These are dangerous times to be a police officer. I think a lot of it is due to a few police officer who are too quick to use their gun and use excessive force. They've hurt the reputation of many good police officers across this country. I don't doubt much of the excessive force is due to the constant weekly frustration police officers face on the streets. Police are only human, and you con only push someone's button enough times until they crack.
I think too many times, a simple traffic stops turns into the driver being confrontational with the police. I think Attorney Joey Jackson said it best. He told his sons if they ever get pulled over, to answer the police officers questions and not to be confrontational. They can always make their case and complaint in court at a later time.
No such thing as a good police officer in the US anymore.
Well that's a lie.
