Wow! I can’t believe someone would really ride that all loaded up like that.
I am not and have never been a LEO. My avatar is in honor of my friend, Dallas Police Sargent Michael Smith, who was murdered along with four other officers in Dallas on 7.7.2016.

Now why didn't I think of that ! Maybe because I have some sort of common sense.
