you dont have to be big to handle yourself. you have to have good officer safety skills and be smart.
i knew a few cops in FL that were using steroids, however, when FL changed them to felonies instead of misdemeanors they stopped.
most of the ppl that are encountered on the street do not stay in shape or lift weights. i think the roids are an easy way or short cut to get strong instead of the old fashioned way of studying a MA, or running (to fight longer with higher intensity), or weightlifting (it takes longer but u will get there!).
they knew the law therefore its their bad and they deserve what they get (if the allegations are founded).
