The Beatings Will Continue...

  • Philippine police officers were instructed Wednesday to smile in public or face suspension in an attempt to spruce up their image as rough and rude.

    The new guidelines were announced after one of the country's bloodiest weeks in crime. Ten people were lined up and shot dead in a bank robbery last week, and on Monday, a man went on a killing spree in a farming town that left eight residents dead.

    "We are encouraging policemen to be community friendly," police Director Leopoldo Bataoil said. "There is no place for rough and brusque officers in this organization."
Hey, it could work.

Hmmmm... left the Westside to give Lincoln Pk/Wrigleyville a try some years ago, it was a source of aggravation having some of the sheeple bleating about "why do you look so mean/why don't you smile?"

Well mr./ms. sheltered one, when you see people burn to skeletons in a building, bag & transport a 2mo. old 360lb corpse, see someone blow their brains out in front of you, fight for your & your partner's life in a pissy 13th fl. stairwell (& know only a fool would discharge his weapon in such a tight spot), interview some goof who used his girlfriend's young child as a 3-hole sex toy (wanna shoot but can't)... you tend not to smile at too much.

Of course mr./ms. sheltered one puts their fingers in their ears and go "LALALALAAA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!"

You civilians think policing is all shits & giggles... You're soft & weak on the Kool-Aid Daley & Co. have been serving you for years. You cry over a cougar but you won't say shit if you had a mouth full when the REAL PREDATORS come for you... Yes we took an oath to serve & protect... 99.9% of us take it seriously, you bleeding hearts have no idea that it is serious fucking business out here... when the time comes it's "live or die? kill or be killed?" Who do YOU want to show up when the devil is at your doorstep? "Please don't send those officers, they look too mean and their talk is too rough and hard, I'm afraid they'll hurt someone...can you send a supervisor?" We are the Chicago motherfuckin' POLICE!! We are not here to be your friends or pat you on the ass or help you feel better about your personal inadequacies or shortcomings... (USMC Rules of Gun Fighting, "Polite to everyone, friendly to no one...")

Please stay safe officers, there will be blood this summer... meanwhile... "pea soup green chevy w/1 whitewall tire & 4 diff. hubcaps for 5$ from maxwell st..."

Implement F.A.P.S., the Filipino Alternative Policing Strategy, in the Phillipines.

Let CeaseFire march in Manila.

Problem solved!

It takes more muscles to frown, therefore smiling is akin to laying down on the job

Keep those facial muscles in shape by frowning. J-Fed wants us to get buffed up

I want to see all CPD officers smiling everywhere I look...
And a beer in your hand also.

I am not sure I care much if cops smile a whole lot or not.

I do expect a certain level of professional demeanor.

It would not hurt the image of the CPD if the average police offcier were to be a little more friendly in dealing with the average citizen.

Back in the day, particularly when I made constant street stops in Fillmo', I always approached the occupant(s) with a pleasant smile on my face--and drawn blue steel in plain view.

While a partner did kill and saved our lives, God bless his soul, I never shot anyone.

It still infuriates me whenever I think about the grief that demagogic scoundrel Meeks caused Sgt. Clifford.

What ever happened to saps and hardwood batons, preferably in cocobolo? We never left the squad without one.

How about the 'average' citizen being a 'little more' friendly when 'dealing' with the 'average' police officer?

Or even when dealing with the other 'average' citizens?

Maybe that might help the 'image' of the 'average' citizen.

"average citizen" ??

Got a flash for you brainiac. We deal very little with the "average citizen". You hired us to police the trash so you could pretend they don't exist. The slime on the street see a friendly smile and a wave as a sign of weakness. They are predators and like the 4-legged hunters on the Discovery Channel the 2 legged ones look for the weak.

I'm not a bad guy. I really don't want to 'be mean'. Oh, maybe I'll smile and wave back at you. But if I don't, maybe its because I didn't see you. Or I was paying more attention to some shitbag sizing up your purse.

Try and get through life somehow anyway, OK?

don't necessarily disagree with you on that.

the problem is that you kill yourself by treating the 95% of the citizenry that isn't slimy like they are.

people remember for years the bad experiences they had with cops. just the way things are.

if you piss off the good guys while trying to police the bad guys, you will ultimately lose the battle.

You're not the brightest star in the sky, are you?

The comment referred to was mocking the comment it referred to.

As in, to spell it out for you, those citizens who lament the perceived lack of friendliness in police officers would do better to consider the actual lack of friendliness in the non-police citizens they have far more contact with than cops.

That being said, the response from "6/02/2008 12:22:00 PM" clarified the intent of the original comment and does have merit.

After all, as you so enthusiastically pointed out, most citizens have no personal contact with the police, other than traffic stops and when they've become a victim of the predators you refer to.

And many to most citizens are still too mentally lazy to do anything other than believe what they're fed by the media and the politician's propaganda machine.

When you find the way to hunt the predators without becoming like them, you won't find it difficult to smile at your fellow citizens, the ones who aren't predators.

And they, in turn, may better appreciate your service and you.
