In recent weeks, There have been numerous videos going viral of police brutality taking place in several cities across the nation. During the COVID-19 pandemic, while quarantining; I have
seen at least four myself. When these videos surface, I tend to read the comments section to
see what others have to say about these incidents. Often two quotes can be found. “All cops
aren’t bad cops” and/or “All of us aren’t like that”, which makes me pose the question; Are there
any good officers left?
Before I continue, I don’t want anyone to think this is where I begin police bashing; because I wouldn’t do that. As a writer; my job is to uncover the truth; as well as, introduce thought-provoking ideas with my opinion on subjects. And, that is what I intend to do. First, let us consider what is perceived as a good cop? Maybe our concepts of the word aren’t the same, so we may differ in our overall view. Is it getting to know the people in the community that they patrol? Doing the very job you signed up for and are paid to do? Is it going above and beyond the call of duty? Who are we to judge? Better yet, should we be judging? I mean, we are the citizens and taxpayers that officers are hired to protect and serve.
