The ridiculousness takes another giant leap. Probably one green newbie was anxious to be the hero, shot, then everyone else followed in. A week without pay will learn them. Anyone else remember the thread about cop stories, them getting away with things because they are cops? Any young generation fence sitters, not knowing whether to stay in school or sell drugs for the gangs, just made up their minds.

Sadly, they'll more likely get two weeks WITH pay. A paid vacation, if you will. One of the few jobs in America where one gets so rewarded for such a massive screw up.

And I won't even try to say I'm not cop bashing. I'll say this, I know there are great ones out there, and great departments (I'm very fond of the Ruston, LA, PD, their officer S****** (censored for his privacy), and Mississippi's highway patrol is usually very professional and courteous), but the corruption in this particular department has been the butt of jokes and subject of conversation MY ENTIRE LIFE. Even Chris Rock's character in a movie once said "my mama tells people I'm a drug dealer" instead of admitting her son is a cop with the LAPD.

They've been due for a complete overhaul for well over 30 years.

This bit of news is terrifying. They just start shooting????? And it's a miracle with all those rounds no one was killed.

No. If you wait long enough, I'll get to Arizona. My sister lives near Tucson and one of these days I'll make it out that way.

And yeah, I'm on a lot of people's list......usually the s**t list.

That would be incredibly awesome. But we probably wouldn't be able to go shooting. And here's a warning......you crash my son's wedding and you'll be forced into being my date. I told my kids that my goal was to bring a date to their wedding. Doesn't look like it's going to happen. If you show up, you'll be forced into slavery as my date.

Decided there are some many exceptions, it makes little sense.
Just when I thought I had it all together........

But motor has two different definitions... Which I looked up and it included combustion engines. I was just always thought it's a combustion engine and an electric motor...

Generally if the cops are talking to me I did something wrong. Generally I don't have a problem with cops, with few exceptions.

Dude, you have ADD? I have a hard time understanding you sometimes. A little context would help.
