our police. Hey, "Can't we all just get along"?
I belive it was Rodney King who gave us a greater understanding of what can happen if a fleeing felon drives drunk and high, leads the police on a high speed chase on highways and residential neighborhoods and then resists arrest to the point where even a taser has no effect.

This sums it up pretty well:

Maybe if you have no idea what ad hominem actually means.

Since the NCPD qualification is primarily test scores why so many NYPD?
He resigned and was not fired. After 5 years, he is vested. Yes, he will get his pension, although of course it's not going to be Lotto sized since he left after only 6 years of tenure. Maybe he can get another NYS job and get another chance to dip his beak. The politicians make sure that the law in NYS is that if a retiree commits a crime, even against his own employer (like the Roslyn Superintendant), the retiree still gets the pension. I suppose it is in the politicians' best personal interests to keep it that way. Mannerz will get his pension. The cop who drew his gun on the bartender will get his too. Tassone (Roslyn superintendant) got his $170K pension while he was sitting in jail for stealing seven figures from the Roslyn School District, for crying out loud. Unless NYS changes the law, they will all get their pensions.

LOL. I'm surprised that comment you are addressing even got posted. Nobody's going to answer you that one. They will just swear on their mother that "the hiring strictly goes by the number the candidate gets on the testing!" "No nepotism and no favoritism is even possible!" is what they will say (when they're not claiming over 1/2 hired were former NYPD). Nothing but doubletalk in support of a system that is completely unfair to the taxpayers who actually fund it and paying Lotto style winnings to the very few.

As I said, problems occur more frequently and to a greater extent in the NYPD, due largely to the quality of candidates that are hired. One of the many reasons so many NYPD cops want to come to Nassau.
