    Police: Arizona church is a brothel

    To be honest though...from my personal opinion...big deal. The likely reason they came under the spotlight was because of public complaints. If they were a bit more remote in their location and nobody was complaining I'd wager they wouldn't have been worth checking the radar for. My only...

    were were you when the world stopped turning?

    I was on the way out of the station after a court appearance. I stopped in front of a television just in time to see the second plane strike.

    Im waiting for the next doper or shoplifter to claim that their religion requires them to smoke crack or steal razor blades. Lol! Sent from my DROIDX using Tapatalk

    Police: Arizona church is a brothel

    Just because they put up a sign (or website) that claims they are a religion doesn't make them one in terms of shielding otherwise illegal activity. If the money collected went to the poor or some other philanthropic endeavor than maybe you have a point. If it went into a goddesses or priestess...

    You don't have the street knowledge of prostitutes that I have...in the LEO sense that is :) They are about par for the course unless you are extremely wealthy. Sent from my DROIDX using Tapatalk

    Police: Arizona church is a brothel

    This is as much about "religion" as Asian Spas are really about "massage". I'd bet on that. Web pages of out of state "goddesses"? Pfft..that's classic escort services. "The money wasn't for sex ...it was a donation", is the classic escort rap. Like...the money was for the massage, not the...

    Police: Arizona church is a brothel

    The criminal part is simple...follow the money. If the..."goddesses" are pocketing the cash or the "temple" is taking a cut of the "donations" given to the "goddesses" as profit. it's promotion of prostitution. If you really think this is an actual religion/church and not simply a creative...

    14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg

    It's not that it's not "serious"..it's that its not new. No newer than the fact that shoplifting goes on at your local mall. The Army is HUGE. The military is a society within a society with many of the exact same issues...including crime and criminal investigation. You will no more be able to...

    Police: Arizona church is a brothel

    This was a creative cover for an escort service...nothing more. If you want to discuss the legalization of prostitution thats one thing, but if you seriously think that this is a legitimate religious issue I have a few bridges to sell you.

    14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg

    My money is on a small group of knucklehead soldiers who own their own personal weapons and wanted some ammo. Someone working in the ammo shed will be found responsible.

    14,000 rounds of ammunition missing from Fort Bragg

    1,000 rounds fit in a box you could sit on your lap. 14K is about what you would pull for 1 company to range qual. Not a piddling amount, but not a huge quantity. My PD has way more ammo than that sitting in our armory.

    No temples that haven't been extinct for over 1000 years. People stating that they are the inheritor of some extinct religion so that they can have prostitution are full of crap.

    Peyote is legal in some Native American ceremonies because there is a historic/cultural precedent. Would we allow human sacrifice? This is prostitution under the guise of religion. Book em Danno.

    To Protect, Serve and Collect Revenue.

    It's been a while since I've worked any traffic, but our units came with the tuning forks. Any radar enforcement had to be logged on a radar sheet that included the speed registered by the tuning forks. If the readout matched the fork speed there wasn't much to attack.

    If one thinks about it..were not a large portion of famous explorers nothing but guys on government backed private enterprises?

    Although..I hear that the private "Space X" craft is supposed to be getting up to the space station before the end of November. http://www.dailytech.com/SpaceX+Dragon+Test+Flight+to+ISS+Scheduled+for+November+30/article22473.htm

    To Protect, Serve and Collect Revenue.

    I actually have a speed estimation cert card. States that I can accurately estimate speed to within 5 mph. So in a case like this, sure there is some defensive "wiggle room". In the case where I charged a guy with reckless driving for 70 in a 30....without radar....that defense didn't work...

    To Protect, Serve and Collect Revenue.

    I would say "that depends" Bill. In a case like this where we are talking a 5-10 MPH difference I can see where attacking the radar equipment could work, but (in my state at least) radar is simply a verification (or is supposed to be) of a visual speed estimation. All radar is supposed to be is...

    Will we ever go back to the Moon?

    Until theres an Economic reason to I don't think so. For all the "spirit of exploration" hype...throughout history humans move around for basic human reasons, escape political pressures, search for wealth, gold, wars, etc. We are not going to have the will to make that sort of effort without...

    To Protect, Serve and Collect Revenue.

    I was sort of with you up to that little ditty Bob. Writing for 5 over is a tad petty IMO, but did you actually use the "why don't you go out and fight REAL crime" cannard??? Many of those coppers are assigned speed enforcement duty. And like it or not, traffic enforcement is part of our job...

    Prefixing Your Nationality?

    No need to get insulting Bill. As a matter of fact I often complain that I wish that my Father HAD been taught how to speak Italian and that he would have taught it to me. I recall distinctly my great/Grandparents and other relatives talking Italian. Typically if they were discussing me. The...

    What IS racism?

    I think that specifics and the hesitation to discuss them are part of the problem......should an employer be forced to hire someone who refuses to speak "correct English"? Should dress codes be illegal?

    Considering I knew my Great grandmother (who came over on "the boat") and my grandfather..and they both told me that english was to be spoken unless it was between family members. Ill take them at their word Bill.

    Prefixing Your Nationality?

    When my Italian side of the family came here they actually changed their names to sound "more American" and refused to even teach their children Italian becaused they believed back then that they were now Americans. They were no less "Italian", Roman Catholic, Good food (and wine) eating people...

    What IS racism?

    What..specifically is this culture we are talking about though Bill? The right to speak Ebonics in the work place? Baggy jeans and sideways ball caps at the bank window? What? What are the THINGS that would be an insult or a problem to give up?
