What does the officer tell his family when he returns home that night? Does he tell them he did good work, because he’s safe while his victim lies on a gurney in the coroner’s office?
In this respect, police officers are like priests who rape children. The church protected its own. Bishops made sure priests who preyed on children were transferred away from parishes where they committed their crimes, so rapists could prey on unknowing victims somewhere else. Similarly, police officers who rape women in their custody find a way to continue their so-called police work, where they can find other victims of their coercion.
