    Meaning what exactly? Do you justify his involvement in moonshining because he chooses to not be a mechanic?

    Either way, he is associating his firefighter involvement with his partaking in moonshining.

    Not a good image for the fire service.
    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.

      What group of volunteers is making a mockery of the fire service?


      There is a fictional show on TV that advertises as "real life". The actors in the show have lives outside their "acting" gig. One of them also happens to be a volunteer firefighter in his community.

      Oh wait...do you believe the show is true?


      You do realize Backdraft (with the paid FF arsonist) was fake also...don't you?

        Couldn't tell you since I've never seen it. I'll let you tell us.

        I also realize that people have a different perspective on real life people being filmed being involved in an illegal activity (that claims to have insight into the activity) and a movie that completely based on a fictional story.

        Do you know the difference. This question makes me wonder about your perspective.

          If it was a show about serial arsonists (real or not), I'd have a problem with him representing himself as a real firefighter during a show that represents itself as real....

          Just caught the promo, haven't seen the actual show. However, it made it real clear that it was moonshiners breaking the law and the law trying to catch them.

            It appears the volunteer in question is re-enacting his exploits from years ago. He was a moonshiner by admission 5 years ago.

            http://starcasm.net/archives/136296

            SC's point about he wouldnt be allowed to be an employee on his department holds true for our department as well. If he was doing felony level crime 5 years ago, is now re-enacting it on tv and is making a connection between that and our department there is no way he would continue to be a member.

            SC's generalization about all volunteers is way off though. Because this guy does this, all volunteers are unprofessional? Do you make the same generalizations about race?

              Watched 2 episodes last night while doing paperwork. He did stop by the firehouse during one to return bolt cutters he borrowed.

              Apparently, according to what the show stated about stock car racing getting it's "roots" from Moonshiners....NASCAR is guiilty of promoting illegal activities as well.

              Certainly explains your view then...

                Don't really care what NASCAR does or doesn't promote. It isn't tasked with providing public safety and trust.

                  Is there anything in your area that isn't illegal?

                  Would you be happier if he ran a topless club?

                    There are a lot things that aren't illegal where I live. I'm going to go out on a limb and state that is more the norm everywhere.

While it was obvious by the fact that the camera crew was present that things weren't as bad as portrayed, I still thought much of the situation was accurate (location, conditions, etc). Turns out much of it is staged and acted. Case in point the episode where they were in the "North Woods" of Maine yet walk the 2 miles to the coast. Turns out it was filmed at a couple state parks.
                      The fire episode was actually filmed on Camp Minden, which we serve as the fire department for.

                      During the filming the "stars" and the crew was escorted by several fire personnel and always had a way out should things have gone south.

                        According to the show, he is employed full-time as a mechanic.

                          It makes no difference, it don't make any difference to me what a man does for a living, you understand. But your business is a little dangerous.
