Ive looked back on the thread and still don't see how im "ignorant" or and "asshole" or "cant take the heat". Everything I said was simply and observation and just my experience. But if you guys somehow felt offended, then I apologize.
Maybe you should just apologize, without the smarmy "I did nothing wrong!" part and we may enlighten you.

I don't think this new "personality" segment of the test will change anything. People will find out how to answer it and the test scores will go back up. Sucks that civil circus sabotaged this last group of test takers, but if your young enough just keep taking it and things should improve.

I would like to see the test go back to the old "blue book" style. You studied a book on laws and department policy and tested off of that. At least then new hires had a running knowledge of the job.

Of course this was contested by a "certain" group and we got the multiple choice, 100 questions and 10 grade reading level that i took for years :rolleyes:

Were people sabotaged? Maybe the scores, even though lower on average, are still in the order they would have been. My understanding of the new grading system was that it was intended to shrink the bands of applicants with the same score. It looks like it worked.

Is this a preview of what your gonna do if you become a cop. Let shit bother you for almost two weeks and try and figure out why some guy called you a fuckface on the side of the road. If that's the case, then maybe police work is not for you.

Keys are in it...

I won't tolerate people coming here and insulting our members, or being condescending know it all fucks. There's a STAGGERING wealth of information here, and I'll be damned if it's gonna get stomped on by ignorance and attitude.

Like people who take veiled shots at others. Don't think it didn't go unnoticed.

Mustang... All you had to do was say, "Sorry if I was outta line." But no. You had to say "I looked back to see when I was being a douche and I didn't see it!" You were. That's why you earned yourself a week off. My Lord, the entitlement generation never ceases to amaze me...

ok, well that answers that I guess. Clearly you guys don't want resolve the issue. Thought this forum would a place to interact with other LEO's/ future LEO's and get good info. It is what it is.
There you go again blaming someone else. It doesn't bother me, but your gonna need to fix that before you consider getting into the field. This forum is tame compared to the ball busting that happens on the job.

I believe what set you up for the title of know it all douche was the "my dads a trooper" comment and also "I hear knowing someone is just as good as being a veteran". Me being a combat veteran find that hilarious. That's just my observation on that subject. Anyway screw SSPO!

how the fuck does that make me a know It all? Like I fucking said. its what I heard. didn't say it was true.
Actually you did agree with someone else when they said it, so....

But tell me more about how officers should treat each other. I would love to know what a 21 year old that's never been on the job has for advice.

Nobody here cares kid. Don't come into our house and piss on the couch, get called out for being an entitled twat, then get defensive about your previous statements when called out on it. It's pretty clear.

Clearly put, you know so much of what IS NOT TRUE. Good luck with your, "Knowing somebody is just as good as veteran status."

You want advise, here it is. There are tons on people on this site that have been trying to be a PO, taking test after test, bettering themselves and working hard to get where they want to be. There is a lot of people, like myself who joined the military, went away from there friends and family for long periods of time, deployed and risked their lives. I, like JD find it laughable that you would even ask that question. Why should you get special treatment and cut the line in front of people who have been working hard to get where they want to go? I can tell you that knowing a trooper is not going to put you above anyone. It will help if you get a card and they start doing your background, if your father has a good rep. But try working for something, better yourself, your young, join the military, lots of good skills that apply to police work. But stop trying to shortcut and sidestep. No one is going to be happy that you are trying to get an undeserved handout when others have been working hard.
