In these two posts, you make it sound like the POC are a bunch of no account, show up when they feel like it, moochers, that are going to play sick, or be out partying and then when Sockey posts this post
Now were you stating that "Absolutely" towards the "don't know how many are going to show up" or the
part of it?
You seem to be both for and against them, in the same breath.
I guess I will have to explain again for you Fluffy. The point is about using POC versus using cross trained police officers. While POC and volunteer firefighters should be commended for their brave actions fighting fires whether for pay or not, the point is that some on this thread believe that the police officers should not, can not, or will not be able to do what they are being trained to do. My point is that while it has been shown that it takes four POC to get one to show up at a fire (I had stated five but received a text message clarifying it was really four) having police officers already on duty assures that they will be available for action. There is not worry that their "other" job will get in the way. They will not be away on vacation. They will not be incapacitated due to other factors.
To further clarify for you, the absolutely comment was in response to POC being commended.
Once I get the information about POC, I will be sure to get it to you, since then you can CLAIM to have opposing data. You could simply provide yours if you have it, but since I am about 20 miles east of you, I don't have access to mine at the current time. Of course there are several items you were to prove before that never materialized.
Hope you enjoyed your porterhouse. We had smoked beef brisket and Heineken, and then a nice ride on the lake.
