If actual changes are going to be made in policing across the country the one main way it will

change for the better is for POLICE UNIONS AND THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE change their stance that cops are always right and that they must be defended at all costs...even the cost of other policeman's safety and effectiveness. The unions that justly defend their members MUST make it clear that in order to be defended the police must NOT engage in biased and belligerent behaviors. They MUST not perform illegal actions just to get convictions of people they believe but can't prove committed a crime...like planting evidence. BAD COPS WILL NOT BE DEFENDED. The police unions and communities must clamp down on BAD COPS. They should not be tolerated by communities and GOOD COPS and whistleblowers in blue must be protected and appreciated by their colleagues and communities. The Justice Department must be able to defend when appropriate but charge when necessary.

Until POC see that COPS themselves are not above the law and morally bankrupt nothing else is going to change.

1. Bad cops are endangering good cops.

Some earnest discussion / reflection on mistakes is needed, too.

Sometimes it's bad cops; sometimes it's untrained or undisciplined cops.
