    You had better hope the JS will go to court for you, as you have just committed a FEDERAL OFFENSE, that is right as a "Law Enforcement Officer" you have violated federal law by making that post.

    According to: Law Enforcement Misconduct Statute, 42 U.S.C. 14141

    14141. Cause of action
    (a) Unlawful conduct
    It shall be unlawful for any governmental authority, or any agent thereof, or any person acting on behalf of a governmental authority, to engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement officers or by officials or employees of any governmental agency with responsibility for the administration of juvenile justice or the incarceration of juveniles that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

    What does this mean? Any LEO who speak directly against the free exercise of a constitution right is violating federal law.

    Now, to the readers, here is a LEO knowingly and willingly violating the law. How can anybody really support Sweetwater_1's position against the state and federal constitutions? Way to violate your oath there Sweetwater_1.
    I wonder why "SupportThe2nd" doesn't post so much here?

    I have argued with that sweetwater_1 ****** before, and it was the first person I thought of when I started reading the quotes. He alleges he is a Milwaukee Police officer, but I doubt it.

    I don't doubt it. There are many LEO just lurking here.

    Remember the phrase,keep your friends close and your enemies closer?

    Be careful of the PA (the disparaging epithet), he may also be our sparkle puss, or one of his arrantly errant cop wannabe buddies, and will make trouble for you for that.

    Posting here, most of the time, is "preaching to the choir." Others here are much more capable of posting the info the OC folks need. I believe my time is better spent taking the education to the flock so-to-speak.
