    Unless the shoe is hastily cast.

    A low credit score does not necessarily indicate someone is irresponsible or shirks financial responsibility

    If it sounds ridiculous flipped around then chances are good it's pretty ridiculous no matter what angle you come at it.

    Credit ratings are NOT to be confused with the morality system of a Bioware game
    You don't have to take personal financial risks in order to be a police officer. Its not a good comparison your trying to use.

    However, one can use their position as an officer to fix their personal financial problems.

    It is a very good indicator.

    Should banks or mortgage companies not be able to check credit before loaning money? I would never want to hire someone that was not worthy of a loan.

    So let me get this straight....

    The public both wants cities employing police officers to do thorough background checks and make damn certain that they do not hire someone into a position of authority that will abuse said position or act irresponsibly...
    But...
    At the same time, we can't discriminate against someone who has a very bad financial record as an indicator that said person might be more inclined to abuse their power for their own financial gain.

    I don't get "the public" I seriously don't......

    First I just got to say TOJ WAY TO GO. You seem like the kind of guy that loves ****ting on people. I can relate.

    Anyways, they should just make this an national law.

    National Law? Centrist? I think not.

    We need less government not more.

    States aren't going to matter anymore if people keep thinking like you do.

    Banning the original thread starter...that's pretty brutal.
