There are some police that do stick needles into them. They do steroids in this fashion. The new police contract should have demanded steroid testing! They carry guns and the city is liable for them.What is wrong with you? On one post you claim police are over wheight and not fit for duty and then you post the cops are steroid junkies sticking needles in them. Please make up your mind. The police are fair people I don't understand why you bad mouth them.
And YES, some police are criminals. I know it may be a shocker to you. It is unfortunate to me as I feel that this should be unacceptable. There are NO consequences for improper behavior. This creates an atmosphere that polutes all police to some degree.
For example, if the corrupt officer is a Captain. Everyone knows it. He stops and starts investigations that make officers eyes roll with suspician but they follow orders. If they don't then they are held accountable!!
Sorry to bust your bubble. Yes, there are many honest law abiding officers. I believe that more than 70 percent are honest and law abiding. Then their is the thin blue line to follow.
My opinion is that there are plenty of young law enforment recruits waiting to be employed and that the corrupt ones should be sent on their way, out of the force and not up the ladder!
The less accountability the less civility!
