I once purchased some parts for my AR-15 down in Texas, the guy didn't want to sell them to me cause he though I was a gang banger, when I handed him my creds he almost pooped his pants. He said he had no idea that I was in LE.Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

I won't even wear my uniform to/from work. No one knows except my friends and family. When people eventually do find out they are shocked.
We actually had a plain clothes exercise over the course of three days for counter survelliance against hired actors. I was the only member of the 30 student class that wasn't made.
I have a friend who looks like a cop, acts like a cop, and flaunts it constantly. You can spot him a mile away. I actually have no idea what his interest are outside of law enforcement.
Me it's my job... a job that I enjoy but when i'm off-duty I can seperate very well and turn off. That's not to say that I become a sheep, but I an hang out with my non-cop friends and talk about things other than the job.No life 'til leather gunna kick some ass tonight.

I wear a confederate soldiers cap, a sawed off double barrel with a tie down rig, cowboy boots. a bandalero across my shoulder to carry my extra rounds............. whoa wait a minute, that was a western that I watched as a kid starring Nick Adams. We are a rural Central Illinois community, very few people in the county don't know who I am, so I'm always being recognized and asked questions. Most know where I live and what I drive, know my kids and grandkids. That happens when you've been on for 29 years. I like to wear jeans, a pullover, tennis shoes, and a ball cap, just be comfortable. I have some t's that say something about LE, some that talk about my grandkids, why I even have one that says silence is golden, duct tape is silver. If people approach me I talk to them, if they don't I go about my business.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
