    This thread will probably got locked soon, but it would be nice if there was some moderator consistency here as well. Some are Pro LEO and some are like "True Believer" who gave me an infraction for wanting to expand gun laws in PA by reinstating a waiting period.

    Those were the threads to which I was referring. Forgive me, those were the only threads I've seen you in, and now this one. Again, it's hard to detect sarcasm in an emotionless text, but in my defense, I don't think I'm the only one who missed it. Walked like a duck, so I called it:wavey:

    Agree. Won't say more so I don't get another.

    I also agree frizz is trolling.

    I should have put something in to make the sarcasm clear, and I can't fault you for not seeing it.

    Looking back, I should have left it out because now a thread that I wanted to be about a very smooth cop who used people skills to get the job done has turned into an "is frizz a troll" thread.

    ETA:

    Do you think that sarcasm has been harder to detect because of all of the nuts and cranks we run in to online?

    To avoid that happening in the future, make certain your intent is crystal clear.

    Do not use 'TBO Style' titles.

    Again, make certain there is no ambiguity in the title or your comments.

    If you are complimenting LE, say so.

    If you are challenging LE, say so.

    That would help...

    Sarcasm does not become you. You need to find something that works better for you.

    And this "we", that would be you and...?

    Russ, there is no way you are going to convince me that you don't run into a lot of nuts and cranks online. You're a mod on a high-volume discussion board!

    Or did I misread you?

    To feel safe? Is it a right to feel safe? Is it a right for the one calling in to feel safe? Is it a right for the responding police officer to the man with a gun call to feel safe? Interesting questions? Perhaps. How do we balance the right to open carry with the rights of others? What rights would we intrude upon by open carrying?

    There's nothing to read. I asked a question. You did not answer.

    This video would've been WAY BETTER if instead of saying "Just to let you know, we're audio taping!!" they would've said "Just to let you know, WE'RE ******-BAGS!!"

    ***-wipes.

    Where in the constitution does it say you have the right to "feel" safe?

    Kind of open to interpretation, eh?

    Oh, I guess, if we want to be technical, the 4th Amendment:
    Granted it is about search warrants, but it is an interesting turn a phrase.
