"do not judge all police by..."
This line is the entire problem. Folks who say this simply do not understand what they see and still have their childhood programming working
Here is why: Walter, a cop sees an old man being beaten by a teenager. Walter runs to stop it, as it is his job (even though no law requires him to do
Walter sees a cop beating up old man, Walter acts in an entirely different manner and allows the beating to play itself out.
People cannot see what is going on here. There are two standards for Walter. For Walter, violence is subjective, yet for the rest of us, violence is
objective. Walter has a moral block placed in his head the rest of us do not. Walter can see violence as good and bad, while the rest of us are
programmed to see violence as bad.
Since all cops have this programming, you cannot say, "please do not judge all cops by..." as you MUST judge them all by the bad cops. Yes, one bad
cop does make the entire bunch rotten, if only because they all are forced to operate under "rules" that cause their pre-cop moral compass to go
If police demanded their system control their actions we might be able to say "one does not define the rest" but because cops as a mass work to curb
all controls, review themselves, investigate themselves and operate based on a moral code they made up themselves - a code that looks nothing like
ours, you have to agree the problems is all.
