"I was sitting at a stop sign in front of a school when a lady sped through said stop sign doing 50 in a 15. I pulled her over and gave my usual line, 'Is there perhaps a medical or other legally justifiable reason you ran that stop sign in front of a school doing 50 miles per hour?'

She said, 'I'm having a miscarriage.'

No, she wasn't but going along with her story, I told her that she was in luck and that I was a trained medic, and would get an ambulance. As the ambulance was en route, the dispatcher told me the ambulance crew wanted to know if she was bleeding.


She heard this on my radio, and I told my dispatcher to 'standby.' It was hot, and we were in Texas. She was wearing very short-shorts, so I stuck my head all the way in her car, looked down at her crotch, then back at her and said, 'I guess not, huh?'

The look on her face was priceless.

She was so upset. She got the ticket for speeding and the stop sign, and the ambulance bill, so it was about $1,500 in total.

My mom wanted to make sure I sent this too...
He was a seeker of knowledge and studied every subject he could imagine and get his hands on. He was logical in every situation and saw details that most would miss.  There were many officers who were his very close friends, including Will Battaglia, Gordon Fujino (the late), Loe Balesteri, Ron Belleci, and many others I wish I could remember and list. My mother was, and still is in heart, a true and devoted Police Officer’s wife. She supported all that he had to endure and respected the responsibilities that he was sworn to, to serve and protect.  We would not trade a day of his job for anything else. It was in his blood and ours.

Thank you again!, Shannon

Thanks for keeping Bill's memory alive and your efforts to continue The Farsider.

Your appeal to send in contributions brought to mind an e-mail conversation I had with Bill two or three year ago.  In that conversation, I brought up the thought of people sending in past work stories, which would be lost forever when a few and all pass.  Bill mentioned that he had tried to get those type of contributions, but related a lack of participation and his efforts went by the wayside.

What about trying it again?  Maybe using one line teasers that might get someone to fill in the story, even anonymously?  We all have our own stories because it was not an uneventful career.

If you believe it might be worth a try, please put it out there.  It would be a living tribute to those that have passed.

A few teasers:

- Eggs on Capitol Expressway.

- Chickens in City Hall

- Super Chicken banner.

- Black socks being sold.

- Deer hunting.

- Flat tires at Frontier Village

- Call me an ambulance.

Stories that showed the humor which was necessary to ease the stress. All of us share the results of that stress which lead to heart disease, cancer, addiction and death.

Thanks.  I got on my soapbox again remembering others.

(MIGHT WE REFER TO THIS AS A ……… POLICE LINE?

I WAS A POLICE OFFICER

Today, I will not answer the radio call that your boyfriend has come home drunk and is beating you again.

Today I will not answer the radio call that your 16 year old daughter, who is very responsible, is four hours late coming home from school.

Today I will not answer the radio call that your store has been robbed or your house has been burglarized.

Today I will not stop a drunk driver from killing someone. I will not catch a rapist or a murderer or a car thief.

Today I will not answer the radio call that a man has a gun or tried to abduct a child or that someone has been stabbed or has been in a terrible accident.

Today I will not save your child that you locked in a car or the child you were to busy to watch who went outside and fell into the swimming pool, but that I revived. No, today I will not do that.

Why?

Because -

Today I was killed by a drunk driver while I was helping push a disabled car off the highway.

Today I was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop to simply tell someone that they had a taillight out.

Today I was killed in a traffic accident rushing to help a citizen.

Today I was shot and killed serving a warrant on a known drug dealer.

Today I was killed by a man when I came by to do a welfare check because his family was too busy.

Today I was killed trying to stop a bank robbery or a grocery store robbery.

Today I was killed doing my job.

Only someone crying themselves to sleep tonight will be the only sign that I was cared about.

Or

Today, I was suspended from duty for doing my job, because the liberal media, a community organizer, a lawyer who formally represented terrorists and is the US attorney general and a mayor who ran on an anti-police agenda, who are all advised by a drug dealer, a liar and income tax cheat have vilified my profession.

There will be no cries for justice.

There will be no riots in the streets.

There will be no officers marching, screaming -"No justice, No peace!".

No citizens will scream that something must be done.

No windows will be smashed, no cars burned, no stones thrown, no names called.

A chaplain and an officer will go to a house and tell a mom and dad or a wife or husband or a child that their son or daughter or husband or wife or father or mother won't be coming home today. The flags at many police stations were flown at half-mast today, but most people won't know why.

There will be a funeral and my fellow officers will come, a twenty-one-gun salute will be given, and taps will be played as I am laid to rest. My name will be put on a plaque, on a wall, in a building, in a city somewhere. A folded flag will be placed on a mantel or a bookcase in a home somewhere and a family will mourn.

I was a police officer............
