Suicides in the police

More than 100 police officers killed themselves in a year... Yet mental health issues in the police force are still a taboo.

    These police and their families need to go to therapy and have psychiatric evaluations.

    They protect the rich from the poor. That's all it is. Only cowards trade morality for a paycheck. That includes the troops. In a world dominated by a handful of rich elite, all of this bullshit needs to go. The police are finally being seen for what they are.

    Medical marijuana would probably solve this. But go on. Keep arresting for cannabis.

    That's because you struggle with doing whats right. Right side of life or the right side of the law. Sometimes that line becomes blended in with your emotions, but you know when you cross it.

    It's very difficult for me to feel bad about this. Exposure to violence? Lol, What about the demographics cops take an active part in oppressing. Those demographics face astronomical amounts of mental illness and trauma that NEVER gets talked about. Suicide is awful but like, 100 cops last year doesn't compare.

    These comments talking about their mental health are way off! Most of these officers enter the profession completely sane & are overcome from years of seeing horrible tragic things that most civilians do not have to see once in a lifetime...you have no idea what it's like for them & need to keep your assumptions to yourself. Some of you are truly horrible people 😔

    It seems like the jobs with the highest suicide rates are jobs where people sign up to do really bad immoral things. Maybe there's a link.

    Are they including the cop who shot himself, blamed non existent Mexican suspects (so people wouldn't think he was a coward) and then died?
