Westport News recently released an article about their hometown career cop and his successful transition to full-time author:
"I wanted people to see the cop's point of view," he said. On television police officers are portrayed as hard, often emotionless people, he said. "On TV when a cop shoots someone, it's no big deal and that's not at all how it works. Most cops leave the job with post-traumatic stress disorder," the retired officer said. "A macho cop gets a SIDS call and it changes the way he thinks about people."
