I'm not sure why this keeps going over your head.
You indirectly quoted a partial segment from one of the linked articles which I provided. In your partial quote, you purposely left out data (the questions) as it applied to your argument (the test). How you can have the audacity to say that I have "thoroughly lost in the battle of substance in posts
" not only shows your immaturity, arrogance and ignorance, but additionally your total lack of objectivity.
If you feel that I have twisted your words, that is entirely your right to do so; however, I have only taken what you have written in replies, and responded in a factual manner. It is obvious that you tend to lose focus on facts, or at least only choose fragments of facts to recognize. This isn't surprising, as many in your occupation have been indoctrinated to be callous and unrelenting when challenged with substantive information.
Rather than spending time pissing back and forth, I suggest that you should read the other articles which were previously posted. Perhaps you could gain a much needed insight into the history of corruption in Law Enforcement by reading the testimony of Alan M. Dershowitz
before the House of Representative Judiciary Committee (1998), and the factual findings of the 1994 Mollen Commission
(Hon. Milton Mollen, chairman). While these were the two additional links I posted originally, there are others that "you" will presumably find to be atrocious, yet they are accurate and credible. Controlling the Cops; Accomplices to Perjury:
Alan M. Dershowitz

As I read about the disbelief expressed by some prosecutors at the Mollen Commission's recent assertion that police perjury is "widespread" in New York City, I thought of Claude Rains's classic response, in "Casablanca," on being told there was gambling in Rick's place: "I'm shocked -- shocked!"
For anyone who has practiced criminal law in the state or Federal courts, the disclosures about rampant police perjury cannot possibly come as a surprise. "Testilying" -- as the police call it -- has long been an open secret among prosecutors, defense lawyers and judges.
Irving Younger, a onetime New York City Criminal Court judge, described police testimony in search and seizure cases this way: "When one . . . looks at a series of cases, [ it ] then becomes apparent that policemen are committing perjury at least in some of them, and perhaps in nearly all of them."
Judge Younger concluded that the solution to this pervasive problem was "prosecutors' work," since the "courts can only deplore" while the prosecutors can refuse to put perjuring policemen on the witness stand and can prosecute them if they lie.
I have seen trial judges pretend to believe officers whose testimony is contradicted by common sense, documentary evidence and even unambiguous tape recordings. And I have seen appellate judges close their eyes to such patently false findings of fact. Judicial acceptance of obviously false testimony sends a subtle yet powerful message of approval, if not encouragement, to perjurers. continued...
LAW ENFORCEMENT: Has the Drug War Created an Officer Liars' Club?

[quote]STANFORD — Are the nation's police officers a bunch of congenital liars?
Not many people took defense attorney Alan M. Dershowitz seriously when he charged that Los Angeles cops are taught to lie at the birth of their careers at the Police Academy. But as someone who spent 35 years wearing a police uniform, I've come to believe that hundreds of thousands of law-enforcement officers commit felony perjury every year testifying about drug arrests.
The eroding integrity of law-enforcement officers and the resulting decrease in public credibility are costs of the drug war yet to be acknowledged. Within the last few years, police departments in Los Angeles, Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Denver, New York and in other large cities have suffered scandals involving police personnel lying under oath about drug evidence. Some officers in the New York City police and New York State police departments were convicted of falsifying drug evidence. continued...
