    For the record, I have seen the threat of physical violence solve a problem at the fire house. Right way to do it? Nope. But it was a way.

    Probably need better leadership. I'm not the problem, HAS to be the chief.
    And all it takes is for one friend of the guy being threatened to corroborate his story that he was threatened with physical violence and then what?

    Sorry, it simply is not worth it. Follow the chain of command within the fire department, if you get no satisfaction go to HR, and then outside to a lawyer if you still get no solution to the harassment.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    Maybe it's not too late

This is not the first time you have attacked the individual and not the presentation or argument. As long as everybody agrees with you, then everything is fine. But ... if you do not agree, then you attack the person. Wow!

      Respectfully, your attacks are not professional. My opinion does not agree with yours. So what? I am allowed presenting my point of view as equalily as others. Again ... if you do not agree with somebody, just say that you do not agree ... at let it go at that. Don't go off on some rant because other views don't line up with yours.

      FyredUp ... are YOU polluting this Forum? And ... I think, (do not know) you never been in a fight? And again, perhaps what the American Fire Service needs today is a little bit more backbone? Something I am not seeing from some points of view? I am now talking you YOU. You have me doing it. Sorry. Respectfully. HB of CJ (old coot)

      I for one regret what is happening to this Fine Forum. Just me. FyredUp; please PEM me. We need to talk a bit.
      It's not just Fyred Up, I for one think he's dead on the money in regards to your comments. That kind of thinking has NO place in the fire service. I'm the least favorite fan of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharton, et al, and all they stand for, but you're right on the line of glorifying the way the fire service used to be when it excluded certain people. This is the part where you just cut your losses and move on.

The world has changed and the consequences of a "simple fist fight" make it not so simple of an answer anymore.
        I had a kid texting my niece (who was living with us at the time) with some foul language. I called the parent and explained the situation, and that I expected the father to ensure that his son had no contact what so ever with her. I told him his form of discipline was up to him, but I happened to be on active duty at the time in Texas, and didn't have time for this nonsense. I told him I wouldn't be very happy if I had to deal with this when I got home. Evidently he dealt with his son, because I never heard anything more about that kid.
        I won't wait for the school to step in, I go right to the source.

          I thought I felt the Earth spin slightly off its axis. YOU and ME agreeing on something is pretty wild. Maybe there is hope for world peace and understanding!

            We've agreed on a LOT of things in the past. Except for a few times when you were in need of a Snicker bar. I seriously hope you're not confusing me with SC....

              I like the new commercial with the Brady Bunch. Best Snickers add yet, except for the Chefs.
              The fire service is about service to our fellow man.
              There is a trust that must not be broken and we are the keepers of that trust.

                      We tried that with the cops.
                      It wasn't pretty.
