    Thanks for having me, I'm 27, I work as an LEO, I made a profession of faith in 2017. Though I had a very rocky start (I attended a church that referred to sin as "character defects," and preached topical sermons that in no way preached the gospel) I slowly, through the study of the bible and watching sermons online became more grounded in orthodox Christianity. I'm glad to be here and have fellowship with fellow believers.

    Thank you for your service. Not an easy time to wear the badge in today's political environment.

    Serious story there

    they had a cop prob 70 yrs old back in the day

    he worked Tues 1pm -9 pm

    Wed 1pm- 9pm

    Thrs 1-6 pm

    why?

    good question

    none of the people wanted to expose him to crime or for him to get hurt

    I’m serious. At least that’s what I was told

    LaCygne Kansas= Mayberry USA

    I hadn't even heard of La Cygne till you brought it up. It's way out in eastern kansas though so that's probably why.

    OTOH, there's many an old man (at least around here) that are the LAST people on earth you want to tangle with, my 97 yo mountain man Dad being one.
