A Modest Argument About Police Culture Culminating in a Reference to the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Whites have sinners and saints.
Blacks have sinners and saints.
Oregonians, Texans, and New Yorkers have sinners and saints.
Accountants, hairdressers, and coal miners have sinners and saints.
Law Enforcement, though, is unlike all of these – the job description is organized bullying, and that (a) attracts psychopaths and (b) converts non-psychopaths into – at worst – psychopaths, and – at best – into those who merely tolerate, absolve, and cover up for the psychopaths. [Popehat]
This post pretty well sums up my own view of police.
