Very simply put:
I think that US local Police Officers should make 150k a year base salary.
I think that the bar to become a US local Police Officer should not require a college degree, but simply require an intense two years of training that focuses on restraint and understanding that an officer should be held to a higher moral standing than the average citizen and not a lesser standing.
Also, the penalty for breaking the law (for an officer) should be clear: send them out to sea to die.
>higher moral standing than the average citizen and not a lesser standing.
I think the Jewish Illuminati media should have a bit more respect for the honorable and brave men and women who protect our world from danger and crime.
IE: They should discontinue the stories which instill a distrust in the Police Force, painting them as unstable trigger happy animals.
You fags can't begin to imagine the stresses they take on daily basis, upholding th law, constantly on guard in case someone pulls a weapon on them, the slanderous news stories don't help any.
Police should be paid not only a higher salary but a greater amount of respect so they can feel their time and efforts are worth it
Are you a derp? Without higher education they start at a great wage. I grant you they are putting their lives at risk via the job requirements. But is there no middle ground whereby the police are better trained and the people of the nation in more respect of their authority?
We live in a world where, quite often, the people who shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a gun or the authority to carry a gun and enforce laws, are the ones we most allow to become policing authority.
I think protectors of the state should not wed or hold property either. They should not be influenced by vices of man in any sense so they have the highest moral justice. They shouldn't be paid anything either for they should not want anything but justice. They will be fed by the community due to their service, the most fit should be selected for breeding but never introduced to their child. They should also not mingle with the rest of the community either. Also they should be selected for this life around the age of 12 when their physical and mental attributes could be evaluated. This way they would only exist to uphold justice, have nothing to lose or gain and will be of pure mind.
i don't know much of the training requirements or regulations
i just turn my head up at the news stories painting police as inhumane or heartless for the occasional accidental shooting where an officer has to make a judgment call under high stress and errs on the side of caution.
seems a lot of the gritty side of police work such as this could only be learned thru on-the-job experience. how can you prepare someone to deal with peeling a dead body off the highway? A grisly murder case, etc. These people deserve to be treated with respect and friendly manner so they can know that you mean them no harm. It goes a long way in avoiding tickets and creating a peaceful relationship
>Also, the penalty for breaking the law (for an officer) should be clear: send them out to sea to die.
I presume they would just get rescued by some other country that wants free cops
>I dont't know much about ...
Me either. And I honestly question my own judgment about some of the shooting cases that, in hindsight, seem abhorrent.
I just feel like there's a possible answer in placing way more training and a much higher mar in who can be a police officer. Say we (the US) pulls back from some budget-major issue (Iraq, whatevez)... and we put it into a more serious level of requirements of police... as well as up their pay, so that they have reason to apply. AND have severe more penalties for bad cops... I dunno.
Like, say, by year 10 of an officers tenure, they reach a base salary of 200k (usd). BUT, all the same dangers apply, but an extra danger of being assumed guilty instead of innocent in a court of law in cases where the officers actions are ambiguous (think martin, and so on)
I'm cool with a better redistribution of funds, I'm just looking for ideas about how we can encourage a necessary institution (police) to be more responsible and understand that they are a function of society and not an owner of society with indiscretional rights of force.
What do I do as a person who just doesn't happen to have (insert your preferred weapon here; guns/martial-arts/knives/etc...) available if a neighbor is threatening me or my family? Or just a random mugger? I basically hate the current implementation of police in the US but I wouldn't drop them without a better ideas in place.
