I am a law abiding citizen and respect law enforcement and the job they have,but I am becoming alarmed at the number of instances of abuses of power by law enforcement.For every instance like this that is given some news coverage,I am sure there are many more that we never hear about.Police are there to enforce the law and having a badge doesn't give them the right to ignore our constitution or laws.One unscrupulous officer can make your life a living hell,even if you fight it and eventually clear your name,and not everyone has the means to do this.I would like to see more Police officers(who know and follow the laws & constitution) take charge and police their own.Another factor to consider is how much money and resources are wasted.
