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.
Most cops here in Germany don't even have guns or a radio on them.
Public laws are pretty relaxed.

Government jobs here in Europe are usually for life.

That's interesting. So they get tenure, basically? Does this apply to things like driving a snow plow or something similar? Might be a good way to save up some cash.

Speaking of guns, I've heard that it's not all that hard to get guns in Europe. Permits & such, yeah- but to GET guns isn't a huge issue. I'd imagine a guy of European descent with a gun in case someone thought it was their religious right to kill him in a shooting spree or to rape some of his family wouldn't get hasseled. And if he did... .
