When you or off and out spending time with your family and someone comes up to you and says I remember you. You arrested me before. Thats why I am always armed.


amen brother, about the only place i am not armed is at church (and even sometimes at church)

You may want to reconsider that exemption in light of the recent church shootings.



I am the only Tennessee State Trooper who arrested a man on the steps of a church because he wanted in to talk to a policeman.  The story opens in Dandridge, Tennessee, as the ushers are passing around the collection plates.  I notice that the head deacon are spending a long time talking to the pastor and they keep looking at me. 


After we sing the little song that comes after the money is brought to the front.  I notice that the pastor is taking an inordinate amount of time in preparing to deliver the sermon and he keeps looking at me.  I figure that he is going to ask me to deliver the congregational prayer at the end of the sermon. 


I feel a hand on my arm and I look up to see the head deacon who asks me to come to the back of the church.  We step outside and this disheveled man wearing only a pair of shower clogs and a pair of cutoff blue jeans was on the steps at the door.  He kept telling me he needs to see a cop. 


After the fifth time of telling him, I pulled out my S&W .357 and my shield, he then said we need to talk inside.  The smell of alcohol on his breath is stronger than his BO.  I told him we could not go inside with him dressed as he was, he then said that he would talk to me at a jail.  I had to arrest him for Public Drunkeness.  I had the head deacon to get his car and pull it up front.  I gave my carkeys to one of the ushers and ask if he would pass them to my wife and that I would be home as soon as I can.


The deacon pulls up in an old VW.  I ride in the back with the cull as I did not want him to be able to choke me.  Long-story short; he had spent a three day weekend huffing paint and drinking while camping at the lake.  He was a member of a very prominent family who sent him off to re-hab and dry out.

You know your in training / trying to be a leo when you are sitting on the bench at the dojo and Sensi walks up and gives his back to you, and all you can think about is how you'd cuff them from the rear....


I'd love to have a battle of wits with you, but you appear unarmed.

You know you're no longer a rookie when a dirtbag calls you a PIG and instead of busting his head you reply, "Yep that's spelt P.I.G. It stands for professionalism, Integrity and Guts. Thanks for the compliment, come with me.

My usual response was, "Yes, I am a pig, now.  But in twenty years, I will take off my badge and uniform when I retire.  Then I will no longer be a pig.  You, however, will be a wothless POS until the day you die."  I was never debated on that response for the rest of my career.

When you are out with the family at a mall or restaurant and you are wondering how many and who has warrants on them?


When you are driving with your spouse and you try to turn on the overheads to pull over the traffic violation in front of you.


When you are sitting at home and wondering how busy your department is.

Y.K.Y.(Were) A.L.O.W.  .........  You go to the Wal-Mart Super Store in the neighboring town, Walk in, See a mixed bag of Humanity... Only to Have EVERYONE say "Good Evening Officer" as you wander by ..............    and You've been retired for 5 years.


(Actually Happened to me)


--------------------------------------------------------


Y.K.Y.A.L.O.W.  .........  Before I retired, I was in the local grocery store in Civilian Clothes and a lady I barely knew said loudly " I didn't recognize you with your clothes on" 


  Everyone turned around and looked.


  I said "Thanks" and made a break for the door.   :)

I did the same only in reverse.  For some oddball reason, my wife sent me to a grocery store to get something.  I kept noticing that the wife of another LEO was staring at me trying to figure who I was.  I waited until she was in an aisle with a lot of people.  I walked up to her and said, "Don't you recognize me with my clothes on?"  She stammered and stuttered until i mentioned my name.  Her response was, "Now I recognize you."

WHEN ...u get commended for showing up at work. When you have a cold, and routinely blow your nose using toilet paper from rolls found in any police car, or on any desk, and you think this is a normal, rational, hygienic behavior. There are more people in the operations room than working on the street. You have two pairs of uniform pants; one for every other week. You come home after last-out more rested than when you got there. You don't tell your spouse about the Holiday and Uniform checks. You know exactly where to get anything that's free. "No Radio Transmissions" means you start clicking the radio a block away, just in case. You've driven a police vehicle with an expired inspection sticker. The "Check Engine" lights has been on in the patrol car for six months, and you think the other squads are a bunch of bums for not taking it to the garage. You think the most beautiful word in the dictionary is "unfounded". You drive a five-year-old police car with 180,000 miles on it, and it's considered new. You are sure you are not a raciest, sexist or homophone because you hate everyone equally



I had to move my toilet paper to the side to get to the key board.   Hell its softer them Scotts and last a lot longer too.

You Know Your A Law Enforcement Officer (FUTURE) When.. you see an officer in streets and stop to stare at his/her weapon to see if you can figure out what type of Glock it is.


I find myself doing this OFTEN lately.

...when it takes you, a bondsman and another uniform officer to effect the arrest of a guy in a small, crowded bedroom.  Upon returning home, your husband asks, "Well, honey; what did you do today?"  And you smartly reply (as I did), "Well dear, I was rolling around in bed with three men today."

When you arrest a guy and he resists...so you spray him and he runs...and you chase him and have to use force to contain him...and he doesn't make a complaint but instead he whines to the media...and the department decides that constitutes a complaint so you find yourself under investigation.


Still waiting to find out if I will be charged.

You know you are (trying to be) a Law Enforcement Officer when you can walk around the town with your boyfriend, see a foot patrol, check him out from head to toe and have your boyfriend ask what gun/taser was he carrying


I'd love to have a battle of wits with you, but you appear unarmed.
