Ah the joys of being the administrator.
He's not even making much of an effort these days.
Not to mention Lago (Copy) is like, what? Level 5 and still in starting gear?
Seriously TM™ stop fooling around! You still have to help me complete Moogle and Brew Shinryu so I can get that atma.
One of our officers was shot and killed last night.
CIS News Articles
This happened very shortly after I left from my shift at 0100 hours, and I was the operator working the St. Pete radio last night up until that time. It's quite possible I was one of the last people to speak to him.
I never met him in person but I have a working relationship with all of the field officers. We are extremely professional while communicating via radio, but we all are able to laugh and joke around while talking over the phone with matters that can't be resolved over the radio. I'm very saddened by this ... and haunted by the fact that I really missed it by minutes. I can't imagine the horror of those who were working last night when this took place.
My heart goes out to his family and friends. I didn't know him very well as I didn't speak to him very often (I usually operated on different radios), but I know that he was a dedicated field officer and that he will be missed.
And I also know that there is a special place in hell for the asshole who did this. Fuck this world.
This is a better article, for those of you who are interested. Security officer found shot to death at St. Petersburg apartment complex - St. Petersburg Times
As of now I believe there has been no progress on the shooting, however, after having lost three St. Pete officers in the last seven months and two more in Tampa a few months before that, this will be a high priority case. I really hope they find the bastard that did this.
Copied off the end of the last OT thread and started a new one.

Also, does posting in this thread cost more MP and have some enhanced effect? o_O
Lol. Well I'm glad to know that it wasn't just on my end.
In other news, season finale of NCIS tonight. I'm very glad I have today and tomorrow off. I had a job interview today, it didn't go spectacularly but I don't think I really wanted to work for them anyway. (But it never hurts to go in and see.)
I'm still just in "holy crap how did that happen" mode. I mean I talked to him like, thirty minutes before I left for the night. I was probably the last person in Ops to talk to him. Possibly the last, considering the time of night and the unlikelihood that there were any late night community contacts. I mean, there was nothing I or anyone in Operations could have done for him - if he sensed danger, he would have called out over his radio, and he did not. Basically, he was taken by surprise and it wasn't until later when we did an hourly status check that we realized something was wrong. And I know this, but I still feel like ... damn.
It makes you kind of doubt your role when you're in the back and something like this happens and even though you were 100% powerless against it, you feel like you should have been able to do something. And yet, we weren't. I mean how much good is the dispatch center when something like this can still happen seemingly out of nowhere? It just really ... sucks.
Just to have a link back to the original
