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.
