No, no they are not above the law. And this is the problem.
The cops who think they are? They're wrong and the ones I want out of my line of blue so that the rest of my boys in blue can operate better and without so many people breathing down their necks.
It is a fault that people believe the cops should be above the law or not under scrutiny. Out of any organization cops should be the example of the proper citizen. Normal people they may be but immune from scrutiny they are not.
There has become a frightening idea that politicians and cops can operate outside of the law and immune from any backlash. This is wrong. Hell, I myself have come under fire by operating under the insistence that the persons responsible should come under fire, not the entire profession as a whole.
The moment you stop treating the persons responsible as individual from the rest is the moment you cease to look like a sane and rational person to me.
It would be like one of us doing something wrong and then the whole world viewing FSTDT as a horrible, wretched group of individuals.
It just is not fair to view a group like the police force for what a few individuals do. It is a vicious cycle, in fact.
I always cringe when something happens with the police that is negative because I hate that there are people who sully the uniform.
I don't know about you but I'd hate for someone from this site doing something wrong then everyone viewing me like I did something wrong when I didn't.
