I have my teeth as souvenirs!
I keep them in a jar in my bed room.
The suspect got nearly 8 years in prison: What a price to pay for one night out getting drunk and stupid.
When I was a rookie, the vets of the night crew set up an initiation, which was planned as a joke, but, as a rookie, he, he, I took it a bit too far: at about 2AM, I get a call that there was a man laying down near the rail road tracks, thought to be a transient. When I arrived I saw blood all over the ground, blood soaked shirt, and a knife in the chest. I called the ambulance, and rushed over to see if the person was still breathing.......and to my surprise, it was a manikin, and the blood was actually ketchup. LOL.....
I never heard the end of it for weeks. They even stuffed a miniature manikin in my personal locker....lol.
Keep up the good work, Jen.......Power it up baby!
