Product Test: Pelican 1910 and 1920 Flashlights  

January 3, 2012
The 1920 makes a perfect alley light. When the light-bar alley light is too much of a flood light or up too high to get a look at the ground, the 1920 is perfect.

Let's Stay Alive in 2012  

December 22, 2011
A 23% rise in firearms-related fatalities factors into that total, with many of these officers having been killed in ambushes. Over the course of the past few days when I first scribbled down an idea prompt for this blog, four more officers have died.

The Potential Hazards of Project Blue Light  

December 6, 2011
When you see police union stickers doing double-duty as "Break Window Here" decals and non-cops getting physically assaulted for wearing cop-related attire, you have to wonder if a Project Blue Light display of respect couldn't come back to bite us and our loved ones.

November 3, 2011
Anyone wonder what happens to a police officer "after" he or she is killed in the line duty? Unfortunately, I had the sad opportunity and yet the privilege to find out firsthand.
