The Bexar County District Attorney's Office said Gregory Mickel pleaded guilty Wednesday and could face up to a year in jail on each count. He was fired after authorities investigated the woman's claims.

5. Cops who don't break the law or abuse people themselves
but who tolerate such criminal behavior when their colleagues do it are NOT good cops.

There appear to be very few good cops.

6. I've known many more good cops than bad ones
I can't speak for the situation nationwide, but in my experience the good outnumber the bad.
