SOME police men and women make it very hard not to hate and despise ALL police men and women. No compassion and fear come to mind (possibly lazyness
and some type of sadistic satisfaction) within these police men and womens' minds. If they had compassion and empathy, then maybe this event would
have never occurred. I say all this with granting that the story is 100 percent true of course.

The problem is that "SOME" is getting more and more frequent, that it might as well be ALL.
This is not a rare thing. This is NOT something that just happens once in a while, by the rare kook. This IS HAPPENING more and more. Everyday
there is another story of how police are over extending their authority over normal citizens.
I predict that within 25 years, we will witness in the US what is just starting to happen in Britain. Citizens everywhere will start rising up
against the police. At first, it will be performed by some really disturbed folks. But then you will begin to see something like what happened to
this lady, only the ending being that the cop got his butt handed to him, after normal law abiding citizens give him an old fashioned bully beat
This is starting to happen in England
, and I believe it will start happening
here in the US. Although, I'd give it 25 years.
The real sadness about this is that, the police serve a vital function in our society. Namely, protecting us from criminals, but more and more I see
this level of ineptitude whereby the question becomes
"You were put here to protect us, but who protects us from YOU?"
If you had to have as much education to serve as a policeman as you do a doctor, this wouldn't happen.
