Are Bad Cops Serial Killers?

The wires are abuzz with a story about a Forth Worth police officer who shot a woman in her own home.

What's striking to me about this is how quick it was. The officer shot and killed the woman in less than four seconds of seeing her, showing that he had, at least, rehearsed the shooting. I wonder how many other people he has shot. Is this officer a serial killer? Is the same psychology at work? Have we ended up creating hiding places for serial killers in our police forces, the way some Christian churches have in their priesthood. Or…?

Anyone who actually knows anything about the psychological issue, I would appreciate comments.
