  1. Random Thoughts - Quarantine Edition

    Yup, western suburb of cook county. We’ve had a few protests/marches, but thankfully they remained peaceful. We were all in the area near the protests to be (somewhat) prepared for the worst, but ultimately used a hands off approach with them. The organizers actually reached out to our department to facilitate things even though they have no obligation to do so. Our chiefs were at the protests and our chief actually spoke at one and we assisted with traffic control for the March. I think that approach really helped and hopefully helped bridge the gap with some of our residents. I had one person try to bait me into saying something stupid, but sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all (and THANK GOD i was wearing a mask and sunglasses at the time so my facial expressions couldn’t be seen lol). And yeah i did hear that heated conversation lol. And now she’s upset that he recorded that conversation?! Maybe don’t tell him he’s full of crap when he’s raising a legitimate concern. I don’t want to violate forum rules, so I’ll leave it at that. As far as people just needing to vent, i got a (real) haircut for the first time last week. It felt so refreshing just to be able to talk to a total stranger. Not even talking about any of the serious, decisive topics; just small talk felt so good. These times are definitely making me appreciate the little things in life.

    I definitely think it's a little bit of the two. I needed to step away from the internet, social media, etc. for a little bit after the past few weeks.

    That sounds...just awful.

    Hey for something like this feel free to start your own thread if you feel like it will help garner interest. This sounds fun, but unfortunately i am far too busy with work currently to participate.
  5. Lol I’m pretty sure i convinced you to do it
  6. @Tyty remember when you and I (pre mod days) changed our avatars to mimic some of the mods in TAST (including @ET80 I think) and started modding people. You got banned for a couple weeks and lost all avatar/signature privileges, and nothing happened to me? Good times.
  7. Oh most definitely

  9. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Well they don’t call it C(r)ook County for nothing! And I get it, I’m just a guy in the internet and there’s no way to verify what I’m saying . Skepticism is generally the best practice on the Internet. But I’ve talked directly to one of the detectives who worked the case and I’ve got no reason to not believe him, so take it for what it’s worth.
  10. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Maybe he was shot because people knew he had covid and he got within 6 feet of them?
  11. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    A town near where I work (in law enforcement) had a murder earlier this month. The victim was shot multiple times and obviously died as a result. After the autopsy, the medical examiner ruled the cause of death as COVID19-related because he tested positive. Not the multiple gun shot wounds. I'm not saying this is the case everywhere, but it has happened.
  12. Does more need to be done?

    Any idea why Freeman’s deal fell through? Health-related?
  13. The Jets and Jamal Adams

    On behalf of the Chicago Bears, I'll offer you 7 tight ends for him. Take your pick.
  14. I bet they have dark mode over there.
  15. NFL's biggest individual choke job

    Voted for Romo, but I still have to throw Cody Parkey in as an honorable mention.
