Nice guys finish last. That is, until they learn what I'm about to tell you.
A little background.
I am a full time police officer in a department where the daily population goes up to about 100,000 people.
In my career, I deal with more difficult situations in one month than most people will deal with in their lifetime. It isn't easy, and it isn't for everyone, but working as a policeman gives me unique learning opportunities that aren't available any other way. This lesson was hard learned, and I want to share the fruits of my labor with you.
