After discussion I wanted to amend this with a 9th point:
9) As it stands right now the DA office generally is on the same team as the cops. This means they rely on cops to collect evidence for them and have an incentive to keep a good working relationship with them. This also means there is a conflict of interest when it comes to the DA persecuting cops and thus they often do not. Part of the solution has to come from creating a new division completely independent of the DA, the DA continues as is when persecuting civilian crimes. The other division of State Attorneys would be entierly devoted to persecuting the police when they behave criminally. This division into two independent departments eliminates the conflict of interest the DA currently has and will allow more aggressive persecution of cops by the state.
@zleap I'm not entierly sure the UK is a good system to model to be honest. I have often posted tons of police abuse of entierly different nature before. I cant say im happy with how they handle things.
I'd be much more likely to look to nations like the Netherlands as a better example personally.
