If you wish to hasten the true and irretrievable death of our sovereign nation, you continue to do this to our local communities. If you don’t care and merely want to turn the United States into Mexico North — with its drug cartels and public shootings and beheadings (not unlike a death cult I can think of), keep to this path.
Police departments hiring immigrants as officers
by Alan Gomez
Law enforcement agencies struggling to fill their ranks or connect with their increasingly diverse populations are turning to immigrants to fill the gap.
Most agencies in the country require officers or deputies to be U.S. citizens, but some are allowing immigrants who are legally in the country to wear the badge. From Hawaii to Vermont, agencies are allowing green-card holders and legal immigrants with work permits to join their ranks.
In other words: illegal immigrants. Not even full US citizens. Green card holders. Work permitters.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he has no problems with green-card holders becoming police officers because they’ve made a long-term commitment to the country and have undergone extensive background checks. But he worries about the security risks associated with allowing any immigrant with a work permit to become an officer, especially considering that the Obama administration has given hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants work permits.
“We’re handing over a gun and a badge to somebody whose background we don’t really know a lot about,” Krikorian said.
As a cop, there isn’t much new under the sun that I haven’t already seen and, as we all know, life tends to be cyclical because we fail to learn from our past. I call that Historical Alzheimers.
We went through this problem in the early 90s, in terms of trying to find a sufficient number of qualified candidates to fill the cop ranks. And that became the operative phrase: “qualified candidates.” As a cop in the Sacramento Valley, working for a 2,000 + member department, I know that LAPD and LASO recruiters would drive north and attempt to poach recruits from our northern gene pool — strictly because they knew their southern gene pool was tainted with gangbangers and unqualified — ahem — scum, shall we say.
This kind of thinking roped LAPD into hiring, essentially, gangbangers. Hence: Rampanrt. Rampart was a failure of the LEO Liability Triumvirate:
1. Negligence in hiring;
2. Negligence in training, and
3. Negligence in retention
The same thing is beginning to occur all over again as LE agencies are in a bind for suitable candidates.
When I was hired, I took a test in our local huge community center which held over 300 seats. The written test was administered in three shifts, meaning that over 900 persons took the written test that day.
From that compilation, for my department, I came out in Rank One, as Number One. When I passed the academy that became my career ranking and seniority. I am extremely proud to have come out in Rank One and Number One as an academy recruit.
When I was hired, the question was “have you done any drugs, do you have any large debts and what are they?”
Today, the question is: “you haven’t done any illegal drugs within the past month, have you?”
With marijuana laws breaking down, the question is soon to be “you haven’t just smoked a splib prior to walking into this room just now, have you?”
Because, as a law enforcement agency: you are what you hire. You want stoners to enforce laws, hire stoners. You want illegals for enforce laws, hire illegals. But the Logical Extension becomes this: the community gets what it tolerates for LEO hiring.
Let me state the obvious: if you think that hiring “more blacks” or “more Mexicans” or “more crazed Albanian dwarves” will “solve” law enforcement problems in every community, you and others are sorely mistaken. It won’t.
Again, let me state the obvious: in my department, the best recruits and hirees are military veterans. They are young, squared-away, used to regimentation and sacrifice, and have a sense of duty few others possess. They will be the future of my department, at least this decade. And I have done and am doing my best to groom and shape them appropriately.
But let’s be clear. Demography is prophecy. If Mexicans and Muslims out-procreate the rest of the US population, that’s your US future: Mexicans and Muslims.
My, what an interesting culture clash that is going to be.
