Too many times either the screening wasn't rigorous enough and another psychopath slipped thru or candidate looked good initially but wasn't washed
out fast enough.
Fro Greydaze let me say, being a cop is a sucky, sucky dare I say it SUCKY job. Crappy hours, you gotta pay for your own uniforms and most times at
least here cops are working three part time jobs for multiple municipalities to make their 40 hrs. The paperwork is outrageous and court time keeps
them off the street doing what we need them too be doing. This is AFTER getting their 4 yr college degree in criminology and racking up the student
For every idiot cop out there, there are 10 decent folk in responsible departments getting trashed and painted with the same brush.
I've had my run-ins and despite the media propaganda about bad cops I have yet to meet one. Altho it wasn't like I was holding up a liquor store or
bank or anything. However I was fairly tagged for speeding and those officers couldn't have been more decent about it. They have also responded to a
couple of calls I had to make about a idiot shooting a AK late at night drunk off his butt.
They talked him down and as far as I know didn't even confiscate his weapons. I was more worried for them walking into the woods than I was the idiot
playing rambo. They didn't even blink, just headed off into the darkness and no drama, no choppers, no escalation.
Brave MF-ers they were.
Unless that's a job you'd do maybe stop painting them all with the same brush?
