  • Tougher in Alaska

    Anyone interested might want to check it out tonight. They are profiling the "Troopers of the Arctic" or something like that. Looks interesting.

    Oh yeah...it's July 20.

        Sorry...yeah, History channel. Was in a hurry when I wrote that, but figured people could find it if they wanted to.

          Really interesting episode. Looked like a rather different type of policing than the lower states.

                I thought it was a good show since I'm applying for way down yander...I just wished they would have shown some more "winter" conditions and what life is really like..

                Good show though..
                The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                  It was a great eppisode, I had to get up at 0 dark thirty this morning and I still stayed up to watch it. Really makes you apreciate how "easy" we have it here in the "lesser" 48

                    I liked the Shungnak story. When I was working for the NSBDPS in Wainwright we could hire a temporary jail guard to watch our prisoners or we could take them home with us. Sometimes finding a jail guard that was sober could be a challange. We had a spare bedroom in the duplex with an eye bolt in the floor. You just put the leg iron on around one leg and the other in the eye bolt. The room was empty so they had plenty of floor space. Things sure are different in the land of the midnight sun.

                        If that's what the job entails you'll take a prisoner home. The majority of them were just too intoxicated to release. They passed out once we got them settled. In the morning they were good to go and extremely apologetic.

                            They should have had a segment about the admin and dealing with the Gov's office...LOL... That'd be "tougher in Alaska"...:-)
