While I agree with you that non police commit the same crimes ... my point is that my tax dollars FEED these criminals, and they are less likely to be charged for their crimes, and their punishment is more likely to be less than what the average citizen would get.<quoted text>
while I commend your research; you could find 5 guys that committed similar atrocities from the general population, on a daily basis.
kinda like "googling" the word water.
too many hits for the size of the population vs. the particular job force.
you wanna see a trend, research how many are minority or white, vs. the same in population. then break down religious sects, with abuses, then private business.
point being, there's a-hole felons among us.
arm yourselves, be aware of your surroundings at all times, and don't put yourself in dangerous unpredictable situations...
in other words, do it yourself, don't rely on someone else to save your ass.
By the way, these stories are daily stories from the CATO institute. http://www.policemisconduct.net/
