It might be hard to imagine that a university professor, who has studied prisons extensively and has even met with hardened criminals, could write something other than scholarly, theoretical manuscripts. However, Dr. Robert Johnson, a professor at American University, Washington D. C., in the Department of Justice, Law, and Society and a renowned expert in the field of corrections, has done just that. His poetry books, "Poetic Justice: Reflections on the Big House, the Death house, and the… Continue

H1N1 & First Responders

The World Health Organization has raised "swine flu" to a Stage-6 pandemic.

It is my belief that patrol sergeants and detective sergeants are different. Should they be paid the same wages? My Chief has put me to task. He told me to back-up my beliefs with facts. Therefore, I ask you, my brothers and sisters in law enforcement to help prove or dis-prove by departments pay structure whether or not they are paid the same.
