“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

A new one

Despite what many people think, we don't often hear original insults or commentary in law enforcement. Yes people, the "He's over here, arrest him!" joke when we walk into a business and you point at a coworker thing got old about ten minutes after Sir Peel published his doctrine.

But tonight I heard a new one, from a customer who was drunk, under the influence of narcotics, and with mental health issues - yet still put together numerous times in her string of insults "You burned pieces of fried bacon cops" - we were all quite impressed.

Hadn't heard that one before. Kind of made the whole night worth it.
