11. good about Frey

but my point is that the TRAINING (and culture) is also a big part of the problem.

They are taught that the civilian is an enemy to be put down.
They're taught to handcuff someone AFTER they have been shot or dead.
They create a culture from top down that pits the police AGAINST the citizens - covering up, justifying anything for their own "safety" at the expense of society.
They reinforce this by RARELY punishing for the worst infractions - and intimidating the "good ones" into silence.

So then you you get the really "bad apples" that find it a *wonderful* place where they have no boundaries and no rules. And it gets worse and worse.

So it's not just the apples in the barrel. It's the actual barrel.

i want to see people talking about not just the bad apples - but the system (barrel) that somehow seems to like bad apples, and hasn't done much about it.
