Here in San Diego there has been a recent run of criminal cops. I'm not talking minor corruption or DUIs here, but truly serious crimes: One was arrested yesterday on rape, assault, kidnapping and other felony charges. On Tuesday, Chief William Lansdowne and his top command staff held a news conference to address what he called an "unprecedented number" of accusations of impropriety or criminal behavior on the part of SDPD personnel over the last three months - 10 cases total, six of which have resulted in arrests of officers. Why should I adhere to any laws when the cops themselves don't? How can I trust an authority which abuses its power so much? Why isn't there more national outrage about this situation?
