• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

Perhaps it's not that surprising that a mother in Menifee, California, asked the Menifee Union School District
to ban all copies of the 10th edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary after her child stumbled
across the term "oral sex."

What is surprising, indeed horrifying, is that district officials immediately complied with her request,
and pulled all dictionaries off classroom shelves throughout the Southern California school district.


District officials said on Friday that they are forming a committee to consider a permanent classroom
ban of the Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

The executive director of the California First Amendment Coalition says
"common sense seems to be lacking in this school."

Next thing you know, they won't allow sideburns on boys and mini-skirts on girls (bring back the 60's-70's for me)!
