    Been some 'bashing' of cops lately. We all know most are just doing a tough job, while getting little respect or thanks.
    Got this at another site.......

    When the Lord was creating police officers, he was into his sixth day of overtime, an angel appeared and said, “You’re doing a lot of fiddling around on this one”.
    And the Lord said,

    “Have you read the spec on this order? A police officer has to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn’t touch, and not wrinkle his uniform.”
    “He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses, and testify in court the next day.”
    “He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands.”

    The angel shook his head slowly and said,
    “Six pairs of hands…no way.”

    “It’s not the hands that are causing me problems,” said the Lord, “it’s the three pairs of eyes
    an officer has to have.”

    “That’s on the standard model?” asked the angel.
    The Lord nodded.

    “One pair that sees through a bulge in a pocket before he asks, “What’s in there, sir?” when he already knows and wishes he’d taken that accounting job.”

    “Another pair here in the side of his head for his partner’s safety. And another pair of eyes here in front that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say, “You’ll be all right ma’am, when he knows it isn’t so.”
    “Lord,” said the angel, touching his sleeve,
    “Rest now, and work on this tomorrow.”

    “I can’t,” said the Lord, “I already have a model. This model can talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident and feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck.”

    The angel circled the model of a police officer very slowly, “Can it think??” he asked.

    “You bet,” said the Lord. “It can tell you the elements of a hundred crimes. It can recite Miranda warnings in its sleep, detain, investigate, search, and arrest a gang member on the street in less time than it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop… and still it keeps its sense of humor.”

    “This officer also has phenomenal person control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in hell….coax a confession from a child abuser…comfort a murder victim’s family…and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn’t sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects.”

    Finally, the angel bent over and ran his finger across the cheek of the police officer.
    “There’s a leak,” he pronounced. “I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model.”
    “That’s not a leak,” said the lord, “it’s a tear.”
    “What’s the tear for?” asked the angel.
    “It’s for bottled-up emotions…for fallen comrades… for commitment to that funny piece of cloth
    called the American flag…and mostly for justice.”
    “You’re a genius,” said the angel.
    The Lord looked somber and said…
    ”I didn’t put it there…”
