I know this is false

at least where I'm at. The problem is they aren't taught control. You could look at it the same way, I suppose, but there is a slight difference. Sadly, most people become cops to do good. The sad bit is they are too blinded by their shiny badge to realize when they step over the line from good guy to bad guy. I really do pitty them.

Is this an excuse for their behavior? Absolutely not. It is just a more realistic way of looking at the world. The conversation about the failure of their training and the pathetic way their training teaches them to deal with a situtation could go on indefinitely; I don't have that much time. :)
