    A Cops Life....

    Ok... I stole this one from someone else too... but I thought it was worth the share...

    A man once asked me, besides the tickets and the donuts,

    Whats it like being a cop?



    As I forgave him for his ignorance, years and years of memories

    Spun round and round in my head



    And the only answer I could give him

    came out in a collage of single words

    That any cop would understand.



    Academy. Badge. Rookie. Patrol.

    Honor. Valor. Bravery.



    Drunks. Bar fights. Car chases. Foot chases.

    Felons. Perverts. Cop haters. Cop killers.



    Marijuana. Cocaine. Meth labs.

    Battered wives. Abused children.



    Murders. Suicides. Accidents. Fatalities.

    Mental patients. Dirty needles. Dirty trailers.



    Deep nights. Weekends. Overtime.

    Marriage. Kids. Divorce. Marriage.



    Promotions. Demotions. Politics.

    Good cops. Bad cops. Funerals.



    Gray hair. Wrinkles. Years.

    Blood. Sweat. Tears.



    Live it. Love it. Hate it.

    "A strong man stands up for himself. A stronger man stands up for others."
    Ben

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
    President Ronald Reagan

    Nice, I like it. At first I thought you were talking about the book entitled that, which is a pretty good read if anyone is interested.
