    Ride along with a K9 Deputy

    A few days ago I had the chance to ride along with a friend who is a K9 Sheriff Deputy. WOW!!! That was a blast. I wasnt sure if I should fell more safe as a citizen or be more defensive afterwards> I guess it would be a little of both. Its amazing how some people live in crime and have young children they are raising who look up to them. I just dont understand it.... 90% of the people we pulled his dog hit and we found drugs. Meth mostly. METH> thats something else I dont understand. How do people get talked into doing that stuff??? Pier pressure must be pretty tough these days.....THANK YOU LEO's for what you do!!!! I wish it was up to me and you would all get a raise!

    I went to a class put on by the DEA several years and it was all about Meth. It was a day long class and it was very eye opening.


    The way the agent taught the class, had even me wanting to try it. It sounded so good. At first.

    Fromm what I understand, it makes one feel SOOOOO good that they cant walk away from it. It heightens the five senses and it does it for quite some time. It literally makes one feel good to be alive.
    With that being said, it can go on for a few days depending on the dose. The problem is that when you crash,you crash so hard and you feel so bad that you just want it to quit...so you take another hit of Meth to get back to the good feeling.

    It's been said that if one ever starts the cycle that they cant stop it. Eventually you quit eating and sleeping normally, it messes with your immune and nervous system and you lose track of reality. We've all seen it in the pictures of people that were good looking that turned into hags a few years later. I've seen it myself in people that I arrested and arrested again a year or two later...and didn't even recognize them because of the physical changes.

    Meth addiction is one of the worst plagues to hit humanity. I have seen it turn normal productive people into little more than animals.
    It truly comes from the pit of Hell.

    Did you know that herion was "created" to combat Cocaine addiction. It was supposed to be the "cure".

    I think that might be fun, but none of the police dogs seemed to ever like me.... now the bomb dogs were ok.

    Friend, heroin has been around (in one form or another) for a thousand years or more.


    ETA: OOps I'm wrong. This specific opiate derivative was invented in 1895 by Bayer Co. to replace Morphine. Opiates have been cultivated since 3400 BC but not heroin specifically.

    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Meth is about the most highly addictive drug out there... high percentage of users addicted after the first use. Why? Here's a reason: young girls use it to help keep their weight down. That's what got my stepdaughter on it, and she's 5 months clean now after 2+ years of using. This unwelcome exposure to the seamy side of life and the drug trade has convinced me that a whole bunch of people (mostly dealers, not the users) need to lose their privileges to live.

    I'm a recovering meth addict,coming up on 20 years,at first the drug makes you feel 10 foot tall and bullet proof,you feel like you can function physically and mentally better than ever before,It's highly addictive and if it's good dope the high can last 12 hours or more after you snort/smoke/eat/or inject it.Then your tolerance gets higher,your doing more to get the same high and using every 4-6 hours.After being up for a week or more at a time you get physically and mentally drained and you crash,usually lasts 20 hours more or less,you gotta use just to get out of bed and the intense high is gone,you use just to try to feel normal and you walk around in a foggy state of mind.If you were raised with moral values that is usually the first thing to go,spiritually your bankrupt,I thought if there was a God he wouldn't let me live like this.I remember people telling me I looked like crap and needed help,I told them I loved my life and to leave me alone,yet I hated my life,but the thought of quitting was really scary,the few times I tried to quit on willpower,as soon as somebody mentioned they had some meth I would get butterflies in my stomach and found myself using against my will.My clean date is 7/11/1991.The day I started on a Journey to find out who I am.
    I've stayed clean thru the death of both my parents,a Divorce in 2000,a Spinal Cord injury in 2002,that I take a non narcotic pain reliever for the Chronic pain from it ,I wish I didn't have to take anything.Everyday I wake up I remember I am an addict,I may not be responsible for my disease,but I am responsible for my recovery.

    I have seen its effects on a family member. He went from 230# to about 150#...looks changed...stole everything he could get his hands on, and eventually ended up locked up in prison for a long time. I think that he's still there...what a waste of life.

    Congrats on the ride-along, I'm sure it was fun, a ride-along is what sealed the deal for me becoming a cop

    all the street drugs are harmful to user and society in their own ways
    Meth is horrible here, its #1 followed by coke/crack, we don't get much heroin here though, lots of african immigrants on/growing/distributing Kat which gives a similar high/feeling like meth, and we have to confront all these people every night
    fighting someone high on meth or coke is byproduct too
    we had a fight with a guy hopped up on coke, took multiple officers, he got hits to chest, abdomen, knee kicked in, baton strikes, broke taser wires and was like the energizer bunny, finally took an officer putting on a vascular neck restraint to get him down and in custody

    dukalmighty.....congrats to you sir, great job!

    Duk,

    Thanks for sharing that. I have great admiration for you coming out the other side of this addiction.

    If you get the chance, I would deffinatley do it. I rode with what they called the catch team. They primarily pulled people that
    looked suspicious. Also picked up people with warrents. The people that had warrents that day were prone to running, so the catch was very fast. The hardest thing for me was waiting in the vehicle while they were inside cuffing folks. I was told that I could get out when the area was secure. I would love to do the reserves but I have small children which would make it hard for me with a full time job.
