Officers of the law have tons of terrifying experiences
We get a call that a woman’s homeless, schizophrenic son is at her house uninvited while she is at work. We make contact with him, sit him on the curb, and he mentions voices in his head. We ask what the voices say; he looks down the street at his mother and with a completely serious, blank stare says, “Oh they’re just telling me to kill my mom.” (BRP1099)
All the Way to the White House
I stopped a 25-year-old Asian male from entering the east executive entrance of the White House. He had slit his wrists and neck prior to his arrival, but not deep enough to hit major blood vessels. He told me that he was a secret agent working for J. Edgar Hoover and that he was 60 years old. He said he had important information to pass to president Obama.
I ended up having to detain him, stop the bleeding and then involuntarily commit him. Turned out to be a local college kid, going through some mental health issues. (ctmacdon84)
Responded to a call while in field training of people exhuming bodies and doing freaky religious crap with them. I have no clue what religion or what they were trying to do, but we got there before any body was actually disturbed.
The chanting and outfits disturbed me more than any suicide or vehicle accident ever has. I wanted to arrest but my field training officer just told them to leave. He said if you arrest them, they get the arrest report and then they know your name. You don’t want those people to know your name. (Caleb33)
