In reply to: In the absence of proof to the contrary posted by tf86
In my case, it applies to police across the board. Of course, the standard of proof is supposed to be proof of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, even if that doesn't always happen in the real world.
Not looking to debate, just don’t want to assume.
I would look for corroboration before I'd be inclined to believe anything a police officer says.
And just so that we're clear, I did not say I would not believe anything a police officer said, ever. But I would require corroboration first.
