Thanks guys.
I have never experienced these people beside a one that's a light core sort of speak.
However, I work at times with members that did. All they say is that some of them are really fucked up and literally dengerous.

This is what I don't get.

Why would it work more often than not?
Do they actually have a point somewhere that's real?


Because they set out, very deliberately, to make things as difficult as possible for police and courts. They put up every obstruction, refuse to co-operate in even the most minor matter. And police and lawyers are people - unless it's the most serious of charges when faced with having to put in an extreme amount of work for even a small charge the temptation to just throw up your hands and walk away is strong.

But in doing so, it only further fuels their fire...

So you let them off because you don't want to work.
That's a good lesson....if your job is difficult just....give up! :thumbsup:

Lawyers....what a joke :crazy:

I don't drop things because they get more difficult. I dig my heels in. I get paid to do what I do, so what do I care how difficult the task is? 9 times out of 10 I get off work on time, I earn good money, so I will do what it takes to get the job done. You won't see me giving up just because it is tough or annoying.

I had to serve one of these knuckle heads last week. He refused to answer his door and talked to me through a window. I came back at 2:30 am and rang his doorbell NON STOP. He had a change of mind and answered it.

LOL! I've done something similar, and the guy called 911 on me.

I am sure that helped the response time stat. I mean, you were already there so the time would be a flat out zero.

He did on me too. Stood in his kitchen window with my partner and I in uniform on his porch. I could hear him tell the dispatcher that he didn't know who these thugs in black were. I pointed out to him that I was wearing blue, and would be back at 2:30 am to keep up with this. He called my bluff. He lost.
