Tom, you were making some good points … until you got to the end and gave us an assertion of questionable hyperbole.
“They [police] are indeed the most dangerous gang in the area.”
Are you seriously claiming that the police forces of … (what “area” did you have in mind?) … are more “dangerous” than, for example, Mafia Mexicana, Crips, Los Aztecas, the Aryan Brotherhood, or Los Sureños (each with a multitude of subgroups)?
Is that just uninformed opinion or are you able to substantiate that claim? I would be interested in seeing what information informed your conclusion.
