I'm a strong believer in "absolute power corrupts absolutely" and therefore powerful organizations like the police need to have oversight organizations to serve as a check and balance to their power. That means every police force must have an independent and well supported "Internal Affairs" department.

I could be wrong. ;-)

It's a well known fact that good cops hate the bad cops. However, bad cops rule through intimidation and threats. What they do on the streets, they'll do in the station house but the violence they play with in that space is social, not physical. Different type of power playing.

Change comes when the good turns on the bad.

Where are the Serpico's of this generation?
