The police, like all bureaucratic departments in America, is a large bloated organization that local governments spend millions on so that the tax dollars collected can be used to collect even more taxes in the form of citations.

The police has many different branches, from the Sheriff's department, to the local metrocops, to the ultra-corrupt state trooper. The bulk of law enforcement has little to do with 'protecting and serving', but rather the taxation of people. The more the police can pin on you, the more you have to pay for a citation, possibly even bail.

Police officers themselves can be fair, but considering most of them are taught to put themselves at a higher standard than the average person, don't count on it. Most of them are young egoists. Forget all these scrubs here saying how police never get respected and always 'spit on'. If you spit on a cop here in the city, you'd most likely end up being carried out of a church with six of your friends and family carrying your casket.

State troopers are notoriously famous for full searches of you or your vehicle, even if the offense was civil. Metrocops may do the same, but normally only if you are black. Metrocops usually ARE racist, and state troopers flat out hate everyone who isn't a cop. However, this isn't the true problem. The real problem is that they have the authority to shoot and kill you, whether you were reaching for a gun or your registration. Don't bother asking if you can either, because usually they are too busy telling you to STFU.
Don't worry, even though you've just been killed/badly injured for reaching for the keys to turn your car off after being pulled, your car impounded, and you've lost your job, all because you didn't put your turn signal on early enough; the police department is always there to 'protect and serve' you. Usually in the form of a full cavity search.

A group of people sworn to uphold the law. Unfortunately the only way to be a truly honest member of the police is to know nothing about fellow police.

Joe felt he was an honest policeman, even though he knew:

Officer X was protecting two drug houses
Officer Y has sex in his cruiser.
Officer Z said he was patrolling and was really at his house playing Xbox.
Officer Z also kept a sack of weed and .357 magnum he found in a suspects car.

Joe said he is honest. One has to wonder if Joe know he would have been fired for failing to reporting 1% of what he has seen in the private sector.
Joe is with the police. He told me he is honest. Then again he never reported witnessing Officer X planting evidence five times. By his on admissions half the department is shady.

a lazy person who goes to college and picks the easiest major (criminal justice) where they don't learn anything about the us constitution. these people don't know what the bill of rights is and stomp all over it when enforcing unconstitutional laws passed by legislatures just trying to collect more tax from the populus. police are ignorant to how brainwashed they are by their training and are ignorant to the fact that they are just henchmen for the lawmakers. they believe that they're doing a service to society when busting a couple kids for underage drinking or casual drug use. this is a side effect of their being brainwashed which makes them think that people aren't be able to decide for themselves what's good for them.
the police were unconsitutional... again.

The lowest echelon of the law-enforcement heiarchy in most countries. They recieve little respect, mainly because most people refuse to accept responsibility for actions they know to be illegal.
The Police didn't make you smoke that crack. But they did bust your apathetic ass for it.
