Why are the majority of cops such jerks?

It happened again. This time I was in Moe's and this cop was eating a table away from me and he was wearing a pink breast cancer awareness police badge. I thought it was cool they would wear that so I said to him, "hey that's a cool badge, sir. I think it's nice you have that."

He said nothing, just stared at me in this "why the hell is this lowlife citizen speaking to me" and then he looked back down to his food. I was polite, complemented a part of his uniform and was smiling. Yet he still acted like a total asshole. It's just skmething that seems to be synonymous with cops. Its why so many hate them.
