    Freedom yes, but experiences are better. They are the seasoning that makes one appreciate the freedom won by artfully prevailing in those times. When one can say with a defiant confidence that unmakes other men, "Yes, we were there...we did those things". And most often in those quiet moments by the fire, when something remind us of the times on the edge, and we smile that ever silent smile that some will never wear.

Politically aspiring Chiefs and Sheriffs do not want safe streets or the suppression of criminal gangs - they say they do but it is bullshit - what they want deep down is achieve their own aspirations, and the thing that will give them that is the illusion of those things.

    The suppression of criminal gangs is not done with enforcement, it is done with fear. The true and tangible attainment of safe streets and the suppression of criminal gangs, takes semi-outlaw tribes within the agency...the police equivalent of the old Mac-V-Sog...that will accomplish the mission at hand. When I was in the Gang Unit, drive by shootings decreased by 90% because they knew that evil men in raid jackets would chase them down and shotgun them to death while their cars were still rolling without so much as a "freeze police".

    We were arrogant, and walked with a swagger, but damn if we weren't good at what we did. But what those units have the potential to become frightens the brass more than anything.
    This sounds a lot like the dynamics at play in "Den of Thieves." Sounds like a thrilling ride, if you've got the 'nads for it.

    Some of us had the DMH on our pistolas. The scrimshaw is a little worn on the bone grips.

    You'll probably like that movie. At one point the main (was going to say protagonist, but WHO the protagonist/antagonist is depends on the viewers point of view) is literally introduced as the 'original gangster cop' in a backhanded sort of way by a fed.

    Its actually a really good movie.

    Saw it...yeah...never ran across a group like those bad guys...but that and Training Day fairly encapsulates the LE world of the 1990s.
