Law in This Society is Pretty Important To Me
At that moment, I was 22 years old, married with one child. I was attending a college majoring in Law Enforcement in a society far away from home. Even though I had a bulk of my school paid for under the GI bill, I still had to find employment to feed and clothe my family. I applied for several jobs. However, on a Monday AM, I received a phone call from a small town city Police Department.
They asked if I would come in for an interview for the position of Police Officer? Of course I went and for God knows what reason… I haven’t even finished my Law Enforcement school… Besides that, I was hired on the spot. I had no previous experience in police work; other then the little time I have been in college so far.
I went home and advised my wife of my new Law position, without finishing college
However, it paid a grand total of $4.29 per hour, with a mandatory 6 day work week all paid at straight time. My big problem that makes me start thinking is that I may be having health problems; I knew the reason would be because I drink pop so much. With that said, I needed to definitely change my diet. My wife was undecided, as to jump for joy or try and talk me out of it. Nevertheless, she eventually gave me her blessing.. and I was off to work the following Monday morning.
Be that as it may, I had expected to start with some sort of Law Enforcement training classes. Or maybe attending a few police training seminars for a few weeks. However, that was not the case. Under any circumstances, I was told to ride with a fellow who had been working there for about eight months. I had to pay attention to what he did. We patrolled the city streets, making sure nobody was breaking the Law. Another thing was that we answered a few boring calls and stopped a few cars for speeding. All in all, it was a fairly easy job for being involved in the Law.
Later, I was told that there would be official classes of Extreme Law Enforcement training after my first year was up. This sounded a little late in coming. I was a police officer, able to make arrests, write tickets and the whole nine yards but had no type of Extreme Law Enforcement training to go by other then common sense. With that said, I had been involved in robberies, thefts, stolen autos and every other crime a city experiences. I paid attention to other cops on the beat and learned from them.
What I liked most about being a part of the Law Enforcement
It is a fact that the part I enjoyed most was helping citizens that needed help; or even a friend to lean on. I would be willing to bet I drove more DUIs home then I arrested. I was a guy that understood peoples problems. If there was any way to solve them I did. I found this much better then adding more weight to their already heavy burden. One night I received a call to a local pub called “The Back Street Lounge”, a fight was in progress. I arrived and everyone pointed to the back door, yelling, “He went that way”.
Anyhow, I stepped into a very dark, dirty alley and listened for some type of sound which would give me an idea of where the culprit was. I stood there for about two minutes when I heard a snapping type sound. It was not coming from my left or right, but from above? As I started to look up, the full body weight of a 230-pound drunk along with a sizable oak limb crashed down upon my head. We both went to the ground and rolled around for what seemed like an hour but in actual time was about one minute.
I got him to his feet and he was so inebriated I had to let him sit back down. Another ten minutes had passed. Then we walked through the alley and onto the side street directly across from the city jail. After booking him on public intoxication charges, I placed him in the drunk tank to sleep it off. The next day I was reprimanded for not calling for back up. Also, not charging him with fleeing a police officer, and assault upon a police officer. Even though they are against the Law.
When he appeared in front of the city judge
He was fined $25.00 and told to behave himself. Apart from serving my country as a cope have been spreading awareness about the dangers of breast cancer.
I like to take this opportunity to bring awareness to you and your family diagnosed with breast cancer. While it is more obvious in women; men also encountered this illness. In the United States, it is the most common cancer in women next to skin cancer. Nearly 40,000 women died from the disease each year. Over 200,000 new cases are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. Thanks to new studies, improved treatment, & early diagnosis; 2.5 million women today are cancer survivors in the U.S.
Learn about the disease and pick up as much information as you can find about the disease will help one to deal with the concerns of developing breast cancer, or knowing someone who has been diagnosed with the disease. Below are some risk factors involved;
- Older age.
- Menstruating at an early age.
- Older age at first birth or even never having given birth.
- A personal history of breast cancer or benign (non-cancer) breast disease.
- A mother or sister with breast cancer.
- Treatment with radiation therapy to the breast/chest.
- Breast tissue that is dense on a mammogram.
- Taking hormones such as estrogen and progesterone.
- Drinking alcoholic beverages.
- Chemicals in cosmetics, foods, products in household, environment, & health care
