bent cop

bent cop

A police officer who is corrupt, takes bribes, or abuses the privileges and powers of their position. The gangs are a problem, but it's the bent cops you really have to watch out for. I know a bent cop working down at the station. If we slip him a few hundred dollars, this charge might go away.
