    question

    It sounds like a silly question but I would like to find out whether or not it is true from the people who would know. I have heard that people tend to cause more crime and violence and do more crazy things when it is a full moon for some reason. I have no idea why though. but I just wanted to ask if this is something that any of you have observed during your time in law enforcement.

    thanks,

    longevity

    Yes it seems to be that way. I think its just because there is more light outside so people tend to stay up more since they can see, and when idiots stay up they drink or do dope, which = going to jail

    Morons are morons, no matter what the moon does. It's just easier to see them in a full moon.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Yes, there is a connection.......especially the crazy part.

    Any cop will tell you it's fun to work at night, especially when the moon is full and bright. I know it always seemed more active. Why?
    As today's police officers you are not unlike your counterparts of years past. You are an elite group of select members, a brotherhood of highly trained professionals, who are called upon to protect your community in a time of need. Guardians for safety. Being a police officer is not for the faint of heart. You must be honest, trustworthy and fearless in the face of evil. You are being watched everyday. Represent yourself, your department and the shield, for it should always be the embodiment of all that is good and justly. You are the thin blue line. Be proud, be tough and be safe.

    Full moon + payday (or welfare checks) + holiday weekend + change in weather (and when it all happens at the same time) = "Gonna be a whooopazz weekend!"

    Seen it waaaaay too many times to doubt that it happens.
