I didn't day all cops are bad people. I personally have never had a bad experience with a cop. of course I'm white and have had very little contact with police.
the fact is that police have just as many, if not more, bad people than any other sub set of people. police have power and authority. that power attracts certain kinds of people, especially people who like to have authority over people. pretending all cops are heroes and that they are unfairly accused of things only protects the numerous douche bags who do abuse their power. the police go to great ends to cover up the crimes of its officers because of their "brotherhood". that is what undermines public faith in police. if you want to build trust get rid of that protection mentality and actually hold them accountable for their actions.
Police should have their own media output, besides COPS or other reality shows. This would help build a good amount of trust after hearing about what they have to say as people, talking about their experiences and job expectations, without having to present a rebuttal to accusations they face everyday.
Cops are like bad people right?
I was thinking the same buff!!
it would just be another media figure spinning information to fit it's agenda. police commit crimes all the time. hearing a police shill saying all cops are heroes isn't likely to convince anyone of anything.
So yeah, I do not think having a news outlet for police is the best idea. Maybe educating people of all colors about law and justice would be a better idea. Especially on CNN. They should have a show about it.
The black community continues to commit crime because of project culture. Therefore, they get arrested by police, and most police officers happen to be white. Therefore, they feel like they are discriminated against. Trust most likely cannot be built unless the social structure of alot of African-Americans changes. By that I mean, pursuing education, jobs not drugs, and disipline. I use therfore alot. I need to learn other transistions.
