Clearly we need to eliminate the attitudes which precipitate the problem incidents. Clearly we need to eliminate the "us vs them" attitude among peace officers. When peace officers distinguish between "officers" and "civilians", clearly we have an attitude problem. Officers must clearly see themselves as members of the civilian population and more importantly servants of the civilian population. Clearly we need to eliminate the attitude that misbehaviour among "officers" is to be, or can be, overlooked. An otherwise innocent peace officer who overlooks or covers for misconduct on the part of another peace officer is, and must be made to understand that he is, partially guilty of the misconduct he has covered.
I agree with those comments. Thanks for posting them.
