COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of July 3, 2015


Stories from the week of July 3, 2015

Limited Window — I was sitting at the Chipotle’s at Union Station, sitting where every customer would be able to read the shirt, when the young lady said, “10 seconds. GO!”


“We can arrest more pedophiles, if we don’t waste time on a green plant. Kids should not have a job selling, which gets them shot.” (my standard response).   Hearing that she engaged me in  a 1 minute of chat,  before she had to order her food.


TV Producer calls: COP was honored on Monday with email from the associate producer of an HBO TV program now in its xth season.   She liked the website, made contact – asking for names and contacts of current LE who had changed their minds on the Drug War and were still carrying a badge, are a judge, a prosecutor etc.


I carved out some time to send her 4 names with brief CVs and will provide the rest this weekend. I was crazy busy this week.


Forgot he was black, oops: Making a point with an Ohio staffer, my dialog is: ‘During the time when the speed limit was 55, I enforced that. The feds provided my dept. with many thousands of dollars for the OT pay. Bad law, as 20 years of kids doing this: “Daddy, what is that on the dash?” It is a radar detector son and tells me when the cops are around (with the voice inflection of anger). Daddy, I thought the police were our friends {at this point I stopped, realized the staffer was black and I said, “this story probably won’t work for you,..can you pretend? sure]…the cops are our friends except for this stupid speed limit.’


I make the point that when the law is really bad, citizens find a way to go around the law or simply break the law (MJ laws). Either way, such laws are not good for society.


The awkwardness of the moment was just that ‘a moment.’ We had a solid chat after my presentation. What my profession has been doing the last 12 months makes me want to cry.


On the radio: Tomorrow, July 4th at 1 PM EDT and again 7 EDT my interview with Bill be aired.
