THE HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT ALMOST HAD A FIRST!

THE TRANSSEXUAL AT THE ACADEMY!

The Houston Police Department would’ve made history if a recruit wouldn’t have been eliminated from the police academy just last month. The Insite has learned and confirmed with HPD brass the department had it’s first transsexual recruit enter the police academy. That candidate was ruled out after part of the entry process. The Insite knows the specific reason but I’m not releasing that information in fear of identifying the recruit. But officials with HPD said they were going to give the recruit a fair chance at making it in the department. In fact, I called the department to do a story about it but was told they wanted to wait until the recruit was accepted and graduated. However, as a result of being released from the academy that story won’t happen. This is as much as we’re getting on the subject. Many of the officers the Insite spoke with had mixed feelings about the recruit. Some were accepting, others didn’t care, while many use the “F” word describing the potential HPD cop. I guess we will never know. But that leads to a question: Should transsexuals or transvestites be allowed into the academy? I already know about the male cop turned female who was already on the force, but what about allowing them into the academy? The Insite would like to hear your opinion!
