    Yes, politicians are another subset of predators.
    Lawyers, bail bondsmen, IRS agents, heroin dealers, bankers, pimps, judges ... I avoid them all.
    I don't want to be friends with any of these beings, I don't even want to be in the same room.

    I remember as a younger man, chasing pu ... um women. I had a probie gf take me to 'friends' house for dinner. Found out DURING the dinner that the guy is an IRS agent.
    I couldn't eat. Tried - couldn't. I knew that the food on that table was there at the expense of much misery of my fellow citizens. I couldn't eat it.
    I told them I was ill, and had to leave.
    I told probie GF that I didn't want to see her any more. Her judgement and taste in friends was suspect.

    No, sorry buddy. In American English "peace officer" is an obsolete job description. It was accurate back when the USA was a free country. It is no longer used. Our cops do not ensure the peace - sometimes they do the opposite, they ensure chaos. NOW, they are income producing gang members - just like the Crips or the Hells Angels. They protect other brothers in their 'club' while generating money and further the exercise of power. They are gang members.
    We don't have "characters" working as cops here. We have thugs.

    Dogs, including normal non-service animal pets, and dangerous lunatics are all welcome passengers for me as long as I get paid. I actually like the dogs.

    I don't mind pax carrying guns.

    He could write you tickets while riding in the back seat. That would be a penile move, but I bet some would also enjoy doing it. Mods won't let write the D word , lame!

    NRA myth of the gun-free zone killer

    "Among the 62 mass shootings over the last 30 years that we studied, not a single case includes evidence that the killer chose to target a place because it banned guns."

    Use your brain and stop spoutting mindless NRA arms dealer funded propaganda.

    And how many children have died from playing with a loaded firearm in the home of good people too stupid to keep their gun unloaded and locked up.

    Oh, that's right, the gun lobby has prevented Govt from collecting and publication of those statistics. I wonder why.

    More guns, more dead children. Plain and simple.

    Unless the officer was in uniform, if I'm not allowed to be armed, I'm not going to take a plainclothes individual with a visible weapon in my backseat with me unprotected. I understand I'm sure more times than I'd like to consider, someone has been in my backseat with a concealed weapon. Nothing much we can do about that... but if it's visible, I'm not taking that chance.

    If he's in uniform, I'd be ok with that but not sure why a uniformed officer would need an Uber...

    If he jumped in and said "Follow that car!" Hell yea I'd follow car, i've always wanted to be in a police chase!

    I don't mind weapons however people seem to forget that some "Good people" with guns suddenly turn into "Bad people" with guns. Many of the largest shootings have been committed by people without a record so how can you tell who is good or bad.

    While there may not be "evidence" that the target chosen was a gun free zone, it just happens to work out that way, just about all the time. Purely coincidence I'm sure.

    I invented an app, that would easily track "good guys with guns".
    "Good guys" were blue, "Bad guys" were red. I assumed this would be a big moneymaker considering how hot of a topic it is.
    I couldn't bring the app to market, because the "good guys" kept changing to "bad guys" and back during stressful situations.
    Traffic incidents, after the most minor of fights, domestic incidents, depression/suicide, etc...
    Too many "good guys with a gun" kept changing to bad guys whenever something stressful triggered it. So I trashed the experiment and I'm driving Uber with a degree in social psychology barely making minimum-wage...

    I just kind a want to be clear here. Did you cancel him because he was a cop? Or did you cancel him because he had a gun??

    Because your post seems to be more bragging about canceling because he was a cop.

    Another poorly written and therefore incomprehensible policy by Uber.

    I live in a state where concealed carry is legal with a permit, and open carry is legal without a permit. Basically, any adult (with a few restrictions that apply in very specific situations) can carry a gun. Therefore if no one is permitted by Uber to carry a gun in a vehicle except when "permitted by applicable law," then all Uber drivers and riders in the state of Nevada may carry a gun.

    Let's be even more clear, did you see the gun or simply assume he had a gun because he said he was an off-duty LEO?
