It’s part of the worship cops mentality that we’ve seen since 9/11.

It’s been going on longer than 9/11. The idea of the “hero cop” is at least as old as Prohibition, but really took off after WWII with the number of ex-GIs who went into law enforcement. There was the ebb in that during the Civil Rights Era, but the rise of the “cowboy cop” genre as well as the series of serial killings that plagued the era saw cops again being viewed as the “thin blue line” protecting law-abiding folks from total anarchy.
