Unfortunately there aren't "scads of impeccacble applicants" which is why so many police departments across the country operate undermanned. There are many background checks and vetting an officer has to go through, even up to the State level, so it seems like this guy may have flew under the radar. Stop judging all officers by the actions of a few. Bad Apples seem to find there way in every industry everywhere. Kudos North Topsail for taking a stand!
