    I mean I think it was just done for affect, but you might say that it was just bad policing too, sure you must get some hot heads on the force. If the Cops were being controlled by the Mayor there is always that chance that they would try anything to get Buffy out the way too.

    Well if the police that we saw in Season 7, the ones who tried to beat Faith up, were an example of Sunnydale Police behavior, bad conduct didn't end when Wilkins blew up.

    What happened in that scene? I can't remember. Of course it is about context and sometimes they will simply do something because it makes for good TV rather than it being logical.

    Faith had taken the Potentials to the Bronze for some break time. Several police officers arrested Faith, then took her outside and proceeded to beat the crap out of her while one stayed inside and held the Potentials covered with a shotgun.

    (poor cops had no idea just how dangerous a Slayer can be if you get on her last nerve. Faith 4, Cops 0)

    Sunnydale cops = deeply stupid.
    And also trigger happy apparently.

    Although I though their actions in S7 was them being harmfully influenced by the Hellmouth, not that they usually go around beating up/shooting (or trying to) ex-cons.
    Otherwise they more than had what happened to them coming.

    Absolutely! It happens rather frequently here in Los Angeles; especially if the person running is black or latino.
    Several times the police actually lied about these situations...they claimed the person tried to take their gun. In fact, that lie seems to be quite popular with renegade law enforcement.
