The Washington Post has another horror story on the PG Police. The Prince George’s County Police Academy apparently had a system of organized cheating for trainees that was so obvious that even the auditors noticed. (When an entire class gets perfect grades on a whole slew of tests, that’s a clue). When some police officers tried to bring the abuse to the police brass’s attention, they got penalized for insubordination.
Here’s my favorite comment from the Post website:

How many cops does it take to throw a securely handcuffed perp down a flight of steps?
C) None, he tripped.
(hint: Not A or B)
UPDATE: And here’s an update from the PG Police Chief: “”People are attempting to manipulate and exaggerate things,” he said. “Everybody does not have the entire story.”
+++ And anyone who believes that the PG Police will ever divulge “the entire story” – well, tell it to the guy who miraculously committed suicide when the weight of his guilt snapped his neck a year or two in the PG jail.
