The predictable rhetoric from those in law enforcement is that the “brave men and women in blue” are out there putting themselves in harm’s way in order to serve and protect the rest of us.
The reality, of course, is very different.
Consider the number of incidents in which the police have illegally confiscated cameras, deleted video recordings, even arrested people for filming these “public servants” in action. If they are out there being courageous and righteous, why do they exhibit the mentality of “secret police,” wanting to be able to do what they do without be subjected to the public eye?
