Thread: My Son

  1. #1

    Default My Son

    My son is a cop in South Australia and has not long got out of the police Academy there.
    He had to do his first death notice to the persons mother.
    He said it was really hard to do and not even the training at the academy really gets you ready for the real thing.
    It has to come down to this, someone has to do it and it happened to be him and his partner's turn to do it.
    I spos this would be the bigger down side of the job.
    But we are so proud of him knowing he is up for it.

    Yeah, I couldn't think of anything worse to do, and it would be really hard to try and emotionally detach yourself as well.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    So true as he just told us about it and you could hear it in his voice that he did shake him. And we are proud of him, and he know what he was in for when he joined so it wasn't as bad as if it was one of us.
    At least he has had some training on how to do it the right way.

    just let him know that no matter how hard things get and how much crap he gets on the job there are people who appreciate and respect him for that

    That is a tough job. Yes he is appreciated.

    I think the worst part of the job would be scraping a broken child off the road or similar.

    But they do specialise. One of my dog walking friends is the guy who sets up the speed cameras and tests them. I've actually been on the receiving end of one of his, when I forgot where the 60 zone ended going out of a country town. Oops. Got the next town right - there was another camera there. They often do that.

    A lot of people hate cops and i had a real reason while younger.
    I was getting a speeding fine close to every week. But I never saw it as my fault, but blamed them. But as a young fella I think a lot of us felt this way.
    But one thing I always had was a good respect for them. And I blame a lot of this to me and only me. My parents had not to much to do with me as I was the youngest so I was just let loose.
    Now I have a son as a cop and he is doing a job that not too many would really like. He went in there with his eyes open and knew what he was in for.
    And he has just the right ammount of aragance that a cop needs. So he will do well in his new profession.
    And thank you to everyone that has voice their comments to.

    I've had a love, hate relationship over the years too.
    Now i'm older i know it was my fault 99% of the time but i have also met some real assholes with huge chips on thier shoulders.
    It is a job i couldnt do. I'd end up in the slammer myself for giving the little smart asses what for. My mate became a copper 2 years ago and we give him a real hard time about it, like handing out beers to everyone else but him and closing doors right in front of him, all in good fun and he see's the funny side of it. He told me the other day about booking a motorcycle rider for hooning and had flashbacks that this guy was himself when we where younger. Greg was worse than me as a kid and now he's a copper. Its funny how things change and where life takes you.
    Anyway , no matter what, life is safer for having police around and they do a hard job. I actually wish there was alot more of them.
    I bet your proud of your lad. He's done well.
