re: Instinct

I’m certain there are good & bad police officers, everywhere. The anecdote that I have is from my cousin. He was driving around Los Angeles and took a wrong turn & was shot. He sped to the nearest hospital with a cop car on his tail. The policeman was going to give him a ticket when my cousin pointed out that he was bleeding & summarized his misadventures. Allegedly, the cop replied that he never drove down that road since it was a well known bad neighborhood. My cousin though, but didn’t articulate at the time, that there might be a correlation between a neighborhood being bad & a lack of police presence.
