    Cops solicit, give people tickets, and can be a general nuisance in areas with little crime (basically being revenuers), so it's no wonder that people would prefer firemen, they only show up when needed.

    Well think of it like this:
    How much more likely is a fireman gonna put you in prison by mistake instead of say... saving you from dangers like... a fire?

    Might update.

    I can't talk about this sort of family problem at work. At least not yet. My colleagues aren't that close. So most of the time, I can only rant online.
    I'm taking measures to apply for a better job next year, though. Hopefully I'll work in a different environment, where people work as a team.


    You're a kind person, btw. <3

    Anyone else feel the same?
    Yes, I definitely feel that way.

    Not everyone, but if you mean that 95% of the population views firemen more favorably, I would believe that. There is a significant segment of the population that sees police forces as the successor to the institution of slavery, a way for the government to justify continuing to keep black men in custody.

    I don't believe that's true, although racism is certainly alive and well among cops (most of it subconscious), but the cops are undeniably associated with force and violence, which tends to scare people even in the context of fighting crime. All firemen do is save you from fires, so it's easier to see them as a force of benevolence.

    It never fails. Scroll down to the comments section of any video featuring a female video game character in any capacity, and the top comments are always going to be...that kind of comment. It's honestly sickening me a little at this point.

    Where?! What context?!

    *one search later*

    Well, I looked at the Uncharted: Lost Legacy video.. wow, that didn't take long.
