    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBI enjoyed this book a great deal I was a cop for thirty one years so I might be coming at this book differently than most readers though this book has been well received and deservedly so The book is comprised of vignettes short sto

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBActual rating 25 starsI read an enthusiastic review of this book in the New Yorker and decided to buy a copy Note to self be skeptical of New Yorker reviewsThis is a collection of cop stories told by a cop I gather that many were originally oral presentations and perhaps they worked better that way In print the stories are repetitive long winded and shallow A few of them conveyed some of what it is to be a big city cop most though were about protecting said cop's egoSteve Osborne's stories don't come close to telling us what it is like to be a cop He doesn't address even a single one of the many acknowledged issues we're all aware of bad cops corruption racism quotas falsification of evidence brutality In his stories the cops are all

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBGritty often darkly humorous stories from a New York City cop I briefly dated one of New York's finest and I can attest that Osborne fits the mold These guys are tough They do an incredibly dangerous difficult and essential job And most of them do it wellI recently read Just Mercy A Story of Justice and Redemption a superb and moving story about death row inmates and America's incarceration epidemic I agree with Bryan Stevenson that we jail too many people that incarceration has become the go to substitute for mental health facilities and drug treatment programs And there is no doubt in my mind that the harshest penalties are meted out on people of color too often unfairly But I was born and raised in New York City I spent most of my life there and lived through the crime waves of the 70s and 80s So I know that there is another side to the story Guys like Steve Osborne were on the front lines of a war zone There will always be cops who turn bad who snap or make

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBWhen I first heard we'd be publishing this book I had no idea it would be so timely With NYC cops in the news so frequently now Steve Osborne is the perfect voice to welcome us hilariously heartily and sometimes harshly into the reality of the street beat His life is not one of mayoral disputes union negotiations or media controversies it's a life of stories simple stories of humans he must hear and help Now retired Osborne works wonders retelling those stories he lived and in doing so does his duty as a writer as well as he did as a cop JG marketer

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBThis guy really wants us to know a few things he's not a librul he's not a sensitive kind of of guy but he really is cops are all really good guys he gets a tingling in his ball bag whenever he's onto a good case he loves the term ball bagThe repetitiveness and simplicity of his writing were tiring but as a spoken storyteller he's much compelling I powered throu

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBI enjoyed these essays written by a retired NYC policeman They felt true and they made me want to know the author better I'd never really though about a cop loving his job that he might become an adrenaline junkie The only cops I've met are fictionalI felt like I met Steve Osborne

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBI listened to the audiobook version of this book I think it enhanced the book because I could hear the stories read in the author's own thick New York accent Once you hear him talk there is no mistaking that he was a NYC cop The stories were good reminiscent of NYPD Blue and brutally honest The stories in this book are not described through rose colored glasses I haven't head the F bomb dropped so many times in one book But I expected as much Some stories were interesting that others but they all held my attention and even had me held in slight suspense a few times Surprisingly the most powerful stories were not the ones about police work but the personal stories the author shared about his dad's death and h

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBUgh this book If homophobia racism classism and a healthy dose of sexism don't bother you you may enjoy this insight less memoir of a NYC cop If they do bother you the author will chalk it up to your being a liberal

    PDF The Job ePUB #180; #9734; franzbielmeierde The Job ePUBIt's like people read that some of these stories came from his Moth storytelling sets and then didn't read the fucking book oh man the Moth is cool so this must be cool five stars all around Uh nope A big pile of homophobic nope Piss poor writing not sure how that many exclamation points got past his editor little context to anything And uh excuse me? The Dead Dog story? Fuck you Seriously I would have maybe cared just a little bit if you didn't spend the first half of that story writing about how you were so worried that getting a small dog would make you look gay and that you suspected that people were questioning your sexuality
