Cops I've known
We had one AHP, down around the Mammoth, San Manuel area that would buy us a beer in the morning. But, come four o'clock when he went on shift, he became the law dog from hell. His message to us was, "I'll buy you a beer in the morning, but don't even let me find you with one on the road at night." If he did catch you with one: well, today he would get arrested for child abuse. Back then if he thumped you a little for being a smart mouth and took you to your dad and your dad found why he thumped you, you were probably gonna get thumped at home. He was on Tales of the Highway Patrol once. Later, after my brother got into law enforcement, he use to office with him in Mammoth, Ariz. A thumping is "just to get your attention" type whacking.
Now, around my home town there are more cops than there are people. The Globe/Miami area was determined to be good training area so now there are brazillions of them roaming around.
No matter, the modern kid is screwed anyway with that "NO TOLERANCE" crap. My granddaughter was walking from one class to another when a kid shoved his hand up her butt. She turned around and cracked him upside the head. Done deal, right? She gets arrested, gets a ticket, and has to go to court, costing her mother a total of two days work, and a big fine, plus taking her to community service.
