This is why the world is so screwed up at the moment.
Complete idiots like these two are employed into positions that actually have power and authority over the governing of the law. Does it look like
these two fools are ever going to question the nefarious and outright corrupt behavior of their superiors or colleagues? No! God it's like the
immaturity of highschool all over again... Except these people are in positions of power which could potentially ruin your life! There is no way they
deserve to be working as law enforcement, their mindsets and attitudes are all wrong.
Furthermore when you extrapolate this sort of behavior to many other fields, especially politics, you can understand why the world is full of such
corruption and outright stupidity - because it's being ran by fools! (Probably fools purposely employed by a select few cleverer people in positions
of power, so as to keep the world stupid and corrupt).
Sorry for the rant, but I've just come off of a long day arguing against SAT structure.
Since the situation is slightly relevant I'll explain - as an example of how stupid the world/ system is .
In a nutshell examinations like the SAT typically require students ethnic and gender information at the beginning
of the examination. Asking
for this information, however, activates Stereotype Threat, in which individuals become aware of stereotypes related to their gender/ ethnicity etc.
being bad at maths/ writing/ being dumb/ scoring lowly etc.
Because of the activation of this stereotype, individuals then become anxious, and commit cognitive resources, which reduce memory load, to ensuring
they don't confirm this stereotype. Unfortunately, however, this has a rebound effect - by taking up cognitive resources and contributing to cognitive
load, this anxiety about performing poorly actually makes the individual perform poorly!
Now this is a well known social psychological phenomenon and has an tremendously easy solution: Simply collect students information at the end of the
examination when the stereotype activation cannot effect the students performance!
Despite this phenomenon being massively documented, accepted by everyone in the field, and easily solved. No one is willing to do anything about
It's this inaction and apathy that allows all of these cases of crooked cops to go unpunished and the system to continue to spiral
