So, I'm in a 3 day class dealing with Sex Ass and FV Investigations.
We see a video in segments and after each segment we are asked, who gets arrested in a FV call. Me and another guy disagree with the rest of the class and the instructor on arresting the husband (we'd arrest the wife) and the instructor flips his lid -
"In all the years of teaching this class, you'll are the only 2 who told me they would arrest the wife. I hope you'll never get called out to a call with one of my family members".
Now seeing that I have 20years experience and I am instructor licensed, I found it comical. That will reflect poorly on his evaluation.
I just couldn't take the pablum puke anymore. We continue to enable the victimization of victims rather than empowering them and holding them accountable for their bad choices.
I'm no longer commissioned but needed the TCLEOSE hours to keep my license. I dunno how you patrol guys do it anymore. I really don't. It seems the rest of the class was willing to drink the Kool Aid and many were new officers with under 5 years experience and seemed not to have that "wrrior edge" mentality. It was kind of sad. Maybe I'm just one of those old geezers who can't adapt?
