Local militias led by a democratically elected sheriff are a better alternative.

That sounds like a good way to form a lynching mob. Law enforcement shouldn't be democratic. It should be subject to a great deal of restrictions, but it shouldn't be subject to populist whim by electing the leader.

What a stupid question. Obviously it's more nuanced than that. In addition, whether or not most police are good or bad isn't even relevant, the fact is that there is a significant number of bad police with the power to do great evil and get away with it.

That being said, after reading Huey P. Newton's autobiography (I very much recommend) I have to vote most are bad. Before reading it I would have voted the opposite.

Are Police for the most part good or bad, from my own personal experience, yes they are good.
I Rest My Case. I Rest Our Case. I am worlds greatest insomniac, I have to admit I am Autistic, accounts for repetitive nature. I tried to K Me. I have a government disability for it. I posted on the forum in details, and got locked by the Mods, when reported. We Autistics have our specialties, mine math and Politics. Nobody ever accepts Facts decided by those who strongly disagree with them. You will never accept Facts decided by those who strongly disagree with you. I will never accept Facts decided by those who strongly disagree with me, and these are Facts. I Rest My Case. We Republican Trump Supporters will never take a Knee Against the Flag of The USA, National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance. Respect the good cops that risk their lives every day for all of us, Blue Lives Matter.

If you think they are mostly bad, you are probably black.

Not black, still think that in America they're mostly bad

And don't even get me started on Latin American cops. That's where police brutality's not half as nice

Gotta have a little bit of darkness within you just to survive. You gotta stoop low everyday it seems like. Stoop all the way down to the devil in these times. And then one day you look in the mirror and you realize that you ain't you anymore. You're just another monster, and thanks to your actions, someone else will eventually become as warped and twisted as you. Never forget that the best of us are just the best of a bad lot. Being at the top of a pile of feces doesn't make you anything but shit like the rest. Never forget that.
