College-educated cops less likely to use force, but more likely to quit police jobs

A new study at Michigan State University reveals that college-educated police officers are less likely to use force on citizens — but that they are also far more likely to be dissatisfied with their job and quit.

In almost every country a cop is not paid what he's worth.  If you under remunerate you limit your selection criteria.  If they up the entry criteria and remunerate the guys much better then they will attract a higher quality of applicant.  Then we have this phenomenon with humans who absolutely transform into assholes the minute they don a uniform and pack heat.  Yet, there are incredible cops who see it as a calling / career instead of just a job to put food on the table.

​Good point ! And maybe true in many cities, here in my home town in Iowa state a city police officer starts at $66,000 per year and has a cost of living increase every year and to if he/she has any other advanced capability the wage can sky rocket to as much as $185,000 per year depending on training . Larger cities have lower wages and are jungles to work in some of our police here have been recruited from large cities like Chicago but most are just home boys/and one girl that grow up here . This is not a bad town to live in; at lest we don't have cops shooting unarmed people in the back . But then we do have our issues with some corruption .

Seems the world over cops are more of a problem than a solution?  http://www.whitenationnetwork.com/paper/?p=40702

Here is an extract and there is more at the link..


The South African Police Service have been deteriorating at a neck-break speed since 1994 from a once well and organized disciplined protection force – to  one of the biggest governmental funded criminal syndicates in Africa. Today the rot and decay runs ten thousand deep. Many cases have been reported of police brutality, rapes, murders, corruption, bribery, cash heists, gun smuggling, assault  and other criminal actions by so-called members of  the South African police.


Notorious Police commissioner- Jacki Selebi- first of a line of commissioners jailed for corruption and received “medical parole” by Jacob Zuma.

Today reality in South Africa dictates that the public is in much safer hands and receive a much better service and faster response from private security companies – than the so-called police themselves. The general public have a bigger chance of being harmed , abused and killed by the South African police than by common  criminals. It appears that not only the communist ANC regime- but also it’s “strong arm” are waging a war against it’s disarmed citizens. In recent years, the South African Police Service (SAPS) has come under the spotlight due to the increasing number of incidents in which civilians have been assaulted or even killed by the police. Cases such as the August 2012 killing of 34 mineworkers in Marikana in the North West province, the death of Mido Macia after being dragged behind a police van in Daveyton in Gauteng province, and the ruthless March 2014 assault on Clement Emekeneh in Cape Town (4) are just the tip of the iceberg of the ever escalating brutality of the SAPS.The police force provides a prime example of the violence that is so prevalent in South Africa. Numerous incidents of police brutality have been highly publicized in local and international media.

Award-winning Wits Justice Project senior journalist Carolyn Raphaely observes, vis-à-vis the SAPS, that “an entrenched culture of impunity, with little regard for consequence or culpability, indicates that South Africa has learnt little from the lessons of the past.” Assault, torture, beatings, as well as killings have become part and parcel of the modus operandi of the SAPS. Although legislation does not condone police brutality, Raphaely reveals that police officers involved in brutality and human rights violations are rarely brought to book. According to her, “Only one conviction was obtained in 217 deaths allegedly at the hands of the police or in police custody, as investigated by the directorate in Gauteng in 2011/12.”

Fatalities and criminal cases against the

Although this graph shows a slight decrease from 2010 in levels of criminal cases against the police as well as police-related deaths, the figures still remain unreasonably high. A total of 2,320 criminal cases against the police in the 2011/12 reporting period alone is intolerable. Furthermore, the 2012/13 report by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) shows that the number of cases reported involving police misconduct and brutality continue to rise alarmingly. The table below shows the changing levels of reported cases between the 2011/12 and 2012/13 periods of review:

Number of cases reported to the IPID

The IPID was formed in April 1997 to deal with cases that involve improper discharge of duties by the police. The prime duties of the IPID involve investigating crimes allegedly committed by police officers, including violations of SAPS policy as well as national legislation. Section 4 of the IPID Act regulates the relationship between the IPID and state organs in such a manner that its operations remain impartial and independent. In its 2012/13 annual report, the IPID disclosed that “a total of 6,728 cases were received by the IPID during the reporting period. The majority of the cases received were assault cases, namely 4,131. Seven hundred and three of all cases received were other criminal matters, whereas 670 were complaints of discharge of official firearms and 431 of the cases were deaths as a result of police action.” Interestingly, of the 6,728 cases received by the IPID, only 84 convictions were effected. This means that just 1.2% of criminal cases opened against law enforcement officials during that time resulted in a conviction.

Such statistics have led Burger and Cyril Adonis (Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation) to author a report whose title likens the independent investigative directorate to a “watchdog without teeth.” Reiterating this same point in an interview on the programme South 2 Northon Al-JazeeraRedi Tlabi pointed out to Commissioner of Police Riah Phiyega that the IPID might not be as effective as the legislation that led to its creation. Tlabi affirmed that in the past, the “IPID has complained that the recommendations they make to the SAPS don’t get implemented and the police actually close rank.” It is perplexing that although there are legislation and investigative directorates in place to ensure that the SAPS operates efficiently and in a manner respecting human rights and dignity, cases of police brutality and impunity continue to soar. What worsens this situation is the fact that taxpayers have to literally pay for the brutality of police. According to a report by the ISS, the cases of police brutality brought against the SAPS in 2013 have had serious “consequences for the tax-payer as [SAPS] was facing civil claims valued at more than R480 million [US$ 46 million] in relation to assault, and R1.1 billion [US$ 100 million] related to shooting incidents. Total claims against the police have doubled in the past two years to R14.8 billion (US$ 1.4 billion)- Source

More than2000   cases already were logged with the Police Investigation Unit against villainous police  criminal activities against members of the public. More than 600 police officers have been arrested for corruption. The irony is that even the head of the Police Investigation Unit is a hardened criminal – Robert McBride (again under investigation)– with a history of violence and mismanagement. He also is the notorious Church Street bomber who maliciously killed 3 people in the Church Street bombing.


Criminal Robert McBride- Under investigation-  yet again.

All the appointed Police commissioners also was under investigation for corruption- even the current commissioner-  Riah Piyega.(Source)Amnesty International has expressed serious concerns about brutality, including torture and extrajudicial killings, at the hands of the police in South Africa. Former Constitutional Court judge Zak Yakoob has argued that the post-apartheid police force is not much better than the apartheid police force. Sipho Hlongwane, writing in Business Day, has argued that “South Africa is a brutal police state.



Bheki Cele- another hoodlum that acted as Police Commissioner- found guilty of corruption- re-instated by the Zuma regime as minister of agriculture.

Parliament has heard that only nine members of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate’s top management, including suspended boss Robert McBride,do not even  have a security clearance. (Source) (Source).Experts have indicated that police brutality in South Africa have soared with more than 313% and 1722 complains  logged with the investigating authorities since the ANC illegally hi-jacked the country in 1994(Source) 


The irony again is that nothing is done against this criminals in blue. As always- the cases always are “under investigation“- where-after it mysteriously ends in a” cold case” as the Police Department protects it’s own criminals against prosecution. The public thus are left in the mercy of organized thugs that are supposed to protect them. In the latest move the previous police commissioner- Bheki Cele- who also was dismissed from his position for corruption- was re-instated by the criminal ANC as Deputy Minister of Agriculture. With a pack of criminals leading from the top- it then is no wonder that the South African Police have became the most notorious organized crime syndicate in the history of South Africa- leaving the law-abiding citizens at the mercy of both the police and criminals.
