My own general, overall opinion of cops is positive and respectful, but it doesn't negate the fact that a few bad apples need to be held accountable and culled from the basket.
I don't know why this has to be an all-or-nothing issue for so many people.
I don't think the "all-or-nothing" applies to the majority of us (me and you) but to the media and the police hate groups out there. If the good that police do was reported with the same passion and vigor as the bad apples are, we're not having this conversation. If you ask anyone on the street, the current liberal narrative is "cops are bad". The overall view of the police is bad right now even though the vast majority of what they do is good, and that is what may drive many of the "good ones" out of the business.
