I think it's police. They are stupid, racist, and they like to shoot dogs.

Probably police, or politicians. Wow, why are teachers on this list?

Tax auditor is not on the list, this is different than the financial industry which is bankers and people who gamble at things like stocks.

I think most cops care actually, but get burnt out or something.

If there were a difference in category for city patrol and highway babysitters, would you vote differently?

Eh, poverty drives people to do bad things, and when you get started with something it can be hard to stop.

Not like lawyers who consciously decide to get involved defending those same criminals, or corrupt cops who abuse the power they are given from the people, teachers who assign work over the weekend, or politicians knowingly use rhetoric to legally infringe on the rights of many while playing the moralist.

But for all of those professions, there are good people as well as bad. I'm sure that the the views expressed on some of those professions, police especially, are stereotypes to some degree and the majority of people in that profession are just ordinary people.

Crime, however, will almost always involve causing harm in some way to another human being and not caring. And it's not like all criminals are committing crime because of economic factors. Some enjoy it, some are just greedy. If we're arguing with the idea that humans have free will then they're choosing to continue with crime instead of seeking honest work.

No, these fields are entirely, 100%, full of people with their hearts beating for evil, and a taste for misanthropy.

"But", you say, "What of those inspirational teachers, those lawyers helping the innocent find freedom, and the police fighting for justice and safety?"

Brilliant, organized bastards. That's what. Of course they know their profession would come under fire if it were so unambiguously evil, so some try not to gag, and help a few, just to confuse and justify.

ok. i met a guy one time and he kind of reveled in the fact that his job was to call up really old sick people and offer them money up front on their insurance or estate. so these were people who had retired and just gotten to be old and alone, with only their social security and huge medical bills, and they were out of money and here he was, offering them a way to profit off their own inevitable death.

Police and military are on the same boat for me. I give professional criminals props. If they can do the shit they do without getting caught, that shows how much intelligence they have. It's one thing to do crimes, but it's another to do them and not get caught. Especially on a large scale.

Kidding, I wanted to pick police but that's just an USA thing, the cops around Europe are rather helpful (specially in Swiss/France and the Nordic countries). On the other hand, the ones around the Balkans are corrupt as fuck.

Anyway, I picked other and I say government agencies workers (like the one you deal with when you get a new ID/Passport etc.). It's like they try their hardest to be idiots.

Yeah, but some heists/robberies are so sophisticated and "cool" you just have to give em kudos for such an undertaking, and can't really call them bad people (topic is: which profession has the worst people).

On the other hand, policeman (even tho I didn't say my opinion was policeman but you're pushing for it) are some of the worst people ever. I have many skater and bmx riding friends in the states, or people who went to ride competitions in the states, and the brutality and force retarded polcemen use to stop folks from just riding a skateboard in public in some states is beyond retarded. Therefore, from a skater point of view, that makes em far worse as people than some genius criminal who stole a few millions from banksters.

You're the one who put the focus on the police...

They steal money and threaten people. We shouldn't just forgive then for breaking the law because it's "cool".

> can't really call them bad people
Blatant disregard for the law and willingness to cause harm to others is a fairly good basis for this.

Yes there are bad policemen, but there's a lot that aren't bad too.

Professional criminals would imply regular breaking of the law.

And yes, it can sometimes be a grey issue like a poor person stealing food just to eat, but a lot of criminals are motivated by hate or greed.

I was more of implying that if something is a law doesn't make it an "ultimate morality check" and if you brake it you're amoral/bad.
I could ask you "What if it's a must by law that you eat a spoon of your poop daily" and you refuse to do that, are you a bad person?

But I don't need to make up such bullshit laws, cause there are far more ridiculous laws IRL, for example, in Arizona:
•You may not have more than two dildos in a house.

So if you lived in Arizona, with your collection of dragon dildos, you'd be breaking the law on a daily basis. Would that make you a bad person?

No, dude, I'm not saying that breaking the law automatically makes one a bad person. All I'm saying is that criminals are often bad people, which is demonstrated by their breakage of laws with their thieving/extortion/violence ect.

The law has no power to separate good people from bad. It exists merely to assert the state's dominance over all people. Good and bad are irrelevant to that end.

You don't get it, do you? The law demands obedience, nothing more. When the law requires you to go to Vietnam and shoot gooks, refusing to do so may make you a good person, but as a disobedient citizen you require punishment.

Good/Bad and Obedient/Disobedient are not the same concepts.
