Wanted to introduce everyone to Call for Backup, an extremely interesting blog written by a police officer and his wife. Excellent point-of-view from the other side of the "thin blue line". To get you started, don't miss Cuffing Ducks:
When you’re a Cop wife, you get to know the Officers. One of them got in an accident on Charlie’s day off, so both of us raced to the hospital ... the injured Officer is taped to a board to hold his neck and back steady. He can’t move even to get his ID out for the nurse. “Damn ducks,” he says.The disposition of a wayward Subway sandwich was worth the price of admission alone.
“What?” He looks like he’s got whiplash, but he sounds like he’s hallucinating.
“Those damn ducks. A woman was stopped in a forty mile an hour zone. A forth mile an hour zone on a blind hill. She’s stopped because there are ducks in the road. They’re just in the road, taking a break. I barely stopped in time. Obviously, not everyone did.“
