why would you worry about guns in NYC? They have the strictist gun laws in the country. Gun laws work perfectly.

Great reasons to become an NYPD cop: (1) You can break the law with wanton disregard. Having a badge means you can speed, run red lights, and use a cell phone while driving, and if you are ever stopped, the unwritten "blue line" means another cop will never ticket you for these relatively "minor" offenses that average citizens can't break. Just don't drive drunk...or at least, too drunk. Hell, you can print up a police plaque for your dashboard and voila....park anywhere, never get a parking ticket again! Oh, and you can install unauthorized sirens in your car...too much traffic on the way to the beach? Light 'em up, fly down the shoulder, and...voila. You think regular citizens would ever know you weren't on a call? (2) Easy Job: Contrary to TV and popular opinion, being a cop is actually not that hard or dangerous most of the time. Walking the beat, resolving disputes, traffic tickets, desk duty, suburban traffic stops, car accident reports, endless false break-in alarms...routine stuff. The truth is, most cops have it fairly easy. Just don't tell the public that, or they will stop worshipping you. (3) You get to lie under oath, and no one can disprove you. Your word is final, so if someone was speeding at 56 in a 55, and you say you tailed them at 75, well, sucks for them! Another step closer to your quota. Most citizens are such suckers they won't bother to file a citizen complaint. Hell, you can even arrest someone for nothing....just make sure you yell "quit resisting!!" loud enough for your dashcam to hear it, and charge them with resisting arrest. No better way to teach a punk a lesson. Remember, it's us (cops) vs them (the rest of the universe, i.e. all the perps). (4) Ego trip: This is the job for you if you love to flex your power over other humans. You hold the power of arrest and the power to fine people lots of money. That's like a drug high. To watch otherwise respected and powerful people cower and shake in front of you cause they know you can ruin their day...priceless. And having a bad day? Get to pull people over and yell at them, and they are too scared to do squat. Great way to relieve family stress. You can be a dick to anyone you want and blame it on "the job". If you are an over-testosteroned, military-wannabe-fake tough-guy angry at the world, who thinks he has the right to play with other peoples freedom, NYPD is for you, especially ESU. (5) Get to play with cool toys and pretend to be in the military: Didn't make it to the Army? No problem. Apply for ESU...get to walk around armed to the teeth with heavy weaponry and break down doors and raid people's houses. So what it's because they sold a gram of weed...assaulting houses in doomsday gear is the ultimate adrenaline rush! (6) The public kisses your ass: Let's face it. Stand in the middle of Times Square, and chances are some hot blonde from outside the country will want a picture with you. Maybe even get her number. (7) Free money: Law enforcement discounts. Pensions. Benefits. And if you are lucky enough to rise into the Brass, a nice "boat check" when you retire, especially if you didn't take all 30 paid sick days every year. Gravy train at the taxpayer's expense....what can be better? Show less

bitch nypd are to scared to kick in the door when it counts and after underestimating a person they get away ....
I love policemen and I'm sick and tired of all the negative bullshit thrown at them by the media and even worse the public. There are good and horrible people in every line of work and to generalize and say things like "FTP" and "All Cops Are Scum" means YOU ARE SCUM! It's not a job for me personally, but most of my best friends are local cops in my hometown of Princeton NJ and I plan on trying to meet some NYPD cops, but where is best to go to? Also, if you serve feel free to get in touch with me I'd love to hear your side of the story for once!

Machine guns? They use assault rifles such as the M16 and the M4 carbine. Now some SWAT teams have submachine guns, such as the H&K MP5 and H&K UMP, but those fire pistol cartridges.

Fluffyr (1 year ago)
Typical media ignorance.
Efface (2 years ago)
they switched to smgs because they are more versatile for their situations and safer for them. a 5.56 nato round which ar 15s shoot can penetrate a wall and possibly hit your teammate on the other side, a 9mm or .45 cant. plus the smaller barrels give them more freely movements and there is no need for a long rifle m16s, m4s and any other rifle are not assault rifles unless u intend to harm someone with it

rommel perez (3 years ago)
+Giannis Kolias The difference is that S.W.A.T stands for SPECIAL WEAPON AND TACTICS and to the progressive libtards this acronym is too aggressive, so many municipalities adopted ESU which stand for Emergency Service Unit....Within SWAT Or if you are a douchebag libtard ESU, you have A-Teams which stands for Apprehension Teams (which are the best of the best within SWAT or ESU.

a lot of the things they do for rescues that need jaws of life or that kind of stuff cant they just call in an fdny rescue co??
Sydney Emergency (3 years ago)
+E_deck24 No they're not trained for this stuff. Just because they have some Jaws doesn't mean that they know how to use them. Where as FDNY have thousands of hours of training and experience and have much more advanced and powerful tools to use. 90% of the time FDNY will be there quicker than ESU anyway and its just annoying when they take over the scene and someone gets hurt/dies because of there bad tactics and strategies when the fire department could have just as easily dealt with the same situation and come out with a good outcome. NYPD are just doing rescue for the pride when they should just stick to Armed Tactical work like in this video.

IZ FUMBLES (4 years ago)
Well as an ESU officer I can answer that for you if theres drugs in an apartment the suspect may use deadly force to protect it and keep from getting arrested. Usually if theres drugs theres more than one criminal in the house ready to shoot and kill police officers who come through the door and we want to go home at the end of the day so we have to take precautions
