Do you all mind if I hang out in here?

Hey all,

I'm not a cop. I am a supporter of cops though. I am very greatful for all you do in keeping us all safe from the boneheads of our society.

That being said, would you all mind if I troll around (ok, not like the typical forum troll) and post in here from time to time, and maybe throw my $0.02 in on a discussion? I poke my head in GNG from time to time, and find the paranoia and assinine comments far outweighing common sense enough for me to avoid posting anything beyond jokes and maybe a cool picture now and then.

Of course you're welcome.

But not knowing you, I gotta make a request: Look at the stickies and old threads and take note of what sets off the alarm bells. Thanks in advance.

Come on in! We don't bite.....much.

I'd suggest taking Sam's advice, but considering your first post, I think you'll do just fine.

"cops are like everyone else, just wear a costume to work...."

And our sense of humor is a little more warped. But, just a little.

Funny, I always referred to it as "oh crap, I can't believe I just let that slip in front of all these 'normals.'"

Welcome and enjoy!

I made the mistake of using cop lingo on a hunting forum I frequent. That did not go over well with the crowd over there. It seems they didn't like the term, "make him eat some pavement." LOL..

So, next time, just say, "give him the Police handshake".

LOl I guess talking about giving the old "wood shampoo" wouldn't go over well either. Police handshake works..
