I'm not a police hater, I'm an abuse hater. I think if you had not selectively read my comment you might have understood this.
Many police are college educated. However, that does not mean they are not under-educated. what is their cultural education? What is their sociological and psychological education? What is their education on the constitution?
We know they are trained how to intimidate. However, are they trained as problem solvers? We know that they are trained to escalate but are they trained as peace makers? We know they get continuing wepons training, but how much continuing education do they get on communications and human interaction? We know that they are trained to "bleed blue", but we don't see any emphasis on "bleeding red,white and blue",i.e the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Go to Police web sites and see the kind of hostility they express for the constitution (it makes their job harder) and the citizens they are supposed to serve. Observe how much they object to and resent citizen oversight - accountability.
If they were better paid, the standards could be higher, the emotional screening could be more selective and their intellectual quality could be higher.
Finally (when you speak of facts), you have no knowledge of what I do for strangers and you have no insight to the fact that I do it without being paid.

He should have pushed the cop down a flight of stairs. This was just ruled on as NOT an assault in a case in Orlando in which a police officer pushed a woman down a flight of stairs. Of course this discounts the event of a "double standard" in which law enforcement can break any law and not be charged as opposed to a member of the public going through the cash draining system for an obviously false allegation.
