The possibilities are endless

At the time of this review there have only been four episodes of the podcast released. In four short weeks this podcast has come leaps and bounds. I’m always excited when I find a podcast(er) doing something unique and innovative, and Brady is doing just that. This podcast finds a way to meld two of my favorite things, podcasting and the written word. Give this one a listen. - Dave @unit2back

Another fake person hiding behind good things for profit

So the cop that runs this podcast is not a straight up liar, he intends to profit from it by going along with the circus by presenting himself as a “GOODGUY” when in fact he is a racist, constantly drug high person thats seeks random ppl on the internet making comments on post regarding things going on in the country then proceeds to attack them and when he does not get the response he wants, he publicly posts you online, makes fun of you and calls you the worse of the worse

I have nothing for respect for all types of law enforcement, good friends of mine are in several departments across the country and some internationally

But these new generation of cops that not only dont even care about the image they have in the public because if you visit his social
Media you can see for yourself…

He is on a power and thinks that because he has a badge he has the power to say or attack anyone because they share a different opinion than him…

Talk about being judge and executioner…

Cops like this are a shame to cops everywhere, he gives the impression to be the type of cop that since ge weighs 50lbs wet, he needs to come off rude or aggressive which is also seen in many cases when cops abuse narcotics or muscle enhancements (roids is clearly not the case here)

So to conclude, any person that carries themselves like this in a day to day is clear to be posing behind a mask to seek a some type of gain, could be financial, profesional or just a social image.

Shane on this guys and hopefully is newborn does not inherit this horrible personality…
