Fallen into the internets.

pdb tipped me off to a blog by a cop called "Raindogblue".

The style is absolutely hypnotic. Very sparse. Kinda poetic. I just looked up to see that I was 45 minutes into the archives. You should check it out.

Damn, that's the next Joe Friday!

Eloquent, educated yet very concise, almost terse. And a very damn good read.

I just read the first post, and I'll be damned if I'm not a little jealous of his writing style.

Watch this one-- he's good.

I'm in. I'd be curious to see his stats for the last and next week, I wouldn't be surprised if he already has a pretty good following.

Freaky. I just read that and whoever it is works in my own department!! I know who Grumpy is as I saw the blank firing pistol when he brought it back to the precinct. I joked with Grumpy that he was getting soft for not shooting the guy and he said he thought about it but was unsure of the background and felt it better to retreat. Small world...
