The police should be there to serve and protect. The same goes for security forces and the judiciary that are there to service their people. It is very difficult to investigate those that do the opposite: that become perpetrators. Members of the law enforcement that end up breaking their political contract and abuse their power for personal or departemental gain. These investigative journalists look at serious abuse, murder and cover-ups by the police and security forces. They do this work with great risks since the ones they are exposing have so much institutionalized power.
