being a cop, fireman, or soldier only gives you the opportunity to be a hero, its the persons choices and actions that make them a hero. That said I respect these people greatly if they are doing what they are suposed to do within the lawgrignasty:
-sitting at the stage with stripper in front of me doggie style (she was on all fours ass facing me)
-I got to tip her but with the dollar in a closed fist and end up punching her in her vagina
-Stripper turns to my friend and says "Hey your friend is getting alittle rowdy, he just punch me in the twat"
-I turn to the same friend and say "It gets what it deserves, I'm doing God's work"

any1 out there nomatter what their occupation/ethnicity/race/kind/breed saves some1's life is considered a hero.
eg: cats and dogs have been called heroes for saving their owner's lives..
but, some will also argue if a cop prevents a crime then they are just doing their job because its their job description to prevent crime and same goes to a soldier and a firefighter putting out a fire, doctors performing life saving surgeries, EMS perfoming/acting quickly to save a life, A customs border guard, preventing criminals entering ur country, an nuclear/chemical engineer building a reactor so people can get electricity and heat during harsh winters, a teacher for saving your life and providing u the right education, so u dont end up on the street become a crac addict/stripper and die in a few yrs, the air bags setup in ur car that deployed on impact during accident and saved ur life.. list goes on.. any1 can be a hero at any time and in any form.Death Comes To Those Who Bow Down To Their Fears!!

I think one category of people who deserve respect are soldiers, marines, arimen, seamen who have been deployed. Not necessarily heroes, but being deployed for a year+ in a warzone, sleeping in a tent, ****ting in a portapoty, showering once every 2-3 weeks. Getting shot at, blown up, mortarted, rocketed. I think people who've gone through that deserve respect for what they've experienced.11B, NASM CPT, CFL1

You and OP and everyone else knocking police officer's being called hero's seem to forget that when you asses are in trouble, they are the first you call. Maybe not every police officer has had an opportunity to perform some heroic act, but they are putting their lives on the line so you all can feel safe at night.
As far as firefighters go, I have previously worked pt as a police officer, I like my chances patrolling the streets then I do going into a burning building, no thank you , Im the guy running away from the fire, while the firefighters are running at it, those guys are also heros
Oh yeah and soldiers volunteer knowing that one day they maybe put in harm's way, not all may see warzone but everybody's job is important, they volunteer to potentially leave their children, wive's etc to protect our country, how can they not be heros

A hero is not a profession.
This thread is definitely a testament of our generation though. Fifty years ago EVERYBODY served somehow/someway. Our generation now is more concerned about what the **** the paparrazi are doing, or their looks. Now we talk about how people are "tired" of professions where it requires being put in harms way as not being heroic. Next thing you know, we are going to have a thread that says they are not "honorable" professions.
The vast majority of you guys are going to be blink, and you will be 75 years old. What are you going to be able to tell your grandkids you did? What is your legacy?★cVc★

I've lost alot of respect for cops. Around here people selling drugs so openly, brake ins etc.. and all they do is hide and pull over everyone for tinted windows, stopsign, brakelights, lowered vehicle, loud exhaust you name it. I have no problem if your a speeder or wreakless driver and you get pulled over, because you deserved it. But when there are alot more serious crimes being committed, and all you can do is hide and give out tickets just enrages me.

Yea you are going a bit counterculture with your comments but our society regards those jobs more because they have high risk...to the point of risking your own welfare...and low reward. They generally aren't paid a large salary.
I know what you mean tho. I was in ROTC in college and went to a store in my uniform. Some woman came up to me hugged me and said 'Thank You'. At least it made her feel good.
I almost joined the military and some of the guys I know appeared to be a bit amoral or joining for a selfish cause.
Then again I learned of extremely heroic acts done by our servicemen and am aware of what they sacrifice on a daily basis. Many of my friends joined the military so I generally hold most of the system in high regard but yes I'm critical of much of it.
Firefighters and cops I generally respect. Haven't had much problem with cops. Some are dicks sure. I have ppl in my fam that were / are cops or military tho.Misc Strength Crew Founder.

If it werent for teachers, you would be an uneducated peasant. Why arent they heroes?
If it werent for construction workers, you would have no place to live. Why arent they heroes.
Extreme sports enthusiasts put their lives on the line all the time. Why arent they heroes?
