Should police officers be held to a higher standard?
Regarding in what context?
They would be held even more accountable for their actions and face harsher punishments for breaking the law. And if they are fired from their position, they will lose the right to ever become cops. (Many times cops have been fired and rehired at another department, only to commit another crime)
Agreed. However, when bad sh*t goes down between a cop and civilian, we shouldn't jump to the conclusion that the cop was racist/brutal/whatever. You agree?
