On the lifeguard thingy:
The first thing we always learned in LG training, was to NOT become victim #2.


But, Eddie would go. And many of us still remember him.

Sh!t happens(to the best of us). My town never lost a swimmer, or guard.
But hurricanes could be fun! (ex-guards only)
We had the son of the first woman to swim the English Channel.

Did you have "Percy the Pervert" who tried to help all the little girls who got knocked down by the surf?

So, what did we learn from yesterday's discussion?
-That is isn't OK to send a teen into the wild surf to save a life, even when well trained & supervised.
-It is OK when an unsupervised minor teen goes into a curfew area with the intent to use deadly force if necessary, to protect property.

I was TRAINED, but only so I could surf at the military installation where I worked as a civilian. It was required that all in the "surf club" be trained lifeguards. Military could bring 2 guests, civies only one. Somebody in the club had to go to OoD's office, check out the surf flag, and run it up the pole to tell Security that the beach was indeed open, and a trained lifeguard was present.

No little girls.

Funny story (to me) when I got trained the first time, it was at some daycare center pool, and the instructor was just trying to get all her teen assistants trained so the pool there could be opened. Being 5'10" 190lbs of solid muscle (at the time) she made me fill the part of real rescue victim. Everyone else had to be able to at least get me hanging over the coping of the pool before she would pass them. I got pushed under so many times, and my ribs were scraped worse than surfing bareback.

On the way home, after dark, I got pulled over by CHP (alleged speeding 85+ and pulling away from the officer) When I told him my '75 Volvo 245 4-cyclinder was incapable of such speeds, I had seen him on the onramp, looked down and was doing 68, and didn't vary from that speed until he hit his lights, he then wanted to discuss my bloodshot eyes. I related the above LG story, offered to allow him to touch my wet bathing suit (in the bag, not on my waist) and then he thanked me for being prepared.

Show them the video of the recent barber shooting, and ask them "what if that was you getting your hair done, and it was your hairdresser's angry ex boyfriend / husband / etc?"

I really hoped for better from the Ladies & Gentlemen here.


Full Definition of cynic

1 : a faultfinding captious critic especially : one who believes that human conduct is motivated wholly by self-interest.

I am watching body cam again. I don't think any of you guys are canine officers? What do you think about the future of police canines.

On my department the K9 handlers are part of our Special Enforcement Bureau; the equivalent of a SWAT team. Canines are extremely valuable resources that pay dividends whenever there is a large area, building, etc. that needs to be searched. In addition, K9's limit officer exposure/injury.

I was always very happy when the dog and handler showed up.
