  •  i agreed with you up until the last statement - (0+ / 0-)

    grouping all police into one entity only makes it harder for the good ones to stand against the bad.  there are good cops and there are jaded cops and there are those who shouldn't BE cops.

    one thing they are not is a single organism.

    •  You're right. I didn't work that all the way (5+ / 0-)

      through.  It's tough in this area.  Crime is out of control, and they have a tough, tough job.  There are some great cops out there.

      What I don't like, though, is the way they circle to protect their own hen one off them screws up.  Same with doctors who will never say a word about botched care from a colleague -- or Catholic priests covering for others during the scandals.

      •  on that we agree about the circling of the wagons. (0+ / 0-)

        i do understand, though - since, unless one is a cop, it is hard to know the pressures, the experiences they share.

        like paramedics, like vets, like firefighters, like police - they see some horrific things that most of us are, thankfully, spared from seeing.

        that may be the reason for circling...  and may we NEVER know those experiences...
