After college and active marine corps duty, the author began his journalism career as a reporter and popular humor columnist for a Michigan newspaper. At age twenty-four, he became the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in US history. Eleven years later, he followed his heart and became a street cop in one of America’s largest cities. The stories here, true, firsthand accounts drawn from his life behind the badge, offer an uncensored glimpse into the hearts and minds of the thin blue line. If you seek the politically correct, look elsewhere. This book was written “under fire,” between shifts and on weekends while the author was still a working street cop. His experiences range from outrageously funny to deeply moving, but all are as they occurred. And all are wonderfully entertaining.
