“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

Plan view

Today's entry is a bit late, since my last call of the night showed up right at the end of the shift and kept us late...

One of the hardest things to teach new officers is to look around at the little stuff on calls - getting past just the weapons, people and all that, but seeing the stuff people leave lying right in plain sight.

This was a perfect example - a simple domestic incident, which could have been 5 minutes in and out. Instead, having seen the obvious crack pipe & tools sitting on the kitchen table, we end up doing a search warrant on the whole place. Two people with drug charges later, CPS called because they're using and selling right around the poor six month old kid, and some good info for our narcotics guys.

All from a little bit of extra work and time.
