For the most part, this accounts for my run ins with law enforcement (aside from the occasional voice mail that police are coming to get me if I don't pay some fine). While I am sure there are some bad, if not corrupt, cops out there, that can be said about just about any profession; just look at the scandals at tOSU and Maryland. But I want to believe that most of the profession is honest and hard working. The job of a policeman sucks; I mean, you never know what is coming around the corner or on the radio. Sadly, anything can happen and a lot of the options are dangerous or life threatening. Yet, most of them run towards the danger to protect us. The ones that go over the top and use excessive force need to be held accountable. The ones that do it right need to not be bunched in with those who do not. Easier said than done, however...
(I watch the show sometimes too - not as good as the COPS - that's an all time classic).
Live PD t is way better than cops because COPs can be edited. Live PD is Live. There is zero editing! I love to watch Deadliest Catch but it is edited so I never know if the producers added drama or if it was real drama. Editing can change the narrative!!
