Just a few more bad apples who don't in any way reflect their peers.

The answer, I'm sure, wouldn't surprise you.

I'd want to go even further and make cops like doctors: make them each buy malpractice insurance, but with rates attached to the conduct of the entire department. One of those oh-so-rare bad apples getting caught raises everyone's rates. Wouldn't that inspire all those good ones to demand better behaviour if it improves their personal bottom line? I'd think that conservatives would back that kind of market-rooted policy where cops seek to improve each other's behaviour not by an appeal to conscience or ethics, but material self-interest.

"Defensive tactics"—y'know, being in riot gear and beating the fuck out of a defenseless person. The caption is also real. (This is from a court case.)
