    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

The area also was clearly marked with a mandatory evacuation order when Santa Rosa resident Veda Bennett-Swank, 21, drove up to the firefighter, demanded he leave and glanced down at a shotgun he was holding between his legs and pointing directly at the firefighter, the sheriff's office said.

The firefighter fled and notified authorities, who found a similar vehicle at a nearby residence.

$20,000 bail for this moron who threatens a firefighter with a shotgun, and not only that has a pot grow to boot?

Domestic violence bail is higher than this!

This guy needs the book thrown at him.
