Just like all other abusers, even cops are nice to someone at some point, and use this cherry-pickable data to gain trust and influence.
As a survivor of familial abuse, I'm probably still alive because of cops. But I understand fully that the cops that intervened to protect the nice white girl with two working parents in a middle class part of town from her drug-using known-criminal brother were from the same department that absolutely contributed to that neurodivergent brother breaking and spiraling through the system
My brother was a danger to me because he fell through cracks in the system that were approximately as wide as the egos of my parents who wanted to avoid blame and as high as the salaries of the education and law enforcement professionals entrusted to help him but who were too bigoted and incompetent to do so.
Having grown up lower-middle class and benefiting from cop involvement hasn't stopped me from grasping this.
Nobody gets to use the "Helped by a cop" card. It's as valid as the "I mow lawns for elderly folk, I'm not a bad person!" card.
