re: insiders roundtable Dec 16, 2011 - discussion of police brutality - Since the late 1960's an individuals use of drugs has been a declination issue for many kinds of employment - including candidates for police officer - even if the drug is marijuana. This tends to prevent otherwise good candidates from considering law enforcement as a career. It also results in a police force made up of the subset of our society who are generally less compassionate and more prone to a police-state mentality. We have been hiring in this manner for forty years. Is it any wonder that an us-versus-them mentality has emerged?
The socially acceptable case for legalization of marijuana was recently presented to law enforcement officials and unanimously rejected.
