Re: “One Writer's Experience With the Elite Eight Police Action

You don't realize how much of a joke this city is until you venture outside of it for a bit.
There is a very specific breed of boredom that afflicts the TPD, this boredom blurs all lines of legal and illegal.
A crime that would typically require 1 squad car, suddenly requires 5 squad cars and a K-9 unit.
Something that would normally get you a slap on the wrist and a fine, suddenly turns into being aggressively forced into a county cell with very vague reasoning.
Some drunk college kids causing a commotion downtown (per usual), suddenly needs the force of a "newly trained" swat force.
I toured the country with musical acts, sometimes things got really ugly. But I was always impressed how officers in these places presented themselves as keepers of the peace, not soldiers creating their own version of peace.
