If a police officer’s job is to uphold and enforce the law — literally their one and only job description — and you knew that almost half of police officers think they’re above the law, what does that say? If half of them admitted it on a survey how many more do you think actually feel this way?
What if I told you half of doctors don’t care about patient well-being, or half of farmers don’t care about growing crops, or half of our presidents dislike the public?
The law in itself is super problematic and terrible, but if on top of that police officers don’t even adhere to that at the very least, what does that tell you about the justice system?
Hey you know what helps lower police brutality? Shitting all over them daily and making their jobs that much harder. Don’t forget that as paramilitary positions, these men and women are VOLUNTARILY putting their lives on the line to protect your ability to downtrodden them on a regular basis. While this doesn’t excuse the behavior of the corrupt, it unfortunately means that the guys who are out there who are putting their own lives second to yours get the short end of the stick while they are out on the street. I’m not saying theses facts are wrong or that you all should change your opinion on police corruption, but please PLEASE think about what’s going on in the minds of those people. Done.
