    "Pick on" the police? I'm making this statement because some people have a very dangerous sense of authority worship, they trust authority figures more than they should, trust them more than they do "people in general."

    I sometimes wish you'd go ahead and change your type to ESFJ.

    That's because their country, in its entirety, is more civilized than our own.

    There are specific circumstances WHICH CREATE that wildness you see in places like New Orleans, Detroit, and Oakland....circumstances which are created by things like laws and politics.

    The prisons in Norway are also more humane than our own, just FYI.

    Hmmm, explain these laws and politics which force people into crime... I'm aware that there are crime problems here worse than places such as Norway, but it's because of poverty and a culture of crime coupled together which makes the problem so rampant in certain parts of the country. Crime breeds crime.

    If by Humane prison you mean treated so well that prisoners will become confused if they're serving a sentence or if they're on vacation, yeah... We need to adopt their ideas to host our rapists, murderers and child molesters. Fully agree!

    Would you mind exemplifying? I'm genuinely curious...

    Regarding motivations to become a cop - let's not forget a guaranteed starting salary of $80,000 a year - without any college education.
