I rest my case.

Thanks to all who nominated me, but many have done far more than I did. I'll just claim the old USMC term of "salty", since it can be turned into a double entendre and I always enjoyed make rookie female cops blush. After all, I am now just a contentious citizen who earned all of his Rights back and gets a nominal sum for staying away and not corrupting the politically correct youngsters with stories of saps, PR24s, .44 Special wheelguns, no portable radios, and a two week FTO period.

I sincerely thank you.




Thread drift warning ahead!

The old timers here got that way because of the old timers in their time - it is time for me to thank that person now.

I do have to throw out a sad farewell car to car message to Captain Michael T. Watters. He died on 08 March 2011 and was part of the 9th MEB that landed at Da Nang, RVN in 1965 and fought his was though the north end for over a year. He later when on to become a cop and worked his way up to Captain. He helped guide a growing agency through a lot of pains, showed a lot of rookie cops what policing really was, and gave two former Marines hell when we didn't far exceed what others did.

He looked a bit like the Marine Corps bulldog and always had a stogie jammed into his jaw. He always said that one never knew when a stinker [decomp] was around the corner and a good cop was always ready for anything. It was his little excuse to indulge his guilty pleasure.

Unfortunately, he never retired from the PD. He was fired by a new evangelical and highly religious chief of police for violating the one time Arizona law of "living in open and notorious cohabitation" with an executive secretary for the city. He went on to own his dream - a golf shop and later became an area manager for an armored transport service.

Skipper, thanks for the kicks in the rear when I deserved them, for the breaks when I needed them, for the high standards and the realization that policing is not much more than the application of practical psychology - either by word or by other means. Thanks for all you did and for being the Old Salt in command who had a quick laugh and a practical joke.

Goodbye Mike and walk your post in Heaven well. Thanks for helping me become a salty old citizen who once had the honor of serving with men like you.

Started on my 27th birthday in 1996.

What is that? Nearly 15 years?

Surely not. Jeez how time flies. I have a digipic of my first academy graduation picture. Looks nothing like me.

Did anyone mention CC99? Maybe I am the only one that remembers him.

June 1976 worked for two different municipal departments for a few years and then went to work as a State Park Ranger. Different but have enjoyed every minute of it.

I thought this was going to be a thread about some cops with a food fetish and something their wife did to them with a jug of garlic salt...

Started the academy in fall of 1994, pinned on the badge in 1995, took some time off (long story), but never let the drive go away and got back into it because I just couldn't stay away. Now I am at that point where I want to look for different things to do but too old to start over but still young enough to have that drive. What to do, what to do.

For most seasoned? It's a toss up between the names already mentioned... SAR, Dragoon, Sam Spade, 4949, Blueiron, G27Chief, WPDChief, Ajon, Trigger Finger, etc. From their posts, and some PM's I had with them, I have no reservations whatsoever about believing in their experience and wisdom.

Big BR and Cochese definitely are the gear whores. If I have any questions about gear, it's those guys I would ask... except for closed top magazine pouches, that is. I know way more about closed top magazine pouches than those two, that's for sure.

Sam Spade and Wesprebeck get top votes for criminal case law wizards. I am ashamed at myself for not being more up on those things but as my concentration is on other areas, I have enough to read without reading up on extra criminal law on my own time for fun, other than as necessary from the briefings and memos.

South Fla, I am honored to be mentioned as a fun guy to ride with. I'll definitely know all the good eating spots and have a lot of fun out there hookin & bookin while constantly cracking jokes. As long as you can tolerate me blasting my techno dance rave music all night, that is....

I have been on since 1996 in corrections. I worked a little over five years for the state, and went to the feds to work for them in the same field. Still working it, I have seen a lot of things, heard of a lot more things. Seasoning: Dragoon is a resident ol fart whom I have gained some respect for. A lot of good others too. I have enjoyed reading what was in this thread. That is why I waited to post. I just wanted to read a little for awhile.

Chief WPD's ankle holster tip:

All those years ago at Rodman's Neck, Rich showed me that if you adjust the empty holster in place on the ankle first, and THEN insert the gun, it rides much more comfortably and concealably with less movement and shifting, but does not seem any more constrictive to the ankle.

One of those seemingly little things born of experience that make a BIG difference.

Thanks for that again, Rich!
