so cops brandishing weapons in the face of bartenders
is acceptable as long as said bartenders don't get shot?
and unloading yr weapon in a bar is acceptable as long
as the ricochet doesnt hit the bus boy?
critical incedent stress?
how about i put a gun in your face and ask you to
determine my emotional balance and then correlate
the level of your offense accordingly.
RE: burnt-out drunken firefighters: if you can't handle protecting the lives of taxpayers without being drunk, i suggest you find other work.
i can't comment on what cops/firemen do in other cities as i don't live in other cities. here in NYC, most firefighters moonlight in other occupations because the pay is so shitty.
