At jail, after dropping off my second pinch of the night,
I told deputies that since my vacation ended a week ago,
I was a glass half full kind of guy.
One of female deputies said,
"Too bad that glass is half full of shit."

1.Last night, during a fight, an officer's bumped his mike, he transmitted, "If resist, I'm going to kick you in the face."The suspect fought three officers despite the warning.
After each call, the primary officer has to fill out a screen survey to describe
the mental state of the subjects in the call. Even if there are no subjects
in a call, like a false alarm call or a traffic hazard, the mask must be filled out.
Per our union survey,
96% of officers rate the morale at the department as poor or below average.
97% of officers agree the low staffing levels are negatively impacting morale.
80% of officers would not recommend employment with the department to a friend or colleague.
One officer summed up morale by saying working
at the department "is like playing for a losing team."
The brass has sent out a survey to officers asking for suggestions
on how to hire new officers, retain current officers, and improve moral.
6. On the white board, at roll call, the survey monkey asked
'if the leadership at the precinct provides fatty, sugary snacks?'
Then, the LT. brought in Pink Box donuts.

to see the rats eat the dead guy's puke,
then seeing the dead guy."

Marquee is retiring after tonight.
He is part of the may exodus.
His last DUII blew a .15
despite the claim she only
had "two beers."
"If they bounce, pounce."

during an HGN test.
