Some Insight Into What Cops In My Area Are Like

This is a longish but fascinating video showing how cops believe
they're above the law, & expect preferential treatment from other
cops. Even when this one is arrested for a DUI, he's still treated
better than a civilian would be. Notice the perp's behavior as he
resists arrest. It's incredible that such an immature & irresponsible
person could not only be a cop, but rank rather high.
Revoltistan is in Washtenaw County, where this cop is a lieutenant.

Of course, not all cops here are that bad.
But this shows the low standard set.

I once employed a reserve deputy sheriff
(from a nearby county) for maintenance work.
Some awkward things I discovered....
- He kept his sheriff's hat on the dashboard of his
truck so that when pulled over for DUI he'd get a pass.
(He actually told me this.)
- He beat his girlfriend. (I knew her because she worked
at a local hardware store I frequented.) She said that
he told her to keep quiet about it, or he'd have his cop
buddies go after her family.
- He threatened to beat up co-workers once.
- When I fired him, he stole from me.

It's not so much the bad cops that bug me but the coverups and excuses for the bad apples.

Of course pointing that out can cause one to be accused of being an anarchistic, Biden-loving socialist communist atheist Muslim terrorist (or some combination).

Maybe a Tiger's fan ?.......I've worked with the type you describe(civilian job) and wait he might make the evening news and not in a good way. Leopards can't change their spots.

Wouldn't the cops covering for a bad apple be just as bad as the apple?

He clearly has no respect for the law he's supposed to be enforcing, and seems to think he's above it. How did he ever pass the psychological testing to become a law enforcement officer?

I've binged videos of cops being arrested for DUI.
In every case, one or more of the following happens....
- They're accustomed to asking for "professional courtesy"
- They get some serious charge excused, eg, possession
of a handgun while drunk, resisting arrest.
- The arresting cop expresses reluctance to enforce the
law. This however, serves a useful purpose, ie, to help
the perp feel less hostility towards the arresting cop.
- The perp is treated better than civilians, eg, not handcuffed,
given more leeway in non-compliance, being driven home
after processing.
- Little time in jail, just probation.

I wouldn't point that out about you.
It's so obvious, why bother?
Same reason you don't tell me I'm pretty.

Here cops are super kind.
Even when they stop you to check out everything is all right, they smile at you.
That is actually common here too.
The exceptions to that are the problem.
(I read of police brutality even in Italy.)
And it takes the "good" ones to enable the bad ones.

Observing the drunken cop's behavior, it strikes me
that this isn't his first time being stopped for DUI.
The problem is that he's not being given a pass.
So hiring standards are certainly too low, but the
standards of retention are even lower.

Perhaps this cop became a video star cuz he's in a
jurisdiction where he isn't in their clique. Of the videos
I've seen, not one arrest is by an arresting cop who
works with the DUI cop. This suggests that DUIs are
are made to go away when they work together.
How to manage this?
There's a pattern of body cam footage being ether
altered (omission) or non-existent in some videos.
So the few cops arrested for DUI are just the tip of
a very large iceberg.

here in South Africa the cops gets work, they are thin and fit.
They hold roadblocks to get bribes.
They live off KFC, and grows fatter and fatter.
Eventually they overgrow their clothing.
The precinct commanders are pimps, and drug lords.
If you are white, you better smile a lot, and hope the officer is not a black ANC or EFF Racist.
You will get arrested and threatened if you dont pay bribes.
Everyone now has dashcams to keep these vultures from mistreating you.

The only thing our police can do is to hold roadblocks, and speed traps.
They are totally useless.

Now where you will have one corrupt officer in the USA for every 100, we have 1 lawman, and 99 criminals who are totally incompetant, cant write, and dont know how to handle a firearm.

Our Minister of Police has a primary school diploma, and thinks he is James Bond.
You top that off...

But then, we dont have the most stupidist President anymore.
Nope, Jacob Zuma resigned.
The USA took that crown this year.

To be fair, only the videos showing bad-behaviour are likely to be available and that itself is only within the subset of officers who drink-drive in the first place. There are examples of other people expecting special treatment for one reason or another when they're pulled over too. After all, if these people weren't arrogant and self-centred, they wouldn't be driving drunk in the first place.

As for preferential treatment for police officers, that is perfectly possible (intentional or subconscious) but you can't prove it with a handful of self-selected videos, you need a proper look at some wider statistics to determine that.

Nothing worse than a corrupt cop. When you get a bunch of bad cops running a department etc. Then you've basically got a uniformed criminal gang on your hands.

Straight to the cloud or somewhere?
That would be new.

I'm well aware of selection bias affecting perception.
But the problems shown with crooked, violent, & drunk cops
is still just the tip of the iceberg.
We've a huge problem with cops & the rest of the system.

No, much worse. If it was just about the bad cops then eventually they would be fired, or possibly even arrested. But that doesn’t happen because of the coverups, because they bad cops are protected. And often even when a good cop turns in one of these bad cops nothing happens, or sometimes the good cop gets punished. This is what makes a corrupt system. And that is much much worse than just bad cops.

Body cams only record.
