    Unlikely. They specifically don’t want applicants discussing the process and questions with the next guy in line, it keeps the playing field level not to give some applicants more time to think about the question. If they really didn’t they are stupid and some place you don’t want to work anyway... mire likely you didn’t realize it, don’t remember it or most likely are simply lying.

    I would much rather be stupid for a short time instead of being stupid for the rest of my life.
    This isn’t just about stupidity... it’s about being unable to recognize a deadly threat and react accordingly. A green civilian with no law enforcement or military training should be able to recognize that deadly force is required in that scenario. If you can’t see it in something that clear you don’t have what it takes.

    What do you mean by "hate"? Nobody here even knows you enough to be able to hate you.

    They agency did not have me sign a non disclosure agreement at any point. If there had been a non disclosure agreement in place I would not have made any mention of the scenario. I do deserve all the criticism, because it was a stupid question and I should have been much more clear on the response that I had given during the testing. But this is how you learn and grow as a person. I would much rather be stupid for a short time instead of being stupid for the rest of my life.

    Perfect example of why it's a punk move to delete a post. Somewhere there is an applicant wondering the same thing. They could use the information. Fortunately it was quoted.
    And yeah, I'm wondering about someone that signed a Non Disclosure agreement. So much for what your word is worth.

    Stupidity of the question?

    How about stupidity of the post? You DID sign a non-disclosure agreement...

    You won't be progressing further with the department but I do see a bright future for you in politics....
    ...or law.

    Dibs on his boots...

    Too late

    It was already quoted and thus preserved

What actions do you take?
    "Let him hold one!" Maybe more if he doesn't stop immediately.

    I recently completed my first OB and during the test there was a scenario question asked that really hit me unexpectedly. The scenario was:

You are the first to arrive on scene and see a 6'3" 330lb male standing over an unconscious officer. The male has the bat raised above his head and begins to swing it at the officer on the ground.

    I am still only an applicant and have never been in that situation. Would lethal force be the appropriate course of action in this situation? I would be fearing for the safety of the unconscious officer on the ground and believe that the suspect is about to severely harm the officer on the ground.

    I answered that I would have to rely on the training that I received from the academy and during FTEP. Taking a life is not an easy thing but if that was the only option left open to me, I would use lethal force to protect the life of a fellow officer. Especially when I believed that the male suspect was about to severely harm the officer who could not defend himself.

    If lethal force is not justified in this situation what would be a better course of action?
    Like with a baseball bat? Over the head? While you're unconscious and defenseless on the ground? While your partner ponders the correct course of action?

    If the poster couldn't make the immediate decision that deadly force is required to save the downed officer from getting beaten to death by a baseball bat he seriously needs to look for another profession in his life..

    Discussion by the officers conducting the oral board:
    ”He gives a vague non-answer to a simple scenario. That and he’s clearly hesitant to use force.”
    ”Yep, he’s indecisive.”
    ”Okay, then it’s settled. He’s the next chief.”

    The correct answer, fwiw, to such scenario is,

    "I would quickly exhaust my magazines in order to protect my partner from getting his head caved in."

    That's called a 'non-answer'.
