I dunno, maybe you’re right - I feel ‘wronged’ by a lot of local thugs, gangs, bad kids in the local neighborhood - and if any of you remember the thread where I had to stop some drunk killing his gf by throwing her down flight, after flight of stairs… I think in the most part I’m doing it to stop that, I’d rather have put that guy in a pair of cuffs, not a cast…
I think being a copper is a noble profession, in the most part… we know a local copper, that goes climbing, at the place we do - said he’s always being picked up drunk, doing handstands in waterfalls and the likes by his fellow officers… that’s what’ I’m looking for, the “brotherhood” that goes with doing something worthwhile… kinda like we bikers have, but without all the cop bashing.
I think I mentioned it earlier in the thread, but I’m working for my self as a software engineer - and I don’t wanna do this forever - and, I’ve almost joined the Armed forces more than once - I even did phase-1 (basic training) once… that was fun
So, this is a foot in the door, to a proper career, when I decide that locking up the bag guys is more important that peddling porn on the internet, lol
…Maybe i could combine the skill set - and break into proper computer-intelligence work in the police force one day… who knows.
Trojan, feel free not to answer, but have you ever been pulled - or taken aside… for a ‘word’ with a copper… and he’s changed his mind about booking you when he realized you were on the force ?
I got caught doing 120 on the motorway… figured I was in for the big squeeze, but I was running loads of weapons up to Warcop for the TA (proper permits and everything, and the firing mechanisms are transported seperately, as I was only a civilian! (my mum’s an officer with them) but once they realised i was ‘with the ta’ … it all went much smoother!)
