“The probability of someone watching you is directly proportional to the stupidity of your actions.“ – David Bowles
I sent this before your site went down. After that I tried to send this to Aux Sentinel. No action there, so I am trying again here now that you are back up. In late May (possibly early June?), a cadet acquaintance of mine posted one of your stories in the captalk forum. To this he received the following response from Dave Bowles aka SarDragon, which I saved only by copying the text.
“Your source is unreliable, and biased against CAP. It is best left unread, and your time is better spent elsewhere, even shining shoes.”

I suppose cadets who take the chance of speaking out in public forums have to endure a lot of crap from idiots, but I won’t put up with Bowles’ diarrhea at all. What a dumbass! Can I say that? Claiming that you are biased against CAP and therefore shouldn’t be read is idiotic. That would be like accusing the FAA of bias against incompetent, unsafe and suicidal pilots and careless flight instructors. That would be like accusing the FBI of bias against pedophiles. That would be like accusing the media of bias against liars and forgers.
Ignorant and arrogant turds like Major Bowels are pathetic in attempts to intimidate our cadets and senior suck-ups away from learning about the drugs, alcohol, murder, suicides, forgeries, rapists and pedophiles that have graced and disgraced your Civil Air Patrol. I want to place him on a leash and walk him through his own mess, but as I mentioned, I don’t have a screenshot of the original captalk thread. The coverup CAP members at captalk have deleted it. Can you help? I have no more time to work on this project.
P.S. You need to post a summary list of all the Civil Air Patrol suicide stories. I thought you had done that in May, but I am not finding it so I used the link in your Pillars Story.
