COP ARROGANCE – The Flip Side

Last Sunday, I went to early church with my wife.  She went in ahead of me.  There were about 500 cars in the lot. While I sat there for a few minutes, I was approached by a young cop in a short sleeve shirt (it was cold outside).   He explained that he was looking for people who had left valuable packages on their car seat while in church. He was leaving them notes to remind them to put their packages out of sight, so that they woudn’t return to a broken window at the end of Mass. I was...

The Jerks in Sacramento can …

THEY CAN KISS MY ASS For many days recently, there have been crowds of people in Sacramento, California who are all wound up. They are marching in the streets. They are carrying signs, some of which make no sense. In some places, they have trampled on the rights of others by blocking roadways and entrances to public buildings. Of course, the media hypes this stuff to the hilt. Politicians use it as an opportunity for free publicity. The ‘Al Sharpton’ types use it to create discord. Both groups use it for fund raising.

What Do We Do With BROKEN Cops?

We have all watched them:  the Cop Shows: COPS, NCIS, CSI, Live PD and others.  If you are really old, you may remember DRAGNET with Jack Webb and Harry Morgan. Viewers got really excited watching car chases (through the streets of San Francisco), gun fights, brawls, foot pursuits over fences and a whole host of other obstacles. Recalling those scenes, most folks understand it when they heard someone say, “Cop work is a young man’s job.” I recall during my academy one of the instructors say that, “Cop work is 7½ hours of boredom mixed with 30 minutes of...
