  • Pig usernames

    WHO are the ppl on this board who choose usernames such as "PIG"
    "OINK"
    "PIGSKIN" ?

    who are they ?

    these names are the terms used by ppl that Police Officers come into contact with, who choose to express their derision of officers of the law

    and yet we have members on this board WHO CHOOSE usernames akin to that exact derision

    There's a theory that if you embrace a word or words used to degrade you (by profession, or skin color, or sexual orientation, or whatever), that you weaken any power it might hold against you.

      Crazy, I was going to say the same thing, but you said it so well !!! I agree with that 100%.

      Do you smell bacon cooking? LOL... just call me bacon lover!!!
      Have you ever noticed? Anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac.

        Since none of the Mods qappear to be around right now.......

        Oink is a fairly new member that is in the process of applying with LE agencies.

        Pig and Pigskin are long-time and respected members of this forum, who are LEO's with quite a bit of experience behind them.

        So, what's the problem?

          It's just part of cops' humor.

              Thanks JKT. It is part of the humor and a lot of what Crazy said, too. Wow, I agreed with Crazy, LOL. Besides, I've been called much worse than Pig.

                  Well said! I often joke that I'm a 'RAT', But truth is criminals consider being a rat worthy of the death penalty. But you can be sure I'll help the cops put away a scumbag any chance I get. And then I will call myself a RAT!
                  I'm proud of it and I would be proud to be called a Pig! [Wink]

                  Thanx for the support! [Wink] , But I am not currently applying with LE agencies...
                  (And here in Canada can only apply with 1 at a time )
                  But you can be sure I'm not doing anything else with my life. Period. Ever. I'm not gonna waste my life. And yes, Anything else would be a waste of my life because I would always regret it.
                  Just start calling me Oink now. It doesn't sound at all bad. It sounds like a compliment like being called a Rat.

                    And for us cops (full-time, part-time, reserve, whatever) PIG means:

                    Pride
                    Integrity
                    Guts

                      It means the same thing to alot of ppl OUTSIDE LE.
                      They might not be keen to say it to you, they don't want to give you the wrong impression, but if they say it with a smirk they propably are seeing the same IRONY in it that the rest of us are. Ironic is funny. When I hear someone say "They're all Pigs", I smile, nod and imagine how long their criminal record must be. [Eek!]

                      Pride, Integrity, Guts. - I like that. [Wink]

                        OK Chiefy, you got your reply from members. And as a moderator, I will echo what they said.

                        I feel sorry for ANY officer who has a skin so thin that something like this is upsetting to them. I've been called one hell of a lot worse in my life than pig.

                        Besides that,"Pigs is Prutty!" and don't ya ever forget it! [Wink]

                        When I was a substation commander, on my wall was a framed picture of a bore hog, with sergeants strips. Under the picture was the inscription "A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER!"

                          I've even got a big ol' stuffed pig in the back window of my police car.
