As civil servants, to be respected. As a law abiding human, I treat LEOs with dignity becoming of the office which they hold. I don't fear cops. I respect them. I don't look up to them, or down upon them. Behind the badge, they are just as human, and frail as the rest of us. Some cops deserve support, because they check, and stop corruption, and others should lose their position because they violate the office. Got this knife (exact model) when I was 15 years old. Open Carry on right hip.
