MuayThai206 ,

Thank you!

Thank you guys for the awesome podcasts, it really helps me to understand to understand police vs civilian thought process. Is there any episodes coming up about the psych exams, how to prepare for it?

Learned a lot but one issue

I am a student at the Washington state law enforcement academy. I have found this podcast to be very beneficial while attending said academy.

I have had one issue though, in the guardian vs warrior podcast they actually bring up my academy and the philosophy of the guardian and completely trash it, which is fine because those are opinions. The problem is everything stated was factually false. I’d love to help set the story straight on what is actually meant by the guardian mindset and what Sue Rahr actually teaches there, because it is not AT ALL what was presented on the podcast.

That kid from sac ,

Keep killing it gentleman.

I think you guys have a really awesome opportunity to Bridge the divide between civilian and LEO. Ignorance is huge factor of hatred and talking about the mindset of different LEO’s really help the people see when a cop is really a jerk or just having a bad day.
