Policing the Police

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do?
The genuises over at http://ratemycop.com/ have created a site which allows citizens to rate cops. This is bad - Dory! I guess this is becoming citizens on patrol. I hear the cops are none too happy about this site and want it taken down because it exposes too much.
Just from my brief view of the site, I can see that some officers are getting comments like this:
kind, courteous, good natured. everything you would expect from an exceptional police offer.

Unfortunately, other officers are getting comments like the one below:
this officer is a poor representation of what law is. no morals what so ever and no ethics to follow.

hmm - I wonder which officers are complaining.

Nevertheless, the next time you get pulled over for speeding, you may want to go ahead and let the officer know about this site - but be sure to comment on how the tasing went.

*EDIT*
Go Daddy - the host of ratemycop.com has pulled the site down - Kinda like Go Daddy got pulled from the Superbowl after racy commercials: wizbangblog.com/content/2005/02/07/godaddy-ad-pull.php - 253k
