Things policemen know that you either do not or underestimate

Courtesy of Ghost of a Flea, I came across this today: a policeman’s account of what he learned about the human species.


One of the things my upbringing did not prepare me for was the complete lack of civility that some people have. I didn’t think of myself as having been sheltered from evil as a child, but I did not learn that some people have absolutely no regard for the welfare of anyone but themselves, and lash out at anyone who tries to make them aware they are not the only people on the planet.

Raise your children well, people.
