I'm burnt out. After 21 years of this shit. I'm tired of the nightmares, paranoia, threats (many from corrupt officers). Their on there own. Now I'm just kicking back writing code and IT work for a small family run Lumber company. Damn its nice living on an island.
Well Rob says its just coincidence dozens of stories are day. But the interesting part of mine was I not only found the story I went as far as buying them off ebay for $7 and they work great. Now I'm able to give our detectives a forensics class in bumping. But with Warren Jeffs in town, Richard had to go pick him up from Vegas and now our detectives are being swamped by the press. Bump forensics will be postponed for a week.
I submitted a poll (that is being used now) it was rejected. Just after I ask about it. My karma goes bad. I then submit another story on bump locks and that story gets posted the very next day. But in my profile it again shows rejected. Hell of a coincidence! So I emailed Rob again. I hope he has a logical reason.
After subscribing This sight has been about 10 times better. Its faster, it has more information quicker.
Love it. I should have subscribed along time ago.
I'm still shocked and don't understand why someone at slashdot is pissed at me. I've only praised slashdot. I've given very open and honest comments, not intended for flame wars. But I now wonder if I offended anyone accidentally. I searched my posts and can find no reason other then asking one simple question about the slashdot poll I submitted that was slightly altered and used. When I asked why mine had shown rejected even though it was used my karma was turned to bad. I've subscribed, I've offered apology('s) anything to find out what I did wrong. I guess this goes along with my crappy weekend. Well, tomorrow I will have to try harder.
After waiting and reviewing the input of others regarding my comment in http://it.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/06/29/188221 I was saddend by the lack of broad perspective responses. It was VERY obvious most just read a section of my comment and slammed me and all Police for it. It made me recall several incidents of were the press miss quoted me, hurting other people. I was being open and honest based on the many years of being in police work. For slashdoters to slam so much and so few to even make or even give me some help was pathetic and cowardess. I felt bad for the Military person who responded, since we had several officers in Iraq who did shoot and kill. They still said being a cop is worse. I tried my best to not be an asshole, so much so I would record much of what I did and would listen to it to see if I sounded even close to being off base or an ass. I was suprised some times and quickly changed some of my tactics. I wish all police would try that.
