Why do people think all police are low paid?

I mean in some states there is bad paid. But in cook county we get paid 45,000 a year as the deputy sheriff. I know that its not alot but its a starting job.

It's the same as firemen. When cops or firemen have a slow day and get paid 45k a year to sit around and not do much are they paid too much? But once the bullets start flying and the cops run TOWARDS them or the firemen run INTO a burning building, that 45k per year is most certainly not enough.

Well, I don't think that so your question is now inaccurate. '_'

its not that they are low paid its that they are low paid for what they do. for instance if a worker at McDonalds made $20 an hour that would be over paid. Do you thing that putting your ass on the line for people you dont even know is worth 45K a year?
