In defence of those few good cops that are out there. Many of them do report incidents of police brutality, misconduct etc but generally when these allegations are passed up the ranks to be resolved they are the covered up so as to not see the light of day, allowing the bad apples of the police for to continue making their bosses (the corporations) look good.
I remember watching a local police officer use excessive force when I was a bouncer. By excessive I mean slamming a rather drunk patron into the ground, placing a knee in the back of the neck and holding her right arm in such a way that the girl was screaming in pain. Why? Because as she was making her way into a Taxi that i'd flagged down for her to go home in she tripped and stumbled into the officer, who then yelled something about assaulting an officer and proceeded to brutially attack her. I ended up jumping onto the copper, dragging him off her, and holding him down as if he was an abusive punter from the club. I ended up getting jumped by the other 2, dragged off to the station, charge with assaulting police, resisting arrest. Faced the courts and had the case thrown out after showing CCTV footage of the coppers origional attack that prompted me to assist and defend an innocent customer. The courts stated, that because the incident happen on club private property, if I had not intervened I and the club would have been liable to breach of duty of care. The office was charged with assault, found guilty by a jury, the 2 officers who jumped onto me and pounded my head into the pavement were found guilty of use of excessive force, breach of duty of care to the girl (they should have stopped the other officer) and wrongful arrest. They got demoted and suspended from duty, the other officer is still doing time, 6 years. I got commended for standing up for the girl and got nothing other than a broken nose.
