  1. Is there any profession in America where human beings aren't forced to anesthetize themselves with alcohol just in order to cope with the stress of one single day at work ? People need to lighten the heck up, put the alcohol down, quit your jobs, and pick up a joint. The Europeans are like "AHAHAHA go have a' some wine with lunch and go fuugguh ya' ladies on break." The Europeans won't be laughing for long though . Because if you thought last few years sucked for terrorism attacks in Europe, it's about to get a whole lot worse thanks to all those Isis members that are escaping out of Kurdish prison camps as I type this. You could not pay me enough to deal with the sheer level of utter idiocy the Polizei in America are forced to deal with on a daily basis by their citizens. Poor guy was too proud to share his feels..So he shot himself. Happens a lot in America. Not just cops. Cops usually have some of the more mentally resilient people in society working for them. If the cops are offing themselves, you know things are bad.

  2. Dirty conscience probably.

  3. About this 10th officer that killed himself, those close to his family says he spoke about being bullied by his fellow officers. It's sad that on top of having to deal with life, family issues, daily struggles, this man had to go to work where he was probably being harassed/discriminated/humiliated/bullied and who knows what else by his coworkers. They're fellow cops. Who can he report them to? Who would care to listen? In his mind it was better to take his own life and have his pension take care of his family. Why are there so many officers with so little regard for other people?

  4. Rip Daniel shaver/Tony Timpa

  5. Because politicians are too busy filling their pockets to care about taking care of federal / state / local government employees

  6. They said more cops die from suicide than in the line of duty…….see…..the jobs not that dangerous.

  7. He should have found a new job and raised his kids.

  8. Mama don't let your babies grow up to be cops, soldiers or cowboys….we need more doctors.

  9. Why is there no mention of suicide notes.

    I wonder if they investigate these suicides.

    Are these good cops that know about bad cops and choose to take their own life instead of coming forward and blowing the whistle?


  11. This literally don’t even matter
