Because the media as a whole tends to thrive on sensationalism, we usually only hear about the bad things police officers do. The truth is that most of them are good people who joined the force to help people, not harm them.
A prime example of a good cop is this officer from the New York Police Department. When he sees a motorcyclist hopelessly stuck in traffic, he decides to go into NYPD boss mode and redirects the gentleman on his motorcycle via a nearby curb in a safe manner.
That’s one guy who definitely won’t assume police officers are out to get him in the future.
