Third Fullerton cop indicted in beating death

    I worked in the Personnel Office for the City of Dallas Police Department. I trained people how to do background checks. What they look for in hiring a police officer is the ability to take care of oneself (history of being able to be aggressive when needed). This was 1992. There is a very fine line between someone who has a criminal potential and a criminal. Most of the time, they do weed them out; however….they also need to have severe psychological testing as part of the second interview to ascertain if they are capable of rogue violence.

    I have a great deal of respect for police officers, but I have seen and knew some REAL bullies…with the same potential as committing acts like these.
