Description

Peckerwood in the Hood is the brutally honest tale of an average white cop’s gut-wrenching journey through Heaven and Hell as he tries to police a largely minority inner city. Adrenaline rushes, sleepless nights, gunfights, wrestling criminals, suspicion, dark humor, anxiety, protective instinct, hyper-vigilance, gun cabinets clanking shut, phones ringing and handcuffs rattling at two in the morning. That is the life the author lived and shares in this book. Peckerwood in the Hood will open your eyes to the truth of being a cop in inner city America. Anyone considering a career in law enforcement will jump off that fence they are straddling, on one side or the other. Police and military families will gain valuable insight to help them cope when their heroes come home.

America wants to know:

What is it like being a cop? Why do they think and behave the way they do? How do I become a police officer?
What did the firearms instructor mean when he said, “It is better to be tried by twelve than carried by six…”?
Do police officers leave the world better than they found it? Why are so many cops depressed? Do they really drink?
What is a cop to do when he retires? “What am I supposed to do? I can’t just go from saving lives to saving coupons.”
Peckerwood in the Hood answers these questions and more in a wild roller coaster ride through the inner city.
