I wonder if it has something to do with the younger officers growing up in very different times than their older colleagues. I've been stopped a few times by the civvy police, and i always found the older ones more repsectfull towards you...if you were respectfull back.
Do you see a specific reason for the way "some" of the police treat suspects?

The police in uk and usa have gained more technology and in many ways they think they are gods over peoples lifes.
Of course serial killer types have always joined the police, but today they really are going to town on the way they act.

They should really raise the age limit required to be a police officer in this country.
you raise a good point about rappers and their views on the police. (edit to clarify that the majority of hip hop artists were black in the old school days you refered, I'm not stating ofcourse, that all hiphop/rappers are black)But those views are entirely valid, there's been alot of racism toward black people over the years, from the police. I think it's just shifted to a more equality based system. "you're all getting a kickin, black,white or green"

police havent changed a bit. however, coverage and fear mongering have changed a fair bit. if you listen to any of the origional old school hip hop it basically all concerns the police and their abuse of power. this may just be the perspective of minorities but im sure the same issues apply to all people and all police
