• 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:

thought I would post something to provoke a light hearted discussion:


someone stole another one of those *&#@#! 6 foot tall penguins in Tulsa....


any predictions on where they'll find it this time?
(floating in the Arkansas river or in some rednecks backyard again is mine)

I have to work my part time tonight out in Phil's area. I'll keep my ears open for that BOLO. I heard some fool on the tunrpike last night flag down (jump out in front of) a Creek County deputy. That was pretty funny. Of course, the best way to flag them down is to jump in front of them, needless to say, he was a little schnockered and the troop got to deal with him. Laters....

yeah, I called OKC, and they already knew about the dufus; so I confirmed that he was 88 (intoxicated) and that he'd flagged down a deputy for a ride into down to get fuel (he ran out of gas!)

that was before the sig-30 dog.... fun times on night shift!:D

It was probably Bill LaFortune! I mean with Great Plains going under, not enough money for the new and usless arena, and not getting relected for mayor, I'd say it's a good chance it's him or someone that works for him ;-)

Now that's a great idea. Forget all that Vision 2025 taxation foolishness. If you really want to beautify this city, they could start by tearing down that big headed, pudgy assed "golden" monstrosity.

How did that pile of junk survive the down burst? It's like a demonic curse plaguing our fair city. Sort of like an anti-prayer tower.
