Quote--In my general opinion i believe yes that when an officer has done something wrong the public becomes upset. But the officers who wake up everyday and try to good for the world are the most upset. Because in today's age of media the "bad cops" seem to always get more air time than the many other good acts that good cops perform every day. Because let's face it their will always be a few bad apples, but that doesn't spoil the whole bunch. Because their are bad people in every profession but it seems that when it is a cop it becomes a heightened problem. Why can't we come to the realization that we as a nation need to support our police because a world without police is a world i don't want to live in.-- end quote. Said by an officer in training (student) in my speech and debate class.
General Public can turn a blind eye somewhat but good cops are often directly pressured into becoming bad cops and have to fight a lot of peer pressure to avoid it.
Good and bad cops tend to jump to each others defense even if the cop theyre defendung doesnt deserve it. Its naturel they would have that reaction but they have to learn to be less biased. The whole systems screwed up b
You don't see Police officers trying to purge and loot stores and cities do you?
Good cops are upset that they get tarnished by the bad. They even may become targets because of the action, however, many are still complicit in shielding bad behavior.
