Former Police Officer Talks about the Dark Side of the Job

We hear a lot these days about good and bad police officers. From deadly encounters with unarmed black men… to selfless acts of kinds for strangers.  But these stories are often told from the outside, from news outlets or even short interviews with officers who are often reserved in their descriptions of what they are willing or allowed to share.  What is the real, unvarnished, transparent story of modern policing?  How do they view race, brutality, corruption as well as the serve and protect… pledge of the job?  An insider tells his story.
