I think many, if not most cops are A-holes. Seems to attract a certain type lose.....erhhhh ...person. And, I have two FB "friends" who are retired law enforcement. They post the worst, lunatic fringe stuff. Frequently with outrageous racial content. Having said that, community policing is a dream. Too many self centered butts. And, as, McTiger asks, Why didn’t some of the 911 callers step in and solve the problem w/o resorting to calling the police.
