And vice versa (Republican cop giving a Dem the business). It's not a good thing. If they want to be one way or the other on their own time that is fine. While on duty, be a cop, not a politician. The badge doesn't belong to Republicans or Democrats. To protect and serve means to protect and serve the people, not a political view or agenda.
Just about every oath taken at every level of law enforcement and military service starts first and foremost with defending the Constitution of the United States. It's their sworn duty to protect it, even against corrupt political usurpation.
