"Customer Service" from the South Florida police...

Recently, a police watchdog group investigated the process of filing a complaint against a police officer in a number of police departments in Florida.  The results were shocking.  Only very few actually had formal complaint forms, which isn't in itself a major problem -- it's possible to take complaints without a paper form.  The question is whether it's possible to do so fairly, as a number of extremely unprofessional police officers demonstrated while caught on a hidden camera.   Some of the officers pictured threatened the members of the group with traffic tickets, or demanded id while calling the behavior "suspicious", and one irate officer followed the attempted complainer out into the street and put his hand on his gun. 

Are these people we want to have a monopoly on lethal force?
