Hi everybody. My name is Eric, as you've read, and I'm 20 years old. I have been working in security for 1 year now. I am also Lead Dj/Kj for Raven Skye Entertainment out of White Cloud Michigan. I have been wrestling professional-style for about 6 years now. I am far too arrogant and opinionated for my own good, as many of you have already found out, but I have been working on that...

Professional style is the style that you see on TV. I am arrogant because I am good at what I do and am not afraid to tell you about it. Most people call that arrogance.

I have a guy on my shift who is a pro wrestler, he has even been on TV a few times. He stated he makes more doing that than with the PD but no bennies yet with the westling....

Self promotion is not arrogance it is insecurity. If you truly had confidence you would feel no need to self promote.
I am disappointed you would come on a site where so many give so much every day ,,,and promote yourself,,,,
The true hero's out there feel no need for "credit" for who they are or what they do,,,they just are,,,and they just do ...
Talk to me about arrogance when you have reason for it.......and in the meantime realize there are folks on this site who save lives every day and are humble.......

Are you a supporter of LE ? If that answer is yes, I suggest you assume the role of supporting these fine officers. You introduced yourself on a police website and have said nothing to lead me to assume you are here for anyones cause other than your own....

For one, I am an ENTERTAINER. Did I ever say i was a hero? Did I ever claim to be anything I am not? Also for the record, I DO support LE. There are things that I need to learn, and who better to learn from than LEO's? I'm not here to give advice, I'm a 20yo Security Guard who would rather be doing a show.

Also, with this being the "Introduction section" Would it be a good idea for me to tell about who I am?

first of all i see no harm in his introduction because that's what it is AN INTRODUCTION. second of all he's not promoting himself he's doing exactly what an introduction is supposed to do which is explain some things about yourself. he's not claiming to need "credit" for what he does nor does he expect it he's just introducing himself so if you're gunna get all huffy puffy about it maybe you need to just count to 10 take a couple deep breaths and relax a little bit before you start passing judgement.

And I am entertained altho hardly impressed..as I stated, I personally find your advertisement offensive and your self proclaimed arrogance pitiful , considering their are people here WHO ARE HERO'S AND ARE ENTITLED TO IT and yet are humble . Make no mistake I DID NOT CALL YOU A HERO, NOR DID YOUR ARROGANT OPINIONATED SELF PROCLAIM IT...I merely stated you have absolutely no reason to be arrogant . And wondered why your ENTERTAINER self would be interested in LE when by your own words you'd rather be doing something else...

alright i think it's really time to drop the nasty post there babeblu cause it ain't helping any. you've made your point, you're disgusted and what not but again this in an INTRODUCTION forum not a bashing forum so if ya really got a problem with him then take it to the fight club.

He didn't explain anything about himself, he sold what he does and added that he was arrogant and opinionated...maybe you need to count to ten take a couple of deep breaths because I guarantee you you've bitten off more than you can chew if you think I am the slightest bit "huffy puffy" right now....

that's pretty much what an intro sounds like to me. who are you?, what do you do?, how old are you?, etc. i mean that's pretty much all ya need really in an intro but by no means was the comment you made warranted at all due to that and i don't bite off more than i can chew, i bite off only what i need to.

what comment ?.....the one saying I find it hard to swallow someone self proclaimed arrogance in amongst people I hold in highest regard that are deserving of an arrogant attitude due to the FACT THAT THEY SAVE LIVES...that comment ? The very ones that actually are humble in their own professions and have to listen to some snot nosed kid spouting off about how arrogant they are ? Hows that for comment.....

you're not getting the point but whatever it's neither here nor there i guess. you seem to be the one who's caught up in your arrogance and want credit for your actions if anything because you're just reading way too much into his introduction. i'm just wondering if you noticed that you're the only one that had a problem with his into?

Let me take a moment to explain my offense to edrakes intro. I am offended that anyone would come on this site and not be humble to the LEO's that call this home. I am offended that while these men and woman are going out day in and day out for far to little pay and smaller thanks that anyone would think they had right to arrogance. I am humble in the fact that their family's sacrifice as they go about their day to day. I am offended that while any officer stands by a fallen brother ,anywhere, that anyone professes arrogance . I am offended with every numbnuts that comes on this site in a sneaky lying way, this is their house. I am offended when anyone even considers there is ignorance here and asks and obviously stupid question. I am offended when a dispatcher is on the radio somewhere trying to keep our officers safe someone would proclaim arrogance. I am offended that there is a US veteran out there somewhere, and that you would profess arrogance. I am offended by your statement Edrake. Call it right call it wrong but I call it like I see it.

all i'm sayin is that his arrogance has nothin to do with negativity towards LEOs. i know him personally and he has the utmost respect for them and everything they do but to be arrogant is one's right to their personality and youth. i'm sure that he's not the only one here that is a non-leo that would claim to be arrogant and also like i said your attack on him was not warranted no matter how you try to justify it. NUFF SAID. i just hope you can put it behind you and realize that arrogance doesn't always have to be negative and that you can be a good person and supporter no matter the personality. with that also said i'm done with this topic and hope you can be to.

Oh, I don't have to justify it, thats simply the way it is . I only explained it as it seamed it needed spelled out to you.
Arrogance : an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manor or in presumptuous claims or assumptions.
Sounds like someone promoting themselves to me, but I may have misunderstood the word, it was ARROGANCE wasn't it. And my issue was by the very definition right on target (see above definition ). Sorry you had to tolerate a lesson in manners as well as learning the meaning of a word, but life is tough and when you come into someones house the way you introduce yourself can make an immediate impression, GREAT JOB if thats what you were going for.

Listen Babeblu, If you are so damned offended and I'm so horrible, BE THE BIGGER PERSON and Quitcherbichen. this is my INTRO. I said who I am, how old, where I am, and what I do. I also threw in a personality trait for everybody. What i'm seeing is somebody got their panties in a bunch because they didn't like who I am. you could have just clicked out of it and had no problem, but you opened your mouth. i have said this before, If you don't accept me for who I am, as far as i'm concerned you can go to hell.

P.S. Thanks for the compliment
