Since 2002, I have spent a bulk of my time away from my wife and children sitting in huddled conversations with accused rapists, child molesters, and murderers. I’ve conducted thousands of interviews with victims, witnesses, and suspects alike, and the one thing that remained constant with all those people is that everybody lies.
Waiving Miranda is my attempt to tell the truth. To convey the reality of my life in law enforcement. The posts you read will be complete and/or loosely-based truths about my experience in law enforcement. They will feature real people in real situations, some of which may be uncomfortable to read. There will be times that you may disagree with what I write, and that’s okay. As a fellow detective once told me, “If I wanted to be liked, I would have become a firefighter.”
I welcome any and all comments you have, and if you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask. I’ll give you the most honest answer I can or tell you why I can’t.
Welcome, citizen, to my version of the real world.
