Because one can pass a civil service test, or the right heighth requirements does not qualify one to be a police officer.We need to make sure these people are sound mentally and emotionally. And while we're on the subject of police officers, in my area I notice some in such poor physical shape (weight wise) that they couldn't catch me in a run-down. But at the same time, we have to admit that it is a high stress job and they need to learn how to cope with it.

Paysinger said the man had some slight abrasions and had complained of an injury to his nose, but was otherwise "fine."

"We will go through this with a fine-toothed comb, asking the questions the community wants to know," Los Angeles Inspector General Andre Birotte promised.

David Cunningham, the civilian head of the city's police department, added: "Assuming there is a finding of excessive force, there will be zero tolerance."

Then there are the PRE-JUDGERS who were neither present nor knowledgable of the facts:
DaveK - Same old LA cops!

Los Angeles Urban League President John Mack - "Unless some heads roll, we will return to some dark, bad, old days of the LAPD,"

Community activist Najee Ali - "We want this officer criminally prosecuted," Ali said. "We saw an unarmed man be beaten on camera who seemed to be cooperating and not resisting arrest so we're outraged and shocked ... It's very unfortunate that after the Rodney King beating we still have rogue officers within the LAPD."
