You wanna know where the good cops are? they are out there actually doing their jobs, going out and keeping drugs off the streets. They do the job without recognition, they do it despite the shitty pay, the risks. Because they want to help others and me of them don't come home.
Those are the real heroes, the real officers that ensure we can get to work and buy the things we need in relative safety. The men who have been committing police brutality are no better than common scum and deserved to be shamed and thrown in prison. Their selfish and disgusting acts make it harder for the honest cop to do his work and make it difficult for people who do need help to call upon them because they don't trust them.
Not every cop is an abusive asshole with a massive Patriot Missile sized stick up their ass. And not every one of them is a saint with only the public good in mind. That is life and the same can be said about every group out there. We only really focus on the worst and act as if the best parts don't exist. Its one of the worst parts of our nature.
Not saying that there aren't any, Cause I've seen them. I follow Officer Tommy Norman on instagram, but there sure is a silence when It comes to most of them.
On the Snitches get stitches, People don't want to cooperate with an entity that they don't trust, or don't believe doesn't respect them. They don't trust the cops and are terrified of the gangs who live in their neighborhoods. The cops don't, I think that would make anyone keep their mouth shut. There isn't anymore community policing. They are either Poorly trained and we definitely need a reform. http://www.joincampaignzero.org/http://www.vice.com/read/an-ex-baltimore-cop-just-came-clean-on-twitter-about-all-the-corruption-he-saw-on-the-job-624

This isn't some new thing that's just been going on since Ferguson, We've been saying this stuff for decades but no one cared until people started videoing them. You can't deny something shoved in your face. Poor people have been getting shit on for decades and decades and we've been screaming for help decades and decades with no answer.
Don't get me wrong I love cops, I wanted to be one, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to hold them accountable, nor am I going to allow silence.
But I'm getting on my soapbox, an I don't want to cause any unintentional disputes (as I tend to get passionate about this topic) I need to get back to my character sheets.
