>30 years ago when involved with gangs and drugs the police were my enemies. Now with a house and family the police are my friend. I have known the police quite intimately from both sides of the looking glass. Keep your nose clean and your chances of having trouble with the man are exceptionally low, and he will be their when your house - car, etc. are robbed. Sure a rare loser may pop up but that is true of every profession. To call all police racist is itself a form of prejudice.

Maybe the ass-rape incident in NYC was 15 years ago. But there are many more crimes committed by cops today. If you want to learn how to kill & get away with it, be a cop. If you want to learn how to steal & get away with it, be a cop.

Just pay attention to the media. Are they right? Are they wrong? Who's telling the truth?
I'd have to say, in these instances, the media usually is. Because I have been on the receiving end of police abuse. Personal experience trumps what anyone else says.

How may times were you arrested? Have you spent time in the holding center or jail? I was arrested numerous times and the police were only rough with me once and that was because I was causing them problems. I also worked the door at several seedy bars in rough parts of town and the police nearly always handled things without violence, very professionally.
When I've needed their help they've responded promptly and helped to fullest extent. This is my personal experience.

That's exactly the point. The Media exists solely to stir the pot. Boring stories do not make money. It's that simple. You are overtly and unnecessarily clumping thousands of good, honest officers with the bad apples of the bunch. It's just like if you said that because of a single Drill Sergeant you had in basic training, all NCOs are now aholes and idiots. It's inaccurate, and down right not unfair. There are good cops out there. But if you relay on the media to see them, good luck to you.

Quite true, crazytanker. None of the Little House on the Prairie stories, instead it's blood guts and gore, and if it's not gory enough, they'll make it up.

JOC, just as not all cops are bad, not all are good either. Maybe when I was a kid a few of those arrests were justified (I completely disagree, but that's for another time). But getting arrested, home invaded without a warrant and computer confiscated without a warrant all because I had a poor opinion of a political figure...? Yeah, my fault. I made the mistake of believing there was still the Freedom of Speech.
