Or here.

Bad it is sad when in some places the trust is lost.

This is not a sign of everyplace, but there was a small town somewhere in my
state where the State actuall stripped the two of it's policing authority,
took over the duties in the short term, and just finished putting a whole
new police dept back in.

That's because a lot of them are going out of their way to earn it and
ruining the reputation of the good ones in the process.

Unfortunately we just happen to be seeing stuff that always existed
thanks to small portable cameras that most folks have clipped to their
belts. There are pretty much two kinds of cops. Those who understand who
their employer is (us) and what their job is and what rules they need to
live by and those with personality flaws who decide it is a great way to
have authority over others. I would say the former are the majority.

My nephew (a cop) complains that no matter how much the
department tightens up the screening process, some bad eggs keep getting
through.

Maybe because they reject people for being too smart...

Re: Police Officers

The military has done the same thing for a very long time. The last thing
they want to do is to give a gun to someone bright enough to figure out it
makes more sense to shoot the idiot giving orders than to carry out orders
that are stupid. The find better places to put those people.

Creative problem solving is not real popular with the military either.

I don't know that the propensity to shorten the chain of command correlates
with IQ. According to one Korean War vet I knew, the biggest dangers to
wet-behind-the-ears Army Second Lieutenants were guys who had grown up in
very rural places.

When I was in Viernam in early 1969 I saw a memo being circulated that
pointed out that the Army had reached the point where the majority of new
enlisted men were college graduates. Someone high in the chain of command
seemed to think this might be a problem.

Re: Police Officers

In Viet Nam they lowered the IQ standards down below 85 (I believe). I
think they were dubbed the "Moron brigade".

My little town was almost bankrupted by bad cops about two years ago
because the various court awards went way over our insurance. Another
neighboring town is going through the same thing. According to the local
paper they have had to pay over $2 million beyond their insurance
coverage. Sad part about that one is everyone seemed to know that the
particular cop was a "problem" but never did anything. The good news is
that now there are lots of cameras to catch them in action so it is more
than your word against theirs.

Then there are cops who do the right thing and don't forget they are our
employees. Last summer I was taking a family member back to an out of
town hospital for a followup a week after they had extensive surgery.
The car engine simply stopped for no apparent reason and I was able to
coast off to the shoulder. A PSP car pulled up behind us within a
minute. I was fully expecting something like I once experienced where
the cop informed me that the car was unsafe and he would call his friend
to immediately tow it and I would have to figure out how to get home.
Instead she asked where I was going and since it was a hot day we were
welcome to come back and sit in her car to figure it out. I called AAA
to have the car towed. I was out of town and asked here what was the
best way to get to the hospital since we were now getting close to
closing hours. She said "give me your keys and I will wait for the tow
truck" then she messaged another trooper who quickly showed up and drove
us right to the hospital.
