permit holders are convicted of misdemeanor and felonies at one-sixth the rate at which police officers are convicted."
You hear a statistic like this pretty often, and I don't doubt that it's true. But today, it occurred to me to wonder, why it is the case? It's easy to understand that permit holders are going to be a pretty law abiding bunch - they get screened pretty carefully. But, the police are screened pretty carefully as well before being hired - so why do they wind up 6 times worse than permit holders?
There is never an excuse for bad behavior, I suspect that some LEO confuse authority with power. Although, just a very few do this, it doesn't take many to make the vast majority suspect. Just my thoughts. The LEOs I know are not like that and it would really hurt if any that I know turned.
