They could have been shot.

… seriously?

No shit. It comes with the job. Is it scary? Obviously, ask anyone here who was a No. 1 or No. 2 man on an assault team. It’s a real gut check.

But that’s your job. You knew the risks when you signed up. And if you were properly trained (judging by the pics of this department, I doubt they get any training), then you should be capable of compartmentalizing those fears until after you assaulted the objective and performed your duty.

… pathetic.

Suddenly I identify as a woman.

Fishing is proven to be therapeutic for my period so I need to take some time off to take care of this.

Those guys were the worst. Many of them were trying to pretend they were operating when the extent of getting wet for them was greasing up their hair or cue ball head. They also loved loading up their cargo pockets with those tiny Rip-Its cans.

The real scary guys who legit had been there - done that all looked like the dad who would rather be mowing his lawn or wrenching on his truck. The guys who never left the wire when they were in were trying to look like some Hollywood CAG boy.

They are fat and weak as fuck looking.

Body armor can’t hide moon face, soft features and double chins.

After leaving Active Duty and wasting a few years in the Guard, I noticed that a lot of people wearing the tactical gear outside of SOF units (or very specialized roles) didn’t fall into a billet that rated it.

I remember seeing this 11C (mortarman) who carried around a bunch of knives including this big fucker that he wore on his waist in the back. Like some sort of rear buttpack item. Massive fucking thing. He called it his Rambo knife. If he ever needed to use any of that stuff, it wouldn’t have helped him any. He also bought a Crye JPC and some other tacticool gear that really didn’t help him (as he wasn’t even jump qualified) and they were a Guard unit that just returned from deploying a year prior. Dude legit spent thousands to look like he operated when he never attended any schools after graduating from OSUT.

The reason we wore the cool guy stuff was because our mission set benefited from it. Also, it came out of the USASOC/USSOCOM budget and we weren’t paying for it. When someone hands you some $350+ combat tops and expensive combat pants, a nice plate carrier, cool Ops-Core helmet and some fancy boots, you don’t ask questions. Plus you’re actually trained to utilize that stuff for it’s intended purpose.

When you’re kitting up to sit around the TOC or hide out away from where the action is going on, that’s just sad. You don’t look cool, you just end up looking like a dick. One of the most badass guys I knew when I was in was still rocking some gear he had from the 90s and didn’t subscribe to the “gear makes the man” mantra at all.

You could literally hold her back with one hand while she swings, like they did in those cartoons we watched as kids.

I think a mixture of all 3.

Growing up many of my friends went into the fire department, military or police department because they wanted to serve their country or community. It wasn’t about the benefits or pension. Sure that came with it, but that’s not what we were focused on. Come 9/11, many of those on the fence decided to commit to it after hearing about family members or neighbors who ran into the Towers knowing full well that they were going to die doing so. Of those in my graduating class who enlisted, all but 1 went into the Infantry. I followed shortly after. A good number of us picked up Option 40 contracts because we wanted to guarantee that we would be in combat.

Nowadays it’s all about milking the system. Not doing anything that requires balls and just riding a desk until retirement.

Find yourself a nice desk job, keep your nose clean and walk out in however-many years with a nice pension.

That wasn’t how the kids I grew up with were raised. Hell, I didn’t even know what a pension was until I was older.

It’s hard to respect people who will run from danger when they LARP as if they are some sort of hero behind a badge. Don’t get me wrong, shit is scary as fuck and many times I wondered why I subjected myself to that shit. Sane people don’t intentionally put themselves in that situation, but when you sign up to do that, you do so knowing full-well what the risks are.

These fucks deserve no respect. They did nothing to earn it. They just got off on exerting their power over parents who just wanted their kids to be safe.

“Searched for key”

Now I don’t know about these cops, but when I served, we blew doors off hinges, kicked them in, rammed them or shot out whatever was securing them. And let me tell you, I can’t think of one guy I had the pleasure of serving with who wouldn’t have dropped everything and ran directly towards the shooting to do something.

If they are going to LARP as us with their fancy high speed Ops-Core helmets, plate carriers and gearqueer getup, they can at least act the part. Especially when kids lives are involved.

Unless of course they… were told to let it play out the way it did… 🤔

Bunch of fucking gear queers.

They get all the fancy equipment yet lack the training (and balls) to use any of it.

Judging by the looks of a few of them, stuffing their faces while the skirt struggles to reach anything in her locker.

he himself has 3somes when his ex has his son for the weekend.

I wouldn’t call beating off while his current lady gets dicked down by her bull a “threesome”.

These are just their pets. You have the gays, the trannies, blacks and browns and Ukrainians.

They think that they are going to be drawing tranny furry porn for The Party.

It’s sad that they seriously believe that to be the case.

For a while my wife was considering commissioning and pursuing Civil Affairs once she picked up 1LT/CPT.

Her grandfather, her father and I all served in SOF units during wartime. All of us were very quick to jump in and talk her out of it. She’s glad she avoided that mess.

Do you remember Action Park circa 80s/90s?

Teaches kids that life is fun and dangerous.

generally obese women who never grew up.

I thought I was going crazy for noticing this as well.

When my parents and I went to Disneyworld in the 1990s, it was a completely different place. Like you said, tons of families. My mom enjoyed Epcot because all of the different country sections. My dad and I thought the parades and stuff they had at the different parks were super cool with the costumes they made. Sure there were a few lines, but it wasn’t anything unmanageable. I can’t remember seeing hordes of fat women unless they were kids moms.

Nowadays it attracts the fat “princess” who is convinced she belongs in a fairytale. I had a manager at a previous company who had tons of Disney stuff on her desk. She was in her 30s, divorced and fat. Thought that her small dogs were her children. These are the women that camp out at the Disney store or get into character in the office (for some reason). Just like you said, absolutely childish.

Once the wife and I were running errands and decided to hop in a McDonalds drive-thru line to grab two coffees. In front of us was a beat to shit car. I mean 90s or early 2000s Camry or something with dents all over, a broken windshield, mismatched tires, all of that junk. This thing was the type of car one takes off the road and puts on one of those tactical ranges where you can use cars for cover (or even shoot at them).

The driver had multiple Disney annual pass-holder decals on the trunk of that car.

When I was in the Army:

Oh you’re upset because you don’t have a Ranger Tab yet and the Tabs are making you feel like a bitch? How about you sack the fuck up and haze yourself until you realize you ain’t shit!

Oregon. Not Portland but near it.

This happened in our apartment parking lot - “luxury apartments” they claimed. This was also before the massive jump in car theft that is happening these last few years. What’s funny was a year or so later I picked up a project car, Honda Civic, that I was going to do an engine swap into. Parked it, not two hours later I see a group of kids trying to break into it with a screwdriver. They only stopped when they noticed it was a standard, not an automatic. Totally fucked the locks though (which I was replacing anyways).

I am now with a regular auto insurance company, however I am still paying more to insure a cheap common sedan (as a married male over 30 with zero accidents or tickets) than I have each time I had expensive performance automobiles. This is with discounts included and shopping for a good rate.

Happened at a company I worked at years ago.

One coworker of mine who was a manager was banging two other employees. One was the HR girl. Of the three involved in that, two got fired. The HR girl remained employed.

They did that to me after my car was stolen.

New (<1 year old) car, lot with cameras on private property.

Geico pretty much immediately dropped me as I was high risk and for a while the only companies that would insure me were the sketchy ones that target low income customers.
