10 Reasons You Should Not Care About Police Week

Yup, you read that right. I know there are millions of you that hate cops, and there are millions of you that love them. I've given it a lot of thought and realized the haters have a point. I mean seriously, in 1962 John F. Kennedy decided to set aside an entire week to honor them? A whole week?  Thousands of people descend on Washington, DC and snarl traffic for events all week. Whew, glad I don't live there, traffic's bad enough already.

Luckily, my town isn't one of the thousands across the country that hold events for Police Officers this week, one more thing I don't need to feel badly about missing.

To help everyone out, I've come up with a pretty valid list of reasons why you shouldn't care about honoring Police Officers. I'll be honest with you, no matter what side of the camp you're on, I think you'll see my logic. Whether or not I agree with your logic, that's a different story.

Police Week

Cops are...

1. Trying to ruin your day - "Some a$$hole cop was hiding under a bridge and gave me a $200 speeding ticket. If it weren't for him, I would have been here on time!"

2. Constantly saving other people's lives - "Get your hands off me! I'm going to kill the b!tch!!"

3. Filthy - They are constantly spit, vomited and bled upon. Gross!

4. Always late - "I called 10 minutes ago! You couldn't have gotten here before my drunk husband got home?!"

5. Enjoy destroying private property - "He tried to serve me a warrant so I slammed the door. It's not my fault his body got caught in it! I want the city to pay for what he did to my door!"

6. Love picking fights - "Yeah, I punched the pig. He was trying to arrest me!"
