A1C Doug Towsley - I truly regret my actions and dismissive, arrogant behavior last Thursday & Friday. Even if you had been in error (which you were not), you were at least owed common courtesy. I will communicate with the bosses here and try to get the negative feedback's removed or transferred to me.

No,, I detest it. The media has always been sleazy, but not all of it. Its such an important part of the checks and balances in democracy. However its really broken these days.
I know a retired Homicide detective, He often says,, "I would watch the news or read the paper and I know by the names its my case, but its virtually unrecognizable to the reality and the truth of what really happened" Often when the news comes on,, And something really crazy is being reported you can clearly tell is total BULLSHIT,, I look at my wife and say.. "I can hear Pat yelling at the TV from here!" (Pat lives about 15 miles away)

PO1 H Gene Lawrence - Gotcha! Then you know what I am talking about. You might find these interviews interesting. I have met CW a few times and like him a lot, although I doubt he remembers me. He is younger than most of the PPB old school cops I know, But still one of the old guard,, when "Smoke 'em dont choke em" was still in play. I wont name names but there was some amusing T Shirts sold to members of the dept and I know a few guys who still have theirs. (one of my relatives was on the first season of Cops TV show and was kicking in a door, he still has a watch they gave out to everyone who was on the first season. Many of my neices and nephews grew up singing the song as well. Bad boys bad boys,, whatcha gonna do?)
Anyrate,, I like one of the other guys who says he got PTSD not from working the street but dealing with Bureaucracy and city govt.. But I bet you might enjoy this interview...(CW was also for many years the media liaison, and the reason they have a media liaison is Pat, who I mentioned earlier)
See: https://sites.google.com/site/theresagriffinkennedy/retired-ppb-captain-cw-jensen

In my sixth interview with law enforcement, I'd rather I didn't appear overly analytical. I will say that I found CW to be very open and direct about his experiences as a police officer and his experiences working with PPB administration.

CW worked first as a patrol officer and later in the homicide detail and also as a Captain. Working in homicide CW was responsible for breaking several very important and well known homicides including the string of child murders committed by pedophile and sociopath Westley Allen Dodd during the middle 1980's.

Though CW appeared initially reserved after we met, something I've noticed before, in my interviews with law enforcement retired and working, (who tend to be reluctant and suspicious) I noticed that in time he became more relaxed and was more natural and forthcoming about his memories, various frustrations with command staff and also his 1985 experience with lethal force; which clearly impacted him in a very profound and complex manner.

I thoroughly enjoyed this interview and was consistently amused by his dry humor and perspective. I consider this another great interview, another way for a former police officer to share intimately, in an atmosphere of respect, his thoughts, views and perspectives on a variety of complex issues that most people will never understand or experience themselves.

Thank you CW for giving us a window into your past.

I was a mandatory reporter for each of my govt service jobs and did often report. Usually someone in crisis for suicide but child abuse, rape and other cases. But If I was in Crenshaw's shoes,, I would report that material so fast it would make your head spin. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out if that guy had popped his cork and shot up a sports arena, city street, or a Walmart and found out that the threats were documented and he had NOT reported it? He would have people wanting to mount his head on a spike for failure to alert the authorities. HE DID THE RIGHT THING and regardless of what anyone said, Sadly this ex Marine was clearly telegraphing he was well on his way to acting.
