A reader sends this recruiting video from the police department in Stillwater, Okla., home of Oklahoma State University. As with the videos in my previous post on this topic, the video opens fast and harsh, with images of cops shooting, confronting and siccing police dogs on suspects. Even as it shifts into somewhat more placid images of the college campus and a discussion of the benefits of the job, there’s comparatively little emphasis on community service.
