You do What?

So the other day I found myself amongst  a new group of friends. Everybody was mingling getting to know one another, we were talking about what do you do for work and other conversations where going on. I said to this woman, what do you do for work. She replied in a matter of a fact tone, I am an Oakland police officer. The room got dead silent. You could hear a pin drop. That is bad on so many levels. I will just leave it at that.

I'm clueless about this post. why is it bad to be an Oakland police officer?

Yes, I'm with Karen, whay is it bad...and why bad on so many levels. She's a police officer that is there to keep peace in oakland. My dad was a police officer. When I would disrespect the office that he held, my mom would scold me and say, God has called him to bring peace in our community. Anyway, that opinion and $.55 will get you a cup of coffee at McDonalds.
