    Unarmed man shot in back

    An unarmed man was shot in the back multiple times by a police officer. It is clear that the man was not a threat so the officer has now been charged with murder. The horrendous media is of course focusing on race rather than what matters. The majority of headlines felt it necessary to call him...

    Off duty cop pulled over

    This highway patrol officer pulled over a local cop in a marked car for speeding. If the charges are true he was driving over 120 mph on a relatively busy road to get to what sounds like an off duty security job.

    Driving A Sprinter For Fleet Owner

    I was looking at the possibility of driving a Sprinter for a fleet owner to try one out and learn a little. I understand that there isn't much money involved and I am fine with that. I was trying to find a smaller company that might work out well and I was looking for suggestions if anyone knew...

    What to do?

    My wife and I are working on starting a business that would mean I need to leave my current company for both time and ethical reasons. I can still be out on the road while she gets things started at home and I would still like to have some income coming in separate from the new business. I still...

    Changing companies?

    I was thinking about putting this in the Truck Talk forum but thought it would work here as well. The vast majority of drivers will switch carriers at some point in their career and a big issue is the leftover remains if the previous company's logos and lettering. I think it looks pretty bad...

    Buying a truck that has been sitting

    I am looking at a 1998 International Eagle with around 800k miles on it. The Detroit motor runs well with no blow by and the tranny and clutch are in good working order. There were a few issues like the air pressure stopped at 60psi which might be an issue with ice in the lines and the brake...

    Tannerite set off with an AR-15

    This is a video of my brothers and I using tannerite. I have some more video of hitting it with a 12 gauge which the directions said wouldn't work but it did. The directions said you had to use something with at least 2000fps but the 1600fps 12 gauge slugs worked fine. Hoping to get some more in...

    People in TX are backwards

    Obviously most know my positions on religion so clearly this is not a lib attack on religion. I can't believe that they are fighting teaching evolution in school.Trying to put your fingers in your ears and closing your eyes tight won't make the theory of evolution go away. My 7th grade teacher...

    Ready for hazmat changes?

    I haven't heard much about the changes coming up for hazmat but it seems from this article that everyone needs to be trained even if you don't haul hazmat because of the fuel in your tanks.

    CARB may loosen rules

    This might be the result of pressure that CARB was feeling because if their restrictions but they are looking to loosen rules up for truck owners. Sent from my SCH-I535 using EO Forums...

    Avoid Deming, NM

    I'm hoping this turns out to be a joke but it seems credible at this point. FYI The story could be considered crude by some but it is clean enough for TV. Sent from my SCH-I535 using EO Forums mobile app

    What would you do?

    The owner of an expedite company had his truck used in a DEA sting without his knowledge and the truck was damaged. He also states that the company ran a criminal history report on the driver that came back clean because the DEA covered up past crimes. I think a huge lawsuit is a pretty good...

    How's that transparency working?

    Funny how we get a bunch of reports that so many people were signing up for Obamacare that it was causing problems with the website only to find out it was all lies to cover up the fact we are spending well over a billion dollars on poorly designed software. Now we find out Obama was negotiating...

    Westboro found a new target

    Apparently the Westboro members think targeting people who just don't care is going to be effective. Blake Shelton is being targeted for getting divorced and then marrying his current wife. His response to WBC was pretty clear and a little less polite than Vince Gill's when Vince was being...

    Possibly some commonsense?

    It seems there might be some in Congress that think the new HOS rules were rushed. It could mean we will see a change back so we should keep an eye out. Sent from my SCH-I535 using EO Forums...
