    You could. But people didn't, because they didn't have this weird "muh freedom pew pew pew" mentality. And as soon as that shit started taking off, gun control became a necessity, because people realized having common thugs and untrained civilians running around with submachine guns was a fucking terrible idea.

    It's to my understanding that there is no law saying I can't have "firearms" or "non bladed projectile firing devices"

    In the 50s they were bad to black people and generally anyone not white too. It just went unreported by media. You didnt have social media to spread the word and everyone didn't have a camera in thier pockets to take stills and videos of it happening. Today the media isn't silent and cameras allow documentation to flow freely around them om social media even if they were. So now we know. Notice It still doesnt happen a ton to white people.

    I used to say something along these lines every time someone mentioned the "good ol' days", years of repeating myself have worn me down.

    Yeah... look at those two racist black police officers going after that black criminal. They must have targeted him because he is black... like they are.

    i'd guess the hair cuts come from a lot of vets going into the field. quality of recruits goes to pay... when you pay someone 20-40k a year starting pay to deal with they do its not going to attract the best people. bump that up to 80k min starting and you will start to see some quality folks and can be selective.

    Go back? You might want to take the time to read about what is still going on today...

    Should American police work harder to attract a more classy recruit?

    Should we enforce more hair in the police dress code?
    I’m assuming the shaved hair is when they’re in their boot camp thing. Just like the military, the men are required to shave their hair.

    Also, these pictures look like they just graduated from it and are currently in it, so their hair would still be shaved. Again, just like the military.

    While it is legal to own and purchase fully automatic machine guns in the US, it is not a realistic choice for the great majority of citizens. The cost is prohibitive based on the fact machine guns are not manufactured for sale to the public anymore and they can cost in the neighborhood of $30,000+ for those ones that are up for sale. Then there is the federal stamp which is required. And some conditions which the average citizen may not meet.

    And the overall crime rate in the US has declined, esp violent crimes. The media likes to paint the drama filled picture things are getting a lot worse. If you look at the rates we had back before say, the 1990's, the crime rate, esp violent crimes such as murder, have declined. The police overall, have been doing a great job.

    I guess you never been in a fight.

    The best way to attract recruits is not to demonize police for doing their job
    For some people, everything is a moral question. If you agree with them, you are virtuous. If you don't, you are a monster.
    If you want to debate me and prove me wrong I welcome the challenge. If you want to name call and use personal attacks, I will just ignore and report or move on, if I don't reply to you, you know which group you're in.
    Be respectful to me and I will be respectful to you, that I promise you.

    It is also extremely common for soldiers returning from overseas leaving the military to transfer to law enforcement.

    It’s not. It’s common for MPs and CID to leave the military and pursue a career in law enforcement.

    I find it horribly sad that your statement has far too much truth to it. There's too many radicals out there who believe if they're forced to give up their AK47s, modified to be fully automatic and their thousands of rounds of ammunition that the next day the government will become Big Brother and we'll all be slaves.

    Now I need to dig up stats.

    Everyone I know personally who has been in the military transitioned, at least for a time, into law enforcement and almost all of them have stated that it was a common practice. I also have a brother-in-law who was not in the military who was trying to get into law enforcement and he said it was difficult because they were primarily hiring veterans.

    The grunts, maybe - like the infantry guys. They don’t really learn any useful skills to use outside of the military so law enforcement may be the go-to option.

    RCMP while not perfect are held to much higher standard because they are federal and all have the same level of training, townies will never be as skilled as that.

    I'm having trouble finding anything with concrete numbers (probably because I've found a few stating this is not a tracked statistic, go figure) but here's an article from a police resource stating it is common.
    https://www.policemag.com/341085/mil...aw-enforcement

    As far as position I would say it depend on their role. I know infantry who became cops, marine officers who worked for federal law enforcement agencies, and so on. Position in law enforcement depended on position in the military, but it was still a transition to something under the law enforcement umbrella.
