I might have blogged once before about certain things happening; errr.. rather NOT happening on my friend's squad.

There was a light at the end of that tunnel at the end of the year when promotions were handed out. The hope was that the good leaders that were promoted would put an end to the sloth. It couldn't have been farther from the occurrences now happening.

The former Sgt. is now the Lt. he pretty much finds a place to hide and disappears. If a call does come in to which he is needed it takes him forever to get there. The new Sgt., which tested up through the ranks, was a well rounded, very intelligent, ambitious guy that everyone was excited for. He turned out to be the "go home and sleep" guy.

That's just great.. the 2 top tiered guys and they are nowhere to be found on calls.. REAL GOOD POLICE WORK!

Now there's the rest of the squad. 2 guys go home and sleep (besides the Sgt.) They ACTUALLY CALL dispatch and tell them that they are not available until whatever hour. One guy works at a snail's pace, and the other just calls out every other night. This places my friend and one other guy in a very bad position should something go wrong; and it almost has a few times.

What does one do in a situation like this? You can't nark on anyone because forget it.. that's blacklisting yourself, yet the only other option is putting your life even more at risk for keeping your trap shut!

So here's my 2 cents.
If you cops out there want to sleep at night.. go get a security job and leave the dirty work for the guys and gals that actually WANT TO WORK. OR, here's the other option.. you can't stay awake at night, get a day shift.. You selfish jerks.. you are putting your brothers and sisters at risk should a real emergency happen. Think of their families and friends as well.. and not only that but think of how shitty you would feel God forbid something were to happen as a direct cause of your laziness and inability to get to the scene in a timely fashion because you wanted to go home and sleep.
