    Dealing with a riot isn’t something the average law enforcement officer does very frequently during a career, if at all. Given current events, I thought this was a good time to talk about a small riot I was involved in, with a little commentary.

    An unruly guy and 2 cops are in a bar . . . maybe you’ve heard this one before. But this guy made the call memorable with an unusual allegation, which in turn created a bit of an urban myth at the police department.

A great addition to an over full field

The host, a retired police officer, draws on episodes from his career for his subjects. He is a natural story teller and an excellent teacher. His stories are engaging, organized, with well drawn characters and understandable plots. He explains police procedures and policies clearly without cluttering up the action unecessarily. And he can be very funny. You'd want to sit around and have coffee or a beer with this guy and pump him for stories all day long. Very much recommended.
