Lots of good cops out there no doubt, even in Philly.
There is "officially sanctioned" behavior by organizations, then there is behavior that is unofficially allowed to persist by turning a blind eye to it.
Philadelphia PD has a long history of turning a blind eye to the racist behavior of their officers. The last thing they want is video evidence of that behavior, forcing them to confront it. Note: The PPD is currently being sued for wrongful arrest of civilians that attempt to record their officer's behavior in public.
Like I said, it's possible that PPD is that way. If so, then that needs to change. Not the way we do it around here though. We are actually encouraged to have video on ourselves, knowing that everything we do that's on our cameras is available to discoverable to the defense and/or a available to the public through FOIA
