    Cops on Steroids


    http://articles.health.msn.com/id/10...ite/100000000/

    Forget ballplayers. More than ever, police officers are juicing up to get an edge on perps—but at what price? Men's Health investigates.

    More on this in Health & Fitness


    Officer Jimmy (not his real name) knew his steroid use was paying off when, one day, the Ohio policeman needed to wrestle a suspect to the ground—and the guy crumpled like a piece of wet cardboard. "It took no effort at all," Jimmy marvels. For Kevin, a military policeman, his steroid epiphany came as he was throwing a rowdy patron out of a Southern California bar: Kevin grabbed the guy by his belt and yanked him right out of his chair. "He landed about 2 feet behind me," he remembers. Former Suffolk County, New York, officer Tom Foley had a steroid moment of a different sort when, while vacationing in L.A., he was pumping iron at Muscle Beach—with visions of his idol, Arnold, dancing in his head—and spectators started taking his picture.
    "It was unbelievable!" Foley exclaims with a bashful smile, holding up a framed photo from that session: a shot of his shirtless back, an explosion of finely cut lats and traps. Foley, 33, is seated on the back porch of his girlfriend's Long Island home, enjoying the simple pleasure of breathing free air. He's on his very first weekend furlough from prison, where he's nearing the end of a 3-year sentence. And while he's stayed in excellent shape behind bars, he's no longer Muscle Beach buff. "Yeah, it was amazing," Foley says, peering nostalgically at the photo. "And that was on 200 milligrams

    I found this article to be very interesting and funny because I know cops that shoot-up and they are my buddies. They usually tease me about joining them in shooting-up. They usually shoot-up right in front of me; without breaking a sweat. I haven't reached that stage and I don't plan on opening that door. I'm happy with pills like 1AD, Superdrol and maybe Phera-Plex next year.

    Hmmm, I wonder how many guys shoot-up on this site???

    As far as I'm concerned, I say they train them on AAS and lifting,etc...then provide it to them!
    I want them to have as many benefits as possible...since they are protecting my tail and all.

    This article is crap. There opening line states that "more than ever, police officers are juicing up" yet read on and experts say it is impossible to even remotely come up with any concrete number whatsoever. As someone in law enforcement I am used to this crap but this is ridiculous. Do I know cops that have juiced, yes, but 20 to 25 percent, that is BS. I know just as many, plumbers, dentists (pick any career) that juice. They pick a couple of cops that juice and their word is gospel.

    Juice is not a "tool of the trade". This crap about lawsuits having increased for brutality is a result of a litigious society and not a result of steroid use among cops. It's cheaper for a department to dole out ten thousand for a bogus lawsuit then fight it in court regardless of any wrongdoing at all. The lawyers know this and that is the reason for the increase. The reason they have mace and tazers now is so cops can avoid hand to hand defense. They are considered less force in my state.

    I could go on and on but that's it for now. It's articles like this that will kill the supplement industry along with making it more of a crime to juice than shoot up heroin.

    Some good points you bring up, roadside. I too believe that their percentage is highly exagerrated, and statements are fabricated without foundation.

    This one is choice "If a cop loses control in a fit of 'roid rage, will your township get slammed with a brutality lawsuit? And, experts speculate, do steroids render cops less effective at their jobs, making you less safe?"

    And this one had me ROFL "When Jimmy developed a golf ball-size pus nodule on his butt, which popped during a house party full of cops, they just laughed and pointed at the wet spot seeping through his jeans; they'd all been there."

    The news becomes more and more like a comic book every day. But seriously, I agree with -2z- These guys are putting it on the line. They aren't chucking a ball around for other people's amusement. I firmly believe in full steriod programs and education for both the Military and Police. It's ashame some scrawny pencil pusher at a desk can make the descision otherwise.

    I know very few law enforcemnt officers that I would even suspect of using. I think the BS lawsuits is whats hurting the supplement industry. you can sue mcdonalds for burning yourself from their hot coffee. even though it is labeled hot coffee.

    I hate the police and I hope they crack down on these idiots, who I'm sure would jump at the chance to bust a drug user, despite using schedule III's themselves. Unless you're in LA, NY, or some other city with a violent crime problem, cops are more of a nuisance than criminals, without question.

    Although the article is most likely slanted and exaggerated, I would guess that there is a higher number of AAS using policemen vs the average population. This is not because they are "police", but rather they are in a profession where their physical safety can be at risk, much like many professional athletes.

    Having said that, I am all for making it legal for police to use AAS, heck, firemen too. If my life is on the line in any way, I want every advantage I can have (meaning a stronger policeman defending me, or a stronger fireman that can carry my not-so-light a$$ out of a fire when I'm unconscious).

    Of course, if that ever happens, I may have to consider a career move.

    I bet LE would be the first people, or close to it, that you would call if your house was broken into, loved one a victim of a violent crime, or so on. If you "hate the police", then you must hate what America stands for. Hate organizations that enforces the laws that are voted in by you, the people to uphold and enforce? If it's so bad, try moving to a different country where anarchy is tolerated. I'm not saying what we have is perfect, but it beats any other country, imo.

    Oh...and almost every city has a violent crime problem. You just hear more about it in LA and NY due to the sheer numbers in volume there. Anytime you have a large population such as they do, the numbers will be higher, but not necessarily the percentages, or per capita numbers.

    I completely disagree, America stands for freedom. Although police are intended to preserve our rights, for the average citizen, they are nothing more than a nuisance and if anything, interfere with our freedoms. The only society that stands for police is a totalitarian state, hardly what our founding fathers intended.

    Laws voted in by me..? hardly. As for the organization that enforces them.. well, they aren't exactly the nation's best and brightest, by in large.

    Discretion has little meaning to them, whether it be using a taser gun on a six year old, breaking a man's neck while throwing him to the ground for an OPEN CONTAINER, or throwing people in jail for walking off a restaurant premises with an alcoholic drink. The broken neck occurred in my home town and the latter is a frequent thing here.

    Yes, I'm generalizing, but people give them far too much slack because they supposedly "protect our lives.." everytime I hear something like that I want to throw up.

    Anyway, the only point is, why should someone who is violating the law in one aspect be allowed to enforce another part of it? It undermines the credibility of an already pathetic system.

    Tell me about it...

    What if a cop has a confrontation with someone far supperior to his physical stature? Cops should be able to get all the advantages they can.

    So you hate the POLICE but you want the POLICE to crack down on the roids? Sure.

    cops enforce the laws, they don't make them. accidents happen with any profession. a job that's as versatile and demanding as a police officer doesn't have the benefit of training for every situation. if a kid points a gun at you, what would you do? bet your ass would pucker up real quick while a million scenarios run through your head in the blink of an eye. by and large, the cops do their job, and do it well.

    and if it were up to me, all military personnel and LE should have the option of running at least test. if you're battling some ****ed up PCP addict, it's gonna take more than a nightstick to stop his ass.

    I only wish they would use a taser gun on a six year old where I live. As a person who just had their Jeep broken into AGAIN this morning (smashed window - adds up), I am 100% AGAINST any leeway for juveniles. Kid criminals are getting younger and younger because they know that nothing happens to them. If I had the chance to vote, I would make it perfectly legal to taser ANYONE, regardless of age, who BROKE into my Jeep or home. Although it's not the 6 year old I worry about, but rather the 12 - 17 year old group. 6 year olds should be in bed when it's nighttime anyways.

    Question - leaving a restaurant premise with an alcholic drink is a frequent thing where you live? No offence, but it does not sound like these people are the sharpest minds at work. The first offence can be chalked up to ignorance of the law. The second offence can be chalked up to ... uhm, not hearing about the guy who got his neck broken for doing it. The 3rd and subsequent offences can only be blamed on stupidity.

    Someone asked if I juice. I have taken m1t once (all water in my opinion) and SD twice. I have never been to the dark side.

    People like broger do not bother me anymore. The "average" person has very little contact with the police and if they do they requested police services.

    I am not sure what I think about making it legal for cops to juice. I do not neccessarily buy the argument that it is a "tool of the trade" and that cops take it for that reason. Most cops are type A personalities and many are former athletes. The cops that juice probably would juice regardless of their career choice.

    I have been on the job for over 12 years. I have only lifted consistently for two, two year stints, 10 yrs ago and the last two years. I lift because I enjoy it. I don't lift so I can kick some $hitbum's ass if he gives me a problem. Good academy training, knowledge, and command presence has kept me safe.

    If those don't cut it than yes, they will deal with the 19" clubs or the 100lb Shepherd.....but it hasn't happened yet, and hopefully never will.

    I remember seeing these two police guys being thrown around like they were rag dolls, I think I was in my late teens. I remember both of the officers were less than 5"10 and they look like the average non-athletic guy on the street. I have to say they were around 140 to 160 pounds. The suspect was 6 feet and around 230 to 250 pounds and muscular built. It was a comedy show to me, to see those two officers trying to wrestle that guy down to the ground.

    Oh yeah, they didn't get him down to the ground. He threw both of them to the ground and climbed a wall and ran. I remember my crew at the time was choking with laughter and so was I.

    It's nothing more pathetic than to see a police officer being thrown around like a rag doll.

    I have no problem with cops taking steroids, just the ones that take them and THEN bust somebody else for doing it. Any cop using should look the other way if he comes across someone else that has them.

    Unhappy


    let's also keep in mind what various medical and governmental organizations opinions were on the scheduling of steroids. before they were finally scheduled. not after.

    i would prefer my cops to be as powerful and as safe as possible. there are many kinds of steroids, with different effects on our state of mind. i want good cops to use it well, at their discretion. i agree with previous posters.. good education and assistance from within the department.

    they are putting their lives on the line for our safety. doesn't that mean something?
