    Nothing good happens at 3 o'clock in the morning.
     
  3. Yep. At that point, you're probably taking the ugly chick home at best :rofl:

    in high school, my dad always justified my midnight curfew by saying "there ain't nothing to do after midnight that can't be done before midnight".

    that midnight curfew probably saved my life back then.
     
  6. With that mindset, you can be my wingman any day :wavey:

    DSS guys are well trained and carefully vetted. This is a tragic situation on a number of levels.
     
  8. I'd say let the facts play out......Apparently, there seems to be more to this incident than what's being reported...

    Nothing. As long as she's gone before you're sober and it's light outside.

    :embarassed:

    Probably a legit SD shooting but he will be screwed over alcohol content.

    I'll hold my judgment till more info. is released. We were in Maui (first time) a couple months ago and it is a bit different on the islands. The fact that he was charged w/ murder so quickly doesn't surprise me unfortunately.

    DSS guys from what I've seen (not a lot) seem to have their crap together.

    I think one of the articles I read said he pretty much just walked up and shot the other guy in the chest. The McDonalds was full of people too. I'll try to find the article.

    Holy crap.
     
  15. DS pretty much take their pick from a lot of top-tier candidates. Discretion is a major virtue. Obviously this guy got outside the lines...

    Ah, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with what I call the "sliding scale of standards." :supergrin:

    I agree with Cochese. Even money says this wouldn't get a second look if he was under .02, but given these circumstances... :dunno:

    Is it odd to be 27 and working for DSS? Thought most guys that the feds want do a few years on the street, several years in investigations, and then they start applying for .gov jobs...

    My understanding is that he has been a special agent for 2 years. It's not that unusual to start as a special agent in your mid 20s.

    FBI wants Agents as you described. Ages range quite a bit at fletc. I was an old fart when I was there in 09. I started when I was 35

    It's unclear to me if this guy was a dss sa or a agent from another part of dept of state. (oig maybe).

    My understanding of dss is similar to what others have said. those guys are the cream of the crop.

    Not a chance
    Everything I have seen has bene phrased like "according to the victims family"

    So I will let this play out and see what official information comes out..


    and he showed extremely poor judgement being in the same area as a guy he had a beef with... in his job you leave and minimize your exposure and only act in self defense when you cannot evade teh problem..

    my spider sense says he really screwed up.
