My opinion is, I know there are some decent cops, but there a shit ton of crooked ones, & ones that take their authority & think they are better than everyone. They treat civilians like crap, which I've been a witness to it many times.
My friend was standing outside a 7-11 type store, smoking a cigarette (kinda in a bad neighborhood, but he wasn't doing anything wrong), but cops came up to him, hassled him, yelled & cursed at him, called him names, made him get on the ground, they stepped on his back, & all over his knuckles. Then they just left. I honestly don't like cops, but I have met a few, & I wanna say, maybe a handful or more, of good, decent cops.
