I am quite certain that way more than one third of police officers abuse their authority after a few lessons from their warped colleagues and a few run ins with true butt-heads.
Quite a few officers let their authority go to their head. I have had some negative experiences with police officers that got personal. The only way the situation was resolved is when it was clear as day that I would do what ever it took to make them back off and I didn't give a damn about consequences.
I also know law enforcement officers I would gladly give my life so they could live another day. Their sacrifice and contributions to the community are so great that my sacrifice would be nothing more than a simple thank you.
What you wrote was interesting enough...not sure what you are responding to...maybe it's me
