I wanted to give my thanks! I might sound odd, but I came to realize many years ago how greteful I am for my own growing process and for law enforcement doing their jobs. I am so grateful, I wanted to become an officer becaue I thought they did such great work. That's initially why I joined here and started at a university. But, I have been arrested a few time, and had to find other ways to give back to society (which is very possible). So I changed my major and continued with my inspiration.


Had it not been for being arrrested, who knows where I would be now. Probably in much worse shape. You see, I became involved with the wrong crowd as the typical rebelious teens does, whom has been handed down some bad "hereditary" apples so to speak. Well, my few years with this wrong crowd and the few introductions I had with law enforcement were truly a light in a dark cave. When my so-called friends and even some family were showing me and telling me one thing, the officers and judges were telling me another. I can not recall anyone telling me "you can do better than that"( while being sober/clean) before it was an officer and a judge. Those people taught me how to be held accountable for my actions, while encouraging me to do better. It was as if these people whom I had been taught were "not cool" had the most hope for  me, and I was able to look at them to see a new direction to take my life.


This gratitude dates back to now 11 years, so it is past due. BUT...Thank You for Being there to all laws.

Thanks for your support, changing ones self is not an easy task.


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

Crystal, thanks for deciding to give back to society.  I am curious to know what path you took to do that.

 Thank you for your support.  It's good to hear that you were able to turn your life around, which is not easy at all.  I am also curious as to what path you have chosen for yourself now.

This is quite a declaration.


If what you say is true, then, on behalf of all law enforcement personnel on this site and elsewhere, .... you're very welcome.


In a career that spans many years, I can recall a handful of sincere and intelligent comments of gratitude. One in particular was from a guy who I arrested. I don't even recall the crime or his name. But he saw me at the carwash and shook my hand. He told me that it was me that helped him get turned around.


I only mention this because all cops have at least one story like this. The gratitude lingers much longer than the name, the incident or even the year !


Continue on with your positive attitude, Glennburg, and let your life be a good example to all citizens.


10-8...


The Guy !

Well, I wanted to fight crime, but as reality and accountability would have it I will be fighting crime without a gun or badge. I will be going to the root of the problem using my wits, and attempting to stop young people from becoming lifelong convicts. 


You know Sarge, I do not even know the officers names, nor the judge in particular just as you mentioned But, that might be a good thing then I might have accepted it 'as a person' instead of accepting 'the process' of my experiences. Though I am sure I could find out, they record that stuff you know :> (who and what) 


To answer a few questions... "I am also curious as to what path you have chosen for yourself now."..."I am curious to know what path you took to do that". 


A growing process is not fast, nor simple but a transformation all together. I ahd been working at a conveneince store, as I did for many years. But, during my growth process I noticed many teens/ young people (just a few years younger than me) who seemed desperate for advice. They did not even know me, but they would sit with me while I worked, and listen and ask and often confide. I saw the need, and they seemed drawn to me. My heart has continued to grow for the cause since then. I have gained a new found faith in people and God and intende to rein in as many as possible!


I started my third year last October towards my BA in sociology with Ashford University, with goals to get involved in the local boys and girls ranch (Gulf Coast Trade Center/ Raven School), social services (to offer protection to those being harmed), and whatever else possible to reach out to these youths to attempt to convince them to change their course, and life can be and is GOOD.


Thank ya'll for your awesome responses. Much love xoxoxoxo
