 Should we treat training guns like real guns?
 Fla. officer stops gunman after shooting
 Sept. 7, 2012
Dear PoliceOne Member,

As soon as you hit send on an email or hit enter on a social media website, your comment is essentially etched in Internet stone. Being reprimanded (or worse) for Internet "free speech" is an issue that seems to come up again and again. In the news lineup today is an item about a cop suspended for 'liking' a firefighter's Facebook post (which, ironically, has already garnered more than 50 comments here on PoliceOne).

After you check that out, I encourage you to also review the excellent tip from Dave Smith from late last year. It just so happens that next week is the SMILE Conference, an event devoted to social media, the Internet and Law Enforcement initiatives. If you're at SMILE, send us your thoughts and observations. We'll compile them with our coverage of the event.
