1. According to that chart 93.4% of all policemen have a great record with ZERO complaints

 

but it takes the big ugly stats on top to find that stat below

What would be interesting is-
while good union workers like police officers are much maligned,
what are the comparitable stats in every other job?

Say Gun sellers with regard to staff and customers
Say Doctors with regard to staff and nurses
Say Lawyers with regard to staff and clients
Say Dentists
Say members of the Dallas Cowboys, both players and staff
Say Nascar racer stars with their staff and in after hours
Say Bartenders with regard to their staff and customers
Say people who work at Walmart
Say people who work at Target
Say people who work at Whole Foods
Say farmers
Say any other worker


it would take a chart like that to compare one against the others.

I bet NO group would get more than 93.4%.

Think about it.

93.4% of any staff having a spotless record, that to me is a very high number.
and most other jobs are not ones that the people working it have their life at stake every single minute of every single day.

This week was a reminder-weed out the few that are bad.And yes, there are bad, very bad.
But they are a very small minority.
But thank the others who are good union people doing a job most would not want to do.
