  • Are these DGs?

    No I'm not going to start off by saying that I robbed a bank.

    There are altough few problems that I'm worried about.

    Ultimately the worst problem:

    1. Once when I was 15 or 16 I threatened to kill myself. It was just a prank (yes definitely not a very smart one *sigh*) and I wrote that I'm going to throw myself under a 18 wheeler near the highway on our school. I was on ninth grade by the time. Of course I wouldn't ever do anything like that. Especially killing yourself in that way would be stupid because it would cause tremendous harm for the truck driver and I think all suicides done in the way that other people get involved are just sick.

    So I ordered (or my parents ordered for me, can't remember) this magazine and I was in their forum area in internet and that required registration and you could see the real names of whoever wrote there. So some guys were talking about their hard past and how they almost killed themself (it was a PC gamer magazine btw) so at that time I THOUGHT that I had really tough time (the usual parents divorce, alcoholic parents, school not going well) so I wrote I could waste myself also.

    Then this official moderator (also one of the article writes for the magazine) asked and warned that if I was serious he will report it to the police. I said sure I'm serious.

    So after like 40 to 60 minutes a police car drove by the town library (no lights or sirens, just happened to see it trough a window) where I was. I had left in the middle of the day from school because I was tired so I said I was sick. The patrol car was coming from the way my old school used to be and was going where I lived and where the highway was. I looked at it and thought "Crap! Did the guy really call the police?" and because I used to live in country and it was rare to see patrol cars there I knew something was going on. It was very rare to see police around there. So I asked the guy in the forum since he was online and he said yes he had to report me.

    I was like "Oh crap..." and at the same time my mom called to my cellphone and asked where was I and was everything OK. I thought this is seriously getting out of hands so I told my mom that I'm in the town library. I wrote in the forum that thanks but I'm OK... After another 20 minutes an unmarked police car pulled in the front of the library (I was already waiting for them outside). All I could think of was this is really going to cost me since they actually deployed officers for this. I don't know why I was thinking that but I remember that I did .

    So one of the two officers just asked that if everything is OK and was it really a prank. I was so embarrassed and felt like an idiot (which I no doubtly was) and I said yes it was a prank and I'm sorry. The officer shook my hand and they were on their way. My mum came and took me home but she was just like it's not a big deal.

    I left the school because I had to change cities because I moved to live with my dad because I wanted to go high school in the city where I was born.

    Here you can go home school or normal school in Finland. I chose home schooling for the last few months and I just went back to the old school to finish the final exams for ninth grade and after that it was summer off. Then I normally started high school in Turku city.

    I thought everything was going to be fine BUT:

    The weird thing is that my very last day in this old school one of my teachers asked that did I get some medication for my "problem". I was so stunned that I said "Er.. Sure" and he was like yeah OK good luck. Never got any "medication" for my "problem" but I guess that they did notify my school about this suicide rampage...

    And when I moved to Turku to live with my dad there was another problem ahead. My mum AND my dad wanted me to visit shrink. It was official city's "shrink center" for juveniles and problem childs. The funny part was that the doctor there was really cool. He evaluated me in 10 minutes and said there is nothing wrong with me and he wanted to talk to my parents alone. After like 30 minutes he called me in again and said that (now this was priceless!) the problem seems to be with my parents because they can't communicate with each other. So the doc dismissed me and I walked home (we lived ONE block away from this center but my dad lived there 6 years before this so it wasn't planned ). My dad told me later that the doctor recommended that he and my mum to keep seeing the shrink but I was OK would never have to go back. My dad didn't want to go back there either altough my mum said he and I should.

    But later when I was 18 and had to go to the army the nurse in call-up asked me if I had any mental problems because she could see that I had ONE visit to the city mental help center or whatever it's called. She said that she can see on their computer that there is one visit there but it's not specified. I said no I have no mental problems and I want to join and she didn't need no further explanations.

    After that I visited the mental care center and spoke with another doctor who told me that they can't remove the visit (against the law) but they can put specification that it was just a rutine check for a child underaged because your parents wanted/ordered you to visit here. I said I guess that will be OK if you can't remove it...

    So never have I had any problems with this issue (as far as I know it hasn't affected anything) and I completed my military service in Navy without the subject ever coming up. Also when I used to work as a security guard I got my license and stuff without any problems.

    Now I do understand that this was my fault but I still think that my parents did overreact for taking me to see the doc since they said it wasn't a big deal first. And like the doc said they were ones to have issues not me...

    Sorry I wrote this so long my I wanted to make sure that I don't get any TIMTTS (There Is More To The Story) So I was wondering would this DG me from being a police officer?

    2. I never went to college. Will this be a problem?

    BTW I never had any trouble with the law. Only times I ever went to see police is when I found a wallet and another time when I found a backbag with camera, two phones and other expensive stuff and a photo album to police station.

    Thanks for your time! Be safe out there!

                    I live in Finland. I would like to move to USA and work as a police officer.

                    I want to know if these could disgualify me:

                    1) Prank internet post where I said that I will kill myself and police was called
                    2) I never went to college

                    Apparently I am not qualified to work as a police officer in USA because of these reasons. Now I only want to know is it because reason number 1 or 2 or both of them.

                    Also I used the wrong abbreviation of the word "disqualify" because I typed it "DG" and the correct form would have been "DQ".

                      Well the officers only questioned me about it and army call-up nurse only asked one question about it and I completed my military service time normally and I understand that my medical record (if it shows anymore) says that one rutine visit check wanted by parents. Also I got my security guard license last year normally without any questions about anything so I myself don't see this as a huge problem since I think that the "record" don't show anymore because I'm adult now.

                              You can't be a cop in the US since you aren't a citizen. Secondly, you need to look at each state and see what the minimum qualifications are. In MN you need college.
