To surf and protect.
So, a few days ago, one New York City police officer was suspended, and another hospitalized, for this squad car hood-surfing stunt that fortunately (for us) was captured by a surveillance camera:
I bring this story to your attention, not to add to the recent and unfortunate divide between the public and the officers who have been tasked with protecting them, but to subtract from it. In these confusing and emotional times, it's easy for civilians like myself to forget that the officers we see on the street every day are not simply authority figures, but other men and women trying to live their lives just like us.
And nothing drives that point home better than this video, because this is exactly the kind of dumb shit that me and my dumb friends would get in trouble for if somebody was dumb enough to let us be cops. No doubt about it. These dumb cops here are definitely my people.
