And it will never change, as long as the office prosecuting police malfeasance is also the same one who depends on police to get his job done. There
is an inherent conflict of interest involved in the DA prosecuting cops.
The only way to eliminate it would be to institute a legal authority dedicated (and incentivized by) to prosecuting misbehavior by LEOs. If your job
depended on CATCHING cops instead of co-operating with them, then you'd see this sort of thing get the attention it deserves.
However, you've got a double conflict of interest - somehow, the police are allowed to investigate themselves, with the expected results, and the
non-LEO authority charged with regulating their behavior is also dependent on the ones they're regulating. Therefore, nothing gets done, and never
will. You start some sort of "LEO-BI" at the federal level in the DOJ, and you'd see an instant change.
