Default retail therapy advice

Had a really bad weekend at work. the worst you can imagine.

I need some retail therapy to cheer me up. Anyone in the free states have any experience with the Robinson XCR?

That man is a monster.

No experiences with such, but how were you connected with said video?

Yeah, they got him. but not until after 4 of ours were taken. Truly good guys too. I know everyone always speaks highly of people once they are gone. But these four were talked highly of while they were here.

Naarleven. I am a LEO at OPD.

Its f'd up that the family of Mixon was trying to blame the Parole system for this and that he was a good kid.

Then there are people out there saying that this was connected to the BART shooting on Jan 1. which its not..not even our Department.

But anyone ever held an XCR?

I would buy more car stuff, but I have been pretty upset and driving too fast. I put myself on public transportation for a while until I chill out.

Geesh man I'm really sorry to hear that. I have never lost anyone close to me so I can't imagine the pain. My prayers go out the the families of the fallen Men.

Sorry to hear this man, I know the feeling. Keep your head up and be proud of them that's what they would want!

Sorry, never held and XCR, check out their forum and see if there is anyone local to you.

Suspension done. Brakes done, wheels tires seats harnesses turbo MS...Only thing I need is a rear wing for traction and a more efficient front splitter to even it out.

Which will make me drive even faster...
I need another something that goes boom.

You should probably get some therapy. Seriously. You are going to injure yourself or someone else.

BTW, I am not being an *** or anything. My Sister and her husband are both cops and lost a member of their team when the officer entered a house after chasing a suspect and the suspect drew a AK47 and shot him in the head. The SWAT team made sure the suspect never breathed again. My Uncle is a retired cop and has served as a contractor in Kosovo (twice) and Afghanistan teaching the people there police tactics. My younger brother is just waiting for the city to undo it's hiring freeze and he too will be an officer.

No offense taken. And yes the therapy has been continuous all week. Toys just make me smile. So does ripping the stump out of my back yard...and so does hanging out with my brothers in blue healing...

but retail therapy is the fun part of the healing...
