With very few exceptions, I've had good contacts and interactions with police. I can relate to trying to keep the peace and have the same people you're trying to help take a massive shyt on you any chance they could.

I know the pressures of having to work within the confines of rules that could get you and your men hurt. I also understand how a provoked man in that position can snap and how easy it can become to lay morals down for just a moment and rage on someone.

Absolutely, they can't just ignore something like that. Since they received a call/complaint could they have asked him to move along because he was creating a public disturbance? That would've taken the wind out of the guys sails.. Public disturbances can range from doing a chicken dance in the nude while waving a dead rat in the air with a rotten pickle tied to your left ear to just sitting quietly and staring at people that go by and snarling at them when they get close..

Nothing going on this saturday, but it looks like the wife and I are headed just over the border south of Pahrump to explore a few mines. It's rumored that some areas of this mine are large enough to drive your Jeep in. Really excited about it!

People don't realize that their individual rights stop at the next person. If something you are doing is infringing on someone else's rights, you cannot continue that behavior. Even though it's an open carry state, if people complain, you are required to move along and vacate the area.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I was yelled at by a guy in a wheel chair today. He was going in and out of an office building I was also inside of. I opened the door for him his first 4 times through the door just trying to help him since they weren't assisted opening doors. The 5th time he was coming in I was being helped at a desk and didn't see him trying to come in. He rolls over to me and starts to cuss me out telling me to get off my *** and help a wounded vet. I stood there kinda shocked then I started laughing because I thought he was joking with me. Nope he wasn't, so he really starts to go nuts. Come to find out he was in a motorcycle wreck 27 yrs ago. Not wounded in action and was in the coast guard. I've never been so pissed in my life. I was tempted to tip him out of his chair.

It's the Coast Guard. Puddle Pirate.

Odd though that he would demand credit. I find it strange when people thank me for serving. "You're welcome." always sounds like a question after that.

The lava tubes are fun and I really liked the ring trail ... just wished there were more rings.

I have a feeling we'll end up somewhere else. We've been planning this for a while, but I had a slight health set back. I don't think she'll want me in an unfamiliar mine.

We'll probably end up in Goodsprings again or somewhere along the lake.

Put a bike lock on his wheelchair. Don't even try to hide it. It'll take him a few seconds to figure out what you're doing.
