I saw cops who were drug addicts, thieves, murderers, pedophiles, you name it. And during that same time regardless of the offfense, I saw the department ALWAYS try to cover EVERYTHING up unless they had absolutely no other choice!
Frank Serpico was the first police officer in the history of the New York Police Department to step forward to report and subsequently testify openly about widespread, systemic corruption payoffs amounting to millions of dollars.
. . . seven of the Chicago Police Department's most elite cops were charged with crimes including armed robbery, aggravated kidnapping and home invasion- and one of them was even accused of planning a murder-the nation's second largest police force was thrown into turmoil.
And in the case of the cops in these particular videos, I don't think they're corrupt at all. They're just ignorant dumbasses who don't know better with terrible training, a crap organization, and horrible leadership. Most cops aren't like that either.

Yep at least 90% of police are pure animals that just want the power to wreck lifes.
You could go on and on about abuse of power with these low lifes they call police in our society.

Why is it that because there is corruption and abuse in the system some people seem to take the radical stance that ALL police are corrupt and scum?
