I didnt mean it in a derogatory way. My husband is a law enforcement officer and yes he works hard and really doesn't get paid enough for what he does. But many people are afraid of the cops or afraid to call them because they don't want to be thought of as annoying, troublemakers, or "tattletales". So I was just trying to point out that it is ok to contact them about this.
One side note... I wouldn't recommend the "my tax dollars pay your salary" argument with LEO or Emergency Services. That's not well received (if it's said or not) because we pay our salaries too.
Though that is typically reserved for the pampered sort who cuss you out and remind (read try to put you in your place) you that they pay your salary/are your boss when you refuse to send an officer to pick up their trash, in their yard, that a stray dog ripped into. It's amazing what falls under protect and serve to some people. They think serve = servant. When I'm here because I want to help people who need it. I'd say it having a stranger tell you that they pay your salary would not go over well with anyone.
This has been a PSA.
And to protect and serve is what they say in all of their pledges when they are sworn in.
I know you didn't. I don't mean that in a jump on you kind of way. Just don't the people idea's. lol. They use that one enough as it is.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
