Cops Needed. Even Clumsy Ones

In In The News, Personal on July 8, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

There is a shortage in the Czech police force, the Police Supreme Commissioner warned today. What are we gonna do? Well, we will make it easier for the people who want to become cops but fail at physical tests…we will make it easier for them.

Easier? A wannabe cop must do at least eighteen, yes, EIGHTEEN push-ups.  That is the absolute minimum in order to get four points. A wanna be cop must run a kilometer under 5:15.00. I could run a kilometer under 4:00 with a stolen big screen TV in my hands. So these are the pre-requisites the police commissioner wants to change so that LESS applicants fail.

I hope the next time I am robbed and a cop chases the robber it is gonna be a cop who did not need this favor. I would catch the crook myself but I can’t take the law in my own hands.
