Re: T-Stop turns sideways very quickly *Video*

The shooting looked incredibly controlled and accurate under that kind of stress. I'm betting bad guy had about 12 .40 holes blown through his back. Too bad, so sad...NOT.

Re: GENERAL RCMP APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

All I can say is wow. You all have some patience...far more than I would. I was contemplating the idea of applying to RCMP, but the mere thought of waiting for 1-2 years before even being sent to training is insane in my opinion. You could apply, get trained, and be a fully functioning constable wit...

Re: Mental skills necessary to be an effective PO

Recollection skills would certainly be useful for the most important police duty of all...testifying in court. There are many possible ways to improve your memory, so you should probably start "Googling." I'm nowhere near the finish line of being hired, but I work in a job that involves ex...

Re: Citizens arrest trial

As an ex-Loss Prevention Officer I can say that I am 100% against increased citizen arrest powers; they are fine the way they are. I can't even imagine the number of false arrests that would be made if citzens/security personnel were allowed to arrest based on RPG. They aren't educated and trained i...

Re: Bieber 'sulks' over theatre flap

Does nobody see the real problem here? Females are flocking to this little fruit in droves. Somehow, it has become attractive to be a scrawny, high pitched, arrogant, and utterly useless piece of trash. This is what the coming generation of women find attractive; personally I find this highly distur...

Re: Pre-Screening

What is with the constant thinking it was someone's "friend" business? It was a legitimate question. I went to school with him and I know exactly what some of his issues are and I know he has some contact with police...yet he passed his PBQ. So how does someone with a police record and que...

Pre-Screening

I heard through the grapevine that many services have already decided they will hire you after your interviews (assuming you ace them) and that all the polygraph, background, psyc stuff is obviously for verification purposes of all information collected. Can any people in the know shed light on this...

Re: Work History On Police Applications

Why don't you just call the police service and ask what they are looking for? Nobody here can give you a qualified answer; although, employment history is pretty fucking basic stuff.

Re: Fines put on Property Tax

Parking enforcement serves no purpose except to generate revenue for city councils that couldn't manage a hot dog stand. Parking enforcement actually serves a perfectly valid purpose. It's purpose to ensure that there is a regular turnover in parking spots so as to ensure that spots are available f...

Re: Fines put on Property Tax

With actual traffic fines I agree that people should be "forced" to pay. However, with parking tickets...I hope the province never sees a fucking penny of that money. Parking enforcement serves no purpose except to generate revenue for city councils that couldn't manage a hot dog stand. If...

Re: Ahhhh...you just have to love human kindness!

Unfortunately I think it's all too obvious why people do nothing. We are raising wussies these days with absolutely no ability to handle a situation more stressful than getting the wrong latte at Starbucks in the morning. The reason people stand by and do nothing...THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. They h...

Re: CBSA Officers are not very nice!

As a person that takes the occassional road trip south of the border I have had to deal with Canadian and US border guards quite often. I have had a few experiences which left a sour taste in my mouth due to rude and sometimes stupid guards, but you run into that anywhere...restaurant servers, sales...

What the fuck is that picture all about? What the fuck has society come to when this is even remotely considered ok? I would comment on the way they are dressed as well, but that would be futile.
