The cops who have quit are the type that is not wanted by the public.

The police should stop recruiting racists, psychopaths, and low intelligence goons who can't get another job that pays as much as policing.

Police officers across the US have quit their jobs in recent days. Here is where there have been resignations

But as anger bubbles in parts of the country, some US police departments are facing their own crises and some officers have now opted to walk away.
In Minneapolis

In Minneapolis, at least seven police officers resigned from the department since protests sparked by Floyd's death in late May flooded the city's streets. More than half a dozen officers are also in the process of leaving, a city spokesperson told CNN.

The number of officers who are no longer with the department doesn't include the four men who were involved in Floyd's death and were fired, according to Casper Hill, the city's spokesperson, "There's nothing that leads us to believe that at this point the numbers are so great that it's going to be problematic," police spokesman John Elder told the Minneapolis Star Tribune of the departing officers, which include both patrol officers and detectives. ...

I guess ur talking about the Afro cops also, and many of these African American are in charge of white cops.

At least they have less problems in identifying who is black compared to here!

I did a little research and found that nationally police agencies experience a yearly turnover rate of about 11%. Minneapolis PD has 1100 officers, so you would expect that about 110 of them would leave the department every year, about 9 or 10 every month. So it is interesting that officers are leaving, but it's likely that most of them are leaving for routine reasons. One study I looked at showed that 50% of officers who leave their department are in their first 2 years of service. The next highest percentage were those in the 3-5 year range - 25%. Just based upon experience, I didn't find this surprising. One way or the other, many of these younger officers discover that they just aren't cut out for the job, and they leave.

Over the years I've met a number of people who have told me they were a police officer somewhere for X number of years, but then they moved on to something else. That's not uncommon. Those of us who have actually stayed in it for a full career and retired feel like survivors. There are a lot of land mines on the path to a full career, and you have to spot them and avoid them to make it to the end. It's not easy.

I think this officer said it best,

"Until these conditions and sentiments are rectified and addressed, we cannot safely, effectively and in good faith carry out duties in this capacity without putting ourselves and our families at this needless increased level of risk,".

He was actually implying, that our social outcry against all bigoted racists sociopaths in uniform, who use deadly force against unarmed citizens, somehow equates to needlessly putting himself and his family at risk. What about the real risk to the minority's and their families? He acts like there are only two options. Be allowed to do their jobs, and just ignore the few bad apples, or we all just quit. Here's a novel alternative, BETTER TRAINING to avoid the problem!! All cops are supposedly trained to discern between a real threat to life, and an imaginary threat to life. They should also know what a person's civil rights are. Especially their rights to life and privacy. We are not talking about any incidents, where a cops life(or his family's), was actually in any danger at all. We are not talking about accidents, or mistakes, or just going a bit to far. We are talking about having a deliberate homicidal intent, or an intent out of fear. I don't care what cops think of me, but I do care what cops do to me. And, they do think differently about Blacks, than they do about Whites.

My heart goes out to the victims killed while sleeping in their own home, jogging down the street, reaching for their driving licence, naked and refusing to stop, reading in your own home, or playing a video game in the living room. These are the people who deserve my pity and sympathy. Not this self-serving pity-manipulator, trying to ferment public guilt as a silly distraction. Why would you quit? How would public outrage affect the practices of good cops? Cops don't like it, when people start standing up to them. They never have. So, Good riddance to bad rubbish!!!

So, not all... :unsure:
of course not all. Most cops do a good job. Those that want to help the community usually don't shoot people in the back. They can think and problem solve on the run.

Those that are just there because they're on a power trip, well in any high anxiety situation theyre more likely to grab their gun first and think last.
