Not Much Better

I honestly think I will be seeing the commander again with one, if not more, of my troops.

My supervisor just about nailed one of my troops the other night after he saw the kid walking around without gear or a weapon.  This is the same kid that was recently reprimanded after accidentally discharging his weapon.  The last thing he needs to be doing is pissing off my supervisor.  It was the third time in two days that I have had to talk to my troop about his behavior.  He just does not seem to have common sense.  I hope he turns it around, but I am beginning to think that he is going to be my first real problem troop.

Another troop ended up in my cross hairs after he gave me some attitude.  The troop mentioned above evidently left his gear in this guy's car and never thought to get it out, despite the fact it is getting colder at night.  I told him after shift the other morning to make sure the other troop got his gear back.  This kid decides that he does not want to and tells me that if the other troop is not smart enough to retrieve the gear, then it is not his problem.  I reminded him that I was not requesting that he give the other troop's gear back; I was telling him to, or giving him a direct order to.  I find out tomorrow night whether or not it actually happened.  We will see.  I have a feeling this troop will be a handful if he continues to think he can say and do whatever he pleases.
