I Was A Cop...
"I was a police officer; I'm retired now. I seen the worst of the worst and the best of the best, but all I can say is that if everybody 'loved thy neighbor,' and really paid attention, life would be much better."
"What made you want to become a cop?"
"It was either that or join the military. I always thought of myself as protector. When I was four or five years old, my mother and father used to tell me, but I remember, too, that I'd put on the marching music, put on my little army uniform and my play rifle, and I'd march back and forth in the living room for hours. Maybe it was the time I was born in--1963--you'd see the Viet Nam War on the news all the time and World War II wasn't that far beyond... I always felt a need to protect people."
