Ian, I REALLY didn't mean my statement the way you interpreted it, and I apologize for it seeming that way.
I meant to indicate that, because some of the posts were quite disrespectful of police (and you are the only openly law enforcement person I've encountered on BPL) that you might have something to say about their attitude (as another poster did).
I'm sorry that you think I'm some kind of hysterical whiner. Obviously, we've never met, and you don't know me at all, but you are entitled to your opinion. I, on the other hand, think that you are a decent guy who has a great sense of humour...you can get carried away on occasion, but that is not very often.
Again, apologies. My remark was not meant to insult you; it was just a reference to your profession.
