    I saw the video of the officers getting shot. Horrible. I hope the officers recover quickly.


    Trade in your mask for earplugs and the news will look different.




    Listen to your president. He's been telling you for years that the news media is fake.

      My prayers for the families of the officers and all first responders. Los Angles County Sheriff's Office was the first department I worked for in 1981 and South Central was my district, so this goes straight to my heart. I transferred out of there to a small department in the north east a few years later. As it is now when I go on duty every night, even tho I am mainly desk duty I still on occasion am on the street my main goal is to return home to my family after every shift. People still look at the uniform and will spit at me or make some rude comment. The other night I was stopped to get a coffee and was trying to get my bank card out of my wallet and I told the couple behind me to go ahead the woman looked at her BF and said"We had better do what the officer says or he may beat us up or worse, come on lady I was holding up the line fighting with my wallet and was being nice.

        Owl you have to bite your tongue because in this world there is no shortage of idiots/morons/big mouthed fools and those who just want to stir up trouble and walk away.

          SnowOwl, I thought you would be retired by now. If you are nearing retirement then do so. Too many people now want to get attention by doing horrible things to Police Officers. God love you and protect you while on duty. I appreciate your service.
          Due to the recent budget cuts,
          the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
          current state of the economy, the light at the end
          of the tunnel has been turned off.

            Wow! I was actually expecting you to say when the couple saw you struggling, that they offered to pay for it, it's a shame that doesn't appear to be the world we live in anymore, but when I was growing up most places when the clerk saw you walking up in uniform or with a badge, would have told you coffee was on the house.

              Prayers are offered for these officers, their families, their fellow officers and all who walk with them at this time. Prayers are also offered for all law enforcement officers on duty keeping us safe and enforcing the laws that they will be kept safe and out of harm's way.

              Snowowl...and others in law enforcement who are a part of the garage - thank you for your service. There are many who "walk" the blue line with you and are proud of you and thankful each day that you put your lives on the line for us.

                I can say I truly appreciate the gesture (and sure most other firefighter and police officers do also) when the clerk offers free coffee or whatever, however I have never truly accepted it. I will attempt to pay, and if doing so will cause a scene or something I will either leave money on the counter or pay ahead for several people behind me, I instill the same wishes in my subordinates to do the same.

                  First, THANK YOU to all the first responders. 99.9% of the time they do good and no one remembers, but nobody seems to forget that point 1 percent bad...sounds a bit like the Hell's Angels in that regard. Somehow that point one percent is used to paint ALL police with the biggest, broadest brush some people can find...and use Gestapo tactics to get their point across, and cry foul when anyone disagrees.

                  Second, I've put myself between a rock and a hard place agging this thread on. I don't blame anyone else, I'm just as guilty and moreso. These are very trying times, and while I refuse to be silenced by cancel culture in real life, I did break the "no politics" rule.

                  Third, since there have been complaints, I need to lock this thread. I hope those that have been denied a voice practically EVERYWHERE else had a moment to vent their frustrations.
                  The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

                  Thank you for your understanding.
