Every officer, as well as every citizen must be accountable for their actions on their jobs. The police should be no different. However, unfounded accusations must also carry penalties. Define those penalties to protect those falsely accused but allow those who commit egregious actions to be readily held accountable. Easy to say in words, but harder to legislate yet that is what is required. This necessitates national policy, not piecemeal, State by State or watered down legislation!
