So your assumption is that I am out there killing all the bad guys? hahahahahahahahah Awesome. You truly believe that I would risk everything I have.....everything I have worked for.....my family, my kids, my house, my freedom, to deal out "justice" for some shitbag turd? This is how absurd your world is. This is how absurd all of this anti police stuff is. You morons believe that we actually would do that. Unreal. We don't get these jobs overnight. This isn't fucking McDonalds. The sky is some sort of magical wonderful for people like you isn't it?

Unfortunately, a few apples are spoiling the whole bunch and making the news on a daily basis. See: Freddy Gray, Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Walter Scott, etc. Right or wrong, there's a perception out there that the police are dispensing justice on the street.

You can cast that net far and wide for anything. It is foolish to even consider. (looks at how this conversation started......shit)

Does me no good to post anything. Ill go back to observing "head in the sand" mentality.

I'm sad I missed the actual response and that the rest of this got so ugly. I hope you don't feel like people won't give your opinion a fair shake, I was just in a meeting otherwise I would've read and responded

eh, typical BN stuff. One word gets focused on, yelling, name calling, hurt feelings, then the wheels fall off. No biggie! I somehow got turned into a hooded executioner. Think I'll go start a new game of Skyrim.

Good lord.....why do you think people don't commit crimes? BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY WILL BE PUNSIHED IF CAUGHT! So why do people commit crimes over and over? BECAUSE IN THE SMALL CHANCE THEY ARE CAUGHT THEY KNOW THERE ARE SMALL TO NO CONSEQUENCES!

This is actually a very controversial opinion, with there being more evidence to the contrary. Using prison, or even death, as a deterrent doesn't seem to be very effective and is a particularly nihilistic view of humanity. It's akin to saying Jesus is the only reason we don't kill each other, and therefore we all need religion.

well, I once did hear "Yall motherf****rs need jesus", but that was when I had cable....

What the hell else do you think that word means? You said you wish you could publicly execute a population of criminals that has a lower occurrence of repeat offense than most other crimes.

I don't deal in justice. I deal in enforcement.
Which is EXACTLY why it's so scary to hear the detachment between what you "wish" you could do compared to what you were actually sent out there to do.

In your years of experience as an officer did you ever see evidence that "punishment" was a significant deterrent to the occurrence of a crime? These people need help, they need to be identified earlier through more effective mental health programs and screening. Killing them all "after the fact" does absolutely nothing to stop the next child from getting molested by the next person.

Wow. You see, the reality is that the states won't ever spend money on that stuff. So good luck with that. Minnesota is currently discussing letting the majority of sex offenders out.....I would love to sign people like you up to go talk to the parents of the next kid molested. With your magic wand to spend money to fix these people.

It's too bad that you didn't even actually READ through that article you just linked Bats, because it completely disproves your entire "they can't be fixed" argument. It literally says that sexual predators have a lower recidivism rate than general crime stats... but you just want to murder them anyway.

Wish we could publicly execute CP users and molesters.
Not sure why it matters what the person does for a job

I'm pretty sure the problem is that he did read the words you said. You seem to be OK with just glossing right over the fact that you just advocated for public execution instead of punishment and rehabilitation and are woefully ignorant of the fact that when someone with a police background says things like that... it worries the rest of us. It makes me glad that you are Retired because you have some horrific ideas about dispensation of justice.

Because I said wish? Dispensation of Justice? ugh. Why do I bother......I am not sure you understand my job. I don't deal in justice. I deal in enforcement. Judges deal with this thing you call "justice". I just have the tedious job of bringing them before a judge that usually lets them out within 36 hours, then pick up the pieces again and again.

Cherry pick the article all you want. There are several quoted items in there that says the opposite.

Sex offenders in Illinois do not appear to commit future offenses, in general, at a higher rate than do other offenders. However they may have higher levels of recidivism for their crimes than other types of offenders exhibit for their particular offenses.

Article is all over the place - but there is plenty of ammo for either side.....notice the longer they do their study, the HIGHER the rate. In fact, if you just read the summary, my point is supported. Don't even know why I bother. Not sure you even read the article.

I sometimes have lapses in memory and for some reason think people here are nice, then remember that because of my job I am hated. I'll just go back to reading and observing the nonsense.

The amount of craziness surrounding your service in that area is mind boggling. I don't know of anyone that has as many connectivity issues across all levels of service as you!

Now you know two. I have Suddenlink out to the house at least twice a week and have had them that way for the last 6 months or so. I'd switch...if the only other option wasn't radio at 1.5Mbps and a 10GB hard cap.

What issues are they finding? Seems crazy.

I just finished reading the piece, pretty stupid stuff. Snapchat was aware teens were causing high speed crashes as a direct result of this filter and did nothing, yeah they are absolutely partially culpable.

You gave an example Batman, let me provide a counter to that. When tylenol was aware of people tampering with their product they didn't say "oh well they are abusing our product and its not our responsibility", they acted to protect the public by securing it against neglient use. Gun manufacturers put safeties on guns to protect against accidental discharge that used to be rampant. They could have just said "golly shucks, use our product the right way" but they didn't.

To act like companies have no responsibility to the public doesn't feel right to me. If my company acted that way I wouldn't want to be associated with it. There is more to life than simply making money, you can do so in a responsible and moral manner. I get the whole old man "aint no personal responsibility anymore" bit because I feel the same way sometimes but I think you're way off base on this one. Also you never came back to the thread about child porn the other day when you said they should be publicly executed, that guy turned out to be a cop just FYI. Might give you some perspective on that subject in the future.


I sure did. Go read.

Sorry, I am working 2 jobs, working 6-7 days a week......if you haven't noticed I am hardly around.

Prescription drugs were in his house? OMG, I have prescription drugs in my house! Am I going to die?!

Yeah I think pretty much everyone that has access to primary care, has some kind of perscription drug or other in their home. This kind of headline, without context, is misleading.

After my surgeries I tossed them all.....I see how and why people abuse opiates. Sucked to have to come off of those things 4 times. ugh. My body aches just thinking about it.

I seriously fail to see how Snapchat would be culpable in any form. wouldn't it make more sense for the passenger to use the app? I dunno. Common sense and breaking the law is apparently everyone else's fault EXCEPT the person doing it.

It's all in the article.

- Snapchat creates filter that is purposely meant for use in high speed scenarios.
- This filter leads to accidents which are documented and that Snapchat is aware of
- Snapchat does not disable this filter
- Idiot who caused accident even snapchatted a picture of herself on the gurney

I got all of that in a 5 second perusal of the article. No one said Snapchat is solely responsible but there is definitely a liability case at the least.

Don't you claim to be a police officer and are always going on about texting and driving? Your flip flop on issues makes me wonder.

You are making my post way more than what I posted. I mention a passenger.....never said a driver shuold be doing something.

Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD. Every car manufacturer makes a vehicle that can go over 100 MPH, does that make them culpable anytime someone goes over the speed limit?

Our society is decaying into an attitude that nothing is the individuals fault - and that is troublesome.

Interesting video about light bulb types and testing using just reflection from a CD disc. The guy's got a nice shop, but he seems a bit... particular and slightly strange. But then aren't we all?

Yea, very goofy dude.....but very cool video. I use a LED ribbon front front to back of the garage on a motion sensor. Wife pulls vehicle in, it turns on. Leaves garage, it turns off. Wife enters garage to go to vehicle, it turns on.

Things are so flippin bright! My whole setup costs like 8 bucks. Amazing.

Anyone checked this out? Is it any good?

Said many times, I love it. Disclaimer, I am not a MMO kind of guy. I really enjoy the lore of the series, and they do a very good job with the story line. I also do not do PvP, I just enjoy being in the world, exploring, doing the missions. I am running 6 toons.

/I did find a ton of mods that make the game more user friendly. Again, don't know shit about shit of what it is supposed to look like - but mods helped immensely with loot inventory, maps, some other visuals, etc.
