It was in my youth. You know, before I grew up.
3 years in Thornton;
I quit because I had gotten back into rafting (a story for another day) and was running commercial on weekends. My supervisor took exception cause, you know, I was associating with a bunch of long haired dope smoking hippies (true, but irrelevant to my cop job) and he was pushing me to make a choice. Then I busted a city officials kid for burglary, the city official put pressure on the chief, who put pressure on my supervisor, who told me to tell the chief to stick it up his ass, but please keep him (the supervisor) out of it.
I decided fuck it, I loved the work but not the politics, and told the supervisor he could stick it up his ass.
Ran full time commercial till I met my wife and she gently pointed out that there were no retired river guides collecting a pension, and maybe I should think about that.
