For a long time after I quit working for the police force, I continued to blade. Know what that means? It’s how an officer stands with his gun-side leg slightly behind the other, angled back, to keep the weapon shielded from the person you’re interviewing…so as I’m right handed, my left leg was always in front of the right. It was an important habit to build and a harder one to break. Police officers also hate having their back to a door. Go into any restaurant, and when possible, the LEO will be facing the front. That habit continues today. I like to know what’s coming. Wonder what’s ahead this week…
