|Why Law Enforcement||I grew up wanting to help people. I volunteered in a crisis center before I began Law Enforcement. I saw little kids go through traumatic incidents there and listened to stories of victims of violent crimes. The next step of my mine to help people like this was to become a cop.|
|First Arrest||My first arrestt was of a guy who goes by the name of Diamond. Diamond was really drunk and was arguing with his neighbor. He picked up a metal pole about 10ft long and began swinging it at his neighbor. Diamond then chased his neighbor away from his home and down the street with the metal pole. When I spoke with diamond at his residence, there was stuff all over the place. I dont mean just messy, but it was a horrders house. Diamond didnt admit to his actions, but I had several witnesses who saw what he did. When I arrested diamond and transportation came to get him he played “dead” in my car. Even though diamond was still talking to me while he was laying down in my patrol car playing dead. Diamond started telling me to stop talking to him because hes dead.|
