In most of Europe where police do tend to be able to resolve all the same common crimes far less violently, it requires 2-3 years (country depending) to become a cop. Hyuge difference!Fair enough.
I do think the time it become an LEO is stupidly short.
It takes almost 4 times as long to learn how to clean teeth.
The academy is usually way too short. Too short to to weed out bad ones and get enough training for the good ones.
Not enough ongoing training either for that matter. Too much is expected to be learned on the job from a FTO.
If that FTO is a dirt bag in a dirt bag department it will just be passed on to the new newbie.
I know several police officer that I support 100%.
Shit, I would step in front of a bullet for them, just like they would fore me.
I agree we have an issue and need to improve but the current shit going on isnt exactly taking us in the right decision.
I do support the blue line but I dont worship them either. The older I get the less I trust the police. Sad to say but we have seen enough shit to demand changes.
I do demand changes and will do so by voting. I totally oppose whats going on now and Im ready for water cannons and live ammo.
