    I have had patients who are cops and wives of cops that I know very well, and I know some good people. But I have seen a nervous policeman start to draw a gun on my then boyfriend (now my spouse) because he was in the college uniform of long hair, T-shirt and jeans and driving his Dad's nice car. He did exactly what the policeman told him to do but the policeman realized than it was probably a mistake to have him get back in the car and not stand where he could see him and got nervous.

    That many should never have been on a police force and there are many, many others like him.
