    This kind of bizarre, unsocialized and unlawful behavior makes being a law enforcement officer extremely difficult. These anti-police attitudes prevalent in some cultures will hurt them in the end.

    I agree with Hmmm. People are truly losing their minds. Maybe they should have had those minds renewed. Seems our society is imploding.
