to protect and serve; honor; integrity; trust
These are the words I learned growing up in a police family. Being an officer meant you did what was right; at least that’s what I was told.
What has happened to those principles? Reading about a full female body cavity search IN PUBLIC during a traffic stop makes me sick. How degrading would that be if an officer decided your pants should be removed in a parking lot because he smelled marijuana? Police encounters may be embarrassing but they should not be degrading and intimately intrusive.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’d consider that a rape.
