COP on the Hill:

Stories from the week of April 14, 2023


Solid Question: Difficult/Painful Answer:

For the first time in the history of the world, a staffer asked me, if I had had a moment/epiphany in my career that caused me to become anti- drug war.  This after 20 minutes of xcl discussion on the drug war.  I paused and related the story (see below) and SOB, I choked up, hard.  I went on to state that my profession was missing pedophiles, as we wasted so much time on drugs, choking up again, damn near in tears.

He then related being an assistant District Attorney in a very large city.  One of the first cases he caught involved child porn (story below: Trigger Warning – it is v v ugly).  Both of us became emotional and we had a long pause, before we finished the chat.

The Good News is that I am still able to be a human being from time to time versus a robot going from presentation to presentation, now more than 5,000 since I arrive here in 2005.
