I find that rarely are people pure evil, and that many people with
negative jobs do positive things to mitigate their karma. Bear is a
great example of this. He and his unit take donations of fluffy
critters, school supplies, stickers, and candy and gives them out to the
kids in the towns the go through.
Just don't shoot at them as they *will* shoot back. Whether 'police
actions' in foreign countries are evil or not is not under discussion
here, just like Vagan they are doing a job for their government.
