41. cop bashing posts are becoming
so normal here that people are justifying a correlation between 'some' bad cops as proof that they are 'all' bad.

How is this any different that reading the freeper posts that say one bad Moslem makes them all bad?

I have had to work often with cops (no I'm not one) with my job and so very many, I'd say a vast majority are decent human beings.
