    Technology

    Can we add a forum under Public Forum for Technology? We can discuss things like computers, cell phones, video games, DVD's, things like that.

    The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.

    Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

    Law Enforcement Forums. For cops, by cops.

    While I hear what you are saying and agree that many interesting topics may ensue, this is a LEO site. Not a techno geek site. Not that being a techno geek is bad, but not here.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    I still don't get the man-law reference. So, as usual when I don't get something, I googled it. The closest I found was:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_Laws

    Man Laws (Men of the Square Table) are a series of beer commercials for Miller Lite, inspired by the unwritten codes by which men live. In the commercials, the panel discusses a given issue until it decides upon a "Man Law".

    But I still don't get how this links to technology. Can anyone enlighten me?

    Im not sure I am following you here. We have a forum for TV and Sports, we have a forum for people to post stupid pictures of seals with buckets or whatever that thing was. I am not saying we need to attract all of Microsoft's employees here but lets face it, technology is a huge part of everyday life.

    I agree with ManImBored here. We have several areas that are not LEO related. I think it would be a great addition to the site.

    Let me rephrase that...

    Unless bosses above me decide otherwise, the answer is no.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

    Why not use the tv section or the fun and games section. I don't see the need for a whole new section.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.

    If it were something like LE related Technology. IE MDT's, Less lethal, etc.

    Otherwise it's nothing that can't be discussed in general topics.

    Agreed.

    If it is passed though it should be called "Geeks with guns"

    "Stupid should hurt."
