Technicians can fix the copper line “if the customer does not qualify” for wireless service. In those cases, the tech must document the reason the customer didn’t qualify for VoiceLink.
“It is a requirement that migration to VoiceLink be your first option when the customer qualifies and the trouble is in Verizon's network,” the memo says.
So it looks like if a tech is called to a site where all they have is voice over copper, and they're having issues with said VOC, then the techs are to simply test to see if the wireless service will work there, and if so, switch them to it. If not, then fix the copper line.
I'm not defending Verizon, but the headline here is misleading.
Police are NOT dangerous, unless you make yourself a target by refusing to comply or acting like you are dangerous to the officer.
If a police officer walks up to you, they now own your time, right? And so whatever they want you to do, you now have to stop, and do whatever they say, or they have the right to shoot you, even if you weren't breaking any laws. Am I clear?
The officer doesn't want to shoot anybody if for no other reason than the piles of paperwork it causes, but they also just want to get home to their families safe at the end of their shift.
"Wow, paperwork, what a drag. Forget about the poor bloke that I just shot, and his family, me getting back to my family is much more important, because, well, I'm a cop!"
Make their job easier by not acting in ways that get interpreted as threatening and you are more likely to walk away, even if an officer is having a bad day.
Making their job easier is now my job, and allows me the possibility of walking away. And if an officer is having a bad day, that should grant him/her an allowance. Not me though, because, well, I'm not a cop. Cops should never take into consideration that we're all humans and everyone has bad days.
Treat them with respect, even if only to protect yourself, because they are only human and make mistakes.
Again, treat them with respect, to protect yourself. Because hey, maybe they're having a bad day, and shooting you just relieves some tension. I mean, they're only human cops. You're just a human non-cop.
In the vanishingly few instances where an officer makes a mistake in judgment, most departments are quick to correct the failure.
You obviously haven't been watching the news in the last 5 years.
My advice is to choose to live, don't get yourself shot by getting crosswise with the police today, so you can complain and get the problem addressed when it's all over.
The problem today is a combination of how we discipline (or lack thereof) people when they're children, and how we discipline people when they're adults. Of course, I'm assuming that you'd be okay with a teacher shooting a child at school who has an attitude because, well, authority.

Sounds fine. Not like a concert, but certainly good enough to enjoy on a CD.
