 dollars was a shitload of money back then. we have no idea what this man did for a living and it wasn't like you could just go get a job managing a store or something back then, the thought that hunting/killing an animal is hippy BS, if the animal was used, then so be it. As it is today in many areas bears are overpopulated again. TL;DR - bear is delicious
