There's several PD's that hire 18yr olds.

Detroit PD immediately comes to mind.. but I know there's others.

There are many jobs that they can give the young people until they are 21 or so. I have never met an 18 yr old cop.

It's just timing. My stick buddy in flight school pinned on WO1 and his wings hardly a month after turning 18. Figure 8 weeks for basic and 9 mo for flight school means he was barely 17 when he enlisted...18 yo cops don't even surprise me.

Technically under state law LE agencies can hire 18 yr olds in TN too, but I've never ran into one when I help teach at the academy. There were a few 20 yr olds here and there, but they were the youngest. I personally wouldn't hire 18 yrs olds. The majority still have some growing up to do.

I'm absolutely sure you had to be at least 19 the day you graduated flight school. Or I'm not a CW4 Master Aviator Retired...and I am. WOC Class 69-25.

Now back to the furball...

Me thinks the OP may be the infamous Mall Cop, trained as a Ninja and patrolling the mall in body armor carrying the latest in Assault Rifle technology.

For some reason my mind keeps switching Bucksnort1959 with Gecko45...must be dickslexia....

On topic: I am not a lawyer, nor a cop, but to my layperson way of thinking it breaks down to this....

You gave the police all they needed to pull you over by speeding, looks like that one is on you.

On top of that you had a few drinks, again your decision.

And prior to this you made the decision to carry after having imbibed alcohol, yet another personal choice.

What are your state's laws concerning alcohol and concealed carry? And if you don't know them, why not?

Three less than optimal choices on one road trip. We all make mistakes, but it looks like you were trying to fill your punchcard all at once. Did I miss any extenuating or mitigating circumstances? not excuses, everyone has those.

I yearn for the day that people start taking responsibility for their cock ups and quit playing victim. Until then I leave you with a quote from a wise man....

"Stop breaking the law, *******!!!"

I got my frontal body armor

from Second Chance in Central Lake MI, when Richard Davis owned it. Where have the years gone?

If you know of Second Chance, why did you ask as you did?

Good that some don't drink or can't handle booze.
I commend them for being completely sober.

I answered the questions to the extent that others have advised is enough. Even some of you questions were answered but you might have missed them.
As the wannabe cop was spouting the wrong laws it's just amazing peeps want to give their opinion of guilt or innocence but won't opinion a jury instruction, not mine in particular, but in general. Not really hard to do.
And it's not too hard to say you've operated and drank ma beer is it?
Are you coming back?

Sorry but I was unaware if any relevant laws had been passed in the last 20 years that I may have forgotten since I lost a lot of my memory after my June 2008 head-injury bicycle accident.

If he finds a lawyer, let's hope it's a contingency fee instead of hourly pay.

295 responses. Amazing.

I believe Mr. Bucksnort has abandoned this tread completely.
