    My First Post

    Hi all!

    Well a little about me, I'm 27, just finished my law enforcement education here in the frozen tundra of Minnesota. I went to a community college that's growing in accolades, but still treats their LE students the worst out of any segment. Our DT classes including PT were done in a conference room.

    AngryBassets showed me this site and I joined up. I'm also a refugee from CopTalk.

    NOT a cop though!! In MN we pay for all our schooling/training, take the POST test, THEN get the privledge of applying. Very hard process to say the least. I'm currently going to the local stepchild school in the U of MN system, working on my Accounting degree. Yes Accounting, not Crim. Everyone up here goes for Crim, and the accounting training is helping with my being able to investigate things better. Plus if I never get a cop job, I won't turn down the money!

    I warn you, sometimes I'm the King of lame or subtle humor, especially pop culture references.

    And you have to look close, but I'm damn near in the middle of the pic, bald head, red ropes on the shoulder. Look for the guy front/center, and go 2 back from him.

    Hello and welcome to LEF!

    I couldn't help but notice that 2 of you were wearing the red rope on your shoulder as you have mentioned and I also noticed that 4 others were wearing blue ropes on their shoulder. Can you please explain the significance and the difference between the two? Thanks!

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    There is more than just the one not at ease.

    And in the states a lot of Academies have uniforms even if they are not on a specific department.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.

    I think your pulling our leg. Unless your talking about the dark haired man with his hands on his hips. His hair looks just fine to me.

    After taking another look at the picture, did any of you notice that guy second from the end in the 1st row on the left of the picture? Look how tall he is compared to the others. Look how long his legs are. So how tall is he?

    BTW, Peter you look very nice in your class picture.

    I honestly can't even tell who that is.

    Re: hair, it passed school regs. The instructor you see in his dress uniform was our Uniform Torturer. Former USMC DI, and Honor Guard member. I got dinged by him for my gig line being 1/4" off.

    Re: him not standing the right way, I have no idea, since obviously I was 2 rows in front.

    Color Assignment:
    Blue Ropes--Squad A Leader/Asst. Leader
    Red Ropes--Squad B Leader/Asst. Leader
    Black Ropes--Squad C Leader/Asst. Leader
    Green Ropes--Squad D Leader/Asst. Leader

    About Alexandria, I tried man I tried!! I couldn't afford rent out there. I lived at my pop's since it was like 5min to school.

    One thing I learned that day, doing an about face on wet grass is NOT an easy task.

    Yeah Im joking of course but its pretty Obvious they are raw, look at the lines!!!!

    The hair was also a joke, over here its easier to just shave your head than actually try and be on the button with lenght, etc.

    I think the tall guy looks taller because of a mix between camera angle and the short ass beside him, Jesus he must be only about my height!

    LOL! I figured you had to be. I agree they are not standing in an upright position. I have no idea what some of them are trying to see.

    That guy I think is very tall. His head appears to be much higher then the others. His legs appear to pass several of the others waist lines.

    What's the matter with my avy? How could a pic like that spoil your dinner? I think it is nice. What's the matter with you? LOL!

    Well, you know Norm's has an avy that the men on the forum quite possibly appreciate, so after being asked to do so I posted one for the ladies of LEF.

    Enjoy it while it is there Ladies!

    Don't worry Garda, I'll be using my St. Patty's one for a while. Then another for Easter. Unless of course you can find another for the ladies we could view.

    Oh yeah!!!! I have another for the ladies. NICE!!!!!!!!!!! Lots of muscles.
