My mother's side of the family are cops (my grandfather for 40 years, my uncle and aunt retired from KCPD, my step dad). I grew up around the PD. I've been in the KCPD helicopter, I've met the canines, my uncle did crime scene investigation). I know cops pretty well (it's saved my ass on more than one occasion).
Being a police officer is not a high stress job unless you make it one.
Well no, it certainly isnt horseshit, i'll take your word for what you say but dont tell me i dont know what the hell i'm talking about.
No most cops dont have to pull their pistol, but i've heard many tales of someone else trying to pull their gun on them in a scuffle, or dealing with some bs code of silence while trying to solve a murder, or seeing how people raise their kids up close, eight year old kids with custom t-shirts that say on the back "i aint afraid a no po-po" hell one guy i met who was from a bad neighborhood and chose to live there after becoming a cop had his daughter gangraped... so **** you for calling bs on the fact that many of those guys see and deal with some bad stuff every single day.
It will harden a man and make him very aggressive.
