I want you to compare something here. Among the people in Ferguson, there were looters, rioters, and people trying to start trouble. During the
protests, the protesters put out fires that these troublemakers started and defended against looters and many of them stopped it from becoming an
all-out riot. This is how citizens deal with their fellow citizens who are not behaving as they should.
Now compare that with police. Where are the cops who stop their partners from beating somebody to death? Where are the cops who testify against
other cops who shoot unarmed people everyday? Where are the police who speak out against and whistleblow on corrupt officers? If they exist, they
are very few and far between.
That is why it is fair to paint them with a broad brush. I agree that there are many decent police out there but the ones who do nothing in the face
of corruption are just as deserving of our criticism as the ones committing the evil.
