Im probably going to catch **** for this one.... but I am just speaking from my experiences as both a "War on Terror" veteran and a former Police Officer....
Some of it MAY have to do with the amount of combat veterans we are recruiting into police departments. Those combat veterans conducted operations in an environment where they treated the local population however they wished to do so, with a dominating sense of authority over them........
Then they became police officers in your town. Conducting similar patrols......stopping people for similar activity...... and being taught how to "articulate" the reasons for their extra-4th amendment activities in their reports....
Thats just my two cents.
Die hard military supporters....go ahead... bring it.

I was once told (although I do not mean to post this as a universal statement, but I found some humor, and some empirical expierence to be true)
When they grow up, High School bullies pursue two career paths
Dumb ones become cops, smart ones become salesmen.
Where am I going with this? I absolutely think SOME bullies pursue careers where they leverage power over people, and sadly, the LEO commmunity provides them that path and chance.
1% bad apples and all that.
It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

Are there some who block recording and act like general jack asses? Yes. Are there some who mess up orders? Yes.
Posting videos where officers give two ****s less if you are recording them isn't flashy and controversial.... and thus it isn't really talked about much.
Its all about perception.
