COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of April 6, 2018

Fancy meeting you here: On my way to the next presentation who pops out of the elevator? My nemesis – Kevin Sabet of SAM. We chatted for 3-4 catching up, he introduced me to his colleague and the world would never have known we are serious adversaries….and we also professionals. We met years ago, broke bread in Vienna and he is not a two-headed monster…..He simply is paid a lot of money to spin how horrible Colorado is and I volunteer to distribute the facts.

Respect: After Grover’s meeting I was waiting on the platform for the next metro train. A young, black man asked me why? I responded with the usual response; ‘18 teens/young people are shot every day, due to selling drugs off sidewalks. That is immoral and wrong.’ He looked at me thoughtfully for a few seconds, reached out for my hand, we shook and then he brought me in for a shoulder bump. And he walked away. Memorable moment in my DC career.
