Why police officers are not friendly anymore (Part 3)

A woman in El Paso, Texas, drowned in her car early Monday morning after it got into a drainage ditch. Several bystanders reportedly tried to save the 64-year-old woman but cops stopped them.

People used to cut cops some slack because they knew that police would be there to help them if they ever got into trouble, even at some risk to the officer's life. You earn some credit when you run towards the sound of gunfire. But you lose that credit when you not only refuse to help people in danger, but prevent others from helping in your place. Ordinary people, not in uniform, who get no special privileges, were willing to help -- and the police threatened to arrest them.

That's not friendly.
