I have the honourable experience to endure the struggles of being sort of a cop… I am not nor will i ever be. I can quit anytime i want. Same goes for my darker side. Either way it is no concern to you.
However what is a concern. Your safety! Take this into account. You do not… i repeat You abso-fucking-lutely do not pay anything near enough what these people should be paid.
I know it sounds absurd especially coming from me the eternal grey hat, but from a birds eye view you can see all kinds of crazy. Sometimes fun. Sometimes sad. But all together… You have no clue!
I am glad that the cops in the Netherlands are now demanding a better pay and benefits. They should get it!
