Had a defense lawyer grilling me on the stand once during a OUI trial. He was losing the trial and jury so he decided to slam me on my spelling/grammar in the report. Thats all he had. I held up a noticed he sent me regarding the breathalyzer machine, Im the keeper of records and pointed out that not only did he spell his own clients name wrong he also spelled Hurd St as Herd St. He was in disbeliefand shock I actually brought that to his attention. He blamed a co-worker. Everybody in the court laughed and thought it was funny. After the laughter ceased all he could say was, no further questions. Got the conviction. Courts and Juries are smart enough to realize that everyone makes grammar and spelling mistakes and they dont change the facts of a case. This lawyer is not one of Lowell's brightest anyway.

THE FIREFIGHTERS PRAYER
When I'm called to duty God
wherever flames may rage
give me strength to save a life
whatever be its age
Help me to embrace a little child
before it is too late
or save an older person from
the horror of that fate
Enable me to be alert
to hear the weakest shout
and quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out
I want to fill my calling and
to give the best in me
to guard my neighbor and
protect his property.
And if according to your will
I have to lose my life
bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.

"If this guy dragged you, or one of your family, from a burning building you'd be blowing kisses up his back side. Instead, he is obviously OVERSERVED, gets drunk and he acts up. He embarrassed himself and the department. If he wasn't a firefighter this story would never have made the paper. But it did, and it gives some of you model citizens a chance to take a swipe from behind your keyboard. Get a life!!!"
You sound like an idiot, it's so obvious that you weren't there. He was at a table, where he was served TWO drinks, the waitress cut him off, and when she went to close out his tab he flipped out. He tried to sneak to the bar and get a drink, and screamed at the bartender "come here bitch". He then got in the managers face and when the police where nice enough to tell him to leave, and he wouldn't be charged he went after the other guy who just happened to be walking by.
You're an idiot. Before you start shooting off at the mouth get your facts straight.
And who wouldn't thank a firefighter for saving their family? No one here said they wouldn't.

You're obviously a complete idiot. Don't slamm on firefighters. These guys lay it all on the line for complete strangers and idiots alike. When you are running out of your burning house like a little bitch, these will be the guys running in.
