My independent project was done on a whimsical basis. It's thanksgiving eve

and my family and I are all gathered around watching football. The Redskins and

Cowboy's are all tied up, and my uncle is on the verge of having a nervous breakdown.

A diehard Cowboys fan, who can't even remember when was the last time he didn't bet

on a game. Mom and dad are still eating, while my aunt recites a thanksgiving song for

all the uninvited guests. The door bell rings, and what do you know it's the Lowell

Police. Officers Bob Jacob and William Gould stop by on their neighbor-hood patrol.

My aunt invities them in for some coffee, and they end up eating the rest of our

thanksgiving dinner. For some strange reason I think of Sociology.( Do you think they'll

arrest me if I asked them too.) I asked if they had some spare time to indulge me in my

experiment, and they were delighted to do so. (This also gave me a chance to show my

parents I was actually doing something productive in school.) They placed the

hand-cuffs on me and read me my rights. I have to admit the whole thing was quite

funny, but I would never want it to happen in a real situation. The cuffs where killing

me, but I took it like a man. They gave me a ride around the block where I had the

chance to ask them a few questions.

1. What made you want to become a cop?

2. How do you feel about kids and our constant drug problem?

3. Do you think certain laws should apply to certain situations?

4. Do you feel you are making a significant contribution to society?

5. What's the number one crime you constantly encounter?

Bob became a cop because it was a family thing. William became a cop because

he thought he could make a difference, and he lost a brother so I didn't push the subject

any further. As for drugs, both agreed that they enforce no drugs to the letter of the law.

From a joint to an once it's all the same. The repercussions vary, but that's not their job,

they leave it up for the courts to decide what type of steps should be taken. They do

admit at times to scarring kids, saying that their going away for a long time, and basically

just being more lenient. When I asked if they thought killing someone in self defense

was wrong, they replied if you can't call us first then by all means do anything necessary

to escape. Both agreed they feel better when they have done a good nights job, but wish

more could be done to ensure people a right to live as they wish no matter where that

might be. The number one crime in committed in Lowell is drug dealing and abuse. As

a matter of fact Lowell was rated number one in the country in this category. Just

recently the biggest drug bust in New England was reported there. This just goes to show

what these men and women encounter every night when they put on that uniform.
