Becoming a cop...

edited February 2011 in For The Grown & Sexy
Living in Charlotte and just decided i want to become a cop...my associate degree in computer networking will be my plan B, but right now im focused on being a cop...I want to know if anybody has any ideas on what its like...

Before niccas start sayin dumb shit:

Im 6'0 and played defensive linemen in high school( built for it)

I was raised in a community full of poverty(street smart)

And i figure that i could make a difference(understanding the struggle, not looking through eyes of judgement)

    1st shitting on the "hood" & 2nd arrogance is key to being a successful cop, you are halfway there, oh yeah most cities and/or towns require an associate degree in criminal justice, so start taking classes prior to joining you'll be a step ahead of the rest

    cops dont even fight crime no more.. all them niggas do now is write tickets..

    but it kills me how niggas say the same shit goin in (wantin to make a difference) shit's admirable but 9 x's outta 10 that shit aint happenin.. basically its like a nigga sayin he go join the gang to protect his hood.. and truth be told thats how gangs started.. and shit.. cops are the biggest gangs out there..

    so in summation.. FUCK THE POLICE!!!

    Dont do it...I only say that because from what Ive seen, only one of two things will happen. Im going thru this shit with my brother now, he is older than I am and I cannot believe the changes that have already occurred after 4-5 years on the job.

    You will either A.) Completely change as a person. Your views of what is right and wrong will change from being surrounded by the same like-minded individuals. Im not talking peer-pressure like HS and College, Im talking real-life situations where you wont have a choice. And once you cross that line, there is no going back. You will feel the power you have...it will 100% go to your head in areas that you subconsciously will not even recognize. You WILL treat people different, those closest to you...friends...girls, your boys, whatever. You will become hardened to life to the point that you will lose certain areas of emotion (which may or may not be good), and it will be difficult to ever get them back. I lost two real close relatives this past year, and was shocked by his coldness. It wasnt like he didnt care...it was like he didnt know how to show he cared, other than the typical "this is life, everyone dies at some point" type BS.

    or B.) You will realize all this shit 1 year into the job and will quit, and will make you hate cops even more than you do today.

    If you want to make a difference, get into Community Relations or Community Activism. Truth be told, even if you manage to do some great work...no one will appreciate it, and appreciation may not be what you are out for, but it helps in making the life livable from day to day.

    that shit's a fucking job....seriously homie.. it's just a job...

    u look at it as anymore than a job... u fucking up

    the second u get caught up in anything that makes it more than a job.. u going to see your whole life slip away from you...

    this is only from personal experience though...from people i know in law enforcement....but out of those people, the only ones that are cool are the ones who know how to turn that shit on and off when they leave the job....

    if ur still a cop even when u not a work...u doing too much for 35K a year

    My boy was in class tryin to become and at the end of the semester the teacher told everyone you dont want to be a cop it's a miserable job it's mainly paper work horrible hours and everyone you see hates you.... Imagine how you feel when you get a ticket imagine ppl trying to bribe you.... Imagine being bitter and having to put up with everything being a cop is literally the most suicidal job in America. Why not become a fire fighter the job is far better you get a paid a little more and only have to take 1 year of classes If I wasnt making over 60k a year I would be a fire fighter and you get to help ppl without everyone hating u.

    it ain't even about looking down on it, but them dudes lose their personal identity in a job....shit's not cool...

    niggaz let that shit consume them....take over their lives and their family.....niggaz don't even think like regular people anymore...

    when u get that serious about anyjob, when it becomes a lively hood.. i just don'tthink it's a good look, it's not worth it IMO...

    if u can't turn that shit off...why sign up?
