The shocking truth about the police officers that are there to protect us is that many of them are not doing a very good job at it. If you can only imagine the ones that make the news just think about the ones that don’t. All the people that have been wronged because somebody with a badge decided to ruin their day or didn’t like the way they looked or talked. It used to be you called nine-one-one when you needed help, or we’re in trouble. Now you might want to think twice before you dial those numbers.
The officers that show up might not exactly be there to help you as you think. Even a random traffic stop anymore is a horrifying thought. Personally, if a police officer is pulling me over I would drive to a very very public place. As long as you do stop and if you have a cell phone, you call nine-one-one yourself and tell them what you’re doing or the local police department you are not breaking the law. Just because a cop car looks like a cop car doesn’t necessarily always mean it is. Even when it is just because there’s a cop inside of it doesn’t mean you have to do every single thing this person says.
There are laws they must follow as well. They do not just get to pick randomly who they want and drag people onto the street beat them shoot them and handcuff them. This kind of behavior has gone on for too long and thanks to the power of video the shocking truth about these horrible officers is coming to life. Don’t get me wrong there are thousands of men and women who put their lives on the line to protect and serve their communities around the country.
These individuals are true heroes. Unfortunately, the same holds true that one bad apple spoils the barrel. If you’re an officer and know officers that behave like this, do not tolerate it and make it a point that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated.
