Yet another negative impact of the war in Iraq: It is now reported that there has been a spike in attacks against police officers by soldiers and marines returning from the war. The really scary thing is that these are not "fight to escape" incidents, they are "stand and fight" incidents. It is sad, actually, since we always feel a brotherhood with military personnel. I guess PTSD is the culprit. In any case, several precinct partners have said this is on the upswing. How tragic to have ...

I bet every cop out there, at least in big cities, has the neighborhood prostitute. Sure she is a street walker, but mostly she is just a bit mental, and usually likes to talk to the police (lonely? I'm not sure). Always a wave and a smile, with those few teeth left. Ours is Chrissie (not real name). Last week she waves me and my partner down in the squad car. "I got ripped off! I was raped!" "What happened Chrissie?" "This guy I work with had sex with me and didn't pay. That' ...

During the first several years that I was on the Sheriff's Department I worked both the Beaufort side of the county and the Hilton Head side. Often when I worked Hilton Head there were only two of us or at the most three of us working at one time. We learned to handle many types of calls by ourselves just because there were many times a back-up was not available. Sometimes your back-up was twenty or thirty miles away. It would be nice to think that the public, the people you are trying to help, ...

In Phoenix, AZ looking for a murder suspect. We had a few local cops with us, but basically it was us. I was wearing jeans and a Hawaiian shirt; my partner was about the same. We pull up to a house where the suspect's father lives. He says they guy is not home, so we ask for permission to search. He says sure. Once inside, we find no suspect... At the last minute, I see a body-sized duffle bag. It is a long shot, but I show my partner the bag and we quietly agree that we should open ...
