Shut up you dont have a clue whats going on in this guys head, so many officers are diagnosed with PTSD and suffer threw so much. Yes this is the career he choose but remember the reason you could sleep comfortable and not feel threatened at night is becuase you know there are police out there protecting the community. Next time you when you have a problem call a gang member or a crack head to help and dont bother to call the police may the crack head and the convict will give you a better example.
