    there is no guarantee that there is even a 'police union'. In a lot of places they call themselves an 'association' to avoid the evils of being in a union.

      There is one here, and it only exists to make sure that no policeman is ever held accountable for their actions. There is a reason that no shooting has ever been found anything but justified here, after all. Any attempt at real reform of the system is shut down by the police union. For years we had no review process because the police union told every cop not to cooperate in any way.

      •  That's a rather negative view of a Union (0+ / 0-)

        so it makes me a tad bit uncomfortable but point taken about the power that a Union can have to waylay any internal reforms.
