You want to know why guys become cops? Ask their wives. Most of the time they're control freaks, and end up as brutes to their families. They're gunslingers. They like to intimidate people, and feel justified in exercising their authority. What's worse, the city fathers recognize them as a necessary evil, and only mildly discourage their brutish behavior. Get over it, because it isn't going away. Stay in your home and out of bars, obey the traffic laws, and you probably won't ever have a run in with one of them.
