It Isn't Easy Being a Cop

For me, the worse job in policing is looking through the possessions of a murder victum. A lot of the time when a murders an open-and-shut case, which mostly they are, it's not necessary to do it,  but sometimes there's no choice, and it's a painful process, the reason being that it puts flesh and bones on people, gives you insigts into what made them tick, this only serves to make them more human. When you've trying to rational and objective, this is something you really could do without.
