As I understand it, state by state determine if a felon can become a cop. In Memphis the city had a "second chance" program, whereby a convicted felon, who hasn't been caught and convicted a second time, can become a cop. I believe it is still going on. I was just wondering how many other states have the same program. I believe it is something along the lines of 20 or more. I for one don't believe they should be allowed to become cops, but I'm sure there will be a bunch of LE types that'll say, "If they are cops, they're great". I believe past behavior is the best way to predict future behavior. Any thoughts?
