Perfect example today of what I mentioned - Woman Under Police Protection Stabbed To Death In Her Apartment CBS Baltimore

The headline is "Woman under police protection stabbed to death." Average person reading that is going to think the cops dropped the ball. If you read the article you find that the cops told her to move in w/her mom which she did. Then she disregarded their advice and moved back into her apartment which the cops had specifically told her not to do and without notifying them so they had no clue she was there. Then her ex killed her. So the headline should say "Woman stabbed to death after disregarding police protection". Instead it basically blames the cop. So I can't blame them for the us vs them mentality.
