Good Cop, Bad Cop?

WARNING: Mildly Controversial

I recall Central Park in fall... and also many discussions of institutionalized crime fighters and their uses throughout my college experience.
Well, although I am still more for uninstitutionalized vigalanty justice-doers, I now respectfully tip my hat to the local law enforcement.

I was broadsided today by a middle-aged beldame right in the middle of an important lyric of the Boss's "Hungry Heart." She was tolerable. But when we called a cop to report the accident, he confirmed my suspicion that the majority of us are in good hands.
Three examples, (lists are more fun than paragraphs, so suck it up, journalists):

1) My insurance card was expired. Before I found the new one in the glove box, the chipper officer asked if I could call home and have someone bring an updated one to me, because he didn't want to write any tickets.

2) When he asked how fast I thought I was going, I was too honest, and answered uncertainly, "About 30, I think." To which he promptly replied, "About 25?" and looked at me. I nodded.

3) I could see myself in his shoes.

He was a good cop, and I have yet to be profiled by a bad one.

Lists really do rule. I would write entirely in the form if it was at all socially acceptable (or possible).

Lists are almost as awesome as cops.
