Thanks guys. Yeah, it was "fear O'God" time for me and the wife. I was the first to greet them and nearly shook the guys hand off his arm.
Nice to know the world isn't completely evil.

Dan,
She's the gymnast/fish/distance runner in the family. Turns out she covered about a half mile in the sand. She now wears a leash.

Arrested a guy for "possession for sale" of Cocaine Base (crack) last week. He's was out today, as he is every day, standing one block from where we last arrested him. Chad stops the car and we have the following exchange:

Me- "Hey Mr. Smith, how's it going."

Mr. Smith- "Fine. I have court next week for that case you gave me."

Me- "Are you gonna show up?"

Mr. Smith (shaking his head violently from side to side)- "NO!"

Me- "Why not?"

Mr. Smith- "Cuz I don't want to go to jail."

Chad- "If you don't show up you'll get a warrant and we'll arrest you."

Me- "At least go to the prelim(inary hearing)."

Mr. Smith- "I ain't going."

Random Crackhead On The Street- "I'll make sure he goes, Officers."

Us- "Thanks."

-D.

Ron, I can imagine what was going through your mind during those very loooong ten minutes. Even made my heart skip a few.

Hey Don,
Apparently many parents go through the same type of situation. With us, it's actually the second time it's happened. The first was about 12 years ago at Disneyland, but that was nothing in comparison because D-Land is a closed park and security is everywhere.
The beach. . .different story. Let's put it this way, all the worst scenarios go through first while hope is in the back saying, "she's alright!"
Like Dan said, we have matching leashes now!

Dan,
If you can't trust a crackhead, who can you trust?

Remember that bug thing in MIB that took the skin off the sensitive, shotgun wielding guy upon whose truck the little space ship landed? Later in the movie said sensitive bug thing, inside said skin moves in that herky-jerky, spasmodic dance as he comes down the space ship ramp.

Keep that visual.

I was in our jail some years ago booking some oxygen thief when I heard a sound I can only describe as, well...attention getting to say the least. The booking area was fairly crowded with street cops, jailers, fresh arrests, just booked folks, trustees and the booking nurse. The sound, this gurgling squeak with a strangled finish was of sufficient interest in tone and volume to elicit a collective curiosity that caused all to stop what they were doing (a just booked on the phone stopped talking and with mouth agape - though perhaps permanent expression frozen in place just like mom warned you about - he looked on in obvious amazement) and stare with eyebrows raised, jaw lowered and a slight forward extension of the neck. If ever there was an EF Hutton moment this was it.

Pierce County is way high, close to the top high in methamphetamine use. We have an extremely busy lab team and booming lithium battery sales. Meth, for those of you that are unaware, is a stimulant drug that has a very powerful effect on the sympathetic nervous system. Cocaine effects last to a maximum of 90 minutes or so whereas meth hangs on for up to 14 hours.

We all stared in astonishment as a very patient Tacoma PD officer escorted the little sister of that bug thing from the elevator to the bench in front of the booking desk. The walk was slower than a wedding procession and infinitely more interesting. From where you are sitting right now quickly stick your arm out to 3:00 or so. Pretty easy with your arm, imagine doing that with your leg, while walking, handcuffed. Every couple steps...I'll call her Velma...would start that squeaky, strangled gurgle sound, a leg would shoot out in some random direction and she would shake...no, vibrate with the most intense total body muscle contraction I have every seen.

You know how when you see someone take a shot to the fellas all the guys in the room double over just a bit in a sympathetic spasm of shared pain? Each time Velma would have one of her leg shooting events the assembled audience would grimace in unison and then exhale softly. Not sure what everyone else was thinking but I was thinking "Meth maggot. Great drug eval. Wonder if she was driving?"

She was not. Her boyfriend was and he trailed up to the booking area a few minutes later. For no particular reason I'll call him Troy and he was not as messed up as her. Earlier in the evening Troy called Velma and told her he wanted to kill himself by driving off the cliff in Orting. (There is no cliff in Orting). He asked her if she wanted to go and she said "Sure." (I did an eval on Troy and he told me all of this). Troy told me he asked Velma if she wanted to do some meth before they drove off the cliff and she said "OK." He got some and he said he shot her up with a "Gram Slam." I thought that was what you got at Denny's but in fact it was a full gram of meth. She was used to an eighth of a gram when she shot up her meth so that's why she was so whacked out.

In spite of seeing this kind of thing with an alarming frequency, I continue to be amazed at what people will do to themselves.

Heck, look at what we do.

Guess there are all kinds of takes on "It doesn't have to be fun to be fun".
Kinda sad.
