Why don't you sign up and try to change the system from within? (note no sarcasm smilie).

People on the Left who denigrate LEOs never cease to amaze me. They bitch endlessly, but would never dirty themselves, their soul, their karma, or risk their lives by actually getting down into the trenches and becoming a LEO. Just like pacifists who would never dirty themselves, their soul, their karma, or risk their lives, but would not hesitate to call 911.

Their lives DO matter because they do a dirty job most people (including myself) shrink from doing. Do some of them fuck up? Certainly, and the ones who do should be held accountable. But stating all LEOs are racist authoritarians, is like saying all Muslims are terrorists.
