Example text

If an officer violates someone’s civil liberties during the investigation of a crime or the arrest and detainment of that individual, the information and evidence gathered during the investigation, including a confession, as well as the arrest itself, may be thrown out. As an officer of the law, it will be part of your sworn duty to uphold the Constitution. Further, in order to make good arrests and gather evidence that can be used to convict criminals, you should know and understand what these civil rights are.

In interviews with convicted serial killers and rapists, I had to come across as confident. I had done my homework and knew I would be in no danger, since I was coming face-to-face with these guys in a well-guarded prison scenario. Confidence is naturally enhanced by preparation and a sense of security. But these were men who would make anyone nervous. It was just important not to show it. Remember, predators are experts at spotting weakness. It’s how they choose their victims. If I had not been noticeably confident, the violent criminals I interviewed would have tagged me as weak.

Whenever he has to merge into traffic, he curses and brakes and slows to a near stop before there is finally what he believes to be enough room for him to get into the lane. Meanwhile, cars are lined up behind him waiting for their chance. Forget parallel parking. But he would never admit he’s a bad driver. The problem is always the other drivers: They’re overly aggressive, or they’ve parked too close together to allow room for his car.
