    Medically Retired- Did it

    for over 8 years in the Colorado Springs / Denver areas. I miss it so much. I was the true 'nice cop' - as I could relate to so many people and have true apathy. I have been through so much growing up and was even a sponsored skateboarder at one point. I miss helping people.

    I'm not a police officer

    but I swear to god, if I have to make one more citizens arrest, that I'm going to march down to the police station and demand that they put me on the payroll. (Not really, if I can help I will, it's just a bit annoying how much this has happened lately

    I suppose I should start with this experience

    first, as it relates to both my professional and personal life. I worked as a correctional officer first for two and a half years at the local jail in the city I moved to. Eventually became a field training officer there. Honestly not a bad job as long you applied the firm...

    Sometimes the profession can be pretty rough.

    I always tell most everyone I deal with in a heated/confrontational situation that I never take this job personally, as far as how I treat people. As per 'Road House', you're always nice up until it's time not to be nice. Nor am I there to take anyone's abuse, physical or verbal...

    So, you would think that seeing two patrol cars

    parked outside of the business you're thinking of shoplifting from cause you to perhaps re-think or second-guess your decision to steal... Apparently not. Sometimes I can only just shake my head.
