PoliceOne Member Comments of the Year

PoliceOne members have plenty to say in response to our news stories, tips and articles. Here are a few of the most memorable comments from the past year:

"The innocent cousin of the emu, Big Bird, has claimed harassment and profiling because of their large, feathery size. Attorney Foghorn Leghorn will represent the family in the civil rights lawsuit."
TASER ends emu scamper on Penn. highway

"Is that a loaded AK-47 in your pants...or are you just glad to see me! Just when you think you have heard it all. "
Calif. officer kills man with loaded AK-47

"'Be friendly, be kind, but always have a plan to kill everyone you meet!'... I'm not sure who said this but it sums up the mindset that an officer must have to survive. I believe most suspects respect firmness, fairness, and professionalism. We're not trying to make friends with anyone or win the department's 'Ms. Congeniality' award."
Behavior traits that get cops killed: Long known, still ignored

"When the economy is bad it means, less jobs, lost jobs, decrease of income, lost families, and a higher crime rate. So naturally you would cut your public safety. Someone tell the mayor it's raining and to come inside."
N.Y. drops cop class to cut spending
