Two of my buddies from the Marines who are cops up north of me in Everett are the ones that are told to go into the bad areas and get into the shit and do what they have to do. Talking to them they describe punching people all the time and getting into all kinds of altercations. Given it doesn't come without criticism and they get a lot of complaints and heat from higher, but it infuriates them because they are told to go to these places and they are actually doing what they have to do to not get their asses handed to them on the streets by the scum they are told to go after. I'm glad to hear that they are those types of cops as opposed to ones who aren't thinking about getting physical and who have a little too much patience. I know they will go hard as soon as they get any type of defiance from an individual under arrest, and that is how it should be.
