Look, I'm not going to defend poor policing. I've seen the videos - there're some ego driven narcissists in the role, for sure.
But you and I agree, good police officers make a difference, no? And so we should try to draw people into the force who sincerely wish to make a difference.
I think LABTECH767 made a good point. Overall, corruption and poor policing has decreased, and I'd hope this is an ever increasing trend. Ultimately, I think people are holding police to an ever higher standard and this can only improve the service delivery over time.
