Having said that, we still do live in the USA where the law says that we are innocent until proven guilty, and the view that a lot of citizens have is that which you are talking about-an assumption of dishonesty before proof is presented. It leaves some people w/a bad taste in their mouths and a lot of times obvious disdain for law enforcement. I will say, again that's not my opinion.
Anyway, my prayers are with you as you make the rounds, to help keep this country safe from evildoers. God bless you my friend.
