I've seen many clips of England cops get their ass kicked. Just saying.
@Jennifer_18 and a million more where they are not getting their asses kicked too. the fact is the uk has its own issues with police funding cuts and the fact the force has been cut in half over ten years coupled with a cps that only sends people to court if its very likely they will be convicted but your question was about equality in the ranks and thats a problem we dont have here

The title suggest there is a gender bias when hiring or a lack of women attempting to get into law enforcement. With all do respect sir, what your comment suggest is that women can't do the job and that the bar needs to be lower for them to get in. Your comment was very bias. Take your own advice: "The stupidest thing to do is hire people based on their sex, of the color of their skin, or their race, or what school they attended."
In several instances, the bar needs to be set lower for women to get in. Specifically, the Navy Seals, and the Army Rangers. Although many women have tried, they can't meet the standards. Hell, most guys can't!My point was... you don't go hiring people just to make your business culture look like the community. That's stupid and foolish. The Dayton Police did just that, a few years ago, specifically to hire more minority individuals. In order to get them, they literally allowed a lower score for minority individuals to "qualify" as Police Academy candidates. That's a FACT.Additionally, the test scores for HS graduation were also lowered in at least Tennessee in the 70's so minority individuals would have a higher graduation rate. Therefore, the state would be able to collect Federal funds for the states education system.Lowering standards, just to hire more women, minorities, or ANYONE doesn't help the company, business, or organization that needs the talent. That's one reason firefighters have a difficult time getting women. They (women), in general, cannot meet the rigorous physical standards necessary for the job.You don't change the standards just to get the gender or racial makeup to reflect the community as a group. Depending on the job, many women simply may not be interested, therefore they don't apply for it!
You're a simp, and I betting you support BLM which doesn't support the black community at all.
The bar IS set lower for them, and the Democrats support affirmative action, believing that black people are dumb, can't compete with white people. The Democrats are the real racists.
@modelUN242 - Are you referring to my comments? I do NOT support BLM. My point was that hiring women or minorities, just so your business appears socially and racially balanced is a stupid way to conduct business. A company, a Government organization, or any other group needs to retain their standards and force the future employees to meet that. Dropping your standards, means you also suffer lower productivity and quality, not to mention the poorer quality workforce afterwards too.As for Democrats, I totally agree with your assessment on them!
No it's for @EABsTUQ sorry, yes I totally agree with you on that, poor business practice indeed, but it's all PR I'm sure, lol, they would lose money if that was the basis.
The question simply states would LWA be better off. I did not input my own bias into the question or description. If you wish to interpret it through your lens though that is also fine. I think everyone is so emotional that they don't even understand the question. The answer to world peace though is integration aka to merge. But we still haven't done that even inside border lines. Alright I'm ranting now.
What does a person’s race have to do with their skills and experience?
@Jack9949 Did I say unskilled people? I said diverse. 🙄
Why do we need diversity? It shouldn’t matter what someone’s race is if they are fit for the job
@Jack9949 you are a special kind of moron honey. I said more diversity in any agency is a good thing. I never said hire people based on race even if they don’t know what they’re doing. I also didn’t say that better qualified people should be overlooked to have more diversity. All I said was that more diversity is a good thing. Go find something else to nitpick at.
Why is more diversity a good thing? Race doesn’t mean anything
But your implying it does and that it can somehow make situations better
@Jack9949 It’s a good thing in general. When you’re closer to people that are different, you are less likely to be biased. Some people are naturally less biased than others and that’s great, but that’s not how everyone is. It can be helpful and I’m speaking from first hand experience, hence why I began my answer with “I think.”
This is an example of how pathetically ineffective women are as front-line police.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EWu-9uYKlw&t=18s
I didn't think of that until you mentioned it but in the US I suspect that the number of women who need to be searched is MUCH smaller than the number of guys who need to be searched.
Yep, and some of them were crying and had their mascara running.
They kind of are but i think the real issue is the training or lack there of. It doesn't teach them well enough in my opinion and it doesn't weed out the bad from the good which is most important in my opinion
Cops protect their own. Remember that even through corruption
