[IPAC-List] Does the day you take an oral exam matter?

I think that there may be some unique cynicism in law enforcement -
arising over years of listening to people try to talk themselves out of
traffic tickets and arresting clearly guilty people proclaiming

Experiencing so many lying to you so often would likely have an affect.

Kinda makes you wonder, though, doesn't it. Are the folks who suspect
unfair advantage IN SPITE of abundant evidence to the contrary the sort
that you want in law enforcement and public safety?

That's not unique to law enforcement, though. Somewhere out there, I
imagine, are people applying for positions as ombudsman or some other
similar advocacy role who also suspect other candidates of having an
unfair advantage for lord knows what reason. Or people applying for
positions that require quiet diplomacy and raise an adversarial stink
about every little administrative detail during assessment.

Sometimes, it's not how well you do on the test, but rather how you take
it, that indicates whether you're suitable for the job or not. (wink,
wink, nudge, nudge)
