      It was also bad play because of peace officer spirit..

      Calling QJs from OOP isn't good even against loose?
      How should I have done after flop?

      Preflop can be a 3bet but calling is also fine.

      As played, flop is standard/ok, turn is a close call but river is just a clear fold. He knows you won't fold Ax so he won't bluff there (your hand looks like Ax or good Qx) meaning he is value betting 90% of the time.
