Sorry guys I know I've been gone a while but have been working on alot of things lately. Computer crashed, kid had surgery (he's fine), problems at work, problems at home. Everything is not going well. It's so bad that I might have to change my title to Dark Days!!!! Yep, I know I said that I would NEVER go to days but with the new Chief everyone is miserable. He has been here for about an year and just doesn't know how to make good decisions. My Sgt is starting a business just so that he can quit. Another two other Sgts are on the way out the door as well. I'd say about a third to half of patrol is planning or currently in the process of leaving. It's pretty bad. The only people really putting any effort is the rookies. Even the ones with experience are like what the fuck is going on here! They pretty much screwed me enough that I'm stuck at this department. I'm going to stick it out, hold my head high and work through the problems. I just figure since we can no longer can be cops that I'll just go to days and have better days off.

Fantastic. Greg sends along this DIY FYI:
"Good news is that I truly out did myself this year with my Christmas decorations. The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days. I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.Great stories. But two things made me take it down.
First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.
Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn't realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy). By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that. My yard couldn't take it either. I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard."
