I have to say that having a father in the state police for 35 years I have been around alot of policemen over the years. Most are good but like any walks of life some are Aholes. The same anywhere like when you knock on doors for permission some say no problem just let me know what you find, others are like hermit crabs and barely or wont even open the door.They act like we just got done robbing the local bank! They really miss out on getting to know you or making a friend or even sometimes lending them a helping hand. I'm glad to see that this particular officer was understanding, after all we as a free country make it hard on ourselves with the rules we make and its not getting any easier !

I used to work at a gas station in high school and the first couple of years in college... pump jockey mostly but some repairs as well. This wasn't a convenience store but we did sell coffee and those horrible microwave sandwiches. I never charged police for coffee, they would offer I'd say no. It cost me $2.00 or so a shift. I never felt like they took advantage of it and it kept them in/out of the station regularly. My station was never robbed while 3 others within a couple of blocks were all robbed multiple times. Luck? Perhaps, I just know keeping friendly with police has been something I've done for years. As I did last week, I speak first and I am friendly with them. Even the Aholes that you run into will be nicer if they are treated that way. Depending on their Ahole-ness that still might not be a pleasant experience but it's still better than it could have been.
