I'm sorry I called you naive when you're obviously just defending your profession, but all I said to begin with was that there are some shitty cops running around, and then when you took issue with that I provided a relevant example from my own lifetime. I don't think that's going too far. I never claimed that it's some sort of epidemic or something that is worse now than in the past. It's a problem anywhere you have police. I mean I even said in the first place that criminals are a much bigger problem. I'm not bashing the police here.
And broadly speaking, yeah I still do think it's naive to imply that corruption is hardly an issue anymore. I'm no anarchist but corruption is always an issue with authority in my opinion, which is why I oppose more federal government.
edit: removed some "fuckings" out of respect for law enforcement.
