No; cops do NOT "love" this! In fact, they hate it! Cops don't start their shifts daily thinking "wonder how many I can shoot/kill today"; their favorite types of calls are "citizen assist" calls, generally. So kindly stop spreading the LIE that "cops are out to get you"!

Amico

it's not a lie is a fact many people decide to hide because is way to ugly even to talk about it

Amico

you want more? because I have more so next time be careful who you call a liar because I'm just telling like it is
