  • I ask this question because one of my professors was a former cop who served on the force for like twenty years

    And its interesting cause this is the bay area which has some of the most racist cops in the state up there with the LAPD

    But i truthfully dont understand what it is to drive a black person to become a cop. Like it's no secret that most arrests are disproportionately skewed towards black people so what is it that drives you to want to get paid to arrest your own people en masse

  • One thing I could think of is if they have a history of previous relatives being in law enforcement or something similar

    Let's ask Rick Ross.

    Nah but, on a serious note, it actually makes tons of sense. Black cops will generally have more sympathy towards inner city Black people than White cops and can spark positive changes in law enforcement.

    Black cops will also be more likely to live in the same community while interacting with many of the same people on a daily basis.

    Black cops can also influence non-Black cops to back away from racial profiling methods and use better measures to handle crime.

    There's many reasons.

    we need more black cops
    f*** wrong with op

    why?

    the police system is still inherently racist all that would accomplish is setting more black people against each other

    you think a black cop would immediately become indoctrinated into racism? because that doesnt seem to make much sense

    As someone who wanted to be in Law Enforcement, Money.

    (Still might do it.. )

    Seriously, because it was looked at as an 鈥淗onorable鈥 position.

    Thinking we could cause some good, help people, actually Serve and Protect.

    Unfortunately, all of this is wishful thinking. But I do believe that people are motivated by these reasons nonetheless

    What causes a black man to join the military?

    Not really comparable

    You can join the military without being a combatant or having an effect on peoples lives.

    A lot of military mfs never leave the states
