You know people sometimes talk about the bad choices that police sometimes make. But you know they are under tremendous pressure and stress. They deal with situations none of the rest of us ever would have to, and they see the evil that men sometimes do. It's sad really. In fact they are one of the only professions that have to retire early for this reason, the great stress that they must face.
And I am not defending anyone's wrongful deeds. But you know they deal with some situations, no one else could ever tolerate. But someone should tell them, that can make you a better person too.
I sometimes think of my mother. She grew up during the Great Depression (I'll spare the trouble of doing the math—she had me in 1968, when she was 41). At one point, it looked like they were about to lose their house. At another, they had almost no food. But she told me, it was that adversity that made her a better person.
Now I am not justifying anyone's bad behavior. But you should never judge a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes. And as I said, it can in fact make you a better person, dealing with bad situations. And then you have the right to take so much more pride in yourself.
