The police are a politicized entity, staffed at the top by political and social climbers. As such, they will mete out whatever punishment the
government want on members of the public. The more brutal that treatment is, the better as it makes clear who is boss!
A fine example is, as I see it, was the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes(sp) a few years ago. The government and, in particular, the Metropolitan
Police had been spouting off about their get-tough shoot to kill policy when dealing with terrorism. As such they needed to prove the point, make an
example and provide a bullet-ridden corpse to wave at the public in another "step out of line and this could be you" message.
The fact that they killed an innocent man, conspired to cover it up - both at the political and police levels - and promoted the officer running the
operation AND the shooter long before any inquiry was allowed, shows the corruption and contempt. Not one person was sacked or held accountable. Job
done, point made!
The police are now nothing more than government enforcers, not protectors of property or the public. As such, they get a free pass to hand out
beatings, or worse, when the public get uppity and demand change from their aaleged representatives.
