From the redlit thread:

See, the article started like this:

A Port Canaveral police sergeant was fired Friday after an internal investigation showed he offered other officers a target resembling Trayvon Martin to use for shooting practice.

And I thought maybe it was just a bad generic target.  Then this:

The Trayvon target, which features a bull's eye over his heart, a package of Skittles in his pocket and a beverage can in his right hand, is sold online.

Well, that's about what I'd expect from a cop. http://abcnews.go.com/US/court-oks-barring-high-iqs-cops/story?id=9583 6#.UWo7r7WThcw" target="_blank" style="color: rgb(61, 61, 255); text-decoration: none; -webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgb(255, 94, 153); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 17px;">We don't hire the best of the best.  We hire the best of the worst.

That's definitely a firing. Right there.

Where do they find these idiots and why do they hire them?

While I am sure that many police officers are nice people, generally speaking, most of the ones in the uniform are not what I would describe as "bright."

It's got nothing to do with his being a cop. It's just that his being a cop means his asshole proclivities are better defended than most.

Ok. I'll bite. It was a joke - he didn't fabricate the thing, he bought it somewhere. He thought nothing of it, and that many people were doing it, so he saw no harm. It cost him about five minutes of trouble and he thought he was going to have a laugh for a few seconds out of his colleagues. Nothing that would ever make it to the public at large. Stupid? Definitely. Worthy of firing? Hardly.

They didn't allow him to retire with benefits like the Florida cop who said all blacks should be drowned at birth to prevent Trayvon-like incidents from occurring? Sad. More proof that Obama hates white people. I like how being an accidental racist is all of a sudden worthy of a firing yet Tiger Woods only gets a 2 stroke penalty for cheating on a white woman. Double standards. Black people have all the luck.

"Dumbass" is not a quality that is particularly desirable in a police officer.
 
2013-04-14 04:17:22 AM
I bet his parents made the target and sold it for $$. Now that they got a bite, they'll try to sue for $$. Then they'll go on TV and talk about it for $$. Write a book $$. It goes on and on. This is probably the best thing that ever happened to them.

Lol. Watched a show about east st louis today. Basically every single pig from top to bottom was on the take and selling dope. Most had records before even being hired.

no biggie though. So was the mayor and just about everyone else in the local government.

Candidates have been rejected for being too intelligent, and courts have said that's OK.

I got that reason a year out of college.  Company needed a purchasing department set up from scratch.  I had one year of experience buying rail car parts.  They put me through half a day of tests and the shrink said,

"He's  too intelligent and creative to last more than two years in the job."

Nicest employment rejection I've ever had.

Well, people got to work somewhere. The problem is not that they are incapable of writing parking tickets. The problem is that they are allowed to swear testimony and sport guns. But they have measures within the police to take care of that. They could move him to traffic cop, or desk-jockey taking in public complaints, right?
 
2013-04-14 04:47:32 AM
Wait, wait, wait...

So you're telling me they actually FIRED the cop, instead of giving him a paid vacation to "solve" the problem?

There may be hope for Florida yet.

/lol, yeah right

Lsherm: Aced the test, I take it?


The point is this: You're willing to take one single 17 year old example and use it to support a claim that police agencies don't hire the best people they can find. That kind of evidence would get you thrown out of court on your ass. So, here's the challenge: Find me a second example.

I'll save you the trouble though. There isn't a second example.

Was it that, or were they trying to prevent others from making $$ on his name? I mean do they have licensed products using that name? Honest question.
