41. Roid rage...yes quite a possible element

Iím sorry but I donít subscribe to the current mindset in the US that soldiers, cops, and firemen are automatically heroís. Some are, some arenít. Theyíre just people doing their jobs most of the time. And particularly the police get a pass for all kinds of bad behavior. I spent some time in Afghanistan and lots of the guys spent their spare time in the gym, nothing wrong with that; great way to fill in some boring hours. But, juicing was rampant. And an aggressive bravado was encouraged (men and women both) Like has been mentioned many cops are ex military. And you can tell a lot of them pump a lot of iron. Whether the juicing continues domestically I have no idea but a lot of these guys are awfully big.

So before people jump on my case about my attitude Iím not saying all service and public workers are offbase, Iím just saying they arenít all heroic and shouldnít be given automatic passes on bad behavior. Thereís bad actors in every profession.
