We continue to be our own worst enemy

It seems we continue to be our own worst enemy. Sure we all slow roll to the obvious BS calls, or the "call the man/woman/whoever" calls.... But residential burglarys and unconscious 5 year old kids..... Just flat out worthless...

I think we have all had the displeasure of working with individuals such as these at some point unfortunately. The sad truth is that there will always be "officers" like this and they will need to be dealt with. Its just a shame that it gets to this extent before something is done about it.

Yeah...I knew a guy who, durring a day shift who unbuttoned his uniform shirt and racked out. Not the best thing to do under most circumstance, but a really bad thing to do durring a day shift. All the brass work durring the days. Sure enough, they rolled up on him.

The guy got fired twice for various things. The second time stuck.

You get what you pay for, or, more likely what you lower your standards to hire.

Unfortunately I am EXTREMELY familiar with this term. We had a high ranking administrator that was well known as being ROD for about the last 12 years of his career or so.

He has since retired, and things have been improving ever since.

The one time I almost lost it in front of everyone was responding to a hot call and coming up fast behind another responding unit traveling "code zero".

I about pushed them out of the way, got by, and after the scene was secured went looking for them.

Departments actively, agressively recruit minorities. The give them preferential treatment in MANY aspects of the hiring process. Such behavior including and especially overlooking aspects of the background investigations which would disqualify a white male.

Why then shouldn't these hirees feel like teflon dons? They know that their presence is fulfilling minority quotas established by the courts to "make things fair". Of course they don't worry about being punished.

It is a system of malfeasance and poor judgements on behalf of the hiring agencies which will absolutely result in a culture of under performing / corrupt police officers.

I see no changing of these standards and trends in the future. As you can see they are moving up the ranks to supervisory positions wherein the culture of protecting these slackers and miscreants has become so firmly entrenched as to be insurmountable.

Have I mentioned recently how happy and relieved I am to be retired?

You should run for congress!!!

There are lazy ****s in every profession Look at our president for example

I worked a trucking company when I was young (teamsters)
Laziest folks I have ever seen. I was a casual.
I have had 2x4s thrown at me for working to hard...

One night on the shift before me one of the guys had a massive heart attack in a trailer and died!
half way through the shift someone finally noticed he had not moved and checked on him...
The guy sat there for 3-4 hours dead and no one thought it was strange he had not moved..... they thought he was just reading the paper like normal!

I think most people know cops like this are the exception not the rule, that's why it makes the news when it happens.

What a bunch of losers. I'm glad they got canned, and I hope they never have another job with any kind of responsibility again.

This isn't the kinda of work where you can take scheduled breaks, play a stress card or slack off.

Eff them.

I don't get how anyone could blow off responding to an unconscious five month old. Disgraceful.

I was discussing hiring standards with a guy at work and came to the conclusion that motivation was the most important qualification.
