So are you insinuating that these two are representative of the typical firefighter and dispatcher?

What was your point in coming in here to post this article, to elicit outrage from us or was it to come in here and show us how evil firefighters and dispatchers are?

One more question, how many regulars from this forum come in to CopTalk and post articles about police misconduct?

It's not a big deal Dale. The "bad boy and bad girl" misbeahved at work. They got caught, they were fired. It's happened to a lot of cops too.

I wanna party with you, cowboy !!!

You know, if a similar article regarding a cop was posted in the LEO forum, TheBadOne would be making some type of snide comment regarding anti-LEO sentiments. Why this type of enciting behavior on the Fire/EMS forum?

Please read my posting in "another black eye". Again, not only should the public hold us to higher standards, but we should hold ourselves to higher standards. These cases are not indicative of most firefighters, dispatchers, EMT's, or police officers, but when one of us screws up, it always makes us all of us look bad.
