    I disagree. Steroids are mood-altering, and would interfere with the calm/rational judgement required of street level officers. Faster is not always better.

    not really true, just on Inside sports the other day studys show the mood-altering part is false, it has been found to ENHANCE ones already personality traits and even then its a low percentage like that of any drug like caffine

    meaning if you are a jerk you are a bigger jerk, but if your not it doent make you one

    Re: Cops' Use of Illegal Steroids a 'Big Problem'

    A 2008 study on a nationally representative sample of young adult males in the United States found an association between lifetime and past-year self-reported anabolic-androgenic steroid use and involvement in violent acts. Compared with individuals who did not use steroids, young adult males who used anabolic-androgenic steroids reported greater involvement in violent behaviors even after controlling for the effects of key demographic variables, previous violent behavior, and polydrug use.[68] A 1996 review examining the blind studies available at that time also found that these had demonstrated a link between aggression and steroid use, but pointed out that with estimates of over one million past or current steroid users in the United States at that time, an extremely small percentage of those using steroids appear to have experienced mental disturbance severe enough to result in clinical treatments or medical case reports.[69]

    A trial conducted in 2000 using testosterone cypionate at 600 mg/week found that treatment significantly increased manic scores on the YMRS, and aggressive responses on several scales. The drug response was highly variable, however: 84% of subjects exhibited minimal psychiatric effects, 12% became mildly hypomanic, and 4% (2 subjects) became markedly hypomanic. The mechanism of these variable reactions could not be explained by demographic, psychological, laboratory, or physiological measures.[71]

    A 2006 study of two pairs of identical twins, in which one twin used anabolic steroids and the other did not, found that in both cases the steroid-using twin exhibited high levels of aggressiveness, hostility, anxiety and paranoid ideation not found in the "control" twin.[72] A small scale study of 10 AAS users found that cluster B personality disorders were confounding factors for aggression.[73]

    Like I said their study proved otherwise so lol

    if I have the time Ill find out what their study was, it was Inside Sports on HBO if you find it important enough to look yourself and not wait for me but I have also known various people on roids etc with my involvement in sports and fitness (ONLY about 10 people) and none of them except for one was a jerk or wanted to fight all the time BUT he was like that before, during and after the roids, he has little man complex

    I actually have never used drugs. And have never been arrested. So you are wrong and you are the ONE throwing out false accusations.

    Actually you failed. If I would have made a generalization it would have said, "ALL cops or ALL people, etc, etc."

    wrong again bucko

    Generalization: a proposition asserting something to be true either of all members of a certain class or of an indefinite part of that class.
    most is an indefinite part of the class of cops.

    If they were smart, they'd be on CNN versus ESPN.
