I know a DO in my force, he has yet to say anything positive about the job and his colleagues are the same. 24hours a day baby-sitting the creme-de-la-creme? Not my idea of fun.
Big brother is watching you.

It's the thought of dealing with whinging "it weren't me" "what about my human rights (& f*** those of my victims)" and being indoors all shift that puts me off.
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.
