Policemen: Protectors of Peace or Abusers of Power?

In the political world, policemen are always revered as the saviors of society, the men and women who put their life on the line daily. But there is a whole other view to these people too. Seen as abusers of power, hundreds and thousands of people put up videos on Youtube of terrible crimes committed, men and women who use the badge as an excuse to break the law and abuse those who are law-abiding citizens. In my experience cops have always been more or less respectful and do not overstep their boundaries, and merely uphold their responsibilities to the community.

However, that's not to say that there are some out there that abuse the power. I've seen plenty of cops speeding down the highways, almost recklessly so, without their lights or sirens on. Something doesn't seem right there. I've been pulled over before and had a cop be incredibly rude and almost yell at me, despite me being completely respectful. I understand people sometimes have bad days, but that's no reason to take it out on the citizens you are sworn to serve and protect.

So what are your opinions and experiences? As much as it sucks getting stopped by the cops, it's usually for a legitimate reason. And while there are a great many straight shooters out there, it sort of seems that a great deal of them have picked up a reputation for bending the rules as need be.
