God, eplaya is like the internet for old people who don't quite know how to troll a forum yet :p

On the cop side, less news about burners breaking laws and less citations means less political awareness. Less political awareness means less pressure from the politcians to police the event. Less pressure means less police.

There will always be cops. Some will always be dicks. If everyone is a bit smarter about their actions and avoids breaking the law then there will be less of them.

In the mean time, be nice to the cool and moderate cops. Bring them in as friends and treat them as people at the burn. People are people, and good people don't fuck friends over. This is true for cops. And the asshole cops, treat them like any asshole. Catch them failing and push to get them fired (if you can, or so desire, or whatever).

Yes, I am a silly so and so who thinks you can get bad people removed from positions of power. I also think if you are smart enough you can play cop tag anywhere. Ohh, feel free to read into this post as much as you like. LEO, that means you too. Cryptic fucker that guy is.

Finally, someone else who gets it!

I don't think I can. I know I can. And anyone else reading this forum can as well if they set their mind to it. All done fully legit, above board, and with honesty, integrity, and ethical standards intact.

Yes? No? Any other valid and SERIOUS ideas for how to fix this problem? Because seriously... it is becoming a big problem, and every year it is worse.



Ok I am sorry if this has already been stated as I did not read the entire thread; however if you want to keep LEOs off your back there is one simple solution: DON'T DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL.


Similar to other prophet speak I believe my man Chris Rock said it best with this little tidbit:
