I was a good kid as a teen. I did not take drugs, drink or cause much trouble. I was an athlete and hung out with other teammates. But there were times that the cops showed up. At that time, I thought that only criminals should be afraid or the police. I now think differently.
Being a police officer if a difficult job. A great deal of stress comes with the job. Like all of us, cops have bad days. Police officers are at greater risk of divorce and alcohol abuse then the average person because they live with a higher level of dailey stress. More people are carrying firearm or other weapons, so it is difficult to be a nice guy as a cop.
I don’t worry much anymore about dealing with abusive law enforcement officers, because I have a magic tool. I carry a tag on my key chain that has a number to an attorney. These lawyers man that number 24/7, so if I am detained, questioned, arrested, or served with a warrant, I can speak to a live attorney. As long as I have not been drinking or under the influence of drugs, my attorney will also speak to the officer at that time.
I wish I had this service a few years ago, when a racist cop falsified information to obtain an arrest warrant for a black employee of mine. We were working 300 miles from home and did not know many people in the town. I lied to the officer and was arrested along with my worker. I was released within hours, but my employee was detained for over two weeks. He was later released in the middle of the night over 350 miles from home and he did not have my phone number. It some how disappeared from his belongings during his stay with the county. It took him over a month to get home.
I will never be without my keychain tag again. It is well worth it to know my family and I are safe. I also make sure that each of my children also carry one of these cards, so if they are stopped, they can call an attorney to get important advise.
