I wouldn't exactly call that a credible source.

Did you see the video linked on that page?

So when this black cop testifies before the grand jury do you think they'll treat him the same as Wilson? Will they consider the black cop's story, and everyone who collaborates as "reliable", and everyone else's bullshit? Can he say the white dude possessed subhuman strength, looked possessed and he got stronger the more slugs he pumped into him and be taken seriously? Can the media talk about the white dude's thuggery? Will the black community raise a shitload more money to defend the Brother like the white folk did for Wilson? I hope they do cover it.

Becoming a cop has a whole shit ton of hurdles to jump over. You are given a written exam, a physical agility test, panel interviews, a thorough background check, a psych eval, and a polygraph test. The screening process is designed to limit the number of jerkoffs who get onto the force, and it does a pretty good job.

The problem is in the police departments themselves. There is a bully culture that is very prevalent, and very behavior modifying on people who spend any amount of time in that culture. I had a friend who became a sheriff's deputy, and after about 6 months to a year, he went from being a very nice, empathetic guy to a guy who laughed as he told stories about humiliating inmates (sheriff's work the jail for awhile before going out on patrol). The man they hired was a good guy, but police culture turned him into a problem.

Even in the civilian police academy I attended, you saw the change in people. The jokes about administering attitude adjustments, the tendency to de-humanize people and their behavior, etc. found it's way in. To fix the problem we have with bad cops, we have to change, fundamentally, the culture of policing that we have in this country.

This is hilarious.

Its been thoroughly proven that if you score too high you wont be hired because you'll "get bored", so they actively discourage intelligence.

As far as it doing "a pretty good job" of keeping jerkoffs off the force, have you even read the news at all in the past 20 years? Because its pretty much nothing but jerkoffs who have instances of humanity.

The biggest "Gang" in Canada is the RCMP. Six of the heroes gunned down an old Chinese guy with a 2x4 in his hands last week.

I honestly thought it was going to be a little harder to prove, but nope right there the first damn link on google has a court upheld ruling that they literally discourage intelligence on police forces.

Why would you want a job where everyone knows you're there because your not very bright?

Read "get bored" as "think independently" and it makes a lot more sense.

Nope. The page makes my ancient laptop freak the fuck out.

It's just something people were passing around facebook. I read the title just after reading Geeno's post and shared.

"think independently" = dont think

They prefer people who are only smart enough to notice someone is 'breaking' the law, whether 6 or 60. Dont be making decisions out on the street, "enforce" the law.

Same as the 'TSA' retards, ie 88 yr old grandmas = cavity search.

They bring in Nat. Guard troops & police from elsewhere for 'riot control', its a lot easier to shoot a 'lawbreaker' they dont know as opposed to 'Oh thats so-and-so, I went to school with his dad, prolly shouldnt shoot him'
