Geez, where to begin. One problem that I had was in not beating some skank senseless because she and her A-hole boyfriend, were cooking meth in the house, while her three little kids sat no more than ten feet away.......

While working at a Condo Complex, I heard screams for help coming from a second floor unit.  I immediately notified my supervisors, requesting they notify local PD and request assistance as I continued hearing screams of a woman.  I deeply desired to kick the door in when no one would come to the door as I announced myself and the cries continued, but having no backup present all my training (what little I had) said you don't enter a possible domestic by yourself.  PD arrived shortly thereafter and knocked on the door identifying themselves.  The two officers went inside and found two women had been in an intense "arguement".  As there were no visible marks and the less dominant one wouldn't press any charges.

About three yeard ago i came across a young teen 16 years of age , he had a stab wound in his back approx 1/2 in. from his spine. And bleeding all over the shopping center floor, trying to get to his mother who worked in one of the stores. the cause turned out to be three males he turned in for breaking and entering, showed up to get back at him

Had to roll around in the dirt with a Meth head after he assaulted me when I tried to interview him about why he was tresspassing on private property.


He grabbed my (3) D-Cell Mag Light out of my hand and tried to beat me over the head with it...luckily I had just gotten out of the service and was still very proficient in Brazillian Ju-Jistu...I put him in the rear-nakid choke until my partner cuffed him up.


Oh, and my first day as an armed officer my weapon cleared the holster...but that's another story...


 


Ahhh, how I miss Yakima, Washington....

Currently, my position is extremely dangerous....


I run the risk of severe papercuts ever time I have to print out a document for reporting purposes, and just yesterday got a nastry cramp in my right hand because the mouse wouldn't work properly. I also suffer from mutiple puncture wounds in both eyelids due to the weight of my eyelids versus the tenslie strength of the toothpicks that I'm issued to prop them open with...


Of course 20 years ago, I was indoctrinated into wearing concealable body armor while working an armed solo security post that was a high gang activity area on the swing shift in the summertime of Phoenix, AZ.... dehydration and insults for being a "wanna-be" were the menu of the day.


Too many youngsters get their hands on firearms without proper supervision. Keep your guns secure from ALL unauthorized persons! Lets stop burying children - PLEASE (jal.fast@yahoo.com)

My biggest fear is getting shot while I’m working the back of the truck while I’m working my$$ off while trying to watch my back at the same time.  There are times when I’m pushing a thousand pounds (not exaggerating) into a bank when I’m pretty much defenseless.  My only hope is my guard holding a shotgun is somewhat competent.

Attempting to arrest someone with intent to distribute Crack!!!!  He had just smoked a dipper (cig dipped in PCP water)!!! Emptied a can of OC and bent my ASP!!!!  He weighed a buck fifty and actually picked me up (250) and crushed a windshield!!! After that he layed on the hood of the car and went to sleep!!!!

Aside from chasing 20lb possums out of motel stairwells with a broom (Hope nobody sent that to America's Funniest Videos), encountering drunks, hookers, kids making out, weirdo's, a horned owl that tried to steal my cheeseburger off the hood of the car with me eating it, coyotes, bear, dumbasses unauthorized to be where they were, a wolf that looked to be 140lbs, what could be more fun. It there's a drunk in the middle of a stream on a rock taking a whiz in front of a motel, someone trying to steal from a construction site, lost tourists (OMG...not again!....stay out of the wet pavement paint!). Drunk college kids with green spiked hair, flat tires from nails, etc....If there's trouble, it follows me like an ominous cloud...LOL

I fear that the person I'm suppose to take care is injured on my watch, or that I stop an individual for trespassing or stealing that he becomes violent and attempts to injured me or a co-worker.

I'm a lost hillbilly here...If that one chick in the middle is actually in charge and pulling the invisible strings of the hooker girls, what's Jimmy Hendrix's roll here...and what the hell is he playing? I've seen drinking gords pretty good size but ain't never seen one varnished or shellacked and played like a banjo before... out here in the country, some homeowner would probably use a suitable application of bird-shot outta 12 guage if he found these on his property. He'd probably keep the hookers for himself though...LMFAO.
