Reader: Thank Goodness We Live In a Place Where Cops Are Held to Lawful Standards
When we shared a post about the arrest of police officer Mark Beluscak, who's at least the eighth Denver cop to get in trouble during 2014, we asked folks on Facebook why they thought this kind of thing keeps happening. A wide variety of responses followed, with this one viewing the busts form a positive perspective.

Because police officers are human beings apt to human failings. Thankfully we live in a place where our police officers are being expected to uphold the law, where they also face consequences for unlawful action. How awesome is it that our police officers are consistently held to lawful standards and not allowed to blue each other out of trouble?
