    Default Attention IACOJ BMI: Pack your bags; we're going to W. Virginia!

    Just posted in the General Discussions about the latest black eye to the fire service. Got some canine kids setting fires for initiation.
    Jeez; anyone got any good news?
    IMACOJ; never been but am looking forward to seeing W. Virginia.

    When you're done putting the smack down on the 'canine kids,' maybe I can suggest a few good tourist attractions down that way. The Charleston area is about 2 1/2 hours away from me. West Virginia really is a good place to visit or vacation. We aren't called "Wild and Wonderful" for nothing.

    Unhappy

    Good Grief....initiation rituals? What ever happened to leadership, maturity, integrity and responsibility? Instead of setting good examples for the community..they allegedly set fires!

    Send the BMI...with our new War Wagon! You might need the heavy artillery.

    Black on black Excursion with tinted windows pulls up. 6 BMI agents get out with black suits, black ties, sunglasses and radios with earpieces get out. Go to the rear open up the barn doors, each pulls out a black brief case, enter the court house. Oh no the canine hunters are here!!!! Beware the BMI!!!!

    Some of our deployments are publicly known so we can cause fear in pups and mutts everywhere. It's a propaganda thing that NJ helps us out with.

    Are you really going to make me explain myself????

    I was playing dumb. I was trying to infer that even though say we do not know what they are talking about, we really do.

    Perhaps the statement, "We can neither confirm nor deny the exsistence of such a device" would have been more effective.

    Talking I like the idea of public knowledge...

    I like the idea of public knowledge for some of the Bureau's actions. It is a good tactic sometimes to say "We're comming and there ain't a GD thing you can do about it." Spreads the word to MUTTS worldwide that there is a New Sheriff in Town. Other times you'll need a more Covert "Black Pajama" to take down the big MUTTS.

    You guys go hand out lolipops and asswhoopin's, just remember that you ran out of lolipops.

    Be Safe, Drew

    Question Need a BMI TAC OPS Coordinator?

    1835wayne, hfd66truck, and Adze

    My last post made me wonder? Is there a position of BMI Tactical Operations Coordinator avalible and empty? Seeing I'm a Combat Arms officer in the Army, I feel my skills are not being utilized within the IACOJ. I see the possible need for this posistion to assist the Director in the planning and execution of both ordinary and covert operations to assist in the ridding of MUTTS and the disipline of young pups. Very Respectfully,

    Be Safe, Drew

    Cool Please add...

    All Con,

    If I get the job of BMI TAC OP would like to have SPIDER as my NCO. A good officer relies on a good NCO, and every NCO should own a LT. Be my pleasure to have you aboard Top!

    Be safe all. Drew

    Default Never...

    Bones- Never would I question the ability of the system we have established in the IACOJ to find, fix and suppress MUTTS, that would almost be treason, just want to offer my services in their pursuit, and would not mind bringing a 1SG into the mix.

    I just want to exploit our talents. Come on, we all signed up to be firemen, not cause we didn't have faith in the system, but becasue we have a talent andwant to put it to use!

    Be Safe, Keep Low, and mind the Penguin!!!

    Default Hmmmm................................

    I don't know............. I kinda like to think of the BMI as a kind of OSS type orginazation. Or like the Marine Corps Force Recon, SWIFT, SILENT, DEADLY!! An extremely militant arm could be usefull at times, as long as the President has plausible deniability............
