    At least 85,000 law enforcement officers across the USA have been investigated or disciplined for misconduct over the past decade, an investigation by USA TODAY Network found.

    Officers have beaten members of the public, planted evidence and used their badges to harass women. They have lied, stolen, dealt drugs, driven drunk and abused their spouses.

    Despite their role as public servants, the men and women who swear an oath to keep communities safe can generally avoid public scrutiny for their misdeeds.

    The records of their misconduct are filed away, rarely seen by anyone outside their departments. Police unions and their political allies have worked to put special protections in place ensuring some records are shielded from public view, or even destroyed.

    Reporters from USA TODAY, its 100-plus affiliated newsrooms and the nonprofit Invisible Institute in Chicago have spent more than a year creating the biggest collection of police misconduct records.

    Obtained from thousands of state agencies, prosecutors, police departments and sheriffs, the records detail at least 200,000 incidents of alleged misconduct, much of it previously unreported. The records obtained include more than 110,000 internal affairs investigations by hundreds of individual departments and more than 30,000 officers who were decertified by 44 state oversight agencies.​

    In most cases, you'd better fend for yourself anyway.

    No, the criminals there, do. Unfortunately, the majority is ruled by the criminal minority element.

    That's your reaction? Not concern over how many officers have been investigated for misconduct, not worry that people will equate investigation with guilt, but a silly racial comment?

    Notice how the 33,000 officers were decertified by 44 states. How many retarded liberals in Congress have been decertified for being retarded? Zero, they run for president...

    I remember a few years back, when the Mayor of Baltimore allowed the ghetto kids to have some fun. Didnt go over too well for the residence of the local area, but the police were polite and didnt do shit, as ordered.

    Across 10 years...
    Avg 650,000 cops per year divided by 8500 avg incidences per year = .0013
