There are no good cops. All police exist to enforce the dictates of the regime. Some will say “not all cops are bad” when they hear of cops commiting their crimes against humanity. The very choice to join the police force and get paid to terrorize people is unethical. The police do not exist to keep people safe. They attempt to claim because they will enact revenge upon people after they have done a specific action they deem unacceptable. They exist primarily to keep the order of a neoliberal capitalist state. Yes All Cops Are Bad!
Police are more likely to go after people who break outside of social norms that challenge the hierarchy of a capitalist order. In Ferguson the damage of a capitalists’ property was taken more seriously than the taking of an innocent life. Stanley Milgram proved with his study that people will blame victims when an authority figure targets and harms an innocent person. This is seen on a grand scale when it comes to reporting on police. Officers seem to swiftly fall into this.
The institution of policing grew out of the desire to defend property of the ruling classes. This is seen in the slave catchers as an institution for tracking down and keeping people as property. This is also seen in the Industrial revolution as striking workers challenged the tyranny of the capitalists they were subject to. Police often physically assaulted and killed strikers and workers. The foundation of the very institution of policing is one that is intended to keep the people under the control of the working class.
Your friend, cousin or sibling who joined the police force may be a nice person to you. This person is also paid to commit extortion, physically assault people and to kidnap and cage them. The police is an immoral institution. They commit acts of violence on a daily basis that is somehow suddenly embraced and reframed to be acts of heroism. If any person not in a little blue suit would commit such acts they would be feared and instantly labeled a criminal. Remember as you drive down the street and see that pig in your rear view mirror that they are against you. They are class traitors and the iron hand of the ruling class and nothing more.
Occasionally police like to play good guy. They will do photo ops, acts of charity and try to get in the media for human interest pieces. They will go into schools to try and indoctrinate children. Individual officers may have even internalized the belief that their upholding the order of the ruling elite is for the public good. Remember, at the end of the day they keep you in submission to the powers that exploit you. No police officer is good.
