    They generally don't however. Most crime wouldn't experience any sort of substantial increase without police and they are generally late to situations when there is a need of their services.

    Don't say "sorry" when you don't mean it. Your views on cops are well known to me. Not only would you not help, you'd be smiling while watching.

    Unpopular Police Officer Thinking About Committing Racially Motivated Offense For A Little Support

    INDIANAPOLIS—Tired of being overlooked by everyone in his precinct, unpopular Indianapolis Police Department officer Kyle Norris told reporters Wednesday he was considering committing a racially motivated offense to generate a little support. “To be honest, I’m not the most well-known or looked-up-to guy around here, but I’m thinking that if I get caught up in a controversy after shooting a minority resident under questionable circumstances, things would really change for me,” said Norris, who added that having his coworkers immediately rally around him after the incident, watching consecutive nights of public demonstrations defending his actions, and finally receiving praise directly from the chief of police would be a nice change of pace from his day-to-day life as an ignored and unappreciated member of the force.

    No, watching also puts you in danger. It's best to move along if you see a cop on the losing side of a situation.

    That's what I've been saying. If those "people" still feel their lives are worth living after all this, that community has failed.

    I don't agree at all, but then I don't personally have a fear of police or law enforcement and I've never committed a crime, although I have sped on occasion and accept my punishment when caught. I believe police prevent lots of crime, particularly in large cities, by their very presence as well as by investigating crime before and after it happens.

    Is it?

Most cops now think they are no longer civilians and instead believe they are a paramilitary unit that can enforce the law however they see fit.

    I think that's going to an extreme. Most people follow the law and appreciate it when the town they live in is safer at night or when officers do all the many things they need to like direct traffic after an accident, respond to an emergency call.
    Your post is definitely in the minority.
