How are police officers recruited, selected? Misuse of the MMPI. Post redux.

In response to the George Floyd murder/tragedy I’m bringing back the post below.  Nothing has changed.  From 2014:  https://pathwhisperer.info/2014/07/22/the-eric-garner-murder-stop-hiring-psycho-ward-cops/

The Eric Garner Murder — NYPD stop hiring psycho ward cops

Eric Garner, 43, father of six, grandfather of two.

Eric Garner was murdered by an illegal police chokehold during a questionable arrest.  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/staten-island-man-dies-puts-choke-hold-article-1.1871486http://nypost.com/2014/07/18/man-dies-after-suffering-heart-attack-during-arrest/, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2701074/A-cover-Internal-NYPD-report-incident-Staten-Island-dad-Eric-Garner-does-not-mention-chokehold-states-not-great-distress.html.

It turns out, per retired police Captain Ray Lewis, of Occupy fame, that police officers are selected to be high in aggression and low in sensitivity through the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) test.  This is turning the test on its head, it could be used to select very suitable and moral officers.  Used improperly as described it will select the emotionally walking wounded just raring to lash out on their psychological pain and anger, plus actual psychopaths.

How Cops Are Vetted For Aggression & Insensitivity | Interview with Capt. Ray Lewis

[Let me add a note about RT news.  There is no reason to believe any news item without proof or evidence.  Here the evidence is Capt. Ray Lewis’s statement of personal knowledge.  I have not seen it contradicted.  The US MSM is 2000 media outlets controlled by six like-minded corporations — that’s not a healthy or free press in any meaningful way.]

It is clear from incidents such as the Eric Garner murder, that this has been instituted here.  It is also shown by the police murder of disturbed individuals when neighbors or family call for police assistance.  High in violence and low in empathy, that would explain these occurrences.

It’s also evident from the following Village Voice article in which drunk rookie cops were allowed to run wild, beating up a cab driver for some perceived slight, even roughing up another police officer, and then remained unpunished.  I never understood how this was allowed until I saw Capt. Lewis’s statement on the MMPI.  A lengthy quotation follows:  [no longer, if interested please go to the original post above or the Village Voice article, itself, http://www.villagevoice.com/2010-10-13/news/nypd-cover-up-cabbie/].

What is going on here is very clear.  The elites have turned their backs on community policing and the idea of ‘serving and protecting citizens.’  The 1% have decided to dominate the 99%.  Thus they select emotionally damaged violent individuals as cops and then license their misbehavior.  As a civilized nation we seem to be going backwards.  In Brazil, the police even shoot homeless children, just as if they were dogs.
