That cop's voice got higher and higher as he knew he was digging himself deeper and deeper. But at no point did those little neurons fire to tell him hey, maybe apologize and quit doubling down.

Apologizing on film means they're openly admitting to violating policies, which forces the hand of their superiors. They're trained to never admit any type of fault, even if it's blatantly obvious.

this is actually 100% true and not just for police, my parents and driving school teacher both told me if I ever got in an accident to never say sorry or admit fault for insurance reasons. similarly at my grocery store that i work at i was told by coworkers never to apologize or admit fault to customers. apologizing is meaningless in the professional adult world apparently

Seems like a good bedrock for a functional society.

Yeah I hate that shit. It takes a mature person to apologize and we are teaching people to be assholes who never admit fault. I apologize all the time to my customers and I never have had an issue. People love the ol “I apologize for the inconvenience.” and it can defuse so many tense situations.

These people would rather fight with a Karen then defuse a situation with a simple apology all because their egos won’t let them admit fault for some reason.

The insurance thing is understandable but if it’s your fault then you should apologize. What are you going to do? Lie to your insurance company because you don’t want to admit fault? That’s why everyone has a dashcam now.

I’m convinced the two basic trains of thought for all human kind are this, either the cannot admit fault or sees no issue admitting fault. It’s scary when you see how deep it goes.
