I did not know that sub existed. I already follow CCW and ProtectAndServe.

I must confess, I laughed when I read the letter from this story:

Just read that one now.

This is the picture under discussion, the graduation photo for Michigan State Police, and not a SEAL team as one might suspect:

That looks, well, dumb . . . . any random character at WalMart can drape themselves in varying forms of camo

This looks much cooler

You'd think you'd want your graduation photo to let people know 'I'm part of X!'

One is a picture of a team with the training, equipment and desire to kill and intimidate.

The other is a picture of police officers.
