the reason you are fighting an up hill battle is that police when they put on that uniform are swearing an oath to "protect and serve"......this is their job description...period.....yes there are good cops out there,but the problem lies when u have a rotten core...sadly the good cops will not speak against the bad ones for varying internal reasons and here lies the problem.......
so it is quite simple when the police do the wrong thing like fabricate charges and use excessive force it gets frowned upon....
n 1856, the U.S. Supreme Court (South v. Maryland) found that law enforcement officers had no duty to protect any individual. Their duty is to enforce the law in general. More recently, in 1982 (Bowers v. DeVito), the Court of Appeals, Seventh Circuit held, "...there is no Constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered by criminals or madmen. It is monstrous if the state fails to protect its residents... but it does not violate... the Constitution." Later court decisions concurred: the police have no duty to protect you.
Officers Leave Note For Drunk Man They Helped Get Home
Two Hertfordshire police officers have left a note with a drunk man who they helped get home.
It read: "David - We found you staggering in the road on your way home from Watford. You were so drunk we were worried you wouldn't get home in one piece! So we gave you a lift home. Please don't get that drunk again! Love from Cagney and Lacey.
