Many cops are juicing. Good. Using steroids to improve your strength is a victimless crime. And, it has been proven over & over again that if roids are used intelligently, risks are minimized. This board is full of knowledgeable explanations of this. People that mess themselves with anabolic drugs did not take all measures to minimize & counterract side effects...That is irresponsible.
Cops that are stronger & more aggressive is undeniably beneficial to crime fighting. Has anyone considered how well someone is able to enforce the damn law if they're on steroids?!!
Ronnie has to be the strongest police officer in the history of the world. Personally I'd feel a lot safer to know that criminals must deal with cops as bad ass as Coleman.
This is more of a rhetorical thought but illustrates what I believe is a valid point... Would you rather only your criminals be huge, powerful and aggressive?
In a world like this, authorities would have to shoot guns much more often to keep the peace. The cops, bouncers, bodyguards, and military personnel would be defeated in every physical confrontation.
Coleman risked not only his career as an elite professional athlete, but his own safety to defend others. Law enforcement is one of the most dangerous occupations on this planet. These people are willing to die every day to protect others. Deen you should be thanking him. There are very few men in the world that would still do police work when they have a fruitful career as a pro athlete. I can't even think of any other pro athlete that is a cop. Maybe there have been a few, but does the general public know their names? No, that's because they didn't achieve fame by virtue of excelling to the heights of their sport. This doesn't trivialize what they may have accomplished as a cop or an athlete, but to me it makes Coleman's willingness to risk his life more admirable...
Ronnie is THE REIGNING CHAMPION of his sport, he certainly did not work as a cop for the money. I speculate that he made less in a year from police work than what he makes in a week as the top bodybuilder in the world. (When you average out all of his endorsement deals, merchandising & licensing royalties, and contest winnings). Many other pro-bodybuilders don't even work at another career. That's understandable, the required dedication of this sport is a lifestyle. Ronnie Coleman should be seriously respected just like Pat Tillman, who was killed in Afghanistan after he set aside his professional football career to serve in the U.S. Army.
What is the only possible reason Ronnie worked as a cop? Because your safety was his top priority.
Not your "champion"... how dare you.
