IamBored29: Because of their responsibilities to the public police need to be doing their jobs 'cleaner` than the average public. It`s shady crap like you described that fosters disrespect for the police and puts their fellow officers in danger.
But actually I believe you are stating rumor rather than actual fact. Bribing a police officer is a felony and would`ve amounted to more than just `desk time` if that person had been caught. Trying to use the `corrupt police` claim to argue against any one law fails miserably because it would mean that having any law at all would be useless. A smart cop, Corrupt or otherwise, Wouldn`t do something that could be easily proven like racism, bigotry, or filing a false report.

"What concerns me is, If you knew of 'shady practices` being done by officers you knew, Then why didn`t you help in cleaning it up.
Unless of course you are making suppositions that are not based on first hand evidence. Which means that you were also using suppositions in your earlier comment. Just because a cop has the ability to do `shady` things doesn`t mean they will. Also, If they do, They will eventually get caught. Rotten cops don`t last."
These shady practices are SOP in most depts. in the country and probably the world. Watching an officer drop off a case of wild turkey for extra overtime, if i had gone to IA or a superior it would`ve ended up a "he said-she said"...as most instances of "shady" practices. Ever file a complaint at a dept? They take it and "lose it"...as with most evidence against the dept itself. Your obvious contempt for me, police officers or both, in your tone is noted. ;)
