GAZZ, the problem is that even in the police you will find some scumbags, it is a fact of life, but on the overall police officers are good people.
Becoming a police officer now is a lot more complicated than it used to be, but every police station has different requirements applicants have to go
through to become police cadets. It is also true that police officers go through a lot of crap, but this kind of behaviour is not accepted no matter
the reason. Normally police stations make possible applicants take a polygraph appart from the background check and several other requirements to try
to take good people to be police officers, but nothing is perfect, and sometimes less desirable people get through.
Now, just like most soldiers in the US Armed Forces, or any other Armed Forces, would not take advantage of the war to torture or humilitate
prisoners. Most police officers would not beat up a tied up, defenseless suspect.
