Thank-you for the welcome. 


My journey to finding the Wheel of Time was a long and round about one -we passed each other once order twice before becoming properly acquainted.  I LOVE words and reading, throughout school I was typically bookish and bullied -fantasy was my escape -I'm sure that rings true for plenty of people.  I fell in love with Tolkien and devoured everything he wrote quickly.  A few people put EoTW in my hands over the years -figuratively and practically.  At first it did not gel for some reason -which is odd because it was precisely the type of book I loved.  I believe things happen for a reason and in the right time.  When finally we became friends, I discovered that it was not just a story but a series of lessons that I needed to learn.  -Accepting your situation, accepting who you are and not being budged despite outside influences.  I know that a series has gotten hold of me when I find that one special character I identify with and yep, it happened here too.  


Outside of reading, I have studied Kung Fu, Ju Jitsu and Tai-Chi and used to enjoy obstacle races (sadly I don't have the time to devote tot the latter now).  My other passion is travelling, my most recent adventure was Peru -I definitely left a piece of my heart in the Andes.


*raises a cup to all* drink hale!

Welcome, Lethira.  I am the resident non-alcoholic drinking member (which is an oxymoron as a member of the band)  LOL.....  So how about an iced tea....  :biggrin:  I used to have a special name for my iced tea but forgot what it was...so now just iced tea...  *sigh*

    • "I'm sure a lot of this equipment can be downgraded, and added body-cams with minimal cost."   Well dash board cams or such might be doable but what do you mean by "Downdgrading the equipment?       "From an Evidentiary stand point, maybe court cases will become expedited through the use of body-cams, without necessitating every cop involved come in and testify."   Never going to happen. First, the cop is required to testify as to chain of possession of the video. Second the video itself is never enough evidence. both the prosecutor and the defense will want to question the officer as to why things occured as they are pictured on the video, about things that occured but were not picked up on the video and to explain whether his actions depicted on the video were within his understanding of departmental policy and the requirements of the law.     "Hell, adding new/better software, could help Cops write their reports in a fraction of the time... Which could help those who are barely literate. "   Likely not a good idea. You want the reports based on the officers recollection and notes. The videos are helpful to determine discrepencies in the officer's reports in cases where such become an issue. By allowing the officer to veiw the video and then right his report you likely would be permitting officers to talyor the reports to explain away many issues that the videos might bring into focus.
