No one is above the law
The Bad Councilwoman
Policed in a smaller town (20,000 pop) for 8 years. I was a military transplant, didn’t know anyone locally when I was hired. Lots of good old boys and friends of friends that could get away with almost anything.
Had a city councilwoman who believed no parking signs on her street didn’t pertain to her. One particular shift about 2AM, out of sheer frustration I guess, I found her truck parked in the street and decided to wake her and politely ask her to move it (thank god for body cameras.)
Next morning at 9 AM I was awoken by a phone call from my “superior” that a formal complaint had been filed for vulgar language and intimidation by said councilwoman. Again, thank god for body cameras. (Jolou85)
My uncle arrested another cop for harassing an old lady in Philly. The guy was having a bad day or something and tried to take it out on an 80-year-old woman who took a shopping cart and put it back in the wrong store. Her being 80 pretty much told him to f–k off and began walking away, he pursued her cursing at her and she hobbled to a manager who called the police.
The manager took the old lady behind the customer service window and the cop just kept banging on the glass screaming at her and saying he’s a cop. Uncle came, tried to walk the guy away only to get punched in the face, Uncle being a 6 foot 2 huge man had the guy on the ground in a few seconds and cuffed in his car a few more.
The crazy cop was a newbie and was fired by his precinct after a 4 week paid vacation once the old lady threatened to sue. Uncle got a talking to about how he should have handled it differently and descalated it better as the guy was a cop. He was going to be put on desk work until he got someone from the union involved.

One For All, All For One
My father is a cop, he once pulled over his superior for drunk driving. His boss expected special treatment. My dad arrested him. He ended up leaving the department because he was warned, “If you dont have our backs, then don’t expect us to have yours”
edit: to clear it up, ot was my dad who left the department (drumshadowrun)
