    Next time you have your boy with ya, an see a cop at a gas station, etc.... ask'em to turn on his blue lights for your boy.........My little girl loves the blue lights.

    Something I feel you need to instill in your kids is that idiots and great men run though all classes, so don't judge on job/race/gender/etc.

    Well......................................................

    Story time. About a year ago, I had to go to a house and hook a guy on a warrant. Several months later, I made a stop and it was the same guy, this time his family was with him and his kid, about the same age freaked. He thought I was taking daddy to jail. Well, and if there is anyone out there that has the ambition to this job, here's a little bit of advice. There's a time to be nice and there's a time to be an asshole in this job. I would like to think that I might have that skill honed to a fine edge cause the day I took daddy to jail, he didn't give me any trouble and that night, he remembered that day. So he asked me if I would talk to the kid and after several minutes, the kid was talking to me and all of that good stuff. A few months later, I had to go to this guy's house to investigate something. I wasn't arresting him nor was he a suspect in anything, he was actually the reporting party. Best part was the kid remembered me and waved and smiled and all of that good stuff.

    Bad story time though. About a week ago, we had to go to a domestic. Kid called 911, said the guy was hitting mommy. We got there, there was no signs of violence so we wasn't hauling anyone away. Turns out the kid freaked cause mommy and boyfriend was fighting and the kid's dad, whoever he may be, used to beat on mommy and the kid was scared. There was four of us there and we all tried to talk to the kid, but he was scared of us. You can probably guess why, for we do not know the reason, but we can probably guess also.

    Yes, the pursuits, the bar fights, the drunks, the drug busts and all of that stuff is fun and exciting; but the PR stuff with kids like the first story, that just makes the job all that better.

    I absolutley hate when I work this extra job at a store here in town. It never fails some jack@ss tells their kid (who is acting up) That the policeman over there is going to take them to jail if they do not behave. It make me so angry at the parent that I want to thell the kid, No bud, you can't go to jail because you mommy doesnt know how to be a parent.

    ARGGGGGHHHH. It just pisses me off to think that these dumb@ss "parents" make the kids afraid of the police because they cant handle thier kids. :mad:
