    Departments that use "initiation" think that is how to separate the "real" firefighters from the wanna-be's. Generally because they operate more like a fraternity. Professional organizations use training instead.

      I thought this kind of shat went away when they grounded the animal house boys at kentland.

      initiations that turn into deviant sexual assault[ class A felony] cattle prods would also be assault with intent to cause bodily injury [Class B felony]
      How much prison time do they want to sign up for.

        Despicable and shameful. Throw 'em to the wolves. Good on the person that suffered the abuse though. He's willing to stick it out and continue on, although I'd probably leave that department with a middle-finger salute. Here in Texas volly departments and combo departments are legion, so there should be plenty of other better options.

          What has happened to these sexual deviants in Texas?
          Are they still locked up in Jail?

          Are they running for a political race yet?

          Seems like everyone else in texas is a candidate for president.

            You mean before or after the Chief and his assistant were arrested for witness tampering?

            That was 5 days after the firefighters were arrested.

            Anyways, all of the morons have made bail.

            An interesting side note,

                The potential for there to have been dead bodies laying all over that firehouse was pretty high. Not only was the victim sexually assaulted, now he will bear the brunt of toppling the apple cart of this so called fire department. My bet is this is not the first time this type of hazing occurred and I am waiting for the other shoe to drop and others to come forward. I can't help but wonder what kind of culture even let them think was close to being okay.

                  Unbelievable.
                  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.

                      Must admire their loyalty to their "company"....ran into a guy recently and he went bonkers at me for asking about burning up their engine.
                      "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

                          Never understood the fascination with them. Judging by the videos in YouTube they looked like a bunch of morons.
                          They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                          I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

                            Oddly, I've heard that many/most Kentland members are full-timers in a certain nearby career staffed department. Maybe they like the ability to blow off steam at 33's in ways that they can't at their career gig.

                            Of course, a goodly number of the volunteer departments in that part of the country are made up of folks who are career elsewhere. Most seem to have the same "esprit de corps."
                            Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                            Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.
