Yup, sorry, being in one of those professions doesn't automatically make you a "hero." The Hero tag is earned, not bestowed.

Unfortunately, an unhealthily large percentage of the people in those professions tend to let that get to their head. Hence a huge parade funeral in LA for a meter maid who died while off-duty, funded by the City of Los Angeles and attended by a couple thousand police officers from the neighboring three states who took the day off and drove taxpayer-owned vehicles (burning taxpayer-paid fuel) hundreds or thousands of miles to attend the funeral.

What does this thread have to do with Ecomodding again?
