Following the vicious beating of Frank Jude Jr., allegedly by a group of off-duty police officers, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel launched its investigation of the screening processes for hiring police officers. In most departments, officers are required to undergo psychological screening before joining the force. What reporters found was that, in many cases (including the case of the officers accused of beating Frank Jude Jr.), officers do not undergo any psychological screening and don't even go through an oral interview before joining the force.
