Ok I gotta ask.

Ever broke out a yo-yo either at a crime scene OR during an interrogation?

That’s cool! I feel that connecting with kids is important, too many tv shows and movies portray police as the bad guys. It hurts my soul to hear a little kid call police the crap they do.

I know I could never be a police officer, I’d get mad at some mouthy 19 20 year old yolo jeep wrangler driving my daddy is a lawyer brats and slap the snot out of him.

That and the fact that you know people shoot at you. The heck with that man… again I thank you for what you do!
