I took it. The annoying part were the questions that gave you a multiple choice among several bad answers, with no real opportunity to vote your real opinion.
As I posted on the other thread, I was in law enforcement for many years, some of them in south Florida
. If the people who end up making the decisions about this legislation, ever actually look at this survey, or accept input from anyone who did, I will be highly surprised. We were never consulted on laws that they wanted us to enforce. Because, that's not how these kinds of laws are made. They are usually custom made for the people who ordered them up and paid for them in the form of campaign contributions. Those people are almost never law enforcement.
But, I did fill it out, under the "It can't make it any worse." theory.
But, me remembering the day that the mayor of one of these towns wanting to put in mooring
fields in Florida
, came to us and demanded to know why we were arresting a known LCN mafia member
who owned a club in his town, for murder (his second that we knew of), because he was a friend of his and a good guy, doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. At the time, after he left, we were all of the same opinion: Namely, how deep did the LCN have their hooks in this guy, that he would come to a federal agency and say something like that? He is still the mayor.
I won't say the name of the town, other than it ends in Beach, and is one of the reasons I transferred out of Florida the first chance I got.
