Police work is dangerous and unfortunately mistakes are made. I sat with a real hero while in the hospital who trains
Officers for the NYPD. We discussed how our apprehensions are done. It is a controlled setting as the person has passed through a metal detector. The person is surrounded by an overwhelming number and it is handled calmly with a degree of professionalism and even empathy.
We had one and I asked my boss if we had to. Yes the person had clearly committed a heinous crime and deserved to be locked up. He was also supporting disabled children. In reality sometimes our criminal cases have shades of gray rather than black and white. When I have to have someone arrested it is only after careful research and consideration.
Unlike my office, the streets are not controlled. However, I want to go over this from a different perspective. When I lived in Vermont, I found myself profiled. I was frequently stopped by the local police. Admittedly, this is a pain
In the rear. However, at all times I was respectful. Admittedly, there was a misunderstanding about what police thought they saw. A drunk female Killer legs dropped a cigarette that was until. The police saw her head go into my lap area and they thought the worst. I remember in disbelief when the police thought I was getting oral sex while driving. Anyone who has seen the world according to Garp knows this is a bad idea. No matter how I tried to explain that one the locals did not believe it.
