Most cops here in Germany don't even have guns or a radio on them.Wolfeye wrote:Guys, not to be a ball-buster, but does anyone have information like I was asking about earlier? I'm talking about like the beginning of this thread or the very bottom of page 3. Like how cops in Germany (from what I've heard) are a lot like the cops in America, but they don't go ape-shit crazy as often. The whole "catching one of their bullets & any kind of sentencing for it" is a concern. I figure it's perfectly plausible for them to preserve their employment by locking me the f**k up for being hit with THEIR f**k-up.
It's also interesting to me that they get FIRED from their job instead of getting locked up. I don't see an accountant stealing from clients & just getting fired. I don't see a cab driver getting a suspended license for running people over on the sidewalk. I don't see a firefighter getting a paid vacation for lighting up someone's house, much less their dog or cat.
Public laws are pretty relaxed.
Government jobs here in Europe are usually for life.
