It was this last case that got me thinking. You know, my uncle was LAPD many years ago, and he was a state trooper in alaska to. Not one storey he told us involved accidentally killing someone. Not one. sure, plenty of beatings, fights, wrestling matches and such, but no killings. His take on all this is that race and sex (gender) IS part of this problem. its his opinion that the selection process for cops has gotten way to lax due to race and gender and the need to have folks of a particuler color or gende in a uniform, as well as just needing bodies. i share his opinion that the quality of police officer has gone way down. i agree, the woman who pulled her glock instead of her taser is a prime excample of a woman who was put in a position she couldent handle, given a weapon she likely only recieved video instruction on simply because she was a woman. in my mind, its not that she, a woman shouldent be doing that job, Im saying THAT woman probubly shouldent have been doing THAT job. It was obvously beyond her means. PD's need to work on the quality of cop they produce. This isnt a race/gender issue, its a quality control issue.
