Re: Cops Out Of Control Seen On PD Video

It seems to me we need some sort of standard psych test for cops. If you exhibit certain personality traits you don't get to join.

Some women don't want a male physician.

It is possible to shatter a glass cooktop.

Yes, it is. My sister-in-law did it by putting a sauce pan top on the cooktop. The moisture inside the top combined with the residual heat of the cooktop suctioned it solidly to the cooktop. [more]
