    First I'd just like to apologize for offending (made a thread that got locked). However I think the banning of the discussion of "legal/ethical issues of police practices or policies" neuters the "Cop Talk" forum, thus ignoring a very important part of police work. Those legal/ethical issues are what the legal system is all about.

    Nonetheless, I agree that all discussions should remain civil and intelligent. I can only wonder if an officer posted what I did, would his thread be locked...

    First, you bet your ass it would.

    Second, legal/ethical issues are intended to be discussed in the Civil Liberties Forum, per Eric, the site owner. It's not up for debate. He runs his site the way he wants to. You are welcome to participate, but please mind his wishes.

    :thumbsup:

    The major problem is many times when people come here to "Debate" the issues, they do so not with logic or reason; but with keyboard commando/armchair lawyer statements that are so beyond the truth it's unreal. Then when they are at the point they can't say argue anymore, instead of saying "oh, crap, guess I was wrong" then they get pissed off and start hurling insults left and right.

    Just curious. I like the idea of civilians interacting with LEO's in a no confrontational manner (me=civilian).

    However, I have posted a couple of questions (identifying myself as civilian) and get no response. Could be perceived as stupid (I don't think so). Seems more like leo's don't want to interact, hope I am wrong?

    I'll tell you why, you are new, few posts.

    Most (not all) of the people with those characteristics are just trolls trying to bash cops, so everyone here will be a little wary at first to answer your questions until they've determined that are legit.

    Got it, makes sense. I will let some time go by (and posts) to prove I am not a Troll. I would say though that the content of the post should be judged on its own.

    Thanks for your response.

    Not that "bumping" these rules will actually move them, but I would like to give them a bump anyway (and share my own craziness).

    [rant]

    Lately I am noticing more and more people that come to CT and start the unquantifiable threads that include any mention of things like:

    Oath Creepers
    "Will you obey they constitution as I have interpreted it from my trailer?"
    "Do you hate freedom?"
    "Guess what I 'learned' on World News Daily?"
    "They took our guns!" (to be read in appropriate South Park voice)


    Most cops spend their working life around people who are cop-haters, paranoid, mentally ill or ignorant, and I am sure they would like to avoid doing the same here.

    So, my message to everyone who feels the need to get on a soap box about their issues with LE, personal views of other people's oaths or their paranoid fears about gun grabs is: I think it would make CT a better place if we did not hear about these topics again.

    I like to think of CT as a big group of cops and their friends hanging out at a Starbucks (or Dunkin Donuts, if you prefer). If you walk up to that group with an honest question, you'll get a (mostly) helpful and polite answer. If, on the other hand, you approach with an agenda and an attitude, you're gonna get an angry response and ruin the atmosphere for everyone. CT can be a great resource for everyone here.

    To put it in other words, please stop pooping in the sandbox.:steamed:

    One last thing. Glocktalk has a SEARCH function for a reason. Use it.

    [/rant]

    OK, I am off my soapbox. :faint:

    Thank you Eric for giving us this place to hangout.

    Nothing wrong with bringing this back to the top...

    The hard part? Getting people to read and understand the words.
