37. For every one good officer I've dealt with . . .
. . . there have been four bad ones. Mostly verbal bullying and insults. Never been assaulted, but one brandished a riot baton at me at the Sept 2005 DC Anti-War protest merely for walking in the wrong direction. I was luckier than others that day, apparently.
