Let's not knee jerk on police hiring

Owen over at www.bootsandsabres.com picked up the theme I mentioned last week [http://ragdujour.blogspot.com/2007/10/crandon-knee-jerkers-are-just-bunch-of.html] in response to the mass murder in Crandon last week perpetrated by an off-duty sheriff's deputy:

I don't always agree with Owen but he's right on target here. There may be some value in these tests but it's not a guarantee and should never be mandated as part of an emotional knee-jerk.
