Law Enforcement officers are held to a higher standard of character and moral judgment and they should live up to it or get another job. When they fall short of those standards they should be fired and prosecuted, not suspended or given probation. Goals Towards a Better Police Accountability System We need to restore police accountability, build public trust in law enforcement and promote public safety in communities throughout the U.S. When a police officer breaks the law the majority of the time they get off easy, usually just getting a small slap on the wrist for such crimes as DWI, child porn, stalking, sexual harassment and spousal abuse, etc. Since Law Enforcement has so much more power over citizens such as yourself, it's only fair to "balance the tables" and deal harshly with police misconduct. No one should be above the law!
