Eternal Verities--Cop Version

LawDog always, always, always provides a delightful read. Here are a few selected Truths from yesterday's posting:

The speed at which you respond to a fight call is always the slowest legal speed. You want to arrive in time to arrest the winner and put the loser in an ambulance.

Placing your pistol back in a holster with your finger on the trigger will cause you to walk with a limp.

If you have cleared all the rooms and met no resistance -- Congratulations: you kicked in the door of the wrong house

When a citizen sees red-and-blue lights approaching at a high rate of speed, he will always pull into the lane the cop needs to use.

If you drive your patrol car to the geometric center of the Sahara Desert, within five minutes someone is going to pull along side you and ask for directions.

The better you do your job, the more likely you are to be shot, injured, complained on, sued, investigated, or sub-poena'd on your day off.

Any suspect with a rifle is a better shot than any cop with a pistol.
