When They Stand

I don’t write about the sex crimes part of my police job often though it’s considered my specialty. These cases cause me sleepless nights, tears and heartache. I’m not the victim but as a society we are all victimized by such atrocities.  ...more
@Lucy's Reality That's really a great way to put it and I  wholeheartedly agree!  more

My CSI Rant

I've known for years that a cop’s life is never easy or glamorous. If it was, all our cases would be solved in one hour and I would arrive at a crime scene with a low cut top, pink Jimmy Choo pumps to match my handcuffs, and long sexy hair streaming down my back. I don’t actually watch these shows but I've seen the commercials. ...more

Meth For Christmas

To keep things light, I don’t write about my serious homicide and sex crimes cases where I tend to shine. Instead, you get to hear about my missteps.

The Police Perspective

This is the 17th installment in the Bad Luck Cadet Series. It’s best to start at the beginning "Accidents Happen" to enjoy my adventures at the police academy after my mid-life crisis.

I had muscles in my forearms, thighs and butt....more

No Jerking Off On My Range

This is the 16th installment in the Bad Luck Cadet Series. It’s best to start at the beginning to enjoy my adventures at the police academy after my mid-life crisis. It’s all about fun, laughter and pain. Well maybe pain, pain and pain! Returning to my dorm room on Sunday evening was depressing. All signs of Donna were gone. I went in search of moral support. Rocco hadn’t arrived yet. Cadet Rodriguez, known as P-Rod was looking a lot worse for wear. Philip Rodriguez is the cadet who ran my ten punishment hill runs with me and it was hard to be down when around him....more

Some Days Are Special
