In Topic: Why do you think people join the police?

Different reasons for different people. Sometimes people don't know their own reasons but will recite the reasons they like the sound of too. I'm sure altruism does actually factor in, a sense of civic duty, maybe a sort of protective drive, and so on for some police. It's actually a really poorly paying job for how much it sucks - depending on the particulars of the officer's duties, obviously some have it cushier than others. And I'm pretty sure many police officers do not get much excitement out of it - there's a lot of bureaucratic/clerical stuff for many positions, and even police who are "on the streets" more often are likely not regularly dealing with violent crime unless they work in certain areas. I think there are better choices of occupation for action and excitement.


I also think that having a position of authority and status is part of the appeal for some police, I wonder why you don't buy that as a plausible reason someone might become a policeman. It's pretty clear that police can exercise power over citizens.

Since I get to listen to my own music in the warehouse as long as it isn't like... metal or rap or just too weird and so objectionable to polite society or whatever, I've created a collection of old string instrument music and this stuff is actually pretty amazing and it went from being kind of "heh I'll make the warehouse sound like a medieval tavern" to a strange obsession in making the playlist all perfect to "maybe I should buy a lute and a theorbo and learn to play them". I mean... it's probably similar enough to guitar right?
