Cops that aren’t fit to be in uniform… literally. The important conversation we’re not having.

A lot of “thin blue line” types aren’t going to like this… We need to focus a LOT more on screening who we are giving a badge and a gun to. We can’t afford weak, scared, over reactive people with fragile dispositions to be policing our communities while armed. That goes for cops of ANY race. It seems many departments have armed themselves to military levels while reducing the screening and criteria of those receiving badges. Once there were physical standards at the very least. At our towns 4th of July celebration we could not spot one damn doughnut hole in a uniform that looked like he could run 200 yards without passing out. We have another Deputy in our area of the county who literally looks like Barney Fife, 125 lbs. soaking wet, his uniform doesn’t even fit (hopefully he only has one bullet in his gun). If we’ve reduced the physical standards to the point of no option but to shoot because detainment’s out of the question physically, where the hell are we on the mental screening? Face it, some of these people being hired and given a badge are literally not fit, physically or mentally, to be on patrol. This is a side of the problem getting very little attention while we praise everyone in uniform as a “hero”. Much like gun ownership seems now the only criteria for the local law enforcement academy is no felonies. What the hell kind of standard is that?
