Here's a favourite uote oh they're so cynical those cops you know You should fight like hell if you get attacked on the street or in your home The old thinking was especially with women submit give in maybe the guy will give you a break and not kill you Now maybe you will get raped but least you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you didn't just lie down and take it You don't know how many home invasion scenes we walk in on where the people are sitting there all tied up and all dead There'll be four five people a family maybe some guests enough to put up a fight And you know they let themselves get tied up You just know the guys said 'We just want to tie you up We won't hurt you' You'd think the people would realize — why do they want to tie us up if they don't want to hurt us But they bought it It always gives us a little chuckleAnd they have interesting first hand insights With offenders who molest kids you pick up that they genuinely love kidsPeople go Somebody who really likes kids couldn't possibly do this This nice day care centre owner this nice coach People get confused at that But paedophiles genuinely love kids and they have a sexual desire for kidsHere's a favourite I was new on the force and I had my first death notification I had to tell a woman that her husband had just been killed I just dreaded doing this I remember sitting in the suad car in front of this woman's house trying to get what I had to say exactly right I sat there for about half an hour mentally composing what I had to say So I go up to the front door I'm so nervous A woman answers it and I start It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that your husband has been killed She looks at me and says What did you just say Oh no I start again It is my unfortunate duty Wait wait You just wait right there I gotta wake up my kidsSo I'm standing there feeling miserable I hear her yell through the house Kids Get up come in here They all come in Now tell them what you just told me So i do and they all start hugging each other and dancing around Officer you just gave us the best news that rotten son of a bitch is dead at last

Omicide dicks stick cigarette filters up their nostrils; Only two kinds of people stare at other people nuts police If you want to be safe on the streets make eye contact says another; The only Americans who have ever accepted the metric system are the dope dealers says a 3rd; There is no bottom There is no low You never know what you're going to see next laments a 4th so on Not uite as candid that is self critical as Mark Baker's similar 1985 oral report Cops NB Fletcher's sister is a cop but still an engrossing hard nosed briefing from the men in blue Kirkus edit. This was a great book; a lot of the insights have stayed with me through the years Especially thoughts on pedophiles they genuinely love children and that is why they are drawn to professions with children teachers coaches etc Scary insights into the human psyche by the people who see us at our best and our worst

What Cops KnowChicago cops from beat walkers to brass provide an intense nose to navel confrontation with society's underbelly She arranges her material into six sections The Street Violent Crimes Sex Crimes Narcotics Property Crimes Organized Crime each offering commentary that regrettably is credited not individually but only to the score or so cops given brief biographies at each chapter's end The testimony itself is what you'd expect from cops punchy sad blackly hud nearly always interesting There are different ways to handle the smell at a scene explains one cop A lot of h. A different kind of book altogether Knowing what a cop knows seeing what they see feeling what they feel diving into the midst of their experiences Eye opening interesting and part of me regrets reading it because some things you would rather not know Anyone who wants to defund the police or even thinks of defunding the police should spend 1 week in their shoes One solid week seeing their world and experiencing the underbelly of society Probably won't change their mind because you can't fix stupid but at least they can see what goes on in real life before making poor choices and foolish decisions
