    Cop on the take!

    First he takes ... the oath.
    Now look at what else he takes:
    He takes ... it in stride when people call him pig.
    He takes ... his lousy pay check realizing he'll never be rich.
    He takes ... a second job sometimes to make ends meet and support his family.
    He takes ... time to stop and talk to children.
    He takes ... your verbal abuse while giving you a ticket you really deserved.
    He takes ... on creeps you would be afraid to even look at.
    He takes ... time away from his family to keep you safe.
    He takes ... your injured child to the hospital.
    He takes ... the graveyard shift without complaint because it's his turn.
    He takes ... his life into his hands daily.
    He takes ... you home when your car breaks down.
    He takes ... time to explain why both your headlights have to work.
    He takes ... the job no one else wants -- telling you a loved one has died.
    He takes ... criminals to jail.
    He takes ... in sights that would make you cry.
    Sometimes he cries too, but he takes it anyway because someone has to.
    He takes ... memories to bed each night that you couldn't bear for even one
    day.
    He takes ... time to explain to his family why he can't make the ball game
    his child is in and why he has to work on the holiday when other parents are
    off.
    Sometimes ... he takes a bullet.
    And yes, occasionally ... he may take a free cup of coffee.
    If he is lucky ... he takes retirement.
    Then one day he pays for all he has taken ...and hopefully..,
    God takes him.

    I grew up with, and used to play muddy-field football with, a kid who died in the line of duty. He was shot while talking to informants. They're doing life....but his life is over. Not fair.
