  • Maybe,you should have formulated question diferently - DID YOU HAD ANY BAD EXPIRIENCE with the old bill...
  • No. As I've a number of relatives in said positions, I know I should always have a lawyer present whensoever I'm talking to one.
  • I trust no one...no legal person no justice person...no one can be trusted...everyone has a price
  • Not particularly, no.
  • Yes why wouldnt I?
  • Not wholeheartedly... they're just people right. Some of them are fantastic and trustworthy, others are completely bent.
  • I remember police officers being nice to me for the most part. The one and only time I remember seeing them harsh in my presence is when I was with a group of people who were smoking weed. My sister and I weren't, but other people we were with were. No surprise there. I do trust the police in general. The thing I don't like is when they protect themselves and cover for each other when they know another police officer has done wrong, though. However, that's typical behaviour in any group of people. It's not unique to police officers.
  • No I do not!! they answer to a government that seems to spent most of the time digging itself out of in house corruption & dodgy scams, the police force IMO is just another money making scam of the present Labour government, the policy of which seems to be increasing fines rather than meeting out real justice!! :-/
  • Not really. I've met some nice cops but they seem to have an "us and them" attitude. Meaning they see only law enforcers and law breakers. I haven't had any difficulties with them but I don't completely trust them either.
  • I am Caucasian and NO I don't trust police.
  • There will always be corrupt people in any large organisation, the police are no different. My cousin is a police officer and a guy I went to secondary school/high school with is also one, but I'm still careful what I say to them when I'm talking them. At the end of the day, a cop is cop from the moment they put that uniform on until the day they retire.
  • not especielly.
  • I am a white person. I am the police. I trust myself.
  • Sure,out here in the boonies they are answerable to any scrutiny and they do their jobs as needed,take down the trouble makers,pass out DUI's,arrest speeders,basically keep things safe for those of us who have respect for the rules of society.
  • I trust the police to a extent, but will they screw me over on something unimportant... probably
  • I have never had a reason to distrust them.
  • It's not the police so much as how the money dictates their policy.
  • I put my trust into individuals not groups. I trust them until they give me a reason not to, and I don't let one cop bring down my opinion of another. I also know when they fail to bring justice it is because they have a crap-ton of bureaucracy they have to manage, most people in my area bitch that they don't do anything, they are somewhat right, but the Canadian government is backwards and easy on crime.
  • i guess, ive had no problem with them...
  • Some yes, some no. Either way, what am I gonna do about it? :/
  • Personally, I loathe the term "white". I am not white. Notebook paper is white. There are lots of People of Mexican heritage where I live. I am the same tone if not darker than most of them. Does that make me brown? No. I also Loathe the term "Caucasian", do you know what that word means? As for your answer, by in large, I believe most people trust the police. No matter what heritage and or background they have. It is only a select few, whiners - liberals and the like. They like to feed on negativity. If a politician can convince you that you should be afraid of something and or someone. They can convince you that you need them to protect you. This is why racism flourishes in America. It is an organization. If we have Racism, we need a task force and a lobbyist to determine why we have racism. If we have racism, we need DSHS and other government groups to assist those who are singled out. Sorry, I am ranting here. I am not white, I am American and damn proud of it. PS, did you look up Caucasian and see what it means. It includes everyone.
  • No, I do not. They've given me every reason to distrust them.
  • no, too many of the ones i see are untrustyworhty in my opinion.
  • 2nd Answer. It never ceases to amaze me that the people that critize the police are usually the first to call 911 when they or a family member have an emergency.
  • Some people's answers are just NO, yet they never give a reason why they do not trust the police. I would love to read their justification for not trusting the police.
  • No I do not alot of them around my area seem to belive they are the law not enforcing it. They act like they control us, if they ask us to get in the car we have to, even if we have done nothing. Most of them are on a power trip and have the right to tell people how to act. They are loud obxnoxiouse and are bigger criminals than the criminals in our area. My hole street have banded together and craeated a communtiy of people to protect each other, the polce say this is unacceptable, we have no choice if we want them or not. We have told them we will not call them in an emergency but this is not our decision to make. I cannot explain everything on here but to make it simple I o not trust the pigs and the communtiy should have more choice in the way they work or atleast who works for them. They work for us, We do not work for them.
  • Generally speaking, yes. But then I live in Texas where the police are usually respected, and where most of them are relatively well-trained in dealing with the public.
  • I hate saying White and black ) we all humans ! no differences ! STOP racial discrimination !
  • They have never given me a reason not to, but I live in a Barney Fife type of policed town......
  • Sure. Was on the job for 16 years.
  • As an anti-authoritarian, hell no. I'm sure that individual police are nice people and all, and I've met a few that were fine, upstanding citizens. But I've also had some bad experiences with them, and have heard some truly horrific stories about their abuse of power. If you'll pardon the multi-layered and rather dorky quote: "Who watches the watchmen?"
