  • Go to court perhaps?
  • Break up fights, respond to thefts, secure sites for many reasons. There is a lot.
  • I guess they train more at being jackasses. It would explain their general behaviour.
  • They have regular shifts and work days like other employees in other fields, including trainings, briefings, court appearances, paperwork and patrols.
  • Protect you.
  • Try to catch the bad guy's in between The c and d's.
  • Make women like me lust for them by flaunting the uniform :)
  • And what do idiots like you do all day besides go around stereotyping peoples professions?
  • Hassle quasi-innocent motorists like me! ;-)
  • Watch me ;)
  • They also sleep alot behind your local supermarket! ;-)
  • write reports. many many police reports.
  • What makes you think they are sleeping,didn't they just finish confiscating your drugs and beer?
  • First thing they do, try to find an excuse to arrest the victim for anything. At least in PA that is. PSP
  • They do have quite a lot to do and it is all dangerous like patrolling, raids in very difficult areas, traffic and escort government officials among others. Regards.
  • Read the news paper and pick their noses behind it.
  • Shoot.....................then ask questions.
  • act like their doing something.
  • Hope to get home at the end of their shift.
  • beat skaters
  • PLAY ON ANSWERBAG ON THE TAXPAYERS DOLLAR :)
  • Book people for going 3 mph over the speed limit,confiscate drink,drugs for there xmas party
  • I hate donuts, so I hand out extra tickets to people like you.
  • Sit on the side of the road and wait for me to go speeding past so they can write me a big, fat ticket.
  • The thing that bothers me the most is when someone commits a criminal act and the police want to tell me it is a civil case. This happens all the time when a tenant commits a minor criminal act. The first thing they say is that it is civil.
  • What about this? LMAO!
  • This kind of thing: http://www.kten.com/Global/story.asp?S=5090694
  • In my neighborhood, here in NYC, I assure you they are neither handing out tickets nor eating donuts. They have unarmed traffic police for tickets. The actual police are out there in the line of fire, 24/7, and believe me, it's no picnic for them. Rikers' Island (the NYC main lockup) is teeming with 60,000 of NYC's "finest", thanks in no small part to the efforts of regular beat cops, who are at risk every time they clock in for a shift, and make half the money that Nassau or Suffolk County(Long Island) cops make. I'm not a big fan of the police, but I have to admire their courage and dedication.
  • Whatever they want to.:(
  • ruin people's days
  • What do you mean!!! They put their lifes on the line every single day!!! Why did that guy get a ticket, ILLEGAL! come on! respect these guys!!
  • They put bad little punks in jail where they belong.
  • I never ate donuts.
  • They try to stay away from criminals that will shoot them. and look for other "easy money" basically they just hide in their car somewhere and occasionally sneak out to bust a speeder, once in a while they will not write a ticket... it makes them feel better about not being a complete thief all the time.
  • First of all statements like "What do cops do all day besides hand out tickets and eat donuts? is not worth repoding to or even wasting my time, but i have to. What about mixing eating donuts and putting their life on the line, can you ask your self why cops eat donuts and put their life on the line protecting and serving every community in the U.S., from country to country, state to state, county to county, city to city, community to community, come on now give our heros in my mind some credit. Respect does who go out of their way to make this world a better place for all of us to live in. Yes the world isnt perfect, but dumb statements like "What do cops do all day besides hand out tickets and eat donuts?" are totaly un called for and are a waste of my time.
  • Think of smart ass answers like the one im going to give to you. ***Next time you need help call a crack head when someone is jackin your ride, stickin you up at gun point, raping your little one, murdering your sister, when the gang is beating you down for wearing a wrong color in "their" neighborhood, your house is on fire, you crash into a tree, your dad is beating your mother, the crazy bitch is trying to cut your dingle dangels off, you find your cat has been nailed to a tree... I could keep going, however, I think you get the point. You hate cops? Why call us then...
  • Im pretty sure that not all cops eat doughnuts. You can blame the film industry for making them look like lazy doughnut eaters.
  • sit on there ass
  • Ever had a fight with your boyfriend/girlfriend? Its called domestic violence. These type calls take up about 2/3rds of an officers shift. There is a lot more involved in police work than issuing citations and eating donuts. We have accountability. we have to account for every minute of every shift we are on duty, thanks to computers. Its not like old policing use to be. You may see an officer still eating a donut. but, i gurarantee he is eating it between calls.
  • Most cops dont write that many tickets. That is a job for traffic cops. Real cops arrest bad guys and protect the community. They dont eat donuts anymore either. They switcheded to bagels a long time ago...
  • Television has made a mockery out of the police and eating doughnuts. we may have a doughnut every once in a while, but most officers do not eat doughnuts at all. This is my 2nd Answer. For those that have written critical comments toward the police, in this question, i say do not judge the police, unless you have had the opportunity to ride in a police vehicle, to observe the real life workings of an officer. Every other day there is court to attend for the citations issued or for criminal court for the bad guys we arrested that stole your car. and, lets not forget about the traffic accidents that officers now have to answer, in addition to domestic calls and for that drunk that just kicked in your back door. most of us usually have to eat on the run, because there are not enough of us to take a 30 minute lunch break, at one time. someone has to stay in service to answer the calls. one call can last 3-4 hours if a person is arrested and booked. Lets talk about traffic stops. lets suppose you are the officer and you are stopping a car for speeding. inside the vehicle are 4 subjects. at this point, you do not know if they are gang members, wanted for a homocide or just a family. you are faced with a complete unknown. this is where an officer gets assaulted or killed in many cases. you say, why not just let them go? if police officers backed off because of being scared, then the criminals would really run the country. this stop happens to be a family. you give a warning and they are gone. In this job, its the unknown that gives officers ulcers and near death situations. this is also why officers have problems with their hearts. We do much more than just eat doughnuts. most officers now have college degrees. GPS on each police vehicle tells our location 24/7. it also tells if our bluelights are operating, our speed, and some have onboard cameras. and, onboard computers constantly remind us of waiting calls and emails. Being a police officer is not coffee and doughnuts anymore. its professional accountability to the government and to the public. Please do not judge police officers, until you have walked a mile in their shoes.
  • Patrol and keep safe the wealthier neighborhoods.
  • Stupid question.
