I can't believe it's Thursday!
I am going to Peru in two days.... well less than two days kind of.. I am nervous/excited/mixed feelings... should be interesting.
Topic of the Week:
I was having this conversation the other day, thought it would be a good topic for here.
Are power-abusing cops also crooked cops? Is there a difference? Which is worse?
I believe that they are different in some ways. Power-abusing cops are not always crooked ones. For instance, a cop who is an asshole and was picked on in school and only became a cop so that the could have a gun and punish people with giving them tickets for NO reason --just because they could.
A crooked cop I think is different because yeah they might give out tickets but they would steal, lie and cheat to get to the top. They will plant evidence, pretend to be your friend and back stab.
Although power-abusing cops are not the best people in the world and they are out to get you, many of them aren't corrupt.
I feel like that in order to get ahead in the cop system, you have be to corrupt. If you aren't you won't be promoted, you won't get treated like you want to be treated. Have you ever seen the moving Training Day with Ethan Hawke (btw who is SO hot) and Denzel Washington (even hotter) or the movie with Samul L Jackson... where they frame him for the murder of his partner, can't think of the name. But those are great movies that show examples of crooked cops who ALSO abuse their power.
There isn't an extreme difference between the two, but I can say that I believe there are power abusive cops who are not corrupt... yet.
