I have heard them, direct from the PC to me, and when I said well, in FL, they issue the same unrestricted license in Miami that they do in Apalachicola, I got told "Well, when something happens in FL they go after the State, here, they go after us", to which I countered "Then it's just about you covering your ass then, nothing more, isn't it? It has nothing to do with "Public Safety", or anything else" Silence. Firemanvin was there, he heard it too
