I've lived here almost that long and never had a problem with the FPD or any police department. Why? Because I believe in obeying the law. My kids have gotten tickets or did when they lived here, and they had to own up to the fact and pay it.<quoted text>
lol, I like your post! You're awful fast to go on the defensive and point the finger in the other direction. Which raises red flags when someone has simply asked the opinions of others on how the department is ran.
Maybe it is his business even though he might not live here. Did you stop to think that he might own a business here and live elsewhere? he might be a single parent whose children attend your schools. Why would you imply that he broke the law and received a citation? And I don't see any allegations in his post. And seriously? You've lived here for 40 years and not one time ever, in that 40 years have they ever messed up or done anything wrong? Not even by accident? Lol nothing huh? Sounds to me that this is an attempt to divert attention away from the question asked and the answers implied. Your instantaneous defensive posture, as any psychiatrist will tell you, indicates that you're trying to hide something or protect someone.
Just saying ;)
I don't know what the guy's problem is with the police or yours. But you are accusing someone with no proof just like the person you are responding to did. So how does that make you different?
Aside from that let's use your logic and ask you why you are so argumentative about his or her opinion? Why can you not believe there are people (I'll bet lots of them) that have never had a problem with the police no matter where they live?
Using your logic, your statement about "red flags" could definitely apply to yourself.
