Chef, I'll bet dollars to donuts that this guy, RetiredFirefighter had a nothing, at best mediocre career if he was ever on the department in NYC. Some of what "Firefighter" has posted looks like it has been lifted from a 1972 book by Dennis Smith called "Report From Engine Company 82".
There are unfortunately people in this world who are so corrupt, so crooked that they couldn't even imagine what the "straight and narrow" even looks like, much less to follow it. This wiseguy wanna be from NY sounds just like that. He makes a great cheerleader for a corrupt small town cop run out of a job for being an "A-whole".
A "Kblue hippy" is a far better person and a cop than a Timothy Jayne flunky.
