    Recruiting the next generation of police officers is probably one of the most important functions for human resources professionals and police leaders in any department. Prior to 2009, police agencies across the nation had experienced a dramatic decrease in the number of qualified police applicants (Whetstone, Reed, & Turner, 2006). Chicago Police Department, like others, began lowering their standards for employment to allow younger, less educated officers into their recruitment pool while paying them higher starting salaries

    Police officers are among the most overweight employees in the nation. More overweight than people who work in call centers i.e. people who literally sit and snack all day. For cops to be more overweight than them takes a special kind of lazy.

    Re: cops

    I don't trust any LEO's at all. There are millions of police interactions each day in the US. There are also many interactions that have been video recorded with the people taking the videos being treated like criminals. Why would anyone trust a person who can lie to your face and not be held accountable for said lie? Granted they have dangerous jobs and have to deal with dangerous people but they are the ones who chose their careers. I just feel that they think because they have a badge that they have more rights than we do. FTP.

    That's generally how it works though. If you resist being arrested then you deserve to be beaten for obstructing the police.

    You assume that all police brutality is from resisting arrest. Even if that were true, the precedent that the police is always right and the citizen is always wrong is frightening.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    It's due to either;

    Becoming jaded

    Acquiring a superiority complex

    Only hanging out with other cops who share their sane mentality

    It's interesting that we don't hear about women LEO's being trigger happy, or too aggressive. Wonder why that is!?
