Fringe kills me. The opening scene is a partially open door and the sound of a long bong hit being taken. The mad doctor absolutely makes the show.
In related news, my buddy, also a cop and the guy who linked me into writing for 93 Games Studio, is trying to get another gaming group together.
He had some success, but then learned from his point of contact that one of the players of this new group smokes marijuana. They claim the smoker has a prescription and medical card, but as LE, it's a red flag. Not that the fellow is a criminal, but why risk it? I'm not against medical marijuana either. I think it has it's place.
The problem is that if, heaven forbid, one was exposed to second-hand smoke and then involved in a shooting, the drug test would come up positive. None of the fun, all the pain.
LE sometimes feel like they are second-class citizens. Sometimes it's just our perception that makes us feel that way. Other times it is quite clear we are not 'regular' citizens. Having to worry about such shit is a prime example of not being regular joes. There aren't easy answers for this and other things that challenge us in daily life, like wanting to give another driver a piece of one's mind without fearing for job security. Or expressing one's true opinion while working...
Drinking the bongwater isn't an option.
