Exactly.

Far more likely is that the police higher-ups will fully support everyone and everything that was done, claiming their duty to protect kiddies from drugs overrides their responsibility to not deprive innocent people of liberty and then falsely accuse them of crimes in public.

And the politicians will, likely as not, support them too, because the majority of our 'representatives' are not only in favour of over-zealous displays of 'law and order' but actively work to increase the powers of the agencies and law enforcement while simultaneously reducing any restrictions or oversight and removing what few public protections are left.

No, the line is increasingly that the police are alway right, even when they are wrong.
