It doesnt matter if its low compared to other countries. Its abysmal from a human perspective, especially from people supposed to protect you.

If teachers or doctors had those numbers we would sharpen pitchforks and light torches.

The bottom 2.8% percent of anything is usually pretty bad, including teachers and doctors...

Police work attracts many unsavory individuals who are drawn to the power, violence, and immunity from consequences that the job offers. Good police force tries to weed out these people, bad embraces them....

Feel free to provide statistics of your claim that 2.8% of teachers and doctors are also "pretty bad". I would also catagorize systemic rape and rapist protection systemically (again according to the MET themselves) is a bit worse than "pretty bad". If the army did it it wouldve been a warcrime.
