Re: 79th Dropout Count - GO! Attention on Deck!

Look here's the bottom line (at least as I see it):

No matter how much it sucks, they can't hit you. At all. Ever. So what if those DI's are calling you names? Do you think the drunks you lock up are going to be polite and courteous to you? Do you really want to go home and tell all your friends and family that after months of training (I should hope) and YEARS of planning, that you just wimped out? Some of you went to college for four goddamn years to major in criminal justice, and now you are going to quit because someone yelled at you? They don't do that on CSI Miami? Or are you quitting because you don't like running. That's BS. If you have that little respect for yourself, then quit. Who cares? maybe you can be a local somewhere and tell the same story about your two weeks in the SPA for the rest of your life.

Pride=hang tough

No pride=quit

Best of luck.
:FT:

What's wrong with being a local? Are you saying troopers are that much tougher than locals. Not true although you may thinks so. I agreed with everything you were saying until the part about being a local.Doesn't matter what kind of unform you're wearing when you go up against a scumbag. I've never a scumbag yet who decided not to roll just because a guy had a state trooper uniform on. I had people quit in my academy also and thought "Why the hell did you bother going through all the B.S. of getting on the job just to quit after a week.

Nothing at all.

The local departments I have dealt with are some of the most dedicated, hardest working best Police Officers you could ask for...my home city Police in particular.

No, I am not saying that at all. My remarks were more intended for those who are now struggling in the MSP academy, that's all. If they made it that far, they probably could (if they haven't already) obtain a position within a local department. There are how many thousands of local officers in MA? I don't know, but there are 2,600 Troopers, and right now they are supposed to be focusing on what they want, which I assume is to be a Trooper. Please do not turn this thread into the old us vs. them arguement, That is not what I intended, and I apologize if you were offended. Lets get on with it.

Exactly, so you know what I meant.=D>

I think we're on the same page brother. My honest opinion is there should never be an "us vs. them" attitude. I'm happy to work with anyone who is squared away. I couldn't care less what badge they're wearing. State trooper, local or whatever else we can think of. My opinion is we're all on the same team and the less "us vs them" crap the better off we all are.

Ok I'm gonna throw in my 2 cents....A friend of mine quit( last class) because the D.I's were telling him to put on someone else's shitty drawers....Now I don't see the need to put on someone else's crappy underwear! What the hell does that have to do with being a good Trooper? It's a matter of hygeine, Who knows what you could catch! That's nasty! :up:

Nasty!! But still no reason to quit. Gonna deal with alot of nasty shitty pants people over a career. Granted I aint going to try on their underwear. I think the guy who owned the crappy undies might want to pack it in though. If he's shittin himself already whats he going to do when some real stress rears its head on the street.

What if you and your FTO are taken hostage and ordered to swap clothing? Can't be too prepared. :shifty:

Seriously though, don't believe everything you hear. It's nice to use something like this as an excuse after quitting. It sounds better than the old "It wasn't for me" and tends to gain more support for the quitter.

I don't believe it, but if this did happen, I'm sure it was an isolated incident and corrected.
