The Officer Matt Pearce Story

It was one year ago today, March 15, 2016, when Officer Matt Pearce was shot multiple times while pursuing a robbery suspect.

LAPD Officer Versus Teenage Boy

There is no doubt in my mind that this officer was tired of kids walking in his lawn.

Arrested for Stealing His Own Car

This is a great example of how everyone can be right and wrong at the same time. Here is my opinion based on the video and information provided.

This Job Is Impossible…

Sometimes it is absolutely impossible to determine if an officer is racist or if he is responding based on experience and factors presented to him.

The Ricky Williams Incident

The problem with people is that neither side can relate to each other. People aren't informed as to why officers do what they do and they immediately begin to interpret the actions of officers from their civilian point of view.

Perspective On The Brutal Murder Of Sergeant Clayton

I do not condone police brutality, but officers are allowed to protect themselves until they can determine what is going on regarding a situation.

The Unarmed Woman…..

Many people take issue with male officers using force on women. There have been officers who took things too far, but majority of the incidents that people complain about are justified and this situation proves why that is so.

The Michael Slager Incident

White America will never understand what it means to be black in this country.

The Routine Traffic Stop

I wish I could talk to Roddy and give him more examples of why officers do the things that they do. I wish more citizens would sign up for ride-a-longs with their local departments.

All officers receive these types of calls pretty regularly. Most of the time, the officer doesn’t locate the person.
