I’d like a chance for this karma and thank you for your generosity. I’m almost to 13 years with a city agency. Like others I’ve seen how awful mankind can be but I’ve also had a great time and a lot of laughs with the great people I’ve worked with. I also like to think I’ve helped people and made a difference along the way.

One funny story that still makes me laugh is a call at a not so nice hotel. A friend and I were clearing a call there when a guy flagged us down in parking lot saying some guy was in his room eating his food. We found a drunk guy sitting at the edge of the bed eating a bag of Cheetos with his eyes glued to the tv. He thought he was in his room but clearly wasn’t. We ran his license and the dispatcher said “he’s clear,” meaning he didn’t have warrants. The guy jumped up ready to fight and yelled “I ain’t queer!!” In his best redneck voice. It took us a minute to calm him down from that one.

Please include me. Going on 24 years as a LEO, currently with the highway patrol. And as this is a karma, I’ll share one of my stories where I witnessed instant karma.

I was working Christmas Eve many years ago and observed a lady driving without her seat belt. I stopped her, with the intention of just giving her a verbal warning to make sure she got where she was going safely. As I approached the car I didn’t get to say one word as she started the conversation with, “I can’t f...ing believe you’re stopping me on Christmas Eve.” So I went ahead and ran a check on her. Came back with a felony warrant for her arrest issued...12/23. So she got to go to jail and her car went to car jail. If she had remained polite, I wouldn’t have even run her license.

Awesome Karma. Although I’m a new man on the block I have many (28 years) of law enforcement experience and Like others I have a number of stories.
Winters in the Twin Cities can be brutal. They are snowy and cold and often below zero. Squads were washed, more like de-salted at the end of shift and placed in a heated garage with the doors left open so the carpet mats etc. could dry out when not in use.
Early the next morning a field training officer and his new rookie checked the squad and it’s equipment then went into service.
Less then a block from the garage the rookie grabbed grabbed his inner thigh and began screaming to the FTO to stop. We all know rookies are to be seen and not heard unless asked a question.
The rookie was out of control having ripped his seatbelt off with his free hand and kept after the FTO to stop.
Once stopped the rookie jumped from the squad and on the shoulder of the road was able to remove two of the keepers for his duty belt with one hand while still holding his inner thigh with his right hand.
The FTO unhappy with his new rookie managed to get around to the passenger side of the squad as the rookie dropped his pants. A small amount of blood rang from beneath the rookies underwear.
Still holding his inner thigh the rookie used his left hand to remove a very dead, bloody, squeezed to death mouse.
What a way to start a career.

Please include me. I am a detective in a violent crimes unit with special training in computer forensics. I have been involved in too many child crimes lately so my stories are about things that should not exist in this wold.

Thank you so much, Q!!

I am so surprised and cannot tell you how happy I am to win this. I felt like a small kid again when I woke up and saw your email. This P228 will be given a good home and family.

Thank you, again Q, the forum and the great members here.

Congrats, Benner. I went back and read your story. I’m glad you found your sense of worth again and are healing.

I’m in my 5 year slump right now. Doesn’t sound nearly as rough as what you went through, but there Some days I wonder why I bother doing the job. Most days are good, but some days drag on and makes me wonder what I’m sacrificing and why.

Thank you.

I have been there. It’s like anything I guess, good days and bad. My advice is to keep going and taking it day by day. My dad always said, “ It’s always darkest before dawn.” (Not that you are in a super bad place). Life has a way of showing you why you’re doing what you’re doing; especially in this kind of work. There was a time when it was all I could to get up out of bed, get ready for work and drive in to the post. I am thankful that I made it past that but I also know that if I ever get that way again, I’m going to ask for help. My family deserves that from me. I have realized that I haven’t lived some of the best days of my life yet. Please feel free to reach out to if ever you need anything even just to vent.

Winning this karma certainly hasn’t hurt anything Wink . I’ve been smiling all day and all I can think about is getting more ammo because I can’t wait to take my kids out and shoot this beautiful piece of Sig art! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go find a short trigger....(what a great issue to have!)

The P228 arrived today and it’s absolutely beautiful! I couldn’t help myself so I took it straight out to the range and promptly fired four magazines worth through her. She performed perfectly as I suspected she would. Q sent it with a short trigger so there was nothing else to do but shoot it. I cannot wait to get more trigger time with her.

Thank you, again, Q, for your amazing generosity and for making me smile ear to ear. Big Grin
