    Too bad I won't be able to keep up with this tonight when I go on patrol.

    Tantrix,

    What did you dislike about the job that caused you to leave? What made you decide to come back?

    I am being sincere. You must have had your reasons.

    That was pretty much answered in my 1st PM to him, along with some other things.


    It wasn't the job...being gone from home working is being gone, no matter what profession. I actually took a leave after my father passed last year, and 6 months after that my daughter was born. I came back because...well, I was ready to.

    I've never seen a bump for a thread only 3rd or 4th down on the first page. I suppose we should just make this a sticky. Hell, let's give it its own section.

    RussP,
    I think I addition to cops, EMS/fire, and military get their own hangouts, we get a fourth. This thread's title I think would be an appropriate name... :upeyes:

    Ohhhh...a sticky, even better. I like the way you think.



    It was, he provided his info to me willingly...I did not ask for it, and he can confirm that. Matter of fact, the PM was deleted immediately.

    I've not asked anyone here for any credentials in my 9 years on GT.

    Nope. You can look if you want...never. I'm (usually) not on GT to talk about work, I get enough of that every week. I'm also not as critical of others as most LEO's here...I honestly don't have the time for all that.

    I'm not one to call somebody a liar without proof but in the link you posted I replied to him about his SF friend.
    No way on God's green earth would a active duty tabbed SF Soldier reveal INTEL to a civilian. Or I would like to believe one wouldn't!

    Is Tantrix a LEO? From his own posts I'd say no but I have been wrong before... Once. :whistling:

    Did you provide him with information about your employing agency sufficient for him to verify your status?
    Yes or No.

    And the funniest part is, nobody EVER told me what they wanted me to ask him to provide...I figured people would jump at the opportunity, but...nothing.

    Don't you consider it ironic you call others a "Bruce Willis" type - when we (police officers) would all hold back and call for back up and pre-plan a felony stop for an armed robbery offender. On the other hand you would just flip on your lights and try to take him/them into custody by yourself.

    Who is the one who watches too many movies?

    While you are waiting for the questions about your "friend", how about answering those pending questions about yourself...

    The first thing I said was what? Radio. Seems like everyone decided not to read that part, they were too busy worrying about the witch hunt.


    Asked? More like dogpiled by a bunch of (self-proclaimed) "professionals" that act more like junior-high bullies in a lunchroom. Yeah...who wouldn't be in a hurry to have new friends like that...yeah, I'll pass...just like I have for 9 years now.
