The problem is that being a cop is one of the better jobs that a poorly educated person can get, especially if they have self-control issues. Compared to the alternatives for that specific demographic, the pay is good, the physical demands are low, and you have a lot of daily autonomy.

It is no surprise that cops will be eager to please their bosses, to the detriment of their "customers". By their reasoning, it is far better to oppress the poor and be absolved of responsibility than to join them. The Milgram Obedience and Stanford Prison Experiments practically provide a blueprint for how to make your employees switch off their own ethics while on the job.
