When I was growing up I was told that Police Officers were always the people you called. They were there to protect and serve. I was raised under not just a "white privilege" but privileged within that bracket as well so I believed it, until my family was out of office and my legal name was no longer that of my family's. I found out quickly that there seemed to be more corrupt officers than 'good' cops and all of those cops knew of what the 'bad' were doing which doesn't make them good people at all.
