It's sad. My nephew is a dispatcher so he's heavily pro-police. He posts the stories about the good policemen the media don't.
It's a shame there's some bad apples though
Oddly enough, I'm pro police, though you wouldn't have guessed it from my posts over the years. What I'm against is unfettered police unleashed on the general population, with government complicity in holding them to a different standard than is used on the rest of us. If you commit a crime as a policeman, the consequences shouldn't be less because you wear the blue. That said, I understand that there is a certain amount of latitude in judgement that is necessary to do the job.
