    What can we say, we're incorrigible. If you saw, what Big saw, you'd be incorrigible too.

    The problem with that is you will then get reposting of threads and two discussions of the same topic in different places. Furthermore, that'll just lead to more disk space usage and bandthwidth burning...and thus more cost to the site owner.

    I say non - verifieds should be able to post in ask a cop to an extent. I have knowledge of law enforcement, Not enough as a police officer would but I have some! I can also provide questions for help during testing!!!

    I agree. I know that if I ask a question, I would definitely prefer that a cop is the one giving the advice. But then I guess that's why you guys verify them on this site which I think is cool.

    It is not a clear cut matter in my opinion. I think on OCCASSION civilians have good input. They might understand the question better/have a different spin on it. Also, they may want to ask a slightly different spin on the same question. So, I think that we should have the ability to respond but that the mod's should keep tight control over what is said. If a non-verified is giving advice etc it should probably be edited.

    Make the Ask a Cop section a moderated board. Verified LEO's will be able to post at will, but any non-verified users will have their posts moderated. This means they will right out the thread and instead of it being posted, it will go to the moderator queue where a mod will authorize it. It will make a little more work for the mods, but it will keep the forum well organized and will discourage trolls if they have to have a mod approve their thread first...

    Remember those pics you sent me earlier? Yeah you sent the good ones.

    The only reason I'd want to answer is if somebody is asking about noise complaints. That is what I deal with on my job so I know the process inside and out. Other than that, I figure the officers know just a little bit better.

    If nothing else, it makes for interesting reading on some oppinions, they can always be corrected with a reply. I think if, for example a lawyer wants to post his oppinion, then it can add to the discussion. Then we can slam him.

    Thumbs up

    I've noticed on other forums that cops are sometimes shy about responding till one of us "unwashed masses" start spurting forth our opinions.

    Doesn't seem to be a problem at this site, though

    I think ACE is on to something here with the moderated posts. It is really a good idea. You all should listen up, he's been doing this for awhile.

    Ok,......how 'bout this.

    A "Ask a Non-Verified" section????

    Because this BS about "they should be able to post to an extent" and "yeah, sometimes it's a good idea to have civilian input" etc etc is not going to work. Yeah, "sometimes" it's good to have civvie input, but, sometimes it isn't. Trolls would have a field day. I say, as I've already said, no, LEO's only answering LEO questions. Otherwise, it'll turn into an annoying bitch fest. And, if their posts are gonna be moderated, it'll just be more work for the mods. I think an Ask a Civilian forum, or something similar would be a good idea.

    Sorry I do not agree. You never know when a "civilian" may have a new twist on something and may get an LEO thinking in a different direction to come up with a solution to a problem AND what about those civilians who were at one time LEO's? They definitely could have some valid input.

    This is why I suggested to change the name of "Ask-A-Cop" to "Questions" or "Ask-A-Person" or something like that...This way whoever wants to answer a question can and since it is stated that we are "Verified LEO" then the person wanting answers will know the credibility of the answer.

    Hell, this is only my opinion and opinions are like assholes...everyone has one

    I agree with the ones saying we should. Many times, there are topics I could have answered, but couldn't. Somebody mentioned O.com, but as mentioned, they don't do verifications, so anyone can pretend to be a cop. Here, with verification, you know who is a cop, and who is a garbage collector
