To all you LEO-folk. whether cop, C/O, deputy, or the LEO of a interesting variety, a couple of questions for you...


Why the heck would you post a provoking comment in a female member's photo area ? (or visa versa..)


I have read numerous comments from LEOs on the site that have a flair to patronizing the BB or other gender with things like: "Hottie", or "sexy", etc or other comments with an innuendo twist.


Second question for ya: Would your Chief, Sheriff, department or agency head think anything of your post ? Sort of like, "Hey, Chief, lookit what I posted?"


This discussion comes from viewing many, many comments and tributes from people with the itty-bitty badge (LEO verification indicator) and some of their accompanying remarks.


Friends, if you want to have the freedom to make these kinds of comments on a public forum, then consider having your badge removed. Change up your profile to be just any schmo. Then you can be just like anyone else.


Listen, I am not a prude by any means. But if we are moving forward with a sense of dignity and respect, then show some class. And, this certainly is not for most of the respected LEOs on the site. But there are some out there that don't help our profession with comments that kinda undermine our careers.


This is not meant to be a doggone rant. It is simply a heads up.


Strength and honor, fellow LEOs.


10-8...

Those who post to bunnies are in need of attention or have egos.

Not to mention giving ammo to cop-hater trolls, who don't need any more reasons to talk trash about us.  Thanks for the reminder Sarge.

I agree.


Never say anything in public you can not explain in the Chief's Office the next morning. You never know who is listening or watching and it may just end up on the front page of the hometown newspaper... I have had more than one officer get jammed up over something like this.

I've seen fellow officers lose their badge, their marriage,  and Peace Officer license to Badge Bunnies.  I wouldn't want to see it happen to any one else.

Sometimes comments should be left un-said and left in your own mind. I think its very degrading not just to the person doing it, but to their department and others who are honroable. I also feel if they are single and would like to find a date, girlfriend or wife what ever it may be, then do so on another site, in person, with out the title or badge by your name. Just my opinion….

Amen to this post!!!! We want to get rid of them, not encourage them.  If your an LEO and BB's are your thing, do me and everyone else a favor and take'm all b/c we dont want them!!! One concept I never understood was how there was all these LEO's and LE personnel that are always making posts on how they are so against BB's and what they stand for but they will be the first ones to provoke them and give them the exact attention they come to this site for.... I dunno maybe its just the way a man's mind works....

Sarge your right but have you looked at some of the photos...Maybe they should be removed as well....As pointed out by my 19 year old son who is soon to be joining the ranks...He got sick of this site because there are a bunch of women on here trying to snag a cop to date...I have come across it the opposite way. My photos are far from anything but family oriented...Took me a week to get rideof some guy emailing me...Told him to get his badge certification and came up with some excuse as to why he couldn't. I didn't come on here to date but I have made a couple of real good friends.

I like that idea! kinda like the old hometown newspapers that lists the DUI's and the john's that get locked up.

no doubt this is not the place for certain pics and especially for certain comments.  i am not sure whats worse really.  is it the comments made to some of the pics or the comments made in the tribute box?  besides ASK A COP being taken off here, the tributes area is the absolute biggest joke on here! 


i agree that there is definitely a time and a place for all those pictures and comments....JUST NOT HERE!

I don't believe they will stop.  Most never post on forums, just comments to BB's.

I agree, but unfortunately in this line of work no matter how much you try and get rid of these kinds of females they will always exist.  I give alot of credit tho to the mods on here b/c they are pretty good about making sure that if a photo is to provocative or inappropriate they get it removed asap.

If you wouldn't say it in church or to your mom, or grand ma then don't say it. There's enough turds out there bringing down the credibility of LEO's without doing it to ourselves.

Very true. They are clearly on this site for the wrong reasons. This is not just an extension of MySpace or FaceBook or some such. Many here are trying to have serious discussion on a professional website. TheSarge is absolutely correct. If you feel the need to stoke your ego in that manner, then don't bother getting verified. Remain an anonymous schmuck. All this stuff can and probably should get back to your dept. Are you a credit or an embarassment?

Golden Rule:  if you would not want it printed on the front page of your local news paper, Don't write it, Don't say it or Don't do it.   Real easy.

Kozy don't have to tell me...I used to be a training officer. Told every one of my recruits to watch what the heck they do because for some reason women literally throw themselves at you...Warned them if they were married guarantee 2 yrs you won't be and if you have a girlfriend she will be gone even quicker...Only one of many ever proved me wrong..I found it funny being a female officer to come up on a traffic stop with some girl with her stuff hanging out...I would just say save it wrong sex and I don't go that way...

Bump that.   LEO's here are representing an Agency and a proffession.  Best to be watching out for both.

I personally don't like the idea of the friends deal and the pics and comments thing.  Seems kinda myspace like.  Kinda creepy.


This is why I stopped accepting friend requests.  Weird overall.

Excellent post and point!!!


Not wishing to be labled a "Troll", "Prude", or cause any troubles here but since this was brought up I thought I'd add my comments.


And with me being a former (non-Retired) LEO, a US Air Force Veteran, Husband, Father, and Christian (although not the one I should be) I've seen a lot of behavior on here that could bring all LEOs into a "bad light".


I had made some comments in another post not long ago about how being on the Internet can be fun as you hide anonymously behind your keyboard and throw out insults, threats and such just like what has been brought up here. Now, again I have thick skin, but while it is sometimes difficult to completely understand a message that is written as opposed to spoken can sometimes lead to a total misunderstanding with some people.


Inappropriate comments, remarks, or suggestive ideas will most likely surface on any and all web-sites when many different people from all around get together. And, yes, while we're all adults (for the most part) we should try to remember to respect each other regardless of what our backgrounds may be.


I've not been a member here very long but I've seen some things said that makes me question a few of those (verified) LEOs moral fiber.
