As a cop Jason has had to go through a lot. He's been beat up, pepper sprayed in the face, and the worst yet -- shocked by 50,000 volts of electricity.
And this was all done to him by other cops.
For training, of course.
A few days ago Jason brought home a DVD and asked me to watch it. It was footage of him going through taser training by getting tased. It was not pretty. I really didn't want to see that. Then he lifted up his shirt and showed me a burn mark from where the electricity entered his body, and another burn from where it left. They'll never go away.
"I can't believe they made you do that!" I said. It doesn't make sense to me. He just shrugged.
So the next time you get pulled over try to be nice. You never know what these guys might have been through that day.
Hunter kept asking when we were going to Grandpa's party. I told him that Grandpa was in California and wasn't having a party. That was unexceptable to my 5 and 2 year olds who LOVE birthday parties. So we had a birthday party for him anyway!
They love to sing happy birthday and blow out candles.
