  • Police should not be taking any time off from that town. Especially after what just happened. Shame on them.

    What if those NRA guys come back and hit another school?
  • Wow. Thats... Awesome. Deserved hero tag.

    Oh, I'm glad they're getting something, they've had a hell of a time...

    a hero is someone who does their job even when they'd rather just pack it in and call it a day.  these guys couldn't stop the horrible massacre at the school, nobody could..but they've gotta be feeling like crap just the same.  instead of the usual christmas prep of parties and excited kids the cops have had to review the scene of a mass murder, write reports on the dead kids, and help clean up the mess afterwards.  then there was the funerals to attend, explanations to be made (because you always have to explain these sorts of things to someone who just doesn't understand), and the national media monday morning quarterbacking the whole town.

    And despite all that, they did it.  they got up every day, gulped down coffee...and took pictures of dead kids, drew diagrams of the bodies, and wrote up reports based on evidence gathered.  then they went and patrolled the town and faced the public.  being a small town, the cops likely knew the families.  there is no way this could have been easy for them to do.  it takes a toll.  one that most cops probably wouldn't talk about even if you asked 'em.

    that's heroic.  doing the job even when you'd rather just say 'f*ck it' and walk away disgusted with humanity and live on an island by yourself.
  • I cannot imagine how horrific it must have been to respond to that scene. Having to see and deal with the bodies of 20 dead 6 year olds? I'm really happy that they get to spend Christmas with their loved ones.
  • A hero is somebody who does his job even when he doesn't want to. Thanks Weaver95 for clearing that up. I guess we can consider the soldiers marching the Jews into the gas chambers heroes because they were just doing their job, even though they didn't want to.

    There's always one douchebag in every crowd. Merry Christmas.

    To me, it seems like they dropped the ball on that one. Instead of a day off, sounds like there should be some remedial training going on.

    Well, it might refer to the police from other communities who gave up their Christmas holiday to make this happen.

    Wow. You are not only a troll, but a batshiat crazy one. You take the cake, duffblue.

    Except on Fark.

    They travel in single file to hide their numbers.
  • Really? This is the thread the trolls are going to crap all over? Seriously, it's farking Christmas.
  • Alright, everybody. It's another Newtown thread. Lets all freak at and act like complete assholes to each other.

    Okay... GO!

    You're probably one of those bleeding heart liberals that wishes for guns for teachers and fruitcake for Christmas!

    /good enough?
  • I heard about this on the news this morning.
    Damned nice, all things considering.
    Some of those guys weren't even responders to the shooting --- but the crap that went on there they still see the other 364 days of the year. Having a moment to put that aside and be grateful that you aren't dead or slipping on fresh blood is good for them.

    And you sir and/or madam are a cock burglar.

    hahhaaha "jourisdiction". I'm sure it does create jurisdiction issues de jure.

  • I don't really mind SNL's tacky tribute as much as I minded people's reverence for a comedy show's attempt to garner sympathy-by-association for a tragedy that happened far away. It's like all these local monuments to 9/11 where they had nothing to do with it. Also, I didn't know so many people were closeted SNL watchers which is just really offensive.
