How about someone make a movie out of your life and only put on the parts when you snapped and mess up? That's what we see with the cops. What if he had saved hundreds of people's lives before? Would that change anything?
Cops spend the majority of their time in the office, and their jobs are less dangerous than those in mining, construction, agriculture, etc. They shouldn't get a free pass. They know what they're signing up for.
