The ARROGANCE of running red and yellow lights!

Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

No. That's a big problem. If the crime has to be commited right in front of you for anything to be done about it, then why the hell do we need you? To get a police report for the insurance claim? To keep the rest of us from eating too many donuts? I have better uses for the money I kick in for your salary.

Like paying for an internet connection and acting like a dick online - that shit doesn't pay for itself!

Almost got plowed in to at the John Nolan / Rimrock Intersection tonight by someone blowing through a red when I was greenlighted - the weird part was that she'd had red for a while, so not sure what was up there.

Also, just a reminder kids - your cars will last a lot longer if you don't always accelerate and stop as fast as possible for, say, a two block stretch!

Maybe trying to text someone on her Beretta 25.

So when someone gets hurt, it's a real crime. Until then, I'd rather see them solve the murder of a young girl - especially if 911 has the crime on tape.


When someone beats and stabs her to death in front of my marked squad, no problem. When the 911 call of the sounds of a struggle is pinpointed to a cell tower putting the location within several square blocks and the police are not sent to the actual homicide scene which was not within public view until later, things are more complicated.

But I will pass on your feelings to the detective who is assigned to work that case full time. He has nothing else to do but review thousands of pages of interviews and reports and follow up on new information that still comes in every week. Sir.


Felony burn.
