When the govt engages is an unpopular war like Vietnam, I understand the flag burning, because the flag represents the govt and you are opposing a govt. sanctioned act- with police I think its a totally different thing, YMMV.
The federal government has gotten involved in local police forces who used too much brutality before

Also the federal government can withhold funds if agencies do not reform their policies regarding behavior and hiring.
