I didn't think that former felons could become cops. That opens the door to corruption, IMO. I understand that people change and shouldn't keep getting convicted all their lives for a crime that they committed when they were young....but cops shouldn't let criminals in, former or current. That's just common sense. Oh, I forgot! Common sense rarely gets used these days by people in power.
