Kansas City Police Memoir Conversation



From a local law man talking about his experience as a white dude working to keep the the urban core safe . . . Some really honest and refreshing talk that might contradict so much manufactured media fear and remind us that even people on opposite sides of the political spectrum can develop a begrudging respect for one another . . . Which is always the best kind.

Take a listen . . .

Author of Peckerwood in the Hood: Misadventures of a Kansas City Cop, D.W. Rawlings joins Rob in studio to chat about American policing and the way he has made it humourous in his book.

Good book. Easy to read.

Isn't that the gold standard for all great literature?

And a fine racist cop he is.

There is nothing funny about trying to keep blacks, who for the most part, get out of bed everyday with criminal intent, in check.

Black people are horrible. Period.

I have seen it first hand my entire life.

6:27 If he is a racist I bet he didn't start out as one, it was earned from years of dealing with black people and how they really are. Just like they say if you go into prison not a racist you will be one before you get out. You probably posted that from Leawood too, betting you don't live on College Ave or Benton.

How can you be sure he didn't start out as a racist.

6:21, I don't think so. Here are some of the many books that are universally regarded as great literature but are not easy to read: War and Peace, The Brothers Karamazov, Ulysses, In Search of Lost Time, Moby Dick.

This is really a lousy book. Very poor attempt at humor AND writing in general.
