No, you don't. You don't get judge an entire group of people by the behaviour of a few of its members. You have no way of knowing whether your sample size is representative of that group and it's unfair to whatever number of cops are decent people. you can form an opinion about an entire group of p...

The right wing Israel extremists think about Netanyahu as the lesser of two evils (or three in the last election).
