It's been a long day...

As I was walking out of the office after a 14 hour day (extra job this morning) I saw a quote about police that the night shift roll call sergeant put up in his office. Says a lot about the job.
“There is no "nice" way to arrest a potentially dangerous, combative suspect. The police are our bodyguards, our hired fists, batons and guns. We pay them to do the dirty work of protecting us, the work we're too afraid, too unskilled or too civilized to do ourselves. We expect them to keep the bad guys out of our businesses, cars and houses, out of our faces. We want them to "take care of the problem." We just don't want to see how it's done.

Charles Webb, Ph.D.”
At the end of watch I got called to a Taser shooting (naked women off her phych meds) and they had to take care of business. And we know we were being video taped. And she was screaming, “I”m gonna sue you…” and a few other choice words. Gotta love it. Can't really go much past that. I'm wasted and I really need to get some sleep.

The Houston area is boring two cops this week. Stay safe out there.
