Protecting life, liberty and property would be a worthy occupation. Too bad cops don't do much of that. Instead, they enforce "laws" which systematically injure and violate life, liberty and property. They have become "law enforcers," rather than "peace officers," and they get paid with money extorted from unwilling victims. They are politicians' thugs, not public servants. No doubt some of them "mean well," and really care about protecting people from violent criminals. But their willingness to enforce unjust and tyrannical laws makes them villains, each and every one.
