So You Want to be the Police: What You Can Learn From My Latest Seven Day Work Week

And other fun facts

So, you want to be the police, huh? Let me give you some insight into what you will face if you decide to get behind the badge. I just worked a seven day work week. It’s not the first and won’t be the last. This one was by choice. I volunteered to work a warrant round-up on my days off for time and a half. After all, they pay me like a policeman. After working this seven day work week, and listening to mostly talk radio during the day, I have come to a startling conclusion. According to the Barack Obama administration, working for seven straight twelve hour days is a form of torture.

The English philosopher Herbert Spencer said, “The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.” With every passing day that I work, I am more convinced that the human race has defeated natural selection. The majority of my time at work is spent shielding men from the effects of folly. As the years have passed, I have watched as juvenile delinquents have grown to convicted felons, and begin to raise their very own future convicted felons. In years past these people would have been hanged in the town square for rustling cattle or something. The gene pool needs an enema. Maybe swine flu will help me out with that.

Once you reach a certain level of crazy, we should be able to put you down like a rabid dog. Once you exhibit symptoms of being a dangerous crazy person, the responding officers should be able to just end it, right there, for the sake of the community. I’m sure you’re wondering who would make the determination of what is “too crazy”? Well, that’s easy. Me, of course. I would be good at that job.

I spent some time working with some guys from the United States Marshall’s Service. I let one of them borrow my pen, and I never got it back. Let this be a lesson to you. Every time you let the Federal government borrow one of your freedoms for the sake of safety, it will end up wherever my pen is.

  1. I’m currently in day 8 of 12 straight, but at least it’s not as stressful as what you do

  2. We are the Federal Government and we are here to help.

  3. First. I always enjoy your posts. Your writing style is unique and entertaining, not to mention educational.
    Thanks for reading and responding to the taser article I published on AC.
    Of course I realize the taser’s intended use. My AC article is directed more toward those outside the law enforcement community. As an after thought, I probably should have covered the graduated use of force concept for non LEO readers.
    Your comments are always welcome and constructive critism is appreciated.

    Yea I’ve been “tortured” a goodly part of my life. Mostly by the FED. Wish I had known they was being cruel and unusual when I was being torutred up in the service. Apperently “torturin” citizens is OK. “Torture” a terrorizer and you get rabid liberal lazy fuks all upset foaming at the mouth.

    One could realize being TAXed outa your half your wages is “torture”. Some how I dont think the MAN will get that “enlightened” though.

    Yea G-men will steal whatever aint tied down sorry about your Pen.

    I’m always interested in graduating. I see NO nightsticks anymore other than that Mag light.. Is the tazer consider less that or greater force than a nightstick?
