It's cynicism like this ^^^ that is keeping us divided and discouraging more and more of your population from participating in the political process. Most of the LEO's that I know are good people who genuinely want to serve and protect their communities. I might disagree with some of them on some social issues or have some philosophical disagreements, but that doesn't make them scumbags like this poster seems to be suggesting.
Yes, there are bad eggs, and unfortunately some of them are in administrative positions which gives them power to set policies for their departments and often wind up recruiting likeminded people, like we had in Ferguson where there was (at least according to the Justice System's report/findings) a pattern of abuse of power and civil rights violations. That doesn't make the whole system broken though and should not be used as justification to hate all LEO's or not mourn the loss of good cops who are killed in the line of duty like the Omaha officer. Stories like hers break my heart to read (especially having a young child of my own) and just imagining the pain and sadness that her daughter and husband will forever feel at her loss and the fact that her daughter will never know or remember her literally causes my eyes to well up with tears.
What the hell is wrong with people in the World today that they seem to have lost all empathy or compassion for their fellow human beings?! I don't care what color their skin is, what religion they practice (well, assuming they aren't killing, maiming, or torturing people in the name of that religion), or what country they call home (again, assuming they aren't killing, maiming, or torturing people unjustly in the name of that country); the lack of compassion for our fellow human beings and the amount of hatred, greed, and selfishness in this world is poisoning us as a species. There are still plenty of people fighting the good fight though and ther are still those doing their best to spread love, compassion, tolerance, hope, and peace to the World. So the fight is not lost yet. To those who can count yourselves amount that crowd (including Military personnel and LEO's like Idaho and Mapwhap) I salute you and count you as allies.
Rant over. steps down off soap box
