You almost never see the good cops speaking out against the bad ones, though. And even when they do, the get heat from the other cops. I read a story (can't find it anymore) that a cop made a sign calling out the terrible things police do, and the Pittsburgh police (iirc) were furious with him.The police thing I'll admit is a little overdone. People are taking it out on all police, and not just the bad ones.
Too many people think criticizing the police is the same as attacking them and degrading them. Not that a lot of the police aren't attacking and degrading (and killing) people themselves, but a lot of people especially major news outlets don't know the difference between criticism and insults and aren't willing to admit that there's a problem just because the problem doesn't affect them. That needs to stop.
EDIT: I found the picture of the cop who held the sign that made the Pittsburgh police furious:
