Re: OPP Background

So would they find out if you are on ODSP or used to be on ODSP? It is disability welfare. No, there is absolutely no way to find out about your friend being on ODSP. It is highly confidentail information, not available to government-policey types. I've had insomnia for over 40 years, no one ever g...

This. I have studied Rex for years and to be honest, I have gained the wisdom of a man.

Plus they use the buddy system, no more flying solo.

A real hard-ass huh? I know the type. I myself shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

Re: OPP Applicant Updates Thread

Well this homicide sergeant friend of his is right about one thing. We are getting a lot of guys with PhD's nowadays. Our office is full of them. In fact I don't think the OPP has hired one officer without a PhD in the past 4-5 years. I plan on getting mine soon, just to keep up. Our office is so ed...

No, they are. We're really not very friendly.

Now beat it.

Re: Wedding proposal shuts down LA Highway

There are hardly, if ever, any emergencies in a city like L.A. Celebrities live there. Disneyland is there. But if there ever was an emergency, Ponch and Jon would handle it. Last I checked they drive motorbikes, so they could always weave between the wedding party to get to this "emergency&quo...

Re: Your Opinion on Colour Deficient or Colour Blind Police

Well, Aldrich Ames passed the polygraph, twice. It is far from a perfect tool.

Verbose Caveman, however, seems to be a perfect tool.

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

I don't know how successful I'd be in these new vehicles.  No, neither do I. But I don't automatically assume how much worse off I'd be, and I've been driving the blasted things nearly as long as you. To each their own I guess, I've just grown to hate 'em. Keep in mind, I didn't mind them nearly so...

Re: Need some career direction.

Sounds like you want to be an "investigator" but not a cop. We have an abundance of the former, but the latter are always in short supply.

Re: 2013 Ford Interceptor & Utility

I will be very glad to see the last of the Crown Vics. Worst handling car on the road, at least in crappy weather.

Send 'em all to the scrapyard.
