A cornucopia of comments today, all from a recent law enforcement class.
“That was the best time at PTI (Police Training Institute) – watching them get lit up.”
“Yeah, baby, take the ride.”
– from two 22 year-olds who were talking about watching police recruits get Tasered.
“My wife and my ex-wife get along pretty well. And they both get along with my daughter’s mother.”
– from a 23 year-old. He later commented about how the ‘bad guys’ have no self-control.
“…shit flows like wildfire.”
– from the instructor. I just liked the ultra mixed metaphor.
“I’ve [written] 40 DUIs.”
“Bite my ass, that’s crap.”
– the first comment was from a kid who’d been out of the academy since last May and out of his field training program since the beginning of September. The second comment was my response to him asking the class to believe that in four months he’d arrested 40 people for DUI. The snort was from the instructor, who I’m not sure believed a single word the kid said during the entire four day class.
