    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Here is the BOLO on the suspect:

Cpt. Leonard J Eglin (sp?)
DOB 1974
Indian Male, 5'8" black crew cut
Driving a 2011 black Dodge Ram pickup with possible L front end damage
VA tag JCF3340

Armed with multiple weapons including a 0.223 rifle, wanted for multiple homicides in multiple states, Was stationed at Ft. Lee, VA and has relatives in CA, PA, and VA.

Considered extremely dangerous and has used the 0.223 rifle to injure Bucks Co law enforcement officers. Obviously civilians should NOT approach or confront; if spotted call 911 immediately.

At present suspect vehicle has been located and additional resources are being assembled to investigate further.

Situation ended with suspect (or perpetrator, if you prefer, at this point) found dead from a self-inflicted wound. Some media outlets were intelligent enough not to use the questionable and legally undefined term "person of interest."

What's your point? I was typing on the fly, going with what dispatch said, while operating 3 other radios and sending weather updates to NWS during a hurricane. Dispatchers make mistakes, and so do the rest of us.
