There are police that feel like laws don't apply to them. I think it starts with little things like going through stop signs and red lights while on the job. Even if they get stopped in their own car, they just flash their badge and go one their way. Starts small like getting a free coffee from the local diner. Pretty soon they assume that they deserve the free coffee. Soon they start thinking that they deserve more. I'm not a cop myself..just my opinion from observing life.
We are still people! Some good some bad. I busted a dozen COPs in my career, cost me a job once because one was my supervisor, but would do it all over again. I'm I perfect, hell no, just honest enough to believe in the oath I took 3 1/2 decade ago!
