How many times? Good question.
3 out of 5 administrators have run me under a bus.
Coworkers? Much better odds.

Out of uniform?
Oddly except for one trooper chick, all of my LE experiences have been pleasant at least, even when getting a ticket. And with my lead foot, that’s been more than a few times. And in 7 states.

Why do I support those still in it? Because I’ve been there.
And in different circumstances, well the saying “There but for the grace of god go I.” applies.

Matt76, thanks for the PM.

I have worked with the best and the worst.
I can’t condemn them all because of a few.
Nor can I condemn the few because of the many.

Individuals, that’s another matter.
I’ll even bring the rope.
