On my walk home from work, I sometimes pass law enforcement students doing training exercises. At least that’s what I assume is going on. A group of students may be gathered around an SUV while their instructor explains the finer points of putting out a car fire; or a squad car may be pulling over one of the students on the road. Whenever I see one of these activities, I wonder how they’d react to some crazy guy appearing out of nowhere, screaming and waving his arms, crying “pull me over! I did it! I did it!” or “Run, Fred, run! I’ve got you covered!” or “Leave him the hell alone, pig! He didn’t do anything!” Would they break character? All sorts of scenarios play out in my head. None of them end up being very pleasant for me. So I just continue innocently, grinning like a madman.
