Top Ten Biggest Reasons People Hate Police


The Top Ten

1 They are working for the politicians and not for the people.

Police are not out to serve and protect the people. They aren't watching over us the people, they are simply watching the people. I have recently bumped into police and was without a valid reason arrested and put into a holding cell no questions asked. Never mind the saying "innocent until proven guilty". From the moment they arrested me I was not aloud a phone call and what I said to prove my innocence was ignored From the holding cell I was brought straight to prison where I stayed for a night. Not until the next day could I make a call or get help. I couldn't believe what was going on but I choose to keep my mouth shut and later was released. I pay my taxes and work full time. I still can't believe what I have to go through to prove my innocence. Not all police lie but in this case I have a list of four police who lied to make it seem they had reasonable grounds to arrest me. All-in-all this is why I can't stand police. Us the people should be able to come to terms with our own ...more

On July 9 2011 and April 28 2012, Malaysians held a massive rallies in Kuala Lumpur calling for a free and fair election. They've the right to do so because Article 10 (1) (a) and (b) of the Federal Constitution states that Malaysians have the rights to assemble peacefully without weapon and to express their opinion and ideas.

But, the rallies were deemed illegal by police who worked for the Government.

And guess what, 100000 Malaysians were attacked with tear gas and chemical-laced water by police who were paid with taxpayer's money. - Fazrin

Yep just like the mafia men working for the boss. The police thugs probably tell themselves things like filing a false charge on a suspect for kicks is somehow helping society but deep down they know they are in the wrong, besides politicians fund any thing that the police want to do to look tough on crime and 99.9% of court judges will defend any action that a cop takes no matter how insane.

An increasingly militarized police force is definitely contributing to an increasingly tyrannic us government. A "police state" is what the usa has become. When your system of being promoted is by busting as many people as possible, of course people will despise you. Cops are not out there for our safety they are out there to bust us and be promoted.

2 They think they can talk and treat you however they want

Seriously, I was in a horrible wrench and because I said a cuss word, and nothing else mind you, I got threatened by a cop to be thrown in jail because I used a cuss word. I mean really. Obviously he has an ego and thinks he is a god! I hate cops. Egotistical asses, if you don't like your job maybe find another one, I mean I can't help you live a miserable life and get paid between $20-30 thousand a year. Losers! Just about all of them that I have ever met have a chip on their shoulder too. Not to mention the little 17 year old girl whom hit me totaled my car so of course I cussed.

They expect you to talk and treat them with respect when they look down and treat us unfairly. I have never been properly in trouble with them but I just generally feel like they are awful intimidating people


i called to report abuse at home and not only did they turn against me all depressed that I already was they blamed me and told me to shut up! They were talking to me very rude and I did not deserve that treatment after that they just said go solve the issues yourselves and I was abused again and again after that and they didn't come to my house when I called 2 times. They did not tell me about my rights and they even violated them and once they lied that I could not talk over the phone which was my right at the moment cause someone (abuser) got me into a stupid situation they treated me like crap and I felt like nothing with their treat, not even a dog, they caused me even more trauma I wished they die to be honest. There was one good cop once (young one) but all the old hope they die soon I don't know I mean I can't help it but feel ew and hate towards them it fair its what they deserve

They lie about your speedong

3 They're stupid.

As a black teenager... You see where I am going don't you. I work 2 days a week and study for 5. I live with my parents, and walk my dog (a Pomeranian for Christs sake) each day. My choice musician is Mozart followed by Buddy Holly, and when I graduate I hope to be a Lawyer. Yet my family is not rich and we don't live in the best zone. As a result, I have to justify my mere presence to a police officer about once a week, and have three times been taking to a station for questioning with no charge laid or appropriate information given to me. It's not in the interests of public safety, it's just easier to take another black boy in than to try to tackle the big issues in our society.

What you are saying makes no sense. Police can't just do mental commitments because someone has previously been committed. His driving May have been erratic but this is not grounds for a commitment. You on the other hand who claims to be smart would know you could go right to court and explain to a judge why your whacked out husband should be committed and that judge would probably grant that psych evaluation then the Police could take him directly to the gospital with out having to prove he is crazy because it's court ordered. Sounds like you are stupid and the Police had no grounds at that time to commit your crazy husband! Your point was not made so try another to get it across to us college educated cops who have to deal with more in a week than you will in your life time at your lame desk job!

Most of the cops I've encountered appear too dense to get any sort of "real" job. Where I live, they are just a bunch of thick-necked, ignorant, pompous (with seriously no reason to be) jerk-offs with nothing better to do than screw with people and try to demand respect that they haven't earned and honestly don't deserve. What a waste of tax money!

4 They're criminals in disguise

They've hurt me and hog-tied me and threw me on the ground when all they had to do was restrain me and put me in their car. They lie - the police report was FULL of lies. They interrogated and messed with me when I was minding my own business, doing nothing illegal. They're stupid, pulled me over at dusk because my headlights weren't on. Made me do that "follow the tip of my pen with your eyes" test, which I complied with, 100 % sober then called my husband to pick me up instead of just following me to make sure I got home okay. What if they wouldn't have been able to get in touch with my husband? Would I go to jail for not having my lights on while I was 2 blocks away from home?

Or would they have driven me home and let my car get impounded? Once I got arrested and they told my 14 YO son to drive my car home (which he did).

Because I'm a fit and witty white guy, cops that have spent time around me inevitably try to impress me with their work stories- which include harassing homeless people and motorists and they think it's hysterical. I personally have not had problems with police when I have been pulled over for speeding but then it happened- the king dickhead of the police moved across the street from me. Things started out friendly and has escalated into him actually stealing my kids toys from my yard. There have been several instances of him trying to hit on everyone's wives (they tell on him because he is a creep. He has wife and young child- 2nd wife by the way ) and it's basically to the point where I want to bash his head in. I know there isn't a point to filing a complaint- if they can get away with beating and shooting people for no reason, nobody cares about a perverted thief. So yeah I've been around enough to see cops are not the good citizens they pretend to be.

Instead of acting in compliance with the law, they act as if they are above the law. They think it is okay to beat people up, threaten people, or force someone to confess a crime they did not commit.

Yes I agree with your opinion😊👑

5 They beat you during interrogation.

While I was in jail they beat an inmate severely and told us all to keep our mouths shut, or else. I reported.that to and nothing was ever done. Scares me seeing how they are so protected above the criminals because they know they are above the law and the, people.

Probably because you committed a crime, do you expect people to be nice to a criminal - ShyGuySwag

Not true their just as bad here in Canada.

If you see an officer abuse anyone you should file a complaint. Every law enforcement department has an internal affairs bureau to investigate allegations of abuse.

In India they are satans

6 They hate black people

It's a shame that racism is kept in the forefront by the media and criminal organizations such as BLM. Don't be fooled. There will always be bias and prejudices against people and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. It's human nature. Not every officer is perfect just as not every person is perfect. It's life. If you get pulled over just comply with the officer. You will never know how it feels to be in an officers shoes until you wear them. You can't please anyone and it's so easy for ignorant people to sit idle and second guess about every action an officer takes. We have all been stopped by an officer including myself. When you need an officer they will always be there for you. If you can't deal with life then get a coloring book, companion pet, play dough, and cry like the adolescent you are.

A black man has A.000023 percent chance of being killed by an officer, a black man is more likely to die to another black man then to an officer. look it up. a large percent of the police force are made of African Americans or any other race. it's the media's fault.

Exactly, you may here of 3 or 4 a year, but there are so many people in america, more than that get killed in shootings every year. It's not fair for cops to be portrayed like that, so maybe, don't hate on them unless you know what the heck you're talking about - turtle_splash

Exactly. The stupid BLM is meant to terrorize the police and the people they serve. It's a disgusting liberal main stream media lie that is meant to tear communities apart and make police officer's lives much harder. If you want to believe it, go cry with others like you in a dark room with therapy dogs and cats, and console yourselves. It's time you got a life, and stop stereo typing our men and women in blue. Try putting on their shoes before you attack and insult a entire profession based on a few stories that are probably so far fetched and stupid.

7 They think they own you

Yes, the police in Atlanta talk down to all citizens like they are your master.

You are very, very, very correct. Atlanta policemen are the reason why my mom's wedding ring was stolen. - Juan-Luis

They either had a warrant or you opened your front door consenting them to search

They are losers by thinking they own you. I don't care to those people.

8 They're more annoying than math teachers.

What's wrong with math teachers?

This is true cause they're all trying to catch you doing something wrong and asking butt loads of questions.

I know right like once they killed a dog fractured a guys leg for no reason put a guy in jail for dancing put a guy in jail for skate boarding arrested two people for kissing/making out and pulled a guy out of his car for no reason they do that to get paid they even strangled a child and put kids in jail

9 They always want to be right

They always are right because they can lie without punishments.

Police is showing off their power and people are getting frightened from them. Which is not right. Tell those bastards that your law tells you to be equal, but it isn't equal, because you can do anything without getting arrested.

They were trained maybe they know maybe you're the one that's not use to hearing something about yourself that's true and maybe you have no respect

True. Especially being misunderstood and not allowing you to explain your side of the story. Which is pretty messed up

10 Police in third world countries make money by taking bribes.

Who can blame them, when they make more money in a week by taking bribes than they do in a whole year of honest work. Would you really turn that offer down, if you had a wife and five children at home to feed, and everyone else was doing it too? Don't tell me you have that kind of will.

I can't even blame them because they are probably struggling to support their families, but it is wrong!

So true, especially in Egypt

Police in first world countries take bribes or bi's same diff.

The Newcomers

? They use annoying sirens near your house

The Contenders

11 They arrive on the crime scene after the story is over

In a perfect world there would be an officer on every corner to respond to every call within seconds. In your world there is traffic, other calls, limited officers and resources, and safety concerns. Of course it takes time for an officer to arrive. When I go to your work and order a burger why does it take 15 minutes to get it? This just goes to prove that you have no sense of reality and you would rather whine and complain than to help solve the problem. I am sure if there were an officer on every corner you would complain that they were there watching you all the time.

The pizza delivery guy is faster!

I agree, I hate the police

Yeah the 30 minute rule

12 They're mean

I drive an old 1998 Ford Ranger, the four cylinder engine is tired and screams at 60 mph. I just was issued a ticket in a parking lot where the cop pulled in behind me and told me I was doing 58 in a 45. I was so surprised at his claim that I began asking where, what, how? He didn't care a bit about my questions and ask for my driver's licence and registration. As he was writing the ticket, I began recalling where he thought he had me. I remembered seeing him pull aside at the change of speed limit, and recalled my situation of two cars about my position at that time. One was barreling behind me and the other passing me. I can only assume that the cop actually clocked the passing car, but because I pulled into a parking lot nearby, he picked me rather than going after the true speeding vehicle. Thus, I was surprised at his claim.

I have not had a ticket in years, decades...but this guy wasn't listening. I became very angry and started yelling at the cop. I told him he was ...more

I just got a $600 ticket for forgetting to renew my insurance. I forgot because my mother was a diagnosed with cancer. This ass could have given me a warning as I have only had one ticket in 25 years of driving but didn't want ro and I had to pay $90 to be towed less than five mins away to an insurance office instead of allowing me to go home and renew it. If there is such a thing as karma I hope he has the weekend he deserves

They gave me a $50 ticket for a dead headlight, they are not intending to help, but intending to punish and earn the ticket money for whoever they serve.

Oh please tell me

13 They are racist

Police in Atlanta Georgia are extremely prejudice. They act like they are the higher class, not for the people, but control the people.

Some of them arrest foreigners for no reason

South Park policeman: The next time we arrest a criminal make sure he's black.

Everyone is racist to some extent. Get over it and open your eyes to reality.

14 They abuse their power

It's fun to abuse people under the color of authority. Give me a break. Just like everything else in life there are bad officers among the good officers and the bad ones should be fired and held accountable for abuse. Grouping every officer in one category is ludicrous and an idiotic immature ignorant statement. Nothing is absolute except death.

They work for the law but because of that they think that they are above the law. A police thinks he's living in a police state and he has forgotten that he lives in a democratic country. Meaning that the people decides who is in charge of laws.

I've heard of cops persecuting homeless people for no reason,

That badge gives them the right to do any illegal activity with no reprocussions

15 They yell

Who can blame them? They deal with thick-skulled morons all day who make dumb lists about them!

A lot of them yell at you for no reason, some of them do respect but a lot of them have no rights to be yelling at people for no reason especially to people who didn't do nothing

Most people can't hear officers. It's a disease that scientist can't figure out a cure. Also officers can't hear so they yell thinking you can't hear. My response is just as stupid as the statement "They yell"

They yell like someone has punched their face. If someone has committed offense its not your problems you are yelling like someone has raped you.

16 They harass innocent people

I have personally been pulled over because of my last name and questioned about people in my family. What gives the police the right to just do that if I'm not breaking any laws how can you pull me over and question me and what if I don't comply or if your not satisfied what are you gonna do put me in jail beat me kill me. The police are sneaky they are liars and really are scary. I was telling them I didn't know haven't seen them and they was searching for anything they could to get me in trouble yet their damnest to intimidate me. I hate the police so much.

That's goddam true


17 Handcuffs

Just going to not restrain this criminal here... oh look at that he is escaping. how could this be?! if only there was an invention to make my life easier and safer as an officer of the law. then the handcuffs were born. don't DO THE CRIME IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE THE PUNISHMENT (in fact don't do crime at all)

Also the comment below me says, "I was arrested once for the smallest thing, peeing in a bush. I begged the him to let me free but he didn't. I put my hands behind my back and the sound that they make! It's the worst sound and makes you feel doomed."

peeing in a bush. you do understand that's a crime. and however I don't agree with arrest you still made judgement peeing in a bush. and that's YOUR FAULT stop complaining about punishment for action and don't do the crime.

I was arrested once for the smallest thing, peeing in a bush. I begged the him to let me free but he didn't. I put my hands behind my back and the sound that they make! It's the worst sound and makes you feel doomed.

Well if you must be silly and try to resist arrest... - Britgirl

I agree!

18 They profile you based on what you look like

Just because I'm fat ugly & dress like a hoodlum doesn't make me a bad person but due to my. Rough childhood I dress like a hoodlum to get people to leave me alone. I also have trust issues because of all the lies told about me...

There are these 10 terrible things about them, but other than that they do a wonderful job

Get a therapist because you have issues dude.

19 They stop blacks for no reason

Bigotry in society sick

The police are racist

20 They do not respond to calls, especially during night time

Although this site is somewhat sarcastical... It's SO, SO TRUE.. Sociologists have studied the personalities of people attrcted to police work... And the findings were that the majority had a high level of criminality, inferiority complex, bullying history, jealousy of more successful people, minimilly intelligent, brutal, power tripping.. And because they carry a gun & badge, dangerous to society...

They refuse to respond for over 10 years now because I filed a complaint when they refused reports on a burglary, and talked down to me telling me to shut up and not call them when I'm robbed anymore. They said the calls go on record and make them look bad. Crooked cops.

Everyone is so quick to pull the they think there so bad because we carry badges and guns but were not we don't get respected and when someone thinks they know something a don't respect the authorities it's a problem. Also that's a lie cause in south Florida we like night shift there's actually stuff to do maybe yore not the only problem we have to take care of that night

It's too scary to respond to calls at night. Why would they want to do that? It's all dark outside and cold. What a moronic statement. You are so clueless it's disturbing.
