Default What It's All About

Some things you read just strike you, and as for me, this article fits that bill. Our granson's other Grandpa is an LEO, a buddy of mine is a senior homicide bubba, and his wife is an LEO.

Exactly. The press loves to criticize and second guess.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Awesome read gorknoids.

I have seen officers coming out of the academy so fearful of doing something wrong where they might be sued or fired they neglect to fall back what they were taught in the academy and what the field training officers are trying teach them. One micro second of a hesitation might get them or a partner hurt or killed.

The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
