    Reader, anytime you want to test out that theory of your's I will gladly offer you a lesson at the gym on dickinson avenue for open mat MMA training. If a run is what you want, I run 30-40 miles per week and have a single digit body fat percentage, we can definitely see if your theory on "cops" is correct. If you would learn how to use proper grammar,you would have more respect from people. Sorry, but people are laughing at you.

    To C: You're right! people don't understand what officers go through, as well as the fact that the suspects live in an area that no one is going to rat them out. The general public don't understand that cops can't just bust in every door in the city. Laws are in place for that kind of stuff. And like said before, think you can do it better, try it or leave your opinion out of it.

    To reader: Not all police officers are overweight. Quite a few are in excellent physical shape. HOWEVER, uniformed officers are also wearing about 15 to 20 pounds of equipment that the people they chase are NOT wearing. A gunbelt weighted down with a pistol, handcuffs, spare ammunition, radio and tazer weighs a lot. Then there's the vest, and the boots. If you think you can do the job better, plenty of law enforcement agencies are hiring. If not, don't try to tell them how to do a job you obviously know nothing about.

    To Tracy: Your comment makes perfect sense, but as long as we allow liberalism and political correctness to rule our nation, this is what we'll have to endure.

    If I'm not mistaken, this looks like a mug shot that was apparently already on file. Once a thug always a thug. Stop letting them out once you have them.
