The Captain came into briefing. He asked me where our Sergeant was...
Man, it was good to get even.
Then he said he saw him going to court in his uniform, so he suspected he would be down to work. He wasn't working today. Then...the Captain got rowdy as his rowdy goes...
ME: He's in a uniform because he doesn't have a suit. And probably can't afford one.
CAPTAIN: Suits are for pussies. People that wear the uniform...they believe. [touches himself on the badge, looks to the heavens] It's all about pride. [smirks]
ME: Pffst. That's a bunch of horseshit and you know it! I've been here long enough. Don't try that bullshit on me. Go find some rookies.
CAPTAIN: 96, what the hell are you here for if you don't believe?
ME: I'm here for the people, Captain!
TROOPS: [laughs, jeers]
CAPTAIN: That's damn funny.
We joke about it. We make fun...because we are jaded cops. Most of us really do have pride and really do believe, and are here for the people. I just want World Peace. Is that too much to ask?
