I actually joined with the intent of replying, but, ugh. I don't really need that much of an increase in my BP right now. Funny how the post says the MA is the only state that uses police as opposed to flag-carrying malcontents... since we all know thats not true.
I have a headache from reading the posts from those people who really have no clue about the reality of things. I felt compelled to sign up and post something of substance for the liberal whiners to read. After all this is the profession I chose, worked hard to get into, and take pride in; therefore, bashing all cops as lazy and milking the system during details does not cut it with me.
We can have our differences of opinon here on this site about law enforcement issues, protocol, etc. But when it comes down to it regardless of what agency we work for, the end goal is the generally the same, the safety and well being of the public. Its accomplished by means of a police department (state/local) or federal investigative agency by enforcement or corrections agency by keeping the scumbags where they belong, behind lock and key. And those interested in LE on here for supporting us.
Having said that, click on the Boston Harold link, sign up (it takes two seconds), and defend your position on that non-sense topic. And keep it educated and professional, not a bash session like it gets on here sometimes.
