Acronyms commonly used

Acronyms, the use of letters which represent something, usually forming a catchy phrase.  When I was in the military they were famous for acronyms.

The law enforcement, fire protection, and emergency medical professions use these too.  There are the commonly used ones.  As an example, SWAT (special weapons and tactics), FTO (field training officer), SRO (School Resource Officer - you know the 21 jump street cops in uniforms at our local high schools).

Then there are those "unofficial" acronyms we use.  Now some of these may offend you, tough. That's just the way it is in our world.  Before you yell "racist pig" let me tell you that I'm of mixed ethnicity, part Anglo Saxon mixed in with some other minority ethnicity's.  For those of you out there with simple minds, I'm a mutt.

So don't even try to play the race card.  All race cards expired January 20, 2009 (hint hint).  So here goes the "unofficial police acronyms"

HUA = Head Up Ass
DWO = Driving While Other (races are described as white, black, asian and other)
DWA = Driving While Asian
FOAD = Fuck Off And Die
WTF = What The Fuck
AFU = All Fucked Up
LLPOF = Liar Liar Pants On Fire
KMA = Kiss My Ass
KMMFA = Kiss My Mother Fuckin Ass
AMF = Adios Mother Fuckers
AMFYOYO = Adios Mother Fuckers You're On Your Own
BOHICA = Bend Over Here It Comes Again
Adam Henry = Ass Hole or Aggressive and Hostile when explaining in court the driver's demeanor.
RALB = Riding Around Looking Bitchin 
OWOT = Organized Waste Of Time (usually referred to our motor training by the patrol guys)

I'm sure there are more out there that other agencies and safety professions use.
