The problem arises, however, when recruitment is based on color of skin rather than character content.
Such was made evident this week when the local Memphis, Tennessee media reported that Meekos Evans, a black police officer, was arrested for sexual assault.
According to news reports the on-duty police officer pulled over a woman motorist for ostensibly driving with a license plate that was not clearly visible.
Evans ordered the woman to move her vehicle behind an apartment complex, then ordered her to leave her three-year-old son in her vehicle and get in the back seat of his patrol car. Once in his total control and out of sight of other, the officer reportedly ordered the woman to expose her breasts. After fondling the woman, he let her go.
Although arrested, Evans was allowed to remain on police payroll in a non-enforcement capacity.
The assault reportedly occurred Februrary 11, 2014 and the arrest was reported April 17, 2014.
