When people say to not gives cops attitude do they mean that police are prone to emotional temper tantrums?

Are they saying that police cannot be expected to be in control of their emotions and you need to have compassion for their child-like ignorance? That you must behave more like an adult than the officer is expected to act like? Because he has the authority and prerogative to have an emotional outburst and abuse his authority any time he chooses and you must expect that and understand in a way that a parent is supposed to understand their child's juvenile delinquency?

    It means do what ever the police officer asks you to do. It appears you are the one prone to temper tantrums.

    They mean the cop who you encounter has your balls in his hand and can crush them by citing you for either bull doo-doo charges that are not accurate or cite you for every single little thing, hence adding to your fines and/or taking away your freedom by arrest....so, become their b#tch and don't tempt them as you never know which psycho loser who hated high school and became a cop to feel superior to the cool kids, will be pulling you over with a hardon for punishment. There's been studies on the type of personalities that choose to become cops and those psychological profies are iinsecure douchebags. Of course there's exceptions to all things, the problem is you dont if the exception is pulling you oveer or the douchebag. So, be nice for your own wellbeing.

    No, they mean that jsut bbbbecause you've been pulled over doesn't mean you have to get a ticket, BUT, that could deepend on your attitude.

    They mean police are HUMAN. Being a jerk will NEVER make anything better for you. To the extent they would have gone easy on you, being a jerk tends to give them reason not to let you off easy.

    You have hit the nail on the head!

    They want you to lick their ***, while they have a hissy-fit like a 2 year old and scream at you.

    I have learnt one lesson in life, and that is respect always a one way situation; mutual respect is a fallacy, and trying to get it, in like trying find unicorns to fly you to the moon.

      Just standing on your civil rights , showing cops The Law or just saying No to an illegal order is enough to trigger one of these bullies to say UR "belligerent". That is the Problem.. Do we need holographic lawyers we can summon up to show them to their faces the rules?

    If you treat someone nice, it is more likely they will treat you nice. That advice applies to everyone, not just cops.

      I'd like to see a link that can validate your estimate of 33%. The stats I've seen are much higher.

    The majority of the police and the sheriff are on a power trip! Don't go around flashing what you think are your rights! Because quite honestly unless you have a piss load of money you don't have any rights! The police well handcuffed you take you to jail and put you in a jail cell and you won't see a judge for a year-and-a-half except for first appearance in the meantime the people that run the jail will make sure that you get beat up daily by other prisoners! You will be lucky to escape with your life! Don't make the police or the sheriff mad treat them with great respect if you want to live! They have guns lots of them and lots of people that have the guns! And they make the law any which way they want to! Don't even think about talking back or fighting! If you have a piss load of money and just want to waste it you go right ahead and play your constitutional rights!

      Stevie: So, in this city, 66.666% were bad cops. That is "significant." If Just One exception can be shown, your statement is logically false.
