The problem is partially that some people feel that anyone in authority is correct, especially against minorities. Plus, it always turns into a political issue, and stupid moron Repugnican media whores always take the side of cops, because they are apparently ordained by God to shoot colored and wetbacks, or some such racist nonsense.Originally posted by Chemicalsuperfreak
Every few months or so you'll hear about the cops beating or shooting somebody to death, usually black, with eye witness saying it was completely unjustified, and the cops getting off scott free. And I'm willing to bet that the ones we see and read about are just the tip of the iceberg.
Not that I'm saying all cops are bad. They're just human. And humans break laws. And power corrupts.
There's supposed to be all kinds of methods to keep corrupt cops out of the uniform but I think the system has broken down and corrupt cops run free.
