Would You Rather Be a Cop or a Forensic Investigator?

It's hard to pass judgment on a career you haven't had, but forget education, relevant experience, and interview contacts for a second. Which career do you think is cooler?

lol, forensics! i like the way they have "autopsy" in big, silver, back lit letters above the door on CSI, very glam (and i'm sure very realistic).

I just know that there's no way I'd want to be a cop... so forensic investigator, I guess.

Considering that both jobs are highly overrated by TV shows, I'd probably be a forensic investigator. Cops usually end up getting a lot of crap for giving out speeding tickets and they probably end up doing a lot of boring stuff if they're in a small town. Forensics could be really cool if you got to work in a busy lab with lots of different types of work. From what I understand though, most forensic investigators in real life basically analyze dirty underwear and sheets to look for semen in rape cases.

Forensic Investigator is definitely a cooler job but I'm not sure I'd want to be one.
