I haven’t posted a blog in a while. I’ve been incredibly anti-social lately. That may be why.
My last blog, “Mile High Lie” about all the lies regarding the 5280 Magazine story was kind of a traumatic experience. The betrayal of that article and of the writer kind of did me in for a bit. The writer should be fired for making things up about me, but I doubt he will be. After all, he is part of the media. When they don’t have the facts, they make them up. Surely we all know that by now.
Lately I’ve been studying (hard) to enter into a new career field. It’s a field that could help me make a very nice yearly salary-certainly much more than a law enforcement job-but not one in which I’m excited about in the least.
When a person is not allowed to be who they are meant to be, that very act of cruelty by those who prevent that from happening can destroy a person. The jealousy and insecurity of man are incredible. And very unimpressive. Because men are so insecure and threatened by a strong woman, they create lies and false accusations about her so she is unable to compete-and gain “victory” over them. Unreal. Absolutely unreal.
I was born to protect people. I was designed for that very purpose. The more dangerous the situation, the more comfortable I am. Danger is my arena. It is my home. No, I do not want to jump out of an airplane. To me, that is senseless and a waste of time. I’m talking about danger that involves bullying; the injustice of man against man. I cannot stand injustice of any sort and therefore, I am perfect for defending those who encounter it in any way, shape or form.
God knows what happened in my life. He knows I am a person of great integrity and justice. Yet why he takes so long to vindicate me is beyond my comprehension. If I hadn’t felt the presence of God so strongly, protecting me from the gunman’s bullets the day of the shooting at the church, I don’t know that I’d actually believe there was a God. But because I felt that powerful presence without question, I know God is real. I just don’t know if he brings justice to women like he does for men.
Men do all the evil in the world, yet God clearly favors them. To me, that is beyond baffling. Women are kind, thoughtful, giving, compassionate, tough as nails, and understanding, yet we suffer so greatly at the hands of many men. How could this not confuse anyone who reads the bible?
I don’t want to be in this new career field I’m studying so hard for. I want to be in the career field I belong in, which is law enforcement. Shame on all the agencies who have denied me entry before even backgrounding me. Shame on you and know that I am so unimpressed that you won’t even give me a reason for rejecting me before I have even handed in a background packet.
I work out 2 hours a day/ 5 days per week. I work out because I always want to be ready if/when I encounter a dangerous situation. I’m also always armed because I am a well-trained police officer who is unafraid to take on a criminal who thinks he can bully his way into killing people or robbing them of their personal property. I dare anyone to ever try doing that with me. Either we both die or he will die, but I will not stand for anyone pushing me around or trying to take something from me-or anyone else-that is not rightfully theirs.
The Denver Police would be wise to hire me. I would be an excellent addition to their police department, or to any department for that matter. I am willing to sacrifice my life, if need be, to save the life of any other person-friend or foe-if they were in danger.
I will continue my studies in this field I have no desire for, simply because I am a survivor and must earn a living. But I am, and always will be, a police officer.
Once a cop, always a cop.
