"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.

I work as a police officer on a University campus, and we have 2 hospitals here. A couple of months ago, and co-worker was in this same situation, were he attempted to pull over a speeding vehicle. I jumped in behind him to give location & direction of travel for the pursuit. After 3 blocks, the driver jumped out of the vehicle, in scrubs, and ran into the employee entrance. I ran after her, and noticed the initiating officer was not chasing her on foot. He said that she must be a doctor on her way to surgery. I was a little irritated that the Dr. did not even consider calling our PD and informing them that she would be arrving in the area at an accelerated speed, or the nature of her call, ESPECIALLY when she sees 2 police cars behind her with lights & sirens on.
I guess its a good thing I didnt tackle her, I was pretty close. I probably wouldve gotten an ass chewing over it, but I think I could've articulated why I did what I did, if it would've come to that.
