Right wing isn't a pejorative no matter how much you want it to be. If you don't want to be dismissed out of hand then you need to be more mature and realize that there are opinions other than yours out there, insulting them just polarizes things even more.

To the topic itself I don't necessarily with some of the things you said but this is wrong:

And why do people need to call the cops to begin with? They're not allowed to defend themselves.

Yes you are allowed to defend yourself, don't be absurd. The reality is that most people do not want to defend themselves, that's why we live in a society where people assume defined roles and share communities. Police are absolutely desired by the general populace, its just an easy target for people to grumble about. Have you ever worked a job where you are never praised or recognized except for extraordinary events but your mistakes are heavily scrutinized? One that combines life and death situations with judgment calls that go above and beyond what most people have to make in their entire life? Decisions that have to be made in a split second while you fear for your life or the lives of others?

Maybe have an iota of empathy for policemen. There are bad cops out there but you take the good with the bad like everything else in society. Expecting cops to be perfect is ridiculous and for the most part I thinks cops are held accountable for their actions. The media doesn't like to focus on the routine layoff and firing of police for various reasons including disciplinary actions unless it accompanies a big social issue, its not a sexy story.
