How does the lie that it is only a few bad cops actually work?

    I’ve been busy over the last couple days with company visiting. So I’ve read the replies, but didn’t respond. Let’s summarize.

    1) The Police themselves admit that Police Perjury happens, but argue they have to in order to get guilty convictions for bad guys.

    2) Police Supporters argue that this does not happen because the Cops are awesome. Anyone who disagrees with the cops, must be a criminal.

    3) Estimates from Judges and Lawyers who practice criminal law say that these lies happen in about 1 case out of five. So if there are one hundred criminal cases in court near you today, the police are probably lying in about twenty of them.

    All the flood of videos showing misconduct are just multiple videos of the same bad cop. I’d give this a number, but it doesn’t deserve one. That is just head in the sand.

    The defenders of the cops are really the embodiment of a radical version of the supposed three wise monkeys. Instead of evil however, they refuse to see, hear or speak of police misconduct.

    Whenever I see a cop, that cop is by him/herself in an automobile (with the exception of various social events) and that cop acts on his/her own. It could be a good cop just doing his/her duty, or a crappy cop who's in a bad mood and wants to take it out on somebody he/she has pulled over. As he/she is acting by him/herself, the other cops aren't around and thus he/she isn't terrified of the other cops and if another cop pulls up, he/she can create any story he/she wants, to the negative of the person pulled over.
    As I have a bad habit of being a bit lead-footed, I am pulled over periodically. I keep it friendly and they keep it friendly. I comply with everything the cop says and he/she stays friendly. The end.
    If you are given crap every time you are dealt with, the I suggest you take a critical evaluation as to how you behave when you are pulled over.
    The moment you start demanding to know why you were pulled over, you are headed down the wrong road. Produce your driver's license and registration, smile and let him/her initiate the conversation. He/she will immediately indicate why you were pulled over, or ask if you know why you were pulled over. Personally, I just say, I was going to fast. Most of the time I get a ticket, on rare occasions, I get off with a warning. No matter. Just sign the paperwork and you're on your way. You can pay the ticket or go to court and challenge it.
    If you are finding yourself being beat on by cops, it's because you might want to stop being confrontational at protests.
