I found this years ago. I have no idea who wrote this up, but I have to say, it does explain many things about our friends. I also noticed that there are somethings that you can say around your cop friends who think your statement or comment are funny, but the non cop friends or family will wonder if your are suffering from some post traumatic stress and they will suggest that you should seek help. I hope you can read and understand.
I hope you enjoy this.
