FC: MY JOB | 2012
1: I was sitting at my desk when I got a call that there had been a shooting in downtown oak cliff. There had been a lot of gang violence going on down there this summer. As police chief it is my job to lesson that and make it a safe place to be. Witnesses said that a car had pulled up next to a teenage kid who was walking and two shots were fired. He was killed instantly. No other witness have come froward yet, we are hoping to get one who saw what the driver looked like. As soon as I got there I could tell that this young man was very important to many people. A huge crown had gathered around the groom crime scene. many people in the crowd where in tears or in shock. I went to talk to the parents and they told me how good of a kid he was and how many people loved him. I made it my goal to help bring justice to his family and friends. I hate it when people with bright futures get caught in the middle of this.
2: As we started the investigation we had next to no leads or evidence. It is very hard to try and make progress with nothing to go off. There were no shells or witness that have come froward to tell us what the drivers looked like. All we have is that the car was a black two door Chevy. We started putting adds on TV and the Internet, asking people if they saw any thing to come froward and help us find the killers. We hoped we could have some evidence come in soon.
3: One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. -William Shakespeare | I got into the office early the next morning to see that some one had called the station with information on the shooting. I emmiditly called her and she came in. Her name was ms.Harrison owner of a shop down town. She said she had seen a specious car driving around earlier that morning that fit the description of what we had put on the news. She said that the passengers were two black teen age males that were possibly related. I was thrilled to get more info on this case and was ready to investigate. She also had taken the plate number of the car and gave it two us for evidence. This was just the kind of lead we needed.
4: I have some of my officers see if there are any black twins or brothers in any local gangs. I also had the witness see a sketch artist and get a drawing of the brothers. We put up the sketches every where. As we were looking through our files we notice that we had two black teen age twins that are know to be involved in a local gang. They have both already been charge with aggravated robbery and assault. It sounded like something worth looking in to, at least ask bring them in and ask them some question to see if they knew any thing about the murder.
5: I had one of our officer go drive by in an unmarked vehicle to go scout out the home, and to see if anything weird was going on. When he got back he had said that there was a Black Chevy out side and the suspects appeared to be home. The plate on the black Chevy matched the plates given to us by the witness. I thought that we needed to get a group of officers together and go over there. We were gonna be heavily armed because these suspects had past experiences with violence. I called to five squad cars to come get suited up then we will head over there.
6: As we pull up to the house we can tell the suspects are home. We get all set up and have two officers go to the door. The rest of us are taking cover behind our cars. As the suspect opens the door he emmidtly starts to run once he sees its the cops. The other suspect comes running in from the kitchen and shoots both coops. We all run to the door and tazed both suspects. We then called an ambulance and retained the suspects. The operation was successful but at the cost of the two wounded cops. They ended up being ok but we would rather them not being injured. We brought the suspects in and started to Question them about the shooting of the teen.
7: Once we got the suspects In and started questioning them, we told them all the evidence we had on them and why we brought them in. We were telling them how it looked and what their options were. They chose not to say anything without a lawyer. There lawyers knew that it was not a situation in their favor, basically they knew they were guilty and there was nothing they could do about it but confess. Their lawyers explained that to them that if they confess it would all go a lot smother. So then i guess they talked some scene into them and the boys committed to the murder. They said that they killed him because it was a initiation step to get into one of the local gangs.
8: There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature. -Aristotle | What I do is very hard and dangerous work, but it is also very satisfying. I do what i do because I like to keep this town safe and to help families of harsh crimes like this. I put up with the danger and put my life on the line to do these things. it just makes me really happy to find the committee of a crime against kids. And i hope to do this job for a long time.
9: The two boys were sentenced to life in prison. For the rest of their lives they will have to stay in prison and think about the crimes they have committed against this young man. They will never ever get another shot at a normal life. They will never get a do over to reverse the things they have done. I would like to think they wouldn't do what they did if they had the chance to do it again. I am just happy that we brought justice to the family and friends of the victim. I hope the family can feel conform now that we caught the killers and now they can morn.
13: Never a day passes but that I do myself the honor to commune with some of nature's varied forms. -George Washington Carver

20: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
