Problem is, it only takes one to royally screw things up for a lot of people. All too often, the rest close ranks and protect that one when they should be hanging him out to dry. IMO, that makes them at least partly culpable for anything that one does.
I'll stick with my original statement, most people are good and most Cops know they want to be left alone. I'll not argue with your culpability opinions as there is no excuse for poor ethics.
