  1. Today
  2. Music City Raceway Street Night

    Next Tuesday, it's on at the Hill. The weather is looking cool again, high of 78. It's showing a low chance of rain, but that will change 28 times between now and then. I'll be mounting my drag tires back on this weekend and they won't come off till November. I'm excited that fall is almost here and it's time to destroy a set of drag radials.

    On mine they rusted behind the wheel and near the top of the wheelwell. The worst was down low, similar to the fenders.

    Thanks, brother! It's the Farewell Tour of my Thirties!

    Yeah, that puts you in a very tough spot.

    We've got a retired CO as a customer. He's told some stories....I can't unhear.

    It's a balancing act of (1) enforcing the policies of the institution and (2) not pissing of the inmates too much. They have NOTHING to lose if they get pissed and try to beat your ass or kill you. They're already on death row. Worst that can happen is they go to back to C level for 3 years and then B before going right back to A level. Seriously.

    Yeah see that was also my wife's concern with me becoming an LEO in Southern CA, specifically Riverside county. The Mongols and some off shoots of MS-13 do a lot of the drug running around that area, and I would have been dealing with those kinds of folks. Man I do not envy you, but thank you very much for what you do. You keep the monkeys in the barrel, and us safe from them.

    Raceall (39 years old) Happy Birthday, mang!

    I have stripped the passenger side down most of the way working on a small hickey around the taillight. Then again the spots on the fenders didn't show until media blasting was done.

    Ahh, c'mon. You get law enforcement discounts and access to buy LEO only stuff not sold to non-LEO citizens. Once vested, you get a law enforcement carry permit TCA 39-17-1350 and possibly covered by LEOSA (according to how the law is amended year to year). Then, there is that cute little badge you get to wear. Makes you feel 10ft tall and bullet proof, if your crazy. There are a few perks. A few....

    A lot of people quit within the first day to first week. The rest go before they even get a year in. We've been so short that I've run death row by myself on 2nd shift. Just me and an officer locked in the unit control room. If something happens, he cannot come help. He has to run the control room. Without him, no doors would open for help to get in. Well, they could still get in without him, but it would take longer because they'd have to get the security keys from central control and manually unlock the doors, taking more time. But the UC officer can't leave until another officer relives them. He doesn't have keys to the UC doors and if he did, an inmate could beat his ass and take them and then take over the unit. If he left without relief, he'd have to leave the doors open and that is also a breach of security because an inmate could get in the UC.

    Hugueley is a C level. Want to feel a little more sick? TN Death Row is the only death row in the USA with a levels system, A, B and C. Majority are A level. Inmates on death row classified as A level are treated like minimum security within a max unit. This means, I'm surrounded by killers moving around freely with no cuffs, leg irons, nothing. B levels get more restrictions than A level; less rec time and cannot move around freely without restraints. C level are the most restricted. C levels are treated as max inmates and are locked down 23 hours a day with only 1 hour a day recreation outside their cell. C levels do not come in contact with any other inmates. They are fully restrained when they move (cuffs, leg irons, waist chain, black box, pad lock) by no less than 2 officers. All I have is a shank/spike vest and a Motorola radio with a red button on top (body alarm that alters central control I'm already fucked, to send help) which on 2nd shift, by the time they get there, your ass is already beat,or worse, dead. I have no mace, no baton, no taser inside the prison. Only Sargents and above rank can sign out and carry pepper spray. Only lieutenants and captains can sign out pepper spray and tasers. CERT team has all the toys, but they're not there at night and are on call 24/7. Only my unit, 2 Death Row and unit 4 CLOSE have inmates out on the max side. Units 1 and 3 are locked down 23 hours a day. Fwiw, we run so short on 2nd shift, we barely have a corporal and 1 to 2 officers on the floor. A max unit at max capacity holds 96 inmates.

    I wouldn't want to do that job. Aint no way.....

    I agree, no words or pictures can describe or show it. Truly amazing!
  16. Random thought thread

    NO THANKS. I just read the hugueley guys page and he was a very sick person. I don't want to be around any of them

    Place can't be that bad. Cause I'm not in there But seriously @JohnC be safe man.

    It was amazing. I was not expecting to be so amazed by it. Like MIKE said it was peaceful and quiet. Well for like 20 seconds and then I heard gunshots go off around me.

    LEO's catch'um. CO's have to live with them. CO's also keep you safe at night because if these mofo's get out, they will rape, murder, etc., again. It's a very stressful and dangerous line of work. We are way underpaid for what we do.

    The pictures are great, but will never compare to seeing it in person. It was so quiet and peaceful while it was dark. No mowers or cars etc. I saw something on the weather channel last night where they did a time lapse in a place that was cloudy. The clouds completely dissipated during the darkness and immediately reappeared when the light came back out. Something to do with the radiant energy of the sun causing the clouds to form. My dog was acting really weird and freaked out last night. I'm assuming because of the light.
  22. cordless drill favs?

    I received two new batteries. That worked out well (assuming I can register them for LSA later.)

    ^ Wow. I don't want any part of it, as long as I have to be law abiding.. Now, if I had a flak jacket and some grenades....seems like that's what that dude above needed.
  24. Eclipse

    ^ Nice. Clouds were threatening, but lifted just before totality. Saw the diamond ring and shadow bands. The hummingbirds left the feeders and the horse came out of the barn, all to return just a few minutes later. Still waiting to get my Eclipse photos off my potato....

    clouds made it difficult and I don't have the time to put the pic together that I want. But heres a few that I messed with.
  26. Random thought thread

    I work in a maximum security prison. We house some bad mofo's. The worst of the worst in most cases. Inmates here have killed outside on the street and inside the prison. They have even stabbed fellow inmates, officers, killed councilors, etc. There are lots of top ranking gang members, etc. An example here: It's no joke. It's mandatory that I wear a shank/spike vest. When I work unit 3 max or unit 1 supermax, I also wear a face shield. When I work outside on patrol, transportation to court or hospital, etc., we wear a ballistic vest and carry weapons of course; 12ga Shotgun and a pistol. I wake up every day wondering how the crap I ended up in this line of work. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. I just wanted to test the waters to see how I like it and take a new direction because I was tired of the past jobs I'd had. I'm looking to use this to move in to a different direction in law enforcement, though.
