    The local news has had several reports that many cities, counties & state police have not been successful in recruiting officers to replace retirees. One young man was considering applying but told the reporter that he & his friends won't risk their lives when they get no respect. He said criminals are made out to be heroes & law enforcement is considered to be villains when they do their job. I have a friend who is retiring from the police force because of the reasons stated. The city he is retiring from has had little success retaining & attracting qualified applicants for the police force.. I don't know why anybody would want to be in law enforcement with a presidential administration hostile to law and order.

    Not to mention the Ferguson Effect on neighborhoods. Let em shoot each other and figure out the dead guys when they're done.

    Almost 80% of the homicides no one charged.
    Ferguson effect?

    we cannot have these numbers
    now 1 of 2 things must happen
    either white people start shooting each other more so the statistics level out
    or
    stop counting black shooting until the statistics level out

    One does have to wonder. There is a lot of noise and allegations that whites are unjustly killing blacks but look what they are doing to themselves?

    plus there is no respect for law enforcement in certain communities
    in addition, lack of jobs and lack of opportunity make people despite
    maybe importing hundreds of thousands of low and no skill workers isn't a good idea

    I think anyone who seen that young guy hauled into the paddy wagon can see that he was killed by the police.
    The driver just got acquitted and they were saying he did it. I can see the young guy was already beat up badly when they were carrying him into the wagon.

    Is what the police did to this kid ok and allowed to be swept under the rug?
    Maybe only when it happens to your kid you will see things differently?
    Maybe not :idunno:

    My kid?? If that was my kid, I'd tie him up, throw him in back of the pickup and hit every speed bump in town....and a few curbs. :17142:

    Police Officer Recruitment has been on the decline since the early 90's and the reasons why are many. Negative publicity over high profile incidents of racial profiling and excessive use of force is just one. The wars in Irag and Afghanistan siphon off public service minded people. Students seeking higher education and pursuing professional positions in technology and the private sector are just a few.

    To say any President (Not just our current) is hostile toward law enforcement is absurd.

    Do what exactly get their ass kicked by the cop?
    Anyones kid can have that happen.
    Can anyone tell us what that young man did exactly to warrant arrest and a beating?
    Nope no one knows all we know is he had a legal pocket knife in his pocket and he was riding a bicycle.
