Police Shootout

This reminded me of some of the videos we were shown as students at the Citizen Police Academy I attended last year. They had some doozies.

As writers, getting the details right is a good thing. Getting the feel of something right is even better. Watch and learn.













CR: Secrets to Die For by L.J. Sellers on my Kindle. L.J., as usual, is tackling some kid-glove topics. Without the gloves. You go, L.J.!

It's all better with friends.

Wow, that is terrifying. I would hope that he'd have gotten a similar sentence if he'd been shooting at civilians. Those were some dogged cops, who worked terrifically together.

To a certain extent, I wonder how possible it is to write authentically about something so far outside my world--but videos like this certainly jump start the imagination.

Thanks, Peg.

Most of the things I write about are far outside my world. Thank goodness.
