    Worthless opinion piece with an obvious anti-police bias.

    So you should be extra grateful, they're so good at maintaining peace and freedom you've never needed them.

    sounds like they knew this man was not cop material and hired him anyways?

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/ex-officer-aaron-dean-sentenced-220818060.html

    "Kyle Clayton, the psychologist, told jurors that he had concluded that Dean “was not psychologically suitable to serve as a police officer” and that an evaluation suggested that Dean “had a narcissistic personality style” that would inhibit his judgment and "make him more likely to engage in behaviors that could put himself and others at risk.”

    that was from before he was hired

    All Slave Patrollers need to have psycho evaluations annually, if not every six months. The ex-military ones are nuts. Compare today's depictions of cops to old tv shows, like Dragnet and CHiPs and Adam-12. If you want to have some fun, watch a current cop show and count the number of times the idiots violate the constitution.

    I agree, more testing of cops is needed, and on a ongoing basis

    but in this case, they had a report that he had problems and hired him anyways

    if they are gonna ignore the results of the tests, it helps no one and could cost some their lives

    Yes.

    There is clear evidence, such as this, that shows the problem of racism and the tendency toward violence in our police forces goes well above the management level of individual policemen.

    agree, but bad cops can effect all of us, regardless of race, we should all care

    Absolutely.

    We all interact with the police from time to time. We may need help with and emergency. We may exceed the speed limit or whatever, We are ALL affected by their attitudes toward the public and toward the use of lethal force. We've seen the cases where the person calling for help was shot dead by the police.

    Plus, having a significant segment of our population seeing police as a significant and very real threat to life rather than officers who "protect and serve" is a huge impact on everyone.

    I feel for the job of policing. We do not pay them enough or provide adequate training. Plus, we allow civilian *******s to wander our streets everywhere with all manner of firearms.

    I think the war on drug has not helped, it makes cops go on fishing expeditions, and causes young people not to trust cops

    You wouldn't have this big bad persona off this forum if it happened to someone in your family.

    "When prosecutor Dale Smith asked Dean how long it took him to start CPR, Dean at first said, “I don’t recall.” When questioned again he said, “it was a while,” before finally admitting he never started CPR on Jefferson. Smith pointed out that the body-camera video shows Dean did not do anything to help Jefferson for a full minute after entering her bedroom."

    "When Smith asked what kind of a grade Dean would give himself for that first minute and 17 seconds before the shooting, Dean acknowledged he could have done some things better, but said he would give himself a B and later said he thinks “I did a fine job.”

    Poor fella, wouldn't you agree he did a fine job?
