Boy this website is nothing but a bunch of sparks!!! I thought I'd be joining a cool website with some contacts from back home just to shoot the breeze but instead theres people on here talkin about colors of other departments cruisers (who cares!!), uniform patches that "look cool", and departments bashing each other. My buddy who also works for the government made the best statement the other day when he said "Yeah they need to make a department just for sparks so they can just go out and do their thing" I think that'd be perfect, throw all you guys up in hickville NH or western MA somewhere where you can just turn on the blue lights in your car and admire its beauty! Some of you guys forget this is just a job like everything else.
