nwo -"The STOP team is now full time since last month. The STOP team is training with NEMLEC they have to do something. They don't get called for call outs in Eastern Massachusetts anymore.They both worked the presidents parade today in Washington. Who payed for that. Thats a waste of my tax money as a citzen of Massachusetts. Sorry I guess you didn't get that memo from SPAM."

In light of the large amount of following the "Nastygram from SPAM" topic had and as a member of the STOP team I felt it necessary to set these rumors/lies straight.

The STOP team is not full time. We are willing and able if the time comes, but we are not full time right now or have we ever been. Not even "since last month".

We do have call outs in the eastern part of the state. Unlike some towns/teams/individuals we don't call the media to "cover" our missions. Often our missions get second page, second section, below the fold coverage with a mention that the State Police "assisted" in the call. We are not the glory hounds some people like to portray we are.

The STOP team has never trained with NEMLEC. There have been meetings to see if this is a viable option and at what capacity the two teams would work together.

None of the STOP team members went to DC. At training this week all members were present and accounted for with none on VAC/sick time/Personal time/Comp time, etc. in Washington DC. In fact, we were briefed on Chinese/Iraqi threat and were told to stand by and not travel too far because of the threat here in MASSACHUSETTS!

So, NWO, I don't know who or where you get your information from but please, please check the facts and validity of what you put out here in the public forum. This falls in line with why SPAM sent out the letter. Many people in the past have made and continue to make false statements regarding the services provided by the MSP. Some are slanted, misleading, and outright lies. SPAM, in the interest of its membership, felt it necessary to address some of these and enlighten those who did not know the truth. Unsubstantiated rumors that are fueled by the ignorant drive a wedge between the brotherhood/sisterhood we know as police officers. CHECK YOUR FACTS!

=D> Well said.

As I said before my support or opinion doesnt matter and wont make LEC's go away. But I support what SPAM is trying to do.

I think VOR nailed it right on the head when he said the Big Mac and drive thru comment. If only that was put into the letter, it might bring the issue down to a level more politicos can understand ,as to what SPAM is trying to say. :wink:

To thefuzz357 I stand corrected. I got this info from what I thought was a good source. I take the SPAM letter as a compliment. It shows that SPAM is afraid of the LEC. Here is another rumor why did the Massachusetts State police try to cite a Norwood Motorcycle cop for marked lanes. When he crashed on the VFW escorting Kraft into Boston. Until Boston Police Comish put them in there place. Hint, he was part of the LEC.
