And there we have it. In a nutshell.

No need for any more of your bombastic invective. Your
simplistic cards are on the table. One day you might realise
that cops are just like the rest of us: some good, some bad,
some indifferent, and sometimes all three on the same day. Until
then, I see scant purpose in debating the issue with somebody
who accuses me of being a redneck, marching to the drumbeat of
shadowy handlers while mired in moral judgmentalism - and then
has the temerity to suggest that one should not pass judgment
until in possession of all the facts!
