    Exactly. It's been happening for far too long and people always treat these as isolated incidents, but if police forces throughout the country are having the same issue, then maybe its more endemic in the culture of law enforcement as it currently exists. That's something we really need to address.

    I involuntarily think, "Smooth move, Ferguson" every time the name is used, and then I chuckle to myself.

    I think it's more of an out of touch with reality classist joke about how only a moron would work at 7-11, despite the fact that plenty of intelligent, worldly, wise people are forced into menial jobs to get by, which you'd think would fall into his philosophy of manning up and working no matter what. So, just general, incoherent hate spewing with no real thought put behind it as usual. We didn't need Mexican prostitutes to despise you, Ron, you've given us plenty of fuel besides that.

    The problem with police is that a lot of the kinds of people who are attracted to the idea of a career wearing a uniform, a badge, and a gun -- and all the authority that goes along with it -- are assholes. "I would like a career where I get to handcuff people and throw them in jail" comes from (1) an overbearing hero fantasy and / or (2) narcissism with sado-masochistic overtones. Not saying all cops are like this, but that it's a profession that these types of people naturally find appealing.

    Police are necessary, though, so the way a free society is supposed to manage the risk of abuse of power is through training and accountability. The fact that we don't really have a credible story -- or much of a story at all, really -- from the police department speaks volumes.

    There's also a disturbing trend that I noticed in my hometown at least--almost all the kids from my school who went on to become cops were repeated juvenile felons who were just terrible at committing crimes. So if you follow the psychological postulate that people seek out careers that will correct their inherent faults (e.g. psychology is for people who want to know why they're crazy, teaching is for people who are stupid, etc.), then a lot of cops are cops because they were too dumb to get away with breaking the law so they want to get on the side of the law so they can be immune from prosecution.

    My Grandfather was a San Francisco Detective, my Father was a Fremont Detective and I served in the Coast Guard.

    It sucks that being a Police Officer has absolutely nothing to do with helping people anymore.

    My Father saw this shift taking shape, which was why he also taught Elementary and High School classes in the community he patrolled. I wanted to do tangible good and joined the Guard to save lives, protect the natural environment and for funsies, fuck with Cartels.

    This rampant militarization of those meant to protect and serve has led to a marked decrease in their training and ability to THINK beyond point and shoot. While on a Boarding, to even draw my weapon, the Guard has trained me to fluidly work my way through a threat matrix designed to utilize the least amount of force to gain compliance.

    So what are these pussy assess afraid of? Why are they resorting to lethal force with little to no provocation? I think you guys have hit on a number of reasons i.e. People playing soldier and not protector, mental deficients inclined toward violence and without the mental capacity for alternative approaches, downright racism, and fear without the training to work with and around the inevitable stress of placing your life on the line every day.

    Either way, this military police state is getting completely out of hand and I'm pretty pissed.

    I'm not sure. It's a pre-employment test so I'm guessing its a peepee test.

    Once the offer was given at my current job, I had 24 hours to do the drug test.

    They had me scheduled for Monday but I called and got them to reschedule it for Thursday. I smoked last Thursday night and found out about this Friday morning. Since then I've been pounding cranberry juice and swimming in the ocean. Every pot head around town has a different method and every time I research their advice online I find out that it's bogus.

    Last time I had to do this I diluted with water and peed mid stream. The tech at the lab seemed realized what I had done so she started asking me questions about my personal life and I guess I made a good impression.

    Anyways, exercise and not smoking weed is the only legitimate method I've heard to get it out of your system. Everyone has different advice on things you can eat: special detox drinks, cranberry pills, niacin.

    I guess all I'm asking is if naw one knows of a legitimate drink that will get the job done. Presumably, I would have to drink it the day of.

    Any other advice is welcome. I know I shouldn't stress this mind of thing but you know...

    I'm gana have such a session once this is over.

    Synthetic urine works. If you get caught they can call the cops. It isn't worth the risk in my opinion and I'm not a crook.

    Right, good point. It is also advisable to pee mid-stream into the cup.

    You know Jack, I was thinking the same thing. But then I thought hey, if it helps spread the word about the cause then who am I to criticize. But then I thought hey, I still have no idea what the cause even is. But then I thought that if I ever donated any money to anyone I would probably insist that my portrait be hung in the lobby of the building.
