    I disagree with you Hal, those Men and Women put thei lives on the Line whenever the walk out of their home to go to Work, and they are due SOME respect, you and i are NOT and have NEVER did that job, my Dad Did, and saw through him what it was like when people respected you for what you were doing.

    May Nights (early Mornings) My Mom would be in Tears, when there was aknock on the House, and a voice saying “Chief!!! Come and take me over” it was a Criminal asking my Dad to take him Over to District “A” Station, and why??? if my Dad took him and Booked him in, he was NOT Beaten, as my dad would make then sign for him with MO Injuries at all.

    those incidents cost ho though, and that is why i refused to become a Cop, because i wabted to do the Job like he did it, and i could see the changes tnat were coming.

    The magistrate has NO Leaway, the Laws is the Law, and until it is Changed, we have to abide by them.
