I do and since they are under the umbrella of emergency services with fire and such they are stuck with annual physicals to remain on active field duty... now the cheifs on the other hand you can tell who got there through the ranks
On that same website Galls Flexible Waist Belt has me intrigues on how effective or comfortable this little accessory is.

edit

Crap it comes in a size 54 ... just how fat are cops on average?

Y'all don't wanna know. Trust me, you don't wanna know.

It depends on a few things.  Working rotating shifts with duties that seem to actively conspire against regular exercise and a balanced diet doesn't help one iota.  A rookie with a 30" waist can easily be over 40" ten years later.  Everyone likes to point at overweight cops, but take a look at your local paramedics - you'll see the same thing, and for the same reasons.

Those people generally don't make it through the Academy in the first place.

ROKO: "So, I'm left with all these burning questions: Who am I? Can I be more than a police officer? Can I have a real impact on this world in other ways? More importantly, is there any way I can have bread and Human Abs at the same time?"

She could be ego-fragile. There are plenty of people who would be shaken by the realization that they were assumed to be vindictive jerks simply because of their job.

Someone that easily shaken is poorly suited for a law enforcement job in the first place.

I am so glad this thread exists...
I was sitting here thinking something was terribly wrong when I opened up the page to find.... T..T....Taffy!!!! (Tillly)
Then thought "Oh - no new comics then?"

But thats a helluva jump from standing on the street with May to a "Sod, this - I'm off" moment.
(I don't even know if I understand why that particular phrase has caused Roko's "Bugger it, I'm out" reaction...?)

Funnily enough, I had read the comic, exited the page and came back to find Hanner!Mom being fanned by the Robohorse, so that was a WTF? moment for me.

And regards to understanding the phrase, I think its Roko twigging that she had to say to someone "she's not a vindictive cop". To a parolee, no less. To an idealist like Roko seems to be, where the cops are supposed to be the ones who serve the public and who the public should always feel safe around, the fact that she had to clarify that she wasn't the vindictive kind made her realise that May, and possibly others, are terrified of her and the police. That's enough of a realisation to break someone, especially someone whose only crime has been a little too dogged in her job and whose only vice is liking the smell of bread.

Hmm...
Whereas I understand your reasoning, personally, I would think the exact opposite (where I Roko).
It's either that or Jeph is suggesting that NOT being a vindictive cop is something 'other' than the norm.

And if that IS the case, then my take on Roko is, she would make bloody sure that perception ended... but not by leaving. (!?)

It's an odd one, certainly...

Yeah, I'm with you on this one too. Unless Jeph has a different explanation in mind (one that nobody here has offered yet), the decision to quit based on a realization that people fear/don't trust cops in general seems a bit of a leap to me.

By the way, is it me, or does Jeph seems to be inserting more current societal issues into QC lately? I know he has done so on occasion in the past as well, but it seems more prevalent in the past year or so of QC, with (white/rich/male) privilege and police/judicial system issues.
Not a criticism at all (in fact it makes for interesting discussions here), but wondering if it's just me or if others got the same impression.

Okay. Made an account just to comment on today's (QC #3836) comic. At first, I thought the comic was just to move the current plot along, but then I may have imagined a punchline? Again, made an account to see if anyone touched upon this and no one hasn't, so I suppose I guess I'll explain the joke that was (wasn't?) made.

Panel #3 (bottom left): this is a typesetting joke right? Because my reaction to that terrible pun/joke was totally Panel #4

Also: Italics is totally the vindictive type. Looks so backstabby.

Welcome, new person who is a font of wisdom!

I can't help but feel you might be on to something - I don't know the first thing about typesetting, let alone typesetting puns (so if this was one, it totally went over my head) - but the "Roko realizes she had to explain she's not the vindictive type, which makes her ask some hard questions about her job"-explanation doesn't feel right to me.

Not that it isn't possible, but it feels like ... too complicated, too much lateral thinking required?  :-\

And she's already been asking uncomfortable questions about her job in COD, the day before?
