    Look, FireLt1951, I'm not beating this to death. It just seems like every time I read through the postings on this board, I see yet another person attacking me for things I haven't said, or distorting the things I've said. Believe me, I'm at least as tired of talking about this travesty as you are.

    By the way, I never said I was perfect, or that I was holier than anyone here. If having principles that guide my professional and personal life makes you think that I believe I'm "perfect", or that I believe that I'm somehow better than you or anyone else, than, hey...guilty as charged, I guess. Personally I find that ethics, dignity, professionalism, and standing by your principles are positive things. Maybe if more of the leaders of the DFD displayed such positive traits, there wouldn't be such problems there today. If you think it's at all appropriate at any time for a firefighter, in uniform, at a memorial service attended by family members and other concerned members of the public, to get p*ss drunk and start yelling obscenities and insults as passers by, then it's must be easy to overlook other professional lapses. I'm not willing to do that.

    And, as I thought I expressed pretty clearly in my last post, please feel free to do whatever the h*ll you want at any time - but don't disrespect the memory of dead firefighters by making a spectacle of yourself at a memorial service. Have some d*mn backbone and call a spade a spade. Some things are just wrong. And it doesn't mean that I'm attacking your department, or that I'm attacking career firefighters, or any of the other erroneous things attributed to me. It means that I strongly believe that it's wrong to show disrespect for dead firefighters. Take that any way you want it, but don't put words in my mouth or make assumptions about my views on any other subject.

    OK, flame away if you want, or just drop it. Doesn't matter to me one way or the other.

    As A last word. SgtDave and BucksEng91. I'm not sure how many years you have been attending Roscommon SgtDave or if you have ever attened BucksEng91. I have been attending this function for many many years.After the memorial, when the festivities start, I have seen many kinds of behavior, some worse than what is on this thread. I do not condone bad behavior, but people have flaws and do not always act appropriately. It has happened many times and will probably happen again. As you you noticed I said after the memorial. I hope the the Web Team decides to remove this entire thread and end it. As for SgtDave and BucksEng91. I have read many of your posts and your holier than thou attitude on many subjects leaves a lot to be desired.I hope and pray that your perfection continues through the rest of your life.

    It's done and it's over, let it lie. You have your opinions and you have quoted them to death. Let it go!!!!!!!!!! No one has accomplished anything. You're beating a dead dog. Again everyone let it go.

Look, I couldn't give a good godd*mn what you do at a parade, a muster, a party, after drill, whatever...but when it comes to honoring fallen firefighters, you need to save the drinking, rowdiness, and rudeness for another time. Don't disgrace the memory of fallen heroes by acting like complete *ssholes. It's a disservice to your brother and sister firefighters, and a slap in the face to the families of the fallen. Act with a bit of decorum and dignity, if it's the only time you do it in your life. I can't think of a better time to do so. Otherwise, hey, do whatever the h*ll you want.

    Is anyone else tired of beating the crap out of this dead horse yet? Or should I wait for another yahoo to stand up and talk about "sticking by our brothers"? It's really getting old, fellas.

    I think that firefighters have a responsibility to those that have fallen in the line of duty.
    The behavior displayed by these
    "firefighters" is inexcusable.
    Not only have they tarnished every single firefighters reputation but in doing so have disgraced themselves in public.
    They have also made a mockery of their reason for being there.
    They were there in remembrance of the fallen.
    They were disrespectful to the fallen
    There is no excuse in the world for that.

    I dont think that drinking in uniform in public is a good idea.
    As for all of you guys going after a fellow firefighter for what he believes is wrong also.
    Take a step back and look at yourselves.
    Stay safe...

    FLAME5, first stop YELLING it's not proper 'nettiquette', second, before you go spouting about someone's reading comprehension, learn to spell and/or type.
    Now I'll get back to my beer, thanks.

    JAKE,
    YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY NEEDING A LITTLE HELP WITH YOUR LITTLE PINKY, AND ARE ASKING IN A ROUND ABOUT WAY FOR HELP. MY ADVICE CUT IT OFF YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T NEED IT ANYWAY!(REMEMBER YOU MADE IT PERSONAL FIRST!)
    AND OTHERS READING INTO MY POSTS AGAIN.
    DID THEY TEACH READING COMPREHENSION WHEN YOU WERE IN SCHOOL? THESE ARE MY OPINIONS, AND I AM NOT POSTING THEM TO PASS JUDGEMENT OR MAKE ANYONE TO BE GARBAGE. SOMEHOW YOU THINK OTHERWISE, I THOUGHT I MADE THIS EVEDENT.
    I ALSO COULD CARE LESS WHERE ANYONE COMES FROM, TEACHES AT, OR IS AFFILIATED WITH. WE ARE ALL HUMAN NOTHING MORE MAKES YOU OR ME GREATER. SO THERE IS NO REASON FOR ME TO BE SCARED OF VOICING MY OPINION, IN PERSON OR OTHERWISE! AND I DO!
    THIS ALSO GOES TO SHOW HOW PERHISTORIC SOME OF YOU ARE. WHEN ONE PERSON STATES THE OPINION THAT DOES NOT FIT, IT AND THE PERSON STATING IS BASHED AND OTHERS JOIN IN TO FIT IN. GET YOUR OWN LIFES PLEASE!
    NOW SINCE THIS POST WILL PROBABLY GET A FEW UNWITTING REPLYS I WILL BE THE BIGGER MAN ( SORRY ABOUT THAT JAKE NO PUN INTENDED ) AND WALK AWAY FROM THIS SUBJECT.


    STAY SAFE AND STAY LOW(JAKE NO PUN INTENDED HERE EITHER).

    OK, here is my half a cent, since I am so poor I can't even afford to pay attention.

    First of all Flame, when you get off your high horse, be careful, the fall will probably kill you.

    As for firefighters being alcohol free. I noticed you are from Texas. Ever been to the Municipal Fire School at Texas A&M during the last week of July?

    I have, for 11 years, with the last 3 as a Rescue Instructor. Come on down and tell the 3,000+ firemen down there for a lot of learning and a good time that they need to keep from the spirits.

    And if you should survive that, maybe you can come out to the fire field and we will be glad to show you how the big boys do things and even let you play with our toys.

    Secondly, I think the insults by the Detroit Firefighters were wrong, and the fact that they were very drunk while in uniform was wrong too.

    Personnaly I think they should have used more restraint from getting snokered at a memorial service. They should have saved that for later and had a WGAS (Who Gives A Sh*t) party.

    But right or wrong, they are my brother firefighters, and I can only give my opinion, guidance, love, and a sense of direction. It is up to them to do the rest.

    Ed
