Reading that just adds another line to my "why I roll my eyes when police officers get bent out of shape that nobody 'respects' law enforcement anymore" list.

It's very hard to take seriously the notion of a force that is there to protect and serve the people (excuse me, i mean 'civilians', since we now use military terms for our police/citizenry difference) but at every turn protects corrupt, vicious thugs because they wear a uniform.

I do realize that's somewhat unfair, because it's easy to cherry-pick the shocking & terrible stories, but if you hold yourselves up as being this thing that is 'protector of everyone', you are stuck with being held to a higher standard that might seem a bit unfair.

Yes, scientists do much good. But a country run by these arrogant gods of certainty would truly be hell on earth
