My 2 storiesabout LEO's are as follows.
My wife at the time and I were in the middle of a divorce proceeding and she called me PO"D because the judge would not give her use of MY camping trailer. Notice the word MY. Bought by me before marriage. Paid for by my before marriage and on a permanent site in the Thousand Islands.  So she called me and at the end of the very brief conversation I said the following words which I quote verbatim "HI HO HI HO it's off to camp I go".  Within 15 minutes there was a knock on my door and two of Syracuse Police departments finest were there to cuff me and take me away. Why? Because the words HI HO HI HO it's off to camp I go caused my soon to be ex-wife great distress and I was harassing her. The LEO's did not want to hear anything like she called me and could of hung up or none of the words, was worrisome they arrested me. When it got before the judge he threw it out but I have a record.

My soon to be stole the trailer off my lot about a month later. AS I stated is was titled and registered to me. When I called the State Police they stated it was a civil matter and they could do nothing. I finally found the trailer in a town about 2 hours from Syracuse and retrieved it. I placed it back on the lot it was originally on. So it was back where the judge had originally ordered it to stay. The wonderful STATE police arrested me. WHy you ask. Because the food in the cupboards was hers and since I took the trailer I stole her food. The judge laughed that one out also.
But to this day I have a harassment  charge and a theft charge on my records.
I have other stories about how she broke into the house and cleaned it out,
How she threw me out of bed then dialed 911 to get me arrested.

If you meet me I can regale you for hours about the divorce from hell

Truth of the matter is that all law enforcement agencies hire from the same place as McDonalds. The human race.

But McDonalds get to pick first

Yeah the problem with restraining orders is that they're often only needed against the people who have no respect for the law anyway, so therefore aren't going to let a "stupid piece of paper" where they can go or who they can talk to. I know for mine, having one brought me NO comfort. That's why I armed myself, studied the laws, and got myself a people-eating mastiff pitbull mix. Those things brought way more comfort in knowing I wouldn't become a victim.

Do you have your conceal permit?     I do, 9mm here.  I wear a belly wrap holster and love it.


And everyone i have horror stories as well about my ex and her psycho antics but i was more worried about my boys so i just took the high road and kept my mouth shut until the day came that i didnt have to anymore.   

We all learn a hard lesson growing up, justice is not about right and wrong.   Justice is about who has the more convincing story and who can toss the most dirt.   In the real world the good guys dont always win and they dont always get the girl, thats just the way it is.

I don't, I don't carry outside my house besides for hunting. (Which I got into after I started getting into guns lol) I have rifles and shot guns at home. On the road, I'll be bringing just one, probably my 30.06, but just for protection in grizzly country.
I would love a cc permit, but they're VERY difficult to get here so I haven't even tried.

Well i hope your in the habbit of looking around before you go to get into your car, i forget sometimes and i leave my back exposed.   


I was thinking about my deal last night in a new way.  It could be that the citation they gave me actually was the written notice.  Although i expected it from the business owner, it may be that this works out the be the same thing.   So ill leave it alone.

I know being an officer sometimes is just draining mentally but they must understand that before they put on that badge.  If they cant handle it and cannot stay unbiased, they should go do something else as a career.   It does take a special person to handle what they do.

I missed this ridiculous comment because I don't read your posts anymore. It is however the stupidest, most irresponsible comment ever. Congratulations!

We won't be slandering the very group of people that protect us and die for us. And that goes for law enforcement, fire fighters and our military. Not on this forum. You can voice a concern about a problem with a particular instance, but we WILL NOT be painting any group with a broad brush. Any further comments will be removed.

Perhaps, maybe and possibly you are to close to the subject.  Not definite just could be. Sorry you disagree with my opinion

Being “too close” to the subject is not the problem. The problem is taking a group like law enforcement and say they are all scum of the earth. You cannot possibly personally know all law enforcement officers. Sure, there are bad cops. There are bad folks in the military. These are two very large organizations. They are made up of a microcosm of the Of all the folks in the US. You can probably predict that if 8% of the US population has red hair then 8% of LE and military will have red hair. To say that all LE are scum of the earth is ignorant at best.

I just skipped the comment and didnt reply because i knew it would cause a firestorm.  And as soon as someone replied to it, yep i was right.   Painting any group with a wide brush is not a good thing, there are good people and bad people in every walk of life and every job description out there.

Well there is one exception however "all vacuums suck"  lol   :)

It's like someone saying that RVers are all scum, because of bad experiences with some. I'm thinking the response would be 'that's different'...    8)

I expect you will NOT be calling 911 when you have an emergency.  Sorry to see an entire class of public servants sullied by your written opinion and I agree with Sarge.
