Now for as for everyone complaining, here are some things to think about before your next experience with a cop.
How many people that you work with have been murdered or disabled in the last ten years while doing there job?????
I've had 2 friends murdered(shot and killed) in the line of duty. 4 others that have been shot. Half a dozen that have been injured so badly that they can no longer work and will live with being either paralized or in pain for the rest of their lives. Another couple dozen or so that have permanent injuries(including myself) that prevent them from doing some of the things that they once did.
This is on a department of 700.
All them were just doing there jobs and serving the often ungrateful public.
I'm not saying some of you don't have valid complaints, by any means. Every Dept has a procedure for you to file a complaint. If you just let it go then thats on you.
These are all single incidents that you have described, that have left a negative impact on you with regard to the police. For that I am sorry, not because of the actual incident, but because it reflects badly on us as group and creates even negative stereotypes.
