Mik, I'm sure these topics you like to post hold an interest for you, and that's fine. But we aren't exactly a current events news forum here. There are other outlets for that. Please try to keep the topics trucking related.

You won’t hear from me again, delete my account, disinterest in a matter this important is not something I want to be a part of... sorry.. but trucking don’t live alone in this world....not the only thing that matters..

Not sure what's going on with folks here lately.

I live in Broward, and have a lot of friends that are BSO, and were none too happy about what went down.

I was also told there's more to the entire incident, than meets the eye, and more than just the deputy that should have gone in.

That being said - it's not appropriate for this site.

And if you can't see that - and can't accept it, then I guess it might be better that you move on - or just be a big boy, apologize instead of justify and get back to trucking news...

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices

We just had a mass shooting last Friday here in Virginia Beach, VA. 12 were killed three miles from my house. Guess what? I was leaving a medical appointment, and standing in the parking lot at 1607 and heard the first four shots when the first victim was gunned down in a parked car, one mile from the doctors office. Two of the dead I had interacted with at the city office over the years. One victim was a good friend of a second cousin of mine. She was just interviewed by a local TV station today.

I didn’t post it on here because it has nothing to do with trucking.

Not sure I understand the frustration of the OP.

If any post non trucking related we’re allowed you would literally have to sift through hundreds of posts trying to find info you want pertaining to trucking

Wow Packrat, that’s crazy. I know it’s not what you were intending, but my thoughts go out to you as well as the families of those affected.
