I would very much like to meet a German girl
I worked 2nd shift today (2-10), which usually has the highest volume of calls out of all three shifts. Overall, it was still a bit slow, but interesting anyway. Started off at the courthouse spending time at the State’s Attorney’s office with an officer investigating a few fraud cases, then came back and helped clear out one of the garage bays at the station. The Chief, State’s Attorney, Assistant State’s Attorney, and a detective were examining a car used in an attempted murder case (driver repeatedly attempted to hit and kill a pedestrian). The detective opened a shed out back for us to put some of the older evidence in and there was a big biohazard bag on the floor. I ask what’s in it and he says “You remember how when that plane crashed last year, one of the people jumped out but their parachute didn’t open?”
“That’s what’s left of him”
Apparently it was a bunch of body parts wrapped in a blood stained parachute. Kinda odd. The rest of the day was mostly traffic stops, and a call to a possible domestic at a trailer park. Then we get a call for a 10-50 (car accident) in town, where someone has managed to hit a deer. Me and the officer are looking at each other like, what the fuck, how do you hit a deer in town, when another officer keys in and goes “…do you have a direction of travel on that deer?”
So we get dispatched to go find this injured deer, prompting the officer to yell “Let’s find this deer and shoot it! I don’t drive through the woods don’t run through my city!” (Joking of course). Then somebody from the ambulance company brought us Pizza Hut. Good night.
First day of being an intern
And it was fantastically slow. For some reason, the deputy chief had me come in at 9am, which is two hours after the first shift starts, and I just rode around til 2. We had one traffic stop at the beginning, absolutely nothing for hours, and then one interesting moment right before the end.
Apparently a well-known crazy lady/crackhead was sunbathing naked on the side of the road, so I was taken to be introduced to this fine citizen. She had but on a bikini by the time we got there, but…that was interesting. Obvious mental issues plus the substance abuse. I’ve got to have something to write about to justify me interning there
Completely at peace with the world right now.
I’m on good terms with Emily again, enjoying the summer, starting my internship, have people to hang out with, and so much more. Life might be good for now.
