It really is like an enchantment spell that was cast upon these costumes.
When the people stop letting this abuse continue, by stepping in when the police ARE abusing authority, then that will change the whole paradigm and break that enchantment spell.
Try it once. I bet you at least get an obstruction of justice charge. At worse killed.
There is an even more fundamental question to be asking, should some other human being really have the power to tell you what to do? I say hell no! It will always end up with abuse of power! Always!

So a person should be allowed to rape a ten year old child, rob a bank, steal a purse, throw a fistful of dynamite into a grocery store and do any harm they want to?
