Most police officers do a very good job in sometimes very difficult circumstances. Some, particularly those who work in areas of high crime, often put their lives in danger in an effort to protect law-abiding citizens. Unfortunately though, there are a few bad apples who like to throw their weight around. Some police officers can get a little drunk on the power that’s entrusted in them when they put on a uniform. There are those who feel almost invincible, and to some degree above the law themselves, when they’re on duty.
