Cops Are Now Officially the Fattest Employees in America, Study Shows

f1

WASHINGTON, DC — A new study conducted by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine reveals that law enforcement is officially the most obese profession in the United States.

Though Americans tend to react to fatness with laughter and mockery, morbid obesity is actually a serious health condition.

The extremely large amount of body fat on obese males stores toxins that could cause damage to one’s overall health and mental well being.





Inordinate amounts of body fat on obese males has been shown to correlate with estrogen levels above medically normal ranges, according to the latest studies.

This hormonal imbalance doesn’t only lead to undesirable body traits such as “man boobs,” but can also lead to more serious problems, such as depression, poor judgment, and irrational mood swings.

Male officers who are obese may suffer from all of these conditions, which causes concern, given that they are allowed to carry guns and restrain people at will.

If that isn’t alarming enough, 1 in 3 males are now unable to see their own penises due to having too much body fat, according to recent studies. 

Is it possible that many cops are therefore unable to see their own penises? Could this be causing them to take out their frustration on the general population?

Alongside firefighters and security officers, almost 41% of cops are obese, the recent study shows.

Government social workers and church clergy are placed as the second most obese profession, with about 35% being fat.

Professions that rank among the thinnest are economists, scientists, and psychologists, with only 14% having obesity.

Should an officer who is in such condition be walking around with a loaded firearm and permission to initiate violence on citizens.

One example is a video which shows a very large officer shooting a handcuffed girl with his taser gun. The young girl posed no threat to the officer, but simply wanted him to leave her alone, and tried to get away from him.

If the officer were able to sprint well, some surmise that he could have simply caught the girl instead of shooting her, after which she became vegetative and died. The raw video can be viewed below:

    Idk about this article…lets just stick to reporting examples of violence and disregard for the law by police. This made me quite uncomfortable and found it to be an absolutely unescessary point to make. And categorizing it into the ‘incompetence’ section certainly adds insult to injury.

    • hash

      It’s absolutely not unnecessary, as physical fitness is one of the prerequisites for their job. The more out of shape an officer is the sooner he has to resort to his taser or firearm. Also, it’s absolutely incompetence if an officer can’t chase down an average suspect. Have you ever noticed on “Cops” how the camera man is always able to keep up despite carrying a huge camera?

      • Hulk Logan

        There are clearly reasons why being obese could be a detriment to being a police officer, but there are unnecessary and unprofessional implications being made in this article that have no place in the discussion on the police institution. Police as an institution is inherently flawed and our priorities should be having a discourse on this flawed institution as opposed to talking about how fat cops are a little worse than all the other bad cops. (This is of course giving this article the benefit of the doubt and ignoring the unnecessary implications this article makes).

        Show me an example of a good cop (under the guidelines made in a previous article posted on this site) and then I’ll sit and have a discussion about the nuances that makes one cop worse than the other and the changes that have to be made on individual levels. Until then, let’s come at this with the understanding that there are no good cops and police reform on individual level serves no purpose other than to ostracize groups of people that share qualities with these individual police officers. This type of journalism is all to common in all forms of news media, this one not exempt.

        • George

          Cops should not be fat. Period. Just like midgets can’t play basketball, it’s just not meant to be. How many people have died because cops aren’t As physically able as they should be? There’s no way to ever find a figure like that but I bet it’s an unsettling number that could have easily been avoided if they would hire people in proper physical condition to do their job. I know for a fact you cannot see your own penis. I bet that’s what set you off lol

      This is directly related to the question are they physically fit enough to carry out the duties and responsibilities of an officer of the law. I think most if not all law enforcement agencies require physical fitness testing on a regular basis supposedly. Obviously whatever method is being used is NOT working. So you can take this how you want but sometimes as you go through life you will come across shit that may make you uncomfortable. A huge problem with society these days, in my personal opinion, peoples inability to deal with having your feelings hurt or deal with being “uncomfortable”. Small freedoms are being sacrificed daily to make sure you are comfortable. I am of the opinion that experiencing life outside your comfort zone once in a while is a healthy, normal part of it. The ability to take or leave criticism, good or bad, or to be able to be in uncomfortable situations and still function is necessary. Done ranting.

    There’s a real uncomfortable level of sexist assumptions here. Never mind that police are far crueler to people than women with PMS (and we won’t even talk about all the women who *don’t* suffer from PMS or the way it gets used to invalidate everything a woman says!). The science in hormones is just wrong. What’s high during PMS is progesterone, and both estrogen snd progesterone drop sharply during the most volatle days.

    The hormones most associated with violence are androgens, as in ‘roid rage. You want to do a study on police violence and hormones, maybe we should start drug testing cops for anabolic steroid abuse. That might find something interesting.

      I don’t recall ever witnessing something a woman said being invalidated by PMS. I’ve heard women say downright silly things and be given a pass by blaming PMS, but I don’t think that’s what you meant. It sounds like maybe there are some people in your life who don’t belong there.

      • GracieW

        Well because you’ve never heard it-it must never have happened! Sorry but as a woman I can’t begin to count how many times something I’ve said has been discounted as “PMS”. For instance, at work if I disagreed with a plan of action by a male co-worker it was blamed on PMS.

      I guess things are only allowed to have 1 problem plaguing them at a time. Getting your car fixed must be a breeze.

      Let’s disregard how much of a mouth breathing troglodyte you must be to ever think you have the facilities to come up with a snarky comment that also makes a logical point.

      There’s a finite number of innocent people that the police can beat, rape, and/or kill before We The People get fed up. For every 1 cop, there are easily at least 20 able-bodied, real men in this country. I would hope the police learn to tread lightly considering how vastly outnumbered they are.

    • Miles Coleman

      Well by the the facts stated in this article. You and your buddies seem to be more of a joke than any of us “cop haters”……Being obese on a job that requires physical exertion, can only lead to your fat asses killing more…I mean why would a fat lazy blob bother chasing and apprehending a suspect (and risk heart failure)…when he could just shoot the suspect. This to me is a serious issue!

  • Guest

    He was stating that people keep giving different reasons for the same problem and each time it must be true. Is like a sadder form of saying whether eggs are healthy for you or not. And let us look at any of the resources they got this from. Oh wait…..It’s one magazine declaring it got its’ information from another magazine source, who pulled it out of a hat. These articles are just so biased and lack any use to actually help anyone opinion of matters. And yet, we sit here and have the “Suck the shit right out of my ass” fellows and then the ones that are there to only argue an opinion that is as poorly sourced as this article.
    And before I get harassed for loving or hating police, I’m doing the proper thing and keeping them out of my life, whether I like or dislike them. And the simple point that you cannot generalize races, but we have the right to generalize a group of people that work in an occupation?? Sure, we can go about and think logically that a certain job normally takes a mindset that better fits the position, but you cannot go around and blatantly state that all police officers are bad. And then we go around as a mass and start harassing and perpetuating police brutality, by forcing our government to be on the defensive. We could be a lot smarter than this and make the difference necessary, but it seems these are the things we prefer. So who is really to blame?
    The fact is, everything they know about the emotional duress from obesity is overly speculative.
    I just want to start hearing some good fucking sources actually explain a problem for what it is, without this backwards biased fucking arguments we all seem to love to blabber on about. That way when I get to hear what people have to say, it will more often be actually worth listening to.

    “According to reports, many obese people are often unable to thoroughly clean their own bodies after defecating, and obese males in particular are often unable to see their own genitals.

      I find the original quote in question to be a valid point. You wouldn’t entrust a senile senior citizen, or a cracked-out homeless person, with that level of responsibility/authority/security would you? You wouldn’t entrust someone who didn’t know how to swim with life-guard duty. I personally think it’s perfectly reasonable to suggest that someone who can hardly wipe their own ass should NOT be in a position of power. If these Police Departments want to keep acting like they’re in the military, then they should train like they’re in the military. Keepin’ it 100% legit and pristine at all times is a matter of self-respect, and you can’t respect others if you don’t first have self-respect.

    I must say I have never seen an obese officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, though I have in other Canadian forces.

    The relatively good reputation of that service (until recently under Harper) may be attributed in part to high physical fitness standards, which tend also to root out the mentally unfit.

    Remember, OBESITY IS MENTAL ILLNESS. You have to LACK CONTROL ABOUT WHAT TO PUT IN YOUR MOUTH to get obese, no matter what your metabolism challenges may be. We do NOT WANT MENTALLY ILL COPS. It’s just that simple.

    Regardless of any questions of penis visibility, obese cops are more likely to have heart attacks than healthy cops.

    I don’t know- tackling her may have had the same result. The simple reality is, she brought this on her self. You just cannot up and run out of a police station when you have been arrested. She immediately went from a misdemeanor bench warrant to felony evasion. Fine line there in the use of force- but what if she had run out into traffic and been hit and killed- the police would be liable for not preventing her. Or she ran out into traffic and caused an accident- again the police would be liable.

    In this instance, she is 100% at fault.

    This article is bullshit. Fat shaming cops and poor journalism (maybe can’t see their dicks? Flimsy hormone science? Really?) does absolutely nothing for the overall movement of reforming the police to not be carte blanche murderers who never do time for their crimes against the public.

    Should the police have stricter physical requirements, along the lines of the military? Absolutely. Perhaps some QUALITY journalism instead of this trash would spark that change.

    And for the trolls: nope, I’m thin. But you don’t have to be fat to know that fat shaming is wrong, it’s called empathy.
