When The Lord Was Creating Police Officers
WHEN THE LORD WAS CREATING POLICE OFFICERS
Body: When the Lord was creating police officers, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "You've done a lot of fiddling around on that one."And the Lord said, "Have you read the specs on this order?
A peace officer has to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scalewalls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn't touch and not wrinkle his uniform.""He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses and testify in court the next day."
"He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on blackcoffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands." The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of hands... noway." "It's not the hands that are causing me problems," said the Lord. "It's the three pairs of eyes an officer has to have." "That's on the standard model?' asked the angel. The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through a bulge in a pocket before he asks May I see what's in there, sir?' when he already knows what it is and wishes he had taken an accounting job. Another pair here in the side of his head for his partner's safety. And another pair of eyes in the front that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say, You'll be all right, ma'am', when he knows it isn't so."
"Lord," said the angel, touching His sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow." "I can't," said the Lord. "I already have a model that can talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident and feed a family of five on a civil service paycheck."The angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly. "Can it think?", she asked."You bet," said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred crimes; recite Miranda warnings in its sleep; detain, investigate, search and arrest a gang member in less time than it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop... and still it keeps its sense of humor.
This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in Hell, coax a confession from a child abuser, comfort a murder victim's family and then read in the daily newspaper how law enforcement isn't sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of thepeace officer. "There's a leak", she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model." "That's not a leak," said the Lord. "It's a tear." "What's the tear for?", asked the angel."It's for bottled-up emotions, for fallen comrades, for commitment to that funny piece of cloth called the American flag, for justice." "You're a genius," said the angel. The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put the tear there.", He said.Don't you just hate it when someone's balls are hidden so well, they can't seem to find it themselves ~ RSA

Seen this a few times, it always gets me though.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.
