Real Police

I knew from his rap sheet Victor had his last burglary arrest about 12 months ago.

“Look at it this way, you don’t have to tell me, but how many jobs have you pulled since your last collar? I asked.

Victor had a pensive look on his face and shook his head. ”OK” he grunted, “I got a number.”

“Let’s say you cop to Burglary 3rd degree and get 12 months in the can, now divide that number into the jobs you’ve successfully done since then” I proffered.

“So, for arguments sake, let’s say you did 200 jobs, 200 jobs divided by 365 days is about less than two days per job.” I reasoned. “That ain’t so bad, right?”

Jimmy chimed in with his heavy Brooklyn accent: “And you’ll now meet up with some of your old buddies at Riker’s, maybe get some needed dental work done, learn some new tricks and like that.” Jimmy’s heavy Brooklyn accent sometimes even makes me sound like a Shakespearian Actor and I also grew up in Brooklyn.
