I know for myself it makes me rethink the whole cops are jerks thing, but I am a little bias going into criminal justice myself.
I would have more respect for cops if 95% of the time they weren't just driving around profiling cars and people trying to fill a fuckin quota. You wanna save babies and shit? Thats great we need you guys for that and I respect that. What we don't need is the sharks that they have become that get a boner for giving tickets and making arrests that aren't necessary for the "safety" of the community. This is why you guys are stereotyped as dicks.
