5. i've been called names hundreds of times
and not made an arrest. i once had a guy say "i'll rip your head off and piss down the hole" etc. whatEver.

i am more than sure that on occasion, some cops go overboard and arrest somebody who insulted them.

the operative difference is that they are violating the law when they do so. in france, it's a CRIME to do so.

and in no case, can the police SUE somebody for claiming excessive force, etc. note that in the instant case, it's allegations made by people who weren't even there (the parents) when the alleged abuse happened. so, there is NO way they could be sued in the US, among other reasons, because you would have to prove they KNEW the abuse never happened.
