He said now it's too much media attention, too much politics, and not enough qualified candidates.

Maybe if you stopped acting like wanton slobs 100% of the time, there wouldn't be so much media attention and associated politicking, and qualified candidates would be more interested in working with you?

About 4 years ago I applied for sheriffs dept. I made the first cut and was invited to participate in the physical fitness test run course. I passed the fitness course and was invited to move up the chain. After that started talking with the LEO's they had at the event. After talking with them I decided I didn't want to be part of their team. They were "off" in my opinion. They pinged me a bad direction so to say. I also thought about what you would see on a daily basis... either people in a very bad routine or people having "the worst day of their lives" To do that day after day in a jail/correctional type setting would/does wear on everyone. I decide I wanted no part of that career.

/glad I didn't get into law enforcement.

I'm not really sure you should want to be associated with stormtroopers. It's almost like they want to hire trigger-happy Nazi murderers.

Why is their aim so important prior to hiring? Beat cops don't need guns--this just leads to police murdering innocent people.

They're being asked to join a force under attack politically.  Good people, especially, are not going to want to put up with being called racist and worse when the vast majority of police will never be involved in a death or shooting, and just joined for the career/pension/stability or genuinely want to protect people in their community.

My son is in police academy.  He's not white. His grandfather is black.  His reason is because he saw the police stop a psycho from beating some guy badly when he was about 10, and has wanted to be an officer since.

A friend of my wife's wanted to be a crime scene investigator. Four year degree, got a job, lasted a day.

Her first case was a baby brutalized to death . She still can't get the smell out of her brain.

Law enforcement has you seeing the very worst of people. I can't imagine many people want to dive into that world.

Yeah, it is naive. They're not legally allowed to become police officers, vote, own a firearm, or many other things, by the time they reach adulthood, often for trivial offenses like smoking weed.

The system is institutionally racist. It's set up as a cradle-to-slave system with laws and enforcers specifically designed to prevent minorities from gaining any form of equality or power through the system itself. It disenfranchises people--and then we say, "Well, you're not a person anymore. You're a Felon!"

Telling someone to go through the "proper channels" is bullshiat, when those "proper channels" are the very system that's set up to thwart "going through proper channels".

friend of mine has been a cop for 6 years. She started different outreach programs geared toward getting kids of single parents off the streets and helping the parents make sure they have everything they need. It's been pretty successful and she has made inroads with getting immigrants and minorities to trust her. She was just told her program is getting cut because the department need a 3rd armadillo swat vehicle. This town has just over 100,000 people and they haven't even used their backup one ever. She's also been the subject of harassment by male officers and when she complained for over 2 years and nothing was done somehow it got leaked to the media. She's one of the good cops. She has the stats of crime dropping in her area and kids staying out of trouble and all the top people want is another armed carrier and why she isn't arresting more people walking around her neighborhoods. She just put in her 2 month notice (using PTO for that time) and got a county cop job in a rural country. She's beyond bummed out.

It's almost like, if they're really going to Protect and Serve, they'll need to do a serious institution-sized overhaul of the system first.

We need police, but not the kinds we've been seeing in the news lately.

GD autocorrect....meant county. Her stress relief is hiking with her husky rescue. She hasn't realized he would rather die than get tired. Meanwhile a cop who belongs to our pool is on his almost 20th year of being an asshole to everyone and said it's not that stressful and he wished he could have used live ammo but there were too many cameras out and he couldnt have talked his way out of "this one". I took that to mean he's killed before and gives 0 farks who knows. And yes he has a Punisher This Blue line decal on the back window of his F150

Good people, generally speaking, won't be accused of being racist because they probably won't commit racist acts.

To my mind, good people don't want to become police officers because they don't want to join a gang of armed, violent thugs whose first instinct is to protect each other from the consequences of bad, or even evil, decisions.

When the entire system that protects bad cops from accountability is a thing of the past, then I can pretty much guarantee that the good people you mentioned will feel free to join the police department and make a positive difference in people's lives.

Best of luck to your son. I mean that.

That's not what I'm saying.

I was considering a semi-subversive concerted effort to flood the police with Black people.
... which is of course ridiculous when reality is taken into account .. but, whatever ... I'm allowed to have my silly ideas.
 
2020-06-16 2:29:19 PM  
There's a simple solution: the Legislature has to pass a law stating that People of Color are exempt from the law.

It'd work like this:

Police:  "You're under arrest for shooting up a school full of kids. You were found at the scene, the entire thing was recorded on HD CCTV, there are 50 witnesses, we've got your manifesto off of your social media, and you have tested positive for gun shot residue."

Suspect:  "I identify as black."

Police: "Oh, let me get those cuffs off, you're free to go."

Yes, it's a interesting fantasy, and might possibly work in an alternate reality where that plan wasn't dead in the water to start with. The whole system is rigged to ensure that they can be reclassified as unpersons any time they start to push back, so they never get a chance.

White supremacists are complete wastes of oxygen, but they're not all stupid, and it would be wise to assume intelligence and organization. You have to treat the problem realistically to get anywhere.

I'm not sure what point you're trying to make, but it occurs to me that maybe I wasn't staying my point clearly enough. Please allow me to try again:

Alex10294 expressed an apprehension that good people will not want to join police departments because they don't want to be unjustly accused of being racists.

What I mean to reply is this:

Good people don't want to join police departments NOW because they know that if they witness a fellow officer committing a crime or abusing someone, they will face retribution, possibly up to and including death, for doing the right thing and opening their mouths.

What kind of "good person" would want to join an organization like that?
 
2020-06-16 4:39:49 PM  
"I don't know who wants to come into this profession right now when everything that we do seems to be wrong."
