I have to disagree with you, while i do agree that yes police are human beings like you in me, it is just that they are humans and they can't be
categorized by their peers. Throughout my personal associations with police forces in different areas, while there were a minority of "cool" cops,
the vast majority i have met through my experiences appeared to believe they were above the law doing illegal search and seizures, harassment, and
then completely lying about it when they go to court.
I honestly can only think of two times out of too many where i met someone who was arrested without being denied at least one of their rights and lots
of times I'm told they don't get their miranda rights read but in the end it still doesn't make any difference when its ur word against theirs.
In the end tho i feel it has to correlate with the environment the cops find themselves in. Like cops in new york with some serious crimes to worry
about aren't gonna be wasting as much time harassing the same stereotypes as with the place i live being a majority white suburban where their
biggest issues is youth throwing a party, so in theory they get a little bored with their job where for example they saw me when i was crippled
limping down the street trying to get home a couple years ago from school and held me there for hours because i was deemed as suspicious for no real
apparent reason besides they wanted to go fishing for high schoolers with drugs.
In the end anyone saying that cops do an amazing job holds as much ground as someone saying they do a #ty job because you can't judge groups as you
