I find this pretty hard to believe, but here it is anyway.


An official at the Massachusetts Civil Service Commission found that the Methuen Police Department admitted that job applicants were given higher scores if they indicated that they would never arrest a fellow officer for drunk driving and other applicants were downgraded for saying that they would apply the law equally to all citizens — officers and non-officers alike.


Methuen Mayor said he plans to review the hiring practice.

Oh my, read more

Actually not surprising. It would be interesting if "public officials" were also included in their bias for "exemptions to the law".

Puts "selective" enforcement and privilege in a new light.

Sounds familiar.

Maybe if I click my Ruby Slippers 5X I will return to reality.

And I might save a couple of Munchkins in the process.

You don't have to be a cop to get special treatment.

Right on with that statement! It also happens in the work place. It's happen at my place of work many of times. Principals and Administrators have been arrested for DUI's and other questionable activities yet keep their jobs. Teachers however, lose their jobs the next day. I'm sure this happens in other professions too!

Hey, every police officer who testified before the commission said it was routine and customary to not call in stops on fellow officers. So this makes that sort of thing ok, doesn't it? I mean, they're good cops, right? And if it's ok with THEM that cops are drunk or violate traffic laws, then it should be okey-dokey with EVERYONE.

I don't in a minute.

I have police relatives. I know what they get away with.
