When I think of reading and professional development, two great quotes from Otto von Bismarck put it well:
“Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”
“Fools learn from experience. I prefer to learn from the experience of others.”
One of the great podcast I enjoy is Policing Matters, a great source of law enforcement issues. And this linked podcast reminded me, again, to listen to a man's full statement before I pass judgement. In this episode, Jim Dudley speaks with retired Los Angeles Sheriff's Office Commander Sid Heal. He discussed options for "non-lethal" force, AKA "intermediate force," for cops on the street.
My wife is one me about binge buying books quickly. Well, I immediately ordered Concepts of Non-lethal Force, and put it on my "to read" shelf. Actually, fully stocked five level book shelf. And by Sunday I'll be reading this.
Have a great weekend.
