If you watch cops enough you start to notice they have certain patterns in their behavior. This is from the same standardized training that everyone gets across the nation. But there is some discretion amongst individuals that can also be seen. Some may not be so hardcore in their practice of the laws.
It only takes one hardcore cop to make you expect them all to be hardcore. The more radical disciplines are the most noticeable. You will remember the most radical attacks by cops. They will threaten to toss you in jail and place their charges on you. Then it’s up to the prosecutor to support the cops petition.
When there is an unusually nice cop, you have to ask if there is something wrong with them.
