Re: I live in a warzone. Oh wait, no, I'm in St. Louis.

Yes, it should be examined and should be questioned and should never be allowed to continue. But what I see, is instead of examining, and questioning, and asking why this is occurring and trying to get to the bottom of it, is anger and foaming at the mouth, directed at law enforcement as a whole. th...

Re: How afraid of needles are you?

Five? I hate them, and I get sweaty and floaty headed when I have to have a shot or blood drawn, but I've had it done so many times...when I've had to have it done often in a short time, I'm less apt to be freaked out. But when it's been a while, then I am more anxious. Shots at the dentist are no b...

I asked JD. He said, these towns are rough towns. Our dept doesn't have anything like that b/c we don't need it. We don't have the gangs that some other towns do. Storm Lake in particular has been known as Little Chicago since my mom was little. Shit is BAD there. I myself witnessed an officer pull ...

Well, you're safe in my small town Iowa. And the small towns all around here..and the bigger ones too. JD would know if they were gearing up to make war on America. I would think JD would know if USA LE was making plans to attack the population at large. Unless maybe us small towns aren't invited to...

Re: I live in a warzone. Oh wait, no, I'm in St. Louis.

Never said it was acceptable. Pointing out that we aren't there. We aren't in the situation. We don't know what's going on. And the public is getting itself completely rabid over this, which does not help. I can not say with 100% certainty what happened and if what happened was right or wrong given ...

Re: I live in a warzone. Oh wait, no, I'm in St. Louis.

What I think we should do is sit in our armchairs and use our broad stroke brushes and paint all cops the same way. It's easier, b/c they're all obviously corrupt and shitholes, so let's call a spade a spade, right? There's so much in the media about the corruption in law enforcement, so it must be ...
