    Because as with any random sampling of people in any profession or walk of life, etc, there are always a handful that aren't capable of performing their job in a professional way.

    Some will be under trained, some won't be bright enough, some will just crack under the pressure, some will be just plain evil.

    The bad cops just get a lot of attention because often they are video taped due to the circumstances of their job. Also being a bad cop often means that you are physically harming people or misusing your authority.

    *Edit to say that the nature of the job probably brings out more violence from cops than if they were say a fireman or something. Most of these "bad cops" probably are decent enough guys most of the time, but for some reason cannot control themselves in certain situations.
