Denver Police: “Nothing to see here. Move along.”

According to the Denver Post, “Out of 232 red flags on Denver officers, two led to formal remediation.

The Post found that “[o]nly twice in three years was a Denver police officer forced to undergo formal corrective intervention even though the department flagged officers 232 times for exceeding use-of-force and citizen-complaint thresholds.”

In other news, the sun sets in the west, the ocean is salty and Sandra Bullock is hot.

Government, at any level, can not be allowed to police itself anymore than a fraternity should be allowed to investigate itself on charges of underage drinking or the Lakers should be allowed to call their own fouls.

We readily see the absurdity of the last two. Somehow we overlook it on the first.
