    You really have to narrow down what corruption is….
    #1 & #2 are bad.

    #3 is being creative.

    You want corruption? Here:

    Cop Accused Of Stealing Hot Dogs Gets Fired
    BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) ―

    A Bridgeport police officer accused of stealing hotdogs from a courthouse concession stand has been fired.

    Officer Murphy Pierce has been accused of stealing hot dogs from a vendor starting in late 2006 and later trying to tamper with witnesses in the case when the vendor complained.

    A panel of police commissioners has signed off on the decision to fire Pierce. The board says the intimidation began in September 2006 when Pierce approached Michael Pinto, who operates the "Snappy Dog" concession stand near the courthouse.

    The panel says Pinto feared losing his permit for the stand because the Police Department oversees that function.

    Pierce has denied all the charges.

    That's just stupidity.

    Unions have their good and bads. They prevent everybody from being paid slave wages. They also prevent bad people from getting fired and instead have them take "sensitivity training" BS, instead of getting someone else who can do the job a whole lot better.

    Some Departments are represented by Teamsters and they are a Union

    Or you can work for WALMART wages

    I'm envious of the cops who can always trust "management" to consistently be fair when it comes to wage increases, promotional opportunities and discipline.

    What number?

    I back my statement up with my personal experience, what I have seen and heard at work.

    Cops are humans, just like the rest of us. Like I said in another post, with the screening involved I think that you are going to get a better group but no screening in the world will weed out everyone.

    It Was Rampant!!!!!!!

    The clerk was constantly having to replace pens, paper clips, staples, photocopy paper and don't get me started on flashlight batteries

    Also the fussees in the garage kept disappearing along with the oil, tires and air filters.

    Fortunately the Lt. only had a fleet of ten vehicles and 20 Troopers

    I think it's hillarious that the likes of such students as Porkchop, and jannino view police corruption through the movie lens.

    Turbo: Policing, in general, is a very honest profession. But police are the enforcement arm of the goverment they serve and corrupt small town politics lends itself to creating corrupt small departments. I also believe that the best protection against systemic corruption is a no nonsense police supervisor.

    Don't think just because you work for a corrupt department that it is a problem with all departments.

    I say watch Sylvester Stallone's Cop Land and go from there....


    Seriously, sorry to hear what you're going through. You shouldn't have joined a department thinking you can change it from the bottom up...

    [QUOTE=Brendon;1731128]I honestly never do this, but 1+.

    It seems like Police are more corrupt than others, but only because the Police have more Authority on a daily basis. QUOTE]


    What are you talking about?? Have you ever worked in a Law Enforcement environment where you have first hand knowledge of this?
    According to your profile you're a student, what experience do you have of "corrupt cops"? Don't make these sensational statements without any real world knowledge of what you're talking about.
