You are right, to a point. A more correct statement would be that very few "Real Police Officer[s]" want to come on these forums after they deal with all day or night and deal with this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those that do, well they do so for several reasons. No need going into them. You wouldn't accept them.

It wasn't too long ago that even fewer participated. I know a few who use to join in. One of my close personal friends is among those who got frustrated with the unbridled idiocy of the ignorant experts telling them how to do their jobs, spreading lies and misconceptions, making unfounded allegations, and left.

I also know that more and more "Real Police Officer[s]" are joining in discussions not only here in Cop Talk, but also in Carry Issues, Civil Liberties Issues, and other forums they previously ignored.

Don't know if you've you've noticed, MoneyMaker, but those who are not "Real Police Officers" but pretend they are, they do not fair well around here.

And, yes, it is probably best if you are "done with this section of the forum."

But, again, you are somewhat correct. The vast majority of law enforcement officers do not participate on open forums. They prefer sites where members must be vetted to participate.
Freedom has a taste to those who fight and almost die, that the protected will never know.
