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?

Sometimes, it's a personality issue, they start out law abiding, and take the job to help people, but their is a certain group, that allow authority, to go to their head, and feel they can get away, with things, they wouldn't be able to, as a regular citizen. There is also, the mental aspect, in that, LEO, are exposed to a lot of grim scenarios, and are very susceptible to PTSD. Then they go home, and their significant other, doesn't understand the issues they're going through. LEO, have a high rate of alcoholism, domestic violence issues, etc. I know, I knew several LEO, that dealt, with some of those issues. There is also, the professional courtesy, whereby, a fellow LEO, will not arrest, another LEO, for infractions, and they get the idea, that they can get away with more and more serious crimes. JMHO
