but there is nothing intrinsically different about police officers that makes them honest.
You mean other than their training? Compare what an officer is trained to see to a recent shooting in my area. The call came into 911 that a person, the son, had a knife to his mother's throat
, had locked her in a bedroom and said he was going to kill her.
When the police arrived they found, oddly, the son with a knife to his mother's throat. After repeated commands to drop the knife an officer fired a single shot at the criminal who later died.
After all that, not only is the mother defending the son who just tried to kill her, claiming her son had no knife and complaining the police didn't have to shoot him, but the girl who called 911 saying her uncle had a knife to his mother's throat later said there was no knife.
Interestingly, the mother also said: "We had a little fight, argument like families have arguments
." Apparently in their world pulling out knives and threatening to kill one's mother is what happens in every family during arguments.
Yup, just another day in the city where the police are always wrong even when they witness the crime.
