Cops Accused Of Using Steroids
"The thinking is that big is better than small, tough is better than weak,'' said Gene Sanders, a former police officer who has worked for nearly 15 years as a police psychologist for several agencies in California. "There is sort of an underground, unspoken tradition among several departments that I've worked with that if you really want to bulk up, this is the best way to do it.''
But steroids can also lead to heart disease, liver damage and shrunken testicles, as well as uncontrolled aggression, or ``roid rage,'' which can be especially dangerous in a law officer.
"These substances can cause depression and despondency, and here is a person who has a weapon,'' said Dr. Linn Goldberg, head of Oregon Health & Science University's Division of Health Promotion and Sports Medicine.
A former Riverdale, Ga., police officer who received a life sentence in 1995 for the slaying of a bar owner, and an Oregon jail guard who received a 20-year sentence in 1986 for kidnapping, shooting and paralyzing a woman both claimed steroid use contributed to their behavior.

There are a large amount of cases that blame the crime on steroid use, yet there is still no sufficient proof.

A LOT of cops use. That's good for us. They have to use the same suppliers we use. Never bust your own source............

I'm not a big believer in Roid rage.. although I do believe someone that is an *******, will have a tendency to be even more of an ******* on gear... however the part about depression, and having a weapon is real. I just got back from a lengthy disscusion with someone you would of thought should know better.
he's been calling me 4 or 5 times a week, picking my brain and asking me why he can't keep an erection, why he's argueing with his wife.... The guy doesn't no **** about pct, and I've been trying to explain everything to him... and how it all works..
Meanwhile his wife is ready to leave him.. he's depressed to no end.
ANyway the point is... post cycle crash is real... and the countless people that go into these cycles and have no clue what pct is just crazy and will only make everything worse and last longer. Boggles my mind.
Throw into that mix.. that cops typically have a hard time at home... have to deal with incredible job pressures... are forced daily into situations where there life can be on the line.. its not hard to see that, at some level there is valid concern in what was expressed.
Although, generally... Of course some people can handle all this in stride quite well too.

Don't get me wrong, I was not being down on the cops by posting the article, I just ran across this and thought you guys would be interested.
For all I am concerned they should give syringes of the stuff out at the morning staff meetings. I know I would want every extra edge that I could get

The article's line of thinking is the same line of thinking when statements like, "Because of GUNS these crimes are happening....", are made.
It seems as though the blame is always to fall on an the inanimate object and not the actor in the situation.
If an officer wants to use I have no issue with that, the same with civilians, but if either uses and doesn't cover all their bases with knowledge on PCT and sides don't blame what they're taking, but put the responsiblity onto to where it belongs.

LOL. No joke. I'm working at a nutrition store, now, and we just had two cops come in and they bought our leftover 1-test ether. LOL. One was talking about starting a cycle in MarchOriginally Posted by youngheart
The evidence against steroids and how "horrible" they are is shoddy at best. The propoganda by the whacko's the communists who think every is or should be equal in every aspect of their life is ridiculous!
One day I'll be president and I'll legalize the stuff and juice up our military heheheeheh
