I think overall the amount of whackers posting ridiculous topics on the forums are fewer than what it appears. Yeah, you see the occasional "light bar", "modified exhaust", "radar detector" and the dreadful..."I got a speeding ticket..." posts. Most I have seen under the "Ask-a-Cop" forum and the responses to these posts by LE and Non-LE, members of the board, seem to send a quick message and a dose of reality to get their head out their a**. Also, they do provide for some good comic relief you have to admit it... :L: Its also educational for those people on the board who want to "take the test" and pursue a career in law enforcement. If they are nieve to what they are in for they can see what type of morons they are going to be dealing with.
Out of the many forums and extensive topics on the website, there is a benefit to having points of view/perspectives of someone trying to get on the job or individuals in other professions with an interest in posting their comments. It provides for a valuable discussion in most cases. The odd topics/questions are bound to pop up under the ask-a-cop section, that is obvious, but I don't see that a knee jerk reaction restricting the site to LE only would be a good idea because of a few lightbar or speeding ticket questions. Just my two cents :2c:
