    and there is no Federal data base for corrupt cops.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Male police were arrested at a far higher rate than female officers: Almost 95 percent of police crimes were committed by males.

    Stinson and his co-authors broke the cases of arrest into five broad categories:

    · sex-related police crime (1,475 arrest cases of 1,070 sworn officers)

    · alcohol-related police crime (1,405 arrest cases of 1,283 sworn officers)

    · drug-related police crime (739 arrest cases of 665 sworn officers)

    · violence-related police crime (3,328 arrest cases of 2,586 sworn officers

    · profit-motivated police crime (1,592 cases of 1,396 officers)

    Male police were arrested at a far higher rate than female officers: Almost 95 percent of police crimes were committed by males.

    Nearly 3/4 million officers in the US makes your data numbers look very minuscule

    Stinson and his co-authors should breakdown the Crime Wave in the Obama Administration!!!

    read the report. The only reason the inner cities are not cleaned up, is the corrupt cops in the inner cities.

    Ok so have a few problems with the report first off they do not weight or adjust for the difference between the amount of males hired versus the amount of females. Second no one but an idiot would assume that people that are hired as police suddenly become St. Peter.

    When you compare the number of bad cops to the number hired it is a relatively small number when you compare the number to non police you see higher instances of wrong doing.

    Nice that they took the time to do the study but what did they hope to prove? That police are humans? That not all police are angels? Well duh. Anytime you have people involved in anything there will be those that are bad actors. Do a study of clergy or congress or any other occupation that people are involved in and you will find the same thing.
