If I remember correctly, if you are injured you are put on light duty and still allowed to continue the academy. You WILL be singled out and encouraged to quit but ultimately you make that decision. There is a certain period of time where you will need to come off of “light duty” or whatever the hell they call it because you are allowed to miss only so much PT before they eventually just kick you out.Can 100% confirm this. The MSP does not give two shits about their recruits that get injured. Even when you are in the hospital for days no one will contact you, or your family. You won’t hear a fucking peep until you call them and tell them that you need to resign after the doctor tells you “No physical activity for a month and a half minimum”. When they hear that, they can’t get up to the hospital fast enough with your resignation paper work
For those of you that make it to the academy, just remember that that entire place is nothing but a fuck fuck game. Ignore the bullshit and everything the DI’s tell you. Oh, and try not to laugh too hard when they tell you “reputation is everything.” I know I almost burst out laughing the first time I heard that come out of a DI’s mouth.
