Police profess to car about upholding the law. If they really cared so much, they would be especially outraged when a fellow police person breaks the law.http://truth-out.org/news/item/13510-in-significant-precedent-federal-jury-finds-city-of-chicago-responsible-for-code-of-silence-in-chicago-police-department

On February 17, 2007, an intoxicated off-duty Chicago police officer, Anthony "Tony" Abbate walked behind the bar of Jesse's Shortstop Inn and pummeled, punched and stomped 125-pound bartender Karolina Obrycka. Her "crime" was to refuse serving any more liquor to the burly Abbate because he was too drunk.
That unprovoked beating by Abbate led to a precedent-setting finding this November by a federal court jury in Chicago that the city, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and Tony Abbate had engaged in a "code of silence" to try and minimize the incident, protect Abbate and prevent justice from being served to Obrycka.
