Sheesh... what's next... an unemployed whacker impersonating an actual licensed and working security guard? Oh wait... did I just give them some ideas?

First clue would be at a tee shirt at a funeral, second clue would be a ball cap at a funeral. What kind of nut is this guy? To bad that he was not the subject of a nozzle test at max psi !

I do believe a thorough soaking in pepper spray then the nozzle test to rinse the pepper spray off would be more entertaining. Say something in the 3-5 million scoville range.

We have our own version of whackers here. It's called our local volunteer fire department. At the station nearest my house, four of them were arrested for going around setting fire to abandoned buildings.

T-shirts on firefighters are the norm here in AZ. Trying to get line FFers to buy and wear a dress uniform is like asking your 8 year old to wear short pants, knee socks, oxfords, topped off with a school blazer and tie.

I have seen many line FFers wearing t-shirts and FR trousers at PD funerals.

Same here. The only time I have seen a fireman in dress uniform was when one of our cadets graduated and his father in law, a fire captain, came to the graducation ceremony in full dress whites along with his Salvation Army style service cover.

Ya I have noticed the FDs in AZ are a lot different than CA or the east coast. Not a badge in sight on work days..

FD whacker. Well, I suppose the CO can't be far behind. Or, maybe an EMT whacker.

I am waiting for transit worker whackers. Then, it will have jumped the shark.

Actually, firemen setting fires so they can put them out is fairly common. I don't get that - it's like a cop killing somebody so he can investigate a murder.

I know, right?!

It seems that 9 times out of 10 these firebugs are Vollies, though. Hence the comment.

In my case, the fire was cover to raid the "really good" drug locker and steal a bunch of drugs highly sought after on the street while fighting the fire. Maybe the paid fire fighter was a volunteer drug supplier?

Got it. I don't think my county has a single paid firefighter. From what I've seen of them, the folks at my local station are nothing more than redneck wannabes who joined to get the tee shirt. God forbid I should ever need to call them.

Wow, we're lucky here I guess. The few volunteer departments we have are pretty well run and they get rid of whackers quickly. It's California, so no one can have emergency lights on a personal vehicle. They go to the station and respond from there on the equipment, but still have excellent response times.

Well, CA has money; WV doesn't. We have to schedule our emergencies for after 5:00 pm because all the volunteers have day jobs. WalMart clerk to whacker: not a tough transition.
