    Firing at AAC

    Apparently a few individuals were released recently over a situation that should have never happened.

    They/he/she (I don't know exactly how many were involved) were taking pictures of the actual test questions at the Academy and were caught. This came word of mouth, but verifiable in my opinion.

    That's pretty dumb. I understand we want to help, but if you had to work hard to actually learn the information and have a better understanding, why wouldn't you want those that follow to have to earn their way in as well? Not to mention, it's just not worth it.

    I put this on here just as something to think about when going to the Academy. I don't know how many times this has happened in the past or if this was already mentioned on here. The cell phone(s) was shipped to Texas somewhere to be scraped of information, just in case there were some hidden files.

    Don't screw up a good thing because you think you're helping out your buddy. In all honesty, you're hurting them and the agency by cheating. I feel bad for what happened, but the action taken was appropriate. If they can't genuinely learn the information, they really don't belong.

    This was just a word to the wise (or idiots as I like to say, because if you were wise, this would already be known info!).

    A guy at work was talking about this yesterday. His brother is down at the Academy now and told him about it. Sounds like as many as 9 people may have been fired. Apparently since the grading has become more difficult more people have felt the need to cheat.

    Good. Don't want to work next to someone one day with no ethical compass. 9 new spots open in the next panel for kids who actually want this job.

    Behind the times, guru... you gotta get on the rumor train earlier than that. C'mon now, this is StuckMic.

    There was also a harassment-related firing around the same time, so that may be why you were hearing a higher number.
    Pan pan?

    Cheated on the easiest test too. A ckt? Seriously. That test was cake. Everyone averages about a 97 on it. And it's only worth I think 4 or 5 percent.

    So, these people risked their careers and lost them for someone else??! I'm curious on how they were caught.

    Very interesting...

    It was apparently all girls, and one of the girls boyfriends who got fired. That group of girls didnt like each other, so one wrote a letter to the managers at okc about the cheating,then the girl who wrote the letter got fired because the other 2 girls filed a sexual harassment complaint on her. Haha bitches be bitches!! Oh and the reason the guy got fired is because his gf used his phone to take the pics of the test!! Hahahahhaha id have to slap a hoe.

    "Don't be stupid at the Academy" still applies.
