    Very nice work here, but helping law enforcement is inexcusable.

    @nate
    if you don’t like what law enforcement does, change the laws. you can vote, can’t you?

    I’ll be at the polls, but the options here in the States are a pig in lipstick and one in lip gloss if you look past the media frenzy. Choosing the lesser of two evils is no democracy.

    @nate: not all cops are pigs, and not all criminals are good guys…believe it or not!

    @CatsAreGods’s reply to nate

    you must not live in the USA. Nate was talking about our two presidential candidates.

    @nate: this may someday save your life or someone you know. On the other hand, not following “street” protocol can get you ambushed. What good is a picture if I won’t confess?

    Palin is very low key every since she was caught using public email instead of government. This the same technology that locked up our mayor over text messages. TV series like the “Wire” teaches you to meet in person and if you have to call criminmals, use pictures that only 2 parties recognize.

    This guy has a way of not getting to the point only matched by a relative of mine, and anybody that has the tenacity to sit through this whole thing and can certify he/she isn’t insane gets a hats off from me.
    Sorry to sound so negative but come on, I hope the guy gets on some course himself from the money he makes to learn to communicate better.
