Naked suspect support group!

Love the first episode! Although it did bring up some traumatic memories of wrestling a naked man covered in OC spray. My eyes burned at the memory. Every cop I know has a naked suspect story and this has motivated me to start a support group to end the silent suffering we all go through. You’re both are a true inspiration.

Genuinely one of the worst things I’ve ever listened to

Like, ignoring the content, which is laughably goofy, untrue and embarrassing, it just sounds bad. Knowing that the hosts are ex-cops, it does provide good insight into why policing is so irreparably broken though.
