The murder-mobile

Back again from the work trip. It was a good (set of) meetings. In fact the best joint staff meeting we've ever had! Contingents from west and east coast and we mid-rangers got along just fine and accomplished a lot of work. It was exhausting though, and part of it was the pre-stress of not knowing how well it would turn out!

When we were driving in the van, there was an RV ahead of us spewing red liquid from a tube. The liquid splattered all over the road, all over our windshield. We were tired by then and imaginations roaming. First we thought maybe it was a murder-mobile owned by a serial killer. But then we thought it was an unmarked bloodmobile (sort of like an unmarked squad) stealing around through the civilians, looking for a chance to get blood. But probably it was just an RV spewing waste on the road and on our windshield. How boring is that?

I came home to excellent chili made by Mom, quickly had some and then had to go to the Citizens' Police Academy for four hours to hear about the use of force. It was worth dragging my tired self there! But I'm not up to getting into it right now. Have a great Friday and weekend!

Glad you had a good trip.

It's amazing how the most innocent and boring things can spark the imagination!

Looking forward to hearing about police academy!

Even ex-police officers like myself got tired of the endless state mandated updates on use of force.
Force continuum...blah blah...(please wake me if the Chief comes in)
I have been reading your citizens academy reports and I enjoying the perspective of the citizen looking at the police in a new and appreciative way. Thanks for that.

Did they teach you how to use force, or just under what circumstances?
