    HONOLULU -- An off-duty Phoenix police officer saved the life of a swimmer in Hawaii.

    Guillermo Arrubla on Saturday watched a woman jump off a cliff at Spitting Caves and then struggle to return to shore.

    Arrubla entered the water with two life vests and helped the woman put one on. He stayed with her until a boat from the Honolulu Ocean Safety Division reached them.

    Arrubla was a lifeguard on Long Island, N.Y., and a former New York police officer until he joined the Phoenix Police Department almost 15 years ago.

    He told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the turbulent water below Spitting Caves made him decide not to jump in until he saw the woman in distress.

    The Ocean Safety Division presented Arrubla with a merit award Sunday.

    Thanks TD for the pro-cop threads. There are more than a few on here that are Officers and some married to Officers. There are good and bad in every profession but you hardly ever hear the good things because it is just not as sensational.

    Just got tired of the cop-bashing threads. They are just as ignorant as racist threads -- to label all cops based on a few assholes is equal to labeling all blacks, whites, whatever.

    Everybody knows there are good cops but that doesnt excuse the bad ones. Cops get enough good praise but the ones that break the law and that are just downright evil should be punished very severely. We have entrusted them to have (us) the people best interests at heart and ALOT have failed and are not punished. They have ruined lives and been given special treatment because they are in the old boys club. Its only because of video cameras on phones that we can capture these evils fucks, imagine what they are doing when there is no camera.

    I would go into agendas and quotas but thats another discussion. You can only brush the shit under the carpet for so long.

    Agreed.

    But believe me, good cops outnumber the bad ones like in any subsection of society and the straight cops despise the rotten apples because it makes their jobs harder and more dangerous.

    EDIT: Also, cops interact with civilians tens of thousands of times a week across the country with zero problems. It is not fair to label everyone because of a few cunts.

    The good cops don't get a break though...everybody loves a firefighter..I have those in my family too, but nobody likes a cop... until they really need one.

    yeah i wonder why

    Trooper doesn't pull over blatantly-speeding governor's car, so another trooper files a complaint, gets suspended.

    Good cop gets fired for stopping another cop who was beating a emotionally disturbed man.

    Miami PD retaliated by pulling over a uniformed cop for no reason, throwing shit on a trooper's car, and apparently lots of griping on various police blogs.

    COP being blacked balled for not agreeing to lie on warrant!



    I'm also sick of people who say to those who criticize the police, "I'll bet you will call one when you need one." If I need one I will call one, because I expect them to do their job. It doesn't give them the right to act outside the law with little to no accountability. Nor does it give them any reason to act in a bullying, disrespectful manner. fucktards

    Jon Stewart once asked Dennis Leary why people liked firemen so much more than cops (Dennis was pimping Rescue Me).
    "Because the only time you see a fireman is when you really need him."

    If there were good cops there wouldn't be any bad ones.
    How does a bad cop, allegedly that 1% who ruins it for the other 99%, get away with so much illegal activity and excessive use of force when he is surrounded by so many good, community-protecting heroes who risk their lives every day selflessly?

    (they don't, because it wouldn't be possible)
