I couldn’t agree with you more.
This might make you laugh.... For 30 long years I was paid to jump in the middle of that garbage and stop the assault. I retired about 12 years ago. I am the same guy, with the same principals and integrity, but this country and it’s people have changed.
While I am proud of what I accomplished as a very tenacious crime fighting LEO, if I had life to do over again, I think I would have rather been a professional photographer or perhaps a commercial pilot.
You have your mind right, much more than many folks.
I will now go back to lurking mode. ;>)
