I doubt that most police officers who work in quiet suburbs and small towns have someone trying to kill them every day (most city cops dont either, but much less so in the sticks).

Being an officer is an incredibly stressful job and I respect every cop in america, including those that kill blacks and make headlines. *tips cap*

Yeah it's why so many make up for that deep seeded fear with over the top bravado and psycopath personalities.

And I say that as someone who has as much respect for them as the deserve.

Keyword is deserve.
