The major reasons criminal justice personnel get into trouble can be summed up in I word, us! People who work in the criminal justice profession are our own worse enemies and we bring a lot of problems on our selves. There can be many excuses to justify our problems, just like the thugs on the street but it comes back to, choices and personal accountability!
Some of the excuses I have heard over the years: everyone else does it, look at the money we make compared to them, what are they going to say there was more money than was turned in. I could go on and on. I have these few opinions as to why I do not engage in illegal activity: 1. I would not enjoy jail. 2. I do not want to embarass my family. 3. I have more integrity than to lower my values.
