Are cops in the united states held to an impossible standard?


it seems like cops in the United States not only are expected to serve the public, protect the innocent and clean up the streets, but they must be Marry Poppins while doing it. God forbid they take up your time are treat you harshly for "breaking the law". im not saying there aren't cops who dont sometimes go overboard. from my point of view though almost every instance that makes the news the so called "victim" could have avoided the situation by 1, not breaking the law and 2, just complying like a reasonable adult.

    Right on Joe Friday. You're right. That's pretty much says it all. Thanks for the great vid.

    isnt that a 2 way street though? especially considering their guard is always up, and rightfully so, due to being in dangerous situations daily.

    so you disagree then that most people could have avoided confrontation with cops by either not breaking the law, or just complying like and adult?
