I will give you an example of my personal experience.
When I was a kid, my best friends dad was a cop. Once in a while his partner would come over and the two of them would have a beer and start telling
stories. One I remember in particular is how they set this guy up for a foot chase.
Bobby's dad was the chaser, and his partner was waiting at the top of a staircase. When the guy got to the stairs they tripped him and sent him
sailing down the stairs full speed.
I can still hear the laughter as they reminisced about the day.
His dad ended up being head of property, About once a month the paddy wagon would pull in front of his house and start unloading items. You name it ,
it was there. Guns knives TV's everything .
He would head out of state about 2x a year to his property and load up his truck with all the goodies. I can only assume he was selling them, but I am
speculating. I can remember going to the police auction with my old man, and Bobby's dad would walk him down the isle putting SOLD 50cents SOLD
one dollar on items before the auction ever began. Every cop there knew what was going on and they all were in on it. The only thing that ever made
it to the public was the items no one in the station wanted.
When I hear how rare bad cops are.....I kinda roll my eyes and think...boy are you naive. They are a fraternity,
Get caught speeding and show your badge
Get caught running a red light and show your badge
Give the wrong cop a ticket and his union rep will call your union rep and it wont be pretty
but abuse a citizen and everything will be just fine
