some one please let me know if they can relate. ever notice that it seems in society in general, maybe more so in affluent or middle class neighborhoods, it appears that the "youth " of today love to say "f---"" the police? kids that have never been in trouble before say it. peer pressure maybe? when i was groing up, i was taught to respect authority, and that "if you're not doing anything wrong, you never have to fear the police" what does this say about the parents of these kids? why, maybe because daddy got a ticket, the pervasive attitude trickles down to their kids that it's alright to disrespect the police? any feedback?

I think the big problem with kids are the parents. The parents are letting them do what they want, and say what they want. I am 31 years old with 5 yr old little girl. I was raised by a single mother and my grandmother and they taught me right from wrong. One of the biggest things my parents taught me was to be respectful. I was not allowed to cuss in front of anyone, and if I did, then I got spanked. To be honest, one time my mom and I were in the car and driving home when someone pulled out in front of me. Without thinking the f- word came out of my mouth and as quick as lightening my mom popped me in the mouth. As you can imagine I never made that mistake again.

Kids today are growing up in a society that lets them get away with things. Their parents have no discipline and kids do what they want. I have heard some awful language from kids as young as 6 yrs old. When I was six I never heard of those words. The kids do what they want and have no respect for authority, including police officers, teachers, etc.

When i was younger I remember talking to police officers in stores or at school and at times they would give me and my friends baseball cards. I was never disrespectful to any authority figure because that was how I was raised. I am raising my daughter the same way. She knows that police are there to help her if she needs it. I have received tickets and what not for speeding but i make sure she knows they are doing their job to keep us safe.

Here in Odessa we do things in the community and interact with police officers as much as possible. Just the other day we went to a car dealership to have her car seat checked out and this was done by a police officer from Midland. He was very professional and talked with us about things we could do for added safety in the car. My daughter was talking to him like a friend and then her gave her some candy.

These kids with potty mouths need to be disciplined and taught ways to be respectful. As a parent my job is to make sure my daughter knows right from wrong and to be respectful. It is a hard job, but that is my responsibility as a parent.

"Fuck you" is not explicitly covered under the 1st Amendment. If you look at these various court cases, it can be easy to grab someone; you just need to know what laws they are violating. The 1st Amendment is designed primarily to protect the rights of assembly and petition.

On topic: I really don't know why people, specifically the younger generation, seem to feel that police are the great enemy of society (although that feeling is certainly reflected in the media.) I love the police. When I worked nights at the Taco Bell I work at now, police would come through all the time and accuse me of being on drugs (I take my responsibility to be pleasant very seriously, even at eleven, twelve, or one o'clock at night). It was funny. Of course I had co-workers who called them "pigs" and other such slurs. Irony? All but one of those people were either fired or quit on bad terms with the store. I am still going and could be a manager if I wanted. I guess respect beats all.

if you are correct, then why is it that songs like cop killer, and fuck the police, and statements like 187 on a undercover cop are allowed to be sold and played in the public??

Because modern society is a cesspool of filth and corruption mixed with the cancer of apathy?

That, or the fact that most people don't wan to challenge the 1st Amendment. It is critical to the survival of democratic society, so the songs you listed often end up as part of the price of progress.

"fuck you" may be covered under the first amendment, but if someone says it to me I'll be sure to articulate (wink, wink) a reason to make the collar stick.

I suppose a terroristic threat is also covered under the 1st...guess I should just run my copy of the penal code through the shredder.

Don't agree with the way the law is written, you can either contact your legislators to have it changed or become a sepratist and join the militia.

Quite. Just hope I am never a lawyer so I don't prove to the court how they are the same thing. Please note that "malicious attacks" against another person are not covered by the 1st Amendment.

"Fuck you" isn't an opinion...it's a statement.

No. Then you get otherkin, atheists, Hindus, Wiccans, some Christians, some Jews, some Muslims, oh, and all of freaking Scientology mad at you. They sue you for discrimination; the ACLU gets involved; it gets ugly.

Back to the point, profanity simply demonstrates the person is uneducated or they are missing a few brain cells. I try very hard not to curse but occasionally I might let one slip. Chalk it up to being a cop for so many years as well as sailor for many years. It still is not right. I have been known to say something to offending people when they talk like that in front of women and children. I'm no saint and people that know me do not question my masculinity, but it is not necessary to use filthy language to get your point across.
