Wrong Selection Methods

This recent scandal of a high ranking Canadian officer and all the other wrongdoings of the Canadian authorities, including many police officers, proves that the selection method of the government agencies is way too wrong. I remember this time that I was in a police recruiting centre when the policemen and policewomen kids were receiving special treatment from the recruiting crew, very different from us, the regular applicants: How's your Mommy constable?! How's your Daddy Sargent!?
If somebody's Dad or Mom is a police officer, does that guarantee that he or she makes a good one too!? It's like that fat fuck, M. W. that I used to work with. He used to make every police car stopped just to tell the officer that his that had been a police officer too!
I mean do I still live in Medieval Times that authority would be transferred to the next generation!? That's fucking daft! We have had so many cases of police officers selling illegal substances, involved in driving and drinking accidents, possession of stolen property and so more and nobody says that the selection process should be reviewed and modified and frequent evaluations should be put in place. One guess is the recruiting a new officer is too costly. But what about the disadvantages of the scandals and all the other related issues?

I'm very curious to see what McKay wants to say about this guy who is going to spend the rest of his life, very likely behind the bars. No comment has been published in behalf of him yet)
