Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Blahginess!

Bad Boys. Bad Boys. And Girls

Well a week ago Friday I mentioned that I was going on a ride along with a police officer friend of mine. Well I had a ton of fun explore the dark underside of society on a typical weekend night. So here are a couple of video clips from the night:

Here we are responding to a call with lights and sirens. It amazes me how many people are completely oblivious to the shrieking siren and flashing lights.

Here we are backing up on a traffic violation. Turns out one of the occupants had some outstanding warrants.

I have a new appreciation and admiration for our public servants. Day in and day out, night in and night out these men and woman work to protect us from all kinds of craziness. Their job description is to be on the frontlines of societies most dangerous situations and minimize and/or remove the threat while doing all they can to protect property and lives. Whether fire, ambulance or police, they all serve us in ways that go unnoticed and unappreciated. I remember well after 9/11 how we went through a phase of revering and being thankful for them all.

Who else goes unrecognized for their service?

    Bus driver’s go unrecognized for their service! I mean, how else would thousands of kids get to and from school every day? And put up with 50 screaming kids at one time in a confined space? But I love my job! It would just be nice to get a thanks from the parents every once in a while 🙂
