Didn't post this...

...in the Po-Po Forum because I wanted everyone to have access to it.

Here, at least in my world, is yet another stark reminder that life is finite, fragile, and you should ride what you want.

This took place while I was at work yesterday, in my precinct, some of my guys involved (we had scads of cops there by the time the shooting took place). Thank God no officers were harmed, but it was a very close call...

I've been to too many police funerals in my 16 year career. I've got less than nine to go before retirement. I hope I can make it w/o going to any more.

I second that! You guys are underappreciated for the work you do protecting the rest of us. Here's to the safety of you and your brethren as you serve and protect. Thanks!

Re: Didn't post this...

Why don't you guys just let them kill themselves and then call us to pronounce the idiot dead? That way we don't have to transport anyone and everyone goes home safe. Including the dumb ass in the body bag.

Well, that's awfully nice of you to say whipper, but I hope you know I wasn't trying to stir up support for cops, rather, to imply that all of us here on our beloved board face grave risks in life (cancer, car wrecks, heart disease, sundry accidents, etc). Soooo, my new mantra is, ride what you want!

Re: Didn't post this...

smkeatr. I'm with you!

And yes Chain, I am another who really appreciates the (usually) thankless job you guys/gals perform. Unless you are writing me a ticket of course! In that case

Little touchy this morning bro? Get woke up in the middle of the night by the fire bell?

Edit: guess not, I see the timestamp on your message, you posted last night.
