Former cop finds old habits hard to break

Former cop finds old habits hard to break

I could claim to be surprised, but I'd be lying. A former cop, 15 years with the Albuquerque Police Department, has been arrested for robbing a drug store. For the drugs, of course.

When you train people that it is OK for them to run around and force people to comply with their demands at gunpoint, and train them that it is OK to live off of stolen property, it will either attract this sort of character, or change ethically-ambivalent people into this type. It will give them a sense of entitlement and a callous attitude about the value of people and a disregard for the property of others. I'm just surprised it doesn't happen more. Or does it without being reported?
