You know you are a hater too friend, the gov and progressives seem to be your sworn enemy, and you aggressively

I understand your premise, and I do not wish harm to others either, it's not the answer, with the exception of judicial punishment. I think some
reasons people get so infuriated is because, one, police are supposed to serve and protect, and when some lose their temper and become overly
forceful, it kind of seems unreal and unfair. I am speaking of the cases where they did indeed act inappropriately and the court decided so. Also, I
feel that people because police are in a position of power, when others see the abuse(again specific cases) they have a knee jerk reaction that is
similar to witnessing bullies, in that most people do not like seeing someone in a disadvantaged position being taken advantage of. Of course there
are those that do just hate and wish harm against some authority figures, and I guess that is part of human nature. The small numbers you mention of
'bad' police are possibly larger than we think. I would suspect that around 10% of cops in every department across the nation, are, or have acted,
out of control and with less than rational mental faculties. Pure speculation, but those numbers add up.
I do realize that Leo's are faced with the worst aspects of society, and that it hardens their persona, but the problematic officers are beyond just
forceful and detached, they have fallen off the cliff, in a sense, into the depths of vile hatred for anyone of questionable character. Let be
submit, that I am grateful fore law enforcement in general, but I believe the 'exceptional' cases of inappropriate behavior is on the rise. Plus, in
this modern tech world, the behavior is captured and shared, which only adds fuel to the fire from audiences. I hope that more cameras, both within
the police force as well as from bystanders, may help to curb some of the bad behavior, and make a particular cop on the edge, think before he loses
self control and takes his years of frustration out on someone who, while may need to be arrested, does not need to be screamed at and/or beaten
Also, the power they are continued to be granted for controlling citizens seems to be on the uprise, such as questioning people with cameras, not
allowing people to record any instances involving police, and widening their interpretations of 'suspicious' character or situations.
