Another Reason to Pity the Police: Mundanes Don't Get Their Jokes

by Will Grigg

In Denver, prior to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, the local police union distributed T-shirts depicting a fearsome, nightstick-wielding police figure arising from the skyline surrounded by a caption reading: “We get up early to BEAT the crowds.” In New York, police unions have distributed shirts showing a young boy behind bars, with a caption reading “U raise ‘em, we cage ‘em.”

Another popular t-shirt inscription for New York police is a quote from Ernest Hemmingway: “There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.” Yet another police union t-shirt declares: “Police – My job is to protect your a**, not kiss it.”

Doug Wyllie, Editor in Chief of PoliceOne magazine, criticized officers who wear such shirts - -not because of the attitude they convey, but because they give “people who dislike police officers additional fodder for their anti-cop rhetoric.” The problem, according to Wyllie, is that the lesser beings who constitute the public at large “simply won’t understand police humor.”

No, Mr. Wyllie. We understand it perfectly.

9822 I like these shirts, a little bit of refreshing honesty from the police department. We know that many officers despise members of the general public, as exemplified by the use of the officers Beserker type war-cry, "Stop Resisting Arrest" that they generally employ as they bellow at the object of their disdain, often curled in a fetal position at their feet.
At least when they wear these they are identifying themselves as as the officers who view themselves as caste level above mere mortals.

75145 Everybody is doing what they can get away with.

If I personally see such t-shirt, I would say this: do you think this shirt is appropriate? have you forgotten who is paying your salary? how about you take it off, you f@cking sh@tbag? (the dirty speech is protected as long as it does not cause public disturbance).

Everybody is afraid to open their mouth, then go and vent on blogs. Guess what, the police does not read these blogs. At least go and register at and speak up there. I did, and I had there some nasty discussions, with threats, but then some of them took my side there. That's what you should do if you really want to make a change - speak up and confront their wrongdoing. You won't believe how quick they are to retreat.

Is there a risk? yes there is. But then there are very few things in life worth pursuing that don't have any.
