Just my two cents. Posters on cop threads fall into two broad categories. 1. People with an honest question. 2. People who insult, flame, and whine from the safety of a keyboard. I give whatever help I can to Nunber 1. Number 2 is like watching the monkeys at the zoo. Entertainment when I have nothing better to do. Even if they go to shoots and get togethers, they don't have the cajones to say this stuff to your face anyway. So why let it get under your skin?

Good point. I don't think any profession is above criticism, but it is hard not to take it personally. Cripes, I work in the Social Work field and am going to law school, so I have heard it all!

IBTL As a side note, I am in the process of managing a major software development project to overhaul an internal affairs and employee management system for a large PD. In all fairness, if any cop comes around acting like people have no reason to question LEOs actions, I have several hundred incidents which can be provided from this ONE department alone for just the past 90 days. If LEO actions are NOT scrutinized and questioned, this country would be in a civil disorder so quickly that it's frightening. Incidently, this PD is under Justice Department orders to get fixed or else.

What company would employ someone who discloses confidential information? As an employee of a computor tech. support company it is not your place to discuss the information within the agencies files. That would be the Columbus P.D., correct? Internal investigations are not public record until they are completed. This was the Clinton Justice Department right? The same one who brought us Ruby Ridge and Waco? The Brady Bill and The 94 AWB? The same Justice Department that says using a racial epitaph during the commission of a crime makes it a "hate crime"? The Janet Reno Justice Department?

One reason I enjoy this site is that it provides a forum for LEO's and the rest of us to talk, and if things get too heated, the worst that happens is a thread-lock. Certainly, some LEO's here do some ranting; but many of them seem level-headed, and their contributions to this site have changed my perspective.

No it's not Columbus and no it's not the Klinton JD - it's Mr. Ashcroft's ballgame. No, I would not provide anything that was not already in the public record. How stupid would you really take me for? DUH!!

What about bashing cop-bashers that bashed bashing cops that were bashed by bashers in the first place... Would this be allowed..?

Regardless, some would think it unethical to discuss your clients files in a public forum. Very unprofessional. When you take on such a contract there is an understanding of confidentiality. Try not to get caught up in the pack mentality that often prevails on this board when it comes to issues of law enforcement. You may end up saying something you regret.

Man this bashing is really getting old!!!!!I had't realized there were so many "people" who hated us. They sure are brave when they are behind their keyboards. Don't call us when Rufus is on top of your daughter in the basement, or your other kid wraps himself around a telephone pole because you let him drink at age 16, and I have to try to keep him alive until the squad gets there. I guess that line from Unlawful Entry ia appropriate. "Thats why cops stick together, nobody else can stand us." (or something like that).

IBTL [:D] As for County Mounties, well, some are nice, some are even good, and some seem to have started with an asshole at birth and just let it grow all out of control until they are not recognizeable as anythign but... [;D] Of course not all cops fall into these categories, around here, you can literally drive by the donut shop, and all you see is cop cars..... Talk about fulfilling stereotypes... (I actually like POs for the most part, just some get on my nerves)

The 4 Basic Food Groups for Police Officers: 1.Glazed 2.Jelly 3.Powdered 4.Chocolate Frosted How many cops does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one, but he is never around when you need him. The local sheriff was looking for a deputy, so Gomer - who was not exactly the sharpest nail in the bucket went in to try out for the job. "Okay," the sheriff drawled, "Gomer, what is 1 and 1?" "11" he replied. The sheriff thought to himself, "That's not what I meant, but he's right." "What two days of the week start with the letter 'T'?" "Today and tomorrow." He was again surprised that Gomer supplied a correct answer that he had never thought of himself. "Now Gomer, listen carefully: Who killed Abraham Lincoln?" Gomer looked a little surprised himself, then thought really hard for a minute and finally admitted, "I don't know." "Well, why don't you go home and work on that one for a while?" So, Gomer wandered over to the pool hall where his pals were waiting to hear the results of the interview. Gomer was exultant. "It went great! First day on the job and I'm already working on a murder case!" A policeman stops a lady and asks for her license. He says "Lady, it says here that you should be wearing glasses." The woman answered "Well, I have contacts." The policeman replied "I don't care who you know! You're getting a ticket!"

It's allowed as long as there is equal bashing by the bashers who bash cop-bashers for bashing cops and the cop-bashers who bash the non-cop- bashers. In this case all bashing would be negated by the equal number of bashing from both groups of bashers. In other words, the bash thread would simply not exist due to the negating of each bashers counter actions...bashing that is. It's really quite simple.[:D] Edited to test my theory - Test complete. Theory correct.

I was bashing someone on this board for bashing cops, then they started bashing me for bashing the cop bashers. Then some others came to my aid started bashing the cop bashers bashers bashers. In the end the cop bashers bashers bashers bashers won. It was cool. [:D]
