"A COP ON THE TAKE"


"A COP ON THE TAKE"

First he takes ... the oath.
Now look at what else he takes:

He takes... it in stride when people call him pig.
He takes... his lousy pay check realizing he'll
never be rich.
He takes... a second job sometimes to make ends meet
and support his family.
He takes... time to stop and talk to children.
He takes... your verbal abuse while giving you a
ticket you really deserved.
He takes... on creeps you would be afraid to even look at.
He takes... time away from his family to keep you safe.
He takes... your injured child to the hospital.
He takes... the graveyard shift without complaint
because it's his turn.
He takes... his life into his hands daily.
He takes... you home when your car breaks down.
He takes... time to explain why both your headlights
have to work.
He takes... the job no one else wants--telling you a
loved one has died.
He takes ... criminals to jail.
He takes... in sights that would make you cry.
Sometimes he cries too, but he takes it anyway
because someone has to.
He takes... memories to bed each night that you
couldn't bear for even one day.
He takes... time to explain to his family why he
can't make the ball game his child is in and why
he has to work on the holiday when other parents are off.
Sometimes, he takes a bullet.
And yes, occasionally he may take a free cup of coffee.
If he is lucky, he takes retirement.
Then one day he pays for all he has taken, and God takes him.

Here's my personal thanks to all those 'cops' out there. I appreciate what you do!
THANK YOU~

Hello John Welcome to my little corner of the world.
I was once now medically retired. I thank you for the job you do.
I hope when you need a laugh you drop by.
