I fully understand that you have your reasons to dislike police.
It still doesn't make ALL of them bad, but I do see where you're coming from.
I personally know several active police and one retired sergeant, hell I'm related to two of them.
I know what they have put up with, both these days and 20-30 years ago.
The continual abuse, both physical and mentally coupled with numerous high stress situations are going to crack many. Being a cop isn't some cushy
And this is the problem, hardly anyone wants to be a cop so the entry exam becomes less strict, which let's in too many people who can't handle the
authority and power given to them.
