    Are Cops Aware Of The Extreme Hatred And Anger Growing Towards Them? I am posting an article below about a man who went in to a police department and opened fire on the police. At the bottom of the article is a section were anyone with a facebook can comment. All the comments, every single one, is in support of the shooter not the police.

    Are cops even aware of this?

    Here are two of the comments on the link provided:

    1. I think there is an exciting fundamental shift in this nations desires to not be “policed” and extorted for every arbitrary BS “law. We no longer consent. You work for us. You answer to us. If we have to, we’ll do what our founders did. (16 likes)

    2. Too bad he didn’t kill any cops, the corrupt lapd needs to be disbanded by we the people, its perfectly within our constitutional and revolutionary rights just as our founders intended.
    the criminal element? These people are not “the criminal element” these are normal everyday people who are tired of seeing their fellow human beings being kidnapped, harassed, and oppressed by this dangerous gang.
    If you cops would respect human rights and natural law then maybe you wouldn’t see citizens come into your place with an intent to kill. Instead you guys mindlessly enforce every bullshit law these criminal politicians come up with. Just like the Nazi’s.

      I read a quote on tumblr the other day that said something along the lines of ” why is it that when a police car pulls up next to me i feel more threatened then protected?” ive also heard several stories of people who wanted to become cops, began an internship or started their new job, and realized how corrupt their local police force was and were so horrified they got the fuck out of the position. i know people who had their arms broken by their parents as children, or were beaten black and blue by a spouse, and when the police showed up to their house they shrugged it off and just said it was legal punishment or just a spat. i got in a yelling match with a donut cop (the guy could barely walk) about what constitutes abuse to kids- he said to my face that even with bruises, if the child is not so frightened into hysterics that they cant function they havent been abused. not all cops are like this, but i firmly believe that the ones that are know exactly what their doing, and are living some sort of power fantasy. they know they are hated, and they know why. i can absolutely see how people would have that much hate for the police so this doesnt surprise me at all. what makes me sad though is that for every police officer who saves a life by putting his or her own in danger, and legitimately wants to make their towns safer, theres a handful of others on the news using excessive force against minors holding wiimotes (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/georgia-teen-holding-wii-remote-shot-cops-front-door-family-lawyer-article-1.1619842) or letting people they have a grudge against burn to death (recently watched the documentary “let the fire burn”. i heard cops laughing as people burned to death in a basement). innocent hard working people could have been killed in this shooting, and the response is joy that someone got hurt. this is just messed up on so many levels and while i feel for the injured officer and think trying to take someones life is awful and in no way think this was right, i also feel for the people who see police forces as legal terrorists to the degree that their happy one was injured – ill bet anyone a million dollars most of them have a life story they could tell you that would explain every ounce of hate.

    First Skating Competition – Any Tips? :)? I’m having my first competition next week!
    Is there anything that I should know in advance?
    I’m 14 and I’m going to be competing with 4 others: a range of girls 7-15 years, so basically I’m the second oldest..
    I know that the competition is not a big deal and all, to me it’s just like the winter show. But for some reason I’m still nervous about it 😛
    My level is ”no test” because I haven’t taken any freestyle tests yet.
    Do you have any tips for me.. Just anything about competing!

    Also some hairstyles that would be age appropriate for me? The music is very classy, elegant, and smooth, sharp at some points. I’m not a very good hairstylist and neither is my mom. I’d like to know some easy and different hairstyles that come out looking nice. All I can do is a messy braid lol and I can’t even do a messy bun! 🙁 My mom can do a slightly-neater messy braid and put together a very loose bun using a donut bun thingy.. But I want my hair to be really tight and supported so I don’t worry about it falling apart when I jump and spin.

    Another thing is I have bad eye sight… I wear glasses when I need to see the board at school, but I don’t ever wear them on the ice because I know they’ll fall off. I don’t have trouble seeing super far away, but I can’t see details.
    For example, during a MIF test, I can’t see when the judges are ready for me to start the next part of the test and I just stand there awkwardly squinting and staring their direction… Until one of them starts waving their arms like crazy.. Anyway. Is there anything I’d have trouble with without my glasses? During my recitals and shows I’ve been in, I’ve used it to my advantage because I can’t see the faces of the people on the crowd, so I pretend it’s just all smiles 🙂
    Maybe that’s a good thing, because I’m super shy..

    I’ve read that laces have broken for people in competitions. Should I purchase an extra pair of laces? My laces are pretty much gray, but then again my boots will be covered. As far as I’m concerned, I want to know if spare laces are a MUST-HAVE and where and what brand or size to get them.

    Lastly, how early should I be at the rink? 1-2 hours? More?

    Yeah so as you can see I’m pretty much new to the world of competition, but I hope one day I get really comfortable with it and I have a lot of fun! 🙂

      Oh, your first competition! How exciting!

      First, RELAX! If you try to think of all the things that could go wrong, you’ll drive yourself insane!

      Don’t worry about skating against kids younger than you. It’s always going to happen. When I stepped out onto the ice for my first competition, I was 22, skating against a ten year old. Or, to put it in perspective, Evgeni Plushenko is 31 years old. Jason Brown is 19 years old. They will go head-to-head in Sochi.

      I suck at doing my hair, but even I can do a bun with a donut. Look up some videos on Youtube. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Secure it with a hairnet (I use two hairnets because my hair is very thick) and bobby pins (but make sure the pins can’t come out) and a TON of hairspray. (You can even get glittery hairspray.)

      I wear my glasses all the time – practicing, testing, competing – but if you skate normally without them, don’t wear them. There’s no need. You’ll get announced onto the ice so you’ll know when it’s time to get on and they’ll only play your music when you hit your start position. There are no signals or anything that you need to watch for. Just make sure when you bow at the end of your program, always bow to the judges first – it’s good manners!

      (Did you know Jason Brown also has very bad eyesight? At Skate America and Nationals, he couldn’t see his scores when they were put on the screen. He didn’t know until they were announced!)

      I think it is always good to have an extra pair of laces or two on hand. Laces breaking is really really rare, especially if you’re only doing low-level stuff. I don’t like the concept of grey laces but then I skate with my boots showing. Your pro shop should have them and be able to recommend a size and type.

      Here is a list of things I recommend you take in your skate bag/additional bag on the day:

      – Spare laces (I have three pairs, but that’s because they live permanently in my skate bag)
      – Spare tights (one pair at least – I take two because I have a terrible track record with tights)
      – Spare bobby pins
      – Hairspray (but please only do it outside)
      – Spare hair nets
      – Small sewing kit (in case of costume malfunctions – some skating clubs have one on hand, and you probably won’t need it)
      – Makeup kit (but don’t slather it on! Subtle is nice!)
      – SPARE COPIES OF MUSIC! I can’t even begin to tell you how important that is.

      What time you get to the rink depends on what kind of person you are. I always get to the rink when the competition starts, even if I’m not skating for hours, because I just love watching skating. But it might make you more nervous. Also, you want to make sure you warm up properly and stretch. Warm up areas might get crowded on competition day. But you do want to be there at least an hour beforehand in case the competition is running early – if that warmup group goes on and you’re not part of it, you’re out!

      And most of all, just remember to have FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Can I Be Forced To Stay Once I Am Clocked Out? I work for a Dunkin Donuts franchise. At the end of each shift we are required to count our tips on the property. We must clock out to do this, or get written up and possibly terminated. I understand not being paid to count my own money. But I can just as easy count my money at home. Some nights it can take up to 40 minutes of counting, figuring, and dividing tips amongst all employees. I am just as willing to pick up my tips the next day… especially when it can take so long. I have been late to both my second and third jobs because I haven’t been allowed to leave. I just think that if I’m forced to stay, even when some one else is counting, than I should be paid for that time. Am I right?

    • Curator says:

      No and in fact it is against company policy and the National Labor Board to be on the property after you have clocked out. Unless you are paid by salary.
