Still Think You Can Trust the Police?

The commissioner of the Metropolitan Police wants the police to have more protection from being sued. I'm sure others will discuss this and point out how wrong it is. But what got me was this statement:
"One of the key aspects is that the average settlements are well under £10,000 and most under £5,000, in other words these are not major areas of police misconduct with long-lasting consequences but often technical breaches."
In reality what he's saying is - it's OK for the police to break the law so long as they only commit small crimes.

Anyone still think the police are friends of the public?
