I have advocated that for years.

I would only issue them handcuffs, a whistle and a radio. No nightsticks, no tasers, no pepper spray or the like.

As long as PDs go out of their way to hire stupid people and the courts have ruled that it is okay for PDs to reject intelligent job applicants based solely upon their intelligence, then we need to ensure that they do not have the ability to easily harm others.

Also, my best guess is that not one in a hundred LEOs has been properly trained regarding what is legal and what is not, therefore how can they be expected to "enforce the law?"

Think of it this way, you you hand a loaded Glock to a chimpanzee? I sure as hell wouldn't.
