The role of police is to distribute violence on behalf of the political class, which is the only clientele they have to please. When a police department is informed of officer misconduct, the institutional priority is to discredit the aggrieved “customers,” rather than to listen to their complaints. Unlike an employee in the productive sector, a police officer who provokes public criticism is likelier to be promoted rather than terminated.
