    IAM Rand, you have your own soldier?

    All have is a gardener and live-in house cleaner.

    It would be if I was your background investigator. It shows a mind set incompatible with police work in a representative democracy.

    I personally saw 2 P/O's from 2 different PD's do a gang handshake when they met up to assist us on an investigation. We kept our info close to the vest and went hunting another day without their help.

    That is frightening.

    In the photo of my academy class, one of my classmates (15yrs ago) is flashing a gang sign.

    Fortunately he didn't make it out of Field Training, as he told a UC officer, that he was hitting on in a club, that it didn't matter she was a dealer.

    Apparently it was some big DEA trafficking investigation.

    If you have to get a tat, get one after you're hired.

    I got this from Urban dictionary, not sure how accurate it is but what stands out to me is 'refuse to comply with laws'. I can already hear a defense attorney asking 'and Officer Celtics 009 what other laws do you refuse to comply with?

    3 percenters
    A loose affiliation of like minded Americans who vow to refuse to comply with laws that violate the second amendment right to keep (own) and bear (carry) firearms. The name "3 percenter" comes from the fact that only 3 percent of colonial British subjects took up arms against the King during the revolutionary war. Three percent of the population was enough to overthrow a government and win independence.
    "We are the 3 percenters, we will not comply, we will not be disarmed."


    Try refusing to comply with that law in an airport.

The Loyalist population (or Torries) was between 15 and 20%. They did not field more troops either in combined numbers throughout the war or during any year of the war, especially late war. Loyalists were very active in the South and they did field large numbers of combatants at Kings Mountain, the Battle of Camden and the Battle of Cowpens, but that is not what the web site hack is referring to (and people thought that studying history in graduate school wouldn't pay off).

    3) Stupid idea

    I don't know where you live but if you become a cop you will have to enforce local gun laws. Most states have them.

    Thank you for your service. That said, if after reading the replies given in this thread, you still decide to get that tattoo.. good.

    By all means, filter yourself out.

    Well, based on the comments of my colleague's you've gotten some good advice. Best of all, it was free. That said, here's a little more. Tattoo policy(s) are set by individual departments, and it is those standards by which any tats you have would be judged.

    If you're tat free, my suggestion is that you stay that way. You might also well consider the advice my colleague gave you concerning his FTO's thoughts concerning these matters. Some pretty good advice there.
