By Rick Markley, FireRescue1 Editor in Chief I began firefighting later in life than most. And I recall one particular Firefighter I and II instructor often making disparaging remarks about cops — in a joking manner. Watching the video of the bench-clearing brawl at a FDNY vs NYPD charity hockey game makes me wonder how many of those younger fire cadets in my class took the instructor's jokes to heart. How many accepted that as an attitude they had to assume in order to be accepted?
