White police forces in America

by Regis Boff

The argument is always made that white police forces in America simply can’t find qualified black men and women to become police.
On the other hand, my impression and experience is that superbly trained black kids have been fighting and dying disproportionately in our wars since Vietnam.
And many leave the service and can’t find jobs.
Perhaps it might be a novel approach for the police in Ferguson and elsewhere to begin recruiting from this pool of the baddest motherfuckers on the planet instead of from their friends and relatives.
