1. I don't know the numbers, but I do know that a few of the cops down here in Houston are

actually "wannabe vets." Guys who didn't make the cut for military duty, so they do the next best thing. It's relatively easy to become a constable, sheriff's deputy, PD officer or state trooper down here. (yeah, Houston has 4 different "types" of cop "keeping us 'safe'"

You know, tons of non-vets hanker for the power you describe...and tons of vets are kind and decent people who have tons of empathy. We can't feel sorry for poor kids from the inner city signing up as their only option and then kick them when they return.
