I, too share your outrage and sentiment. You know, at one point last summer I was super close to becoming a NY state police officer (parks police, they are still state police though). I got denied at one of the very last barriers (the paranoid part of me believes it was political as no specific reason was given). Now that I look back on it, I know I would not have succeeded… because I would eventually be forced to quit. I wouldnt fit in at all and would refuse orders that were illegal or immoral.
Have you seen the ‘no more hesitation’ target series that the DHS uses?
