The police are our friends. When we're in trouble, we wouldn't call our enemy to help us -- and that's why we call the cops.

The police exist to uphold the laws, whether those laws are right or not. They get paid to follow orders. Can individual cops be blamed for upholding laws that may be "wrong" to my eyes? IMO, yes. They can tell right from wrong. They should not fall back on "just following orders" when they uphold laws that should not exist in the first place.
