More often than not, we all read over and over again when the police are involved in wrongdoing that it is explained as being a "training issue" by the police themselves. If the police out in LA for example; blast the living sh#t out of a pick up truck with two innocent elderly ladies in it; in a knee jerk reaction to the ex Officer Dormer mess; it is quickly dismissed as nothing more than a "training issue". If the Mass State Police somehow manage to beat a passenger in a vehicle to death at the site of a sobriety checkpoint; it is nothing more than a "training issue". If the Malborough police storm into the apartment of an innocent elderly man and somehow manage to shoot him to death in a botched raid on two extremely low level drug dealers; it is explained away as "the gun of the cop somehow discharged"; which is nothing more than a training issue. That's all. No real harm done in any of these examples.
Many other times; "job related stress" is explained away as being the cause for police wrongdoing. The wrongdoing cop is somehow not responsible for his behavior; "job related stress" is to blame. That is all there is to it.
So, knowing all of THAT; I strongly feel that when a cop decides that he wants to become a cannibal; it must simply be a case of a lack of training. Some good old fashioned police training is in order. That's all.
Or perhaps job related stress made this cop become a madman. That's all. He is not really responsible for his actions. The stress of being a cop is.
I say this cop should enjoy the same exact opportunities and perks as hundreds of our nation's cops are enjoying each year. Just dodge any responsibility at all and dismiss it as a training issue; or job related stress; or better yet; both.
I say spring this man immediately; reinstate him; give him his back pay; and then train him and give him some therapy for job related stress. He should not be singled out and treated any different than the rest of our nation's cops.
