1 in 3 Atlanta Police Academy Graduates Have Criminal Records!


www.ajc.com

More than one-third of recent Atlanta Police Academy graduates have been arrested or cited for a crime, according to a review of their job applications. The arrests ranged from minor offenses such as shoplifting to violent charges including assault. More than one-third of the officers had been rejected by other law enforcement agencies, and more than half of the recruits admitted using marijuana.

“On its face, it’s troubling and disturbing,” said Vincent Fort, a state senator from Atlanta. “It would be very troubling that people might be hitting the streets to serve and protect and they have histories that have made them unqualified to serve on other departments.”

This has to be one of the most outrageous and crazy stories I've seen in some time.

CONVICTED criminals serving as Police Officers! These folks are out patrolling the streets and "enforcing" the very laws that they themselves have broken!

I just LOVE the excuses the recruiting agent comes up with in the below statement:



“We would like, in an ideal world, to see every applicant with a clean record, but obviously that’s not reality,” said Atlanta police Lt. Elder Dancy, who runs the department’s recruitment unit. “I don’t think you’ll find any departments who hire only applicants with squeaky-clean records.”


That's funny, because I have known quite a few folks with squeaky clean records who were turned down by departments. So in essence, this guy is saying it's A-OK by him to allow a criminal to be a crime-ENFORCEMENT agent. LOL! Sounds like the epitome of irony to me---Do as we say, not as we do...

Again, I am reminded of the "droogies" in Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange". The worst kind of criminal is an offical criminal.

Thuggery sanctioned by law. Just another orwellian moment brought to you by the Corporate States of Amerika.
