March 7, 2011 – Norm!

Knowledge from experience.

This is a book written by Norm Stamper, the former chief of police in Seattle.

It details the life of a cop (at least one cop) in detail — and I found it a fascinating read…I had never taken the time to understand what it really means to sign up for that.

I bought Norm’s book after meeting him personally — and I probably wouldn’t have bought the book any other way…and I’m glad I did.

Norm’s opinions about drugs – that they should be de-criminalized (as opposed to ‘legalized,’ think Amsterdam)  are a testament to the knowledge obtained by those who are on the front lines, and who’ve really seen something.

I cast this upon the RID pile in hopes it opens the mind of the next person who gets it.
