I agree. However, it has happened on this site recently. It is unfortunate, but true. Check out the I'm Back thread. I can give you the links if you need them.I find the idea of getting shot so bad that I find it hard to believe anyone would say they have been just to gain attention.
Not to mention folks claiming to be LEO or former LEO when they're not. It's unbelievable what some folks would do to get attention, or to bolster their "credibility".I read this a couple of years ago now. It's funny to read it again. Unfortunately we have some of these types on this site...who make up stories of getting shot to gain sympathy and credibility.
