Overview

On the morning of my 21st birthday I became the youngest man to have ever pinned on the badge of an Oakland police officer. On that date, I could vote, I could legally drink, and I was armed.

The feel and cut of a police uniform, the smell and weight of leather belts, a holstered gun, highly polished black boots, the silver star over my left tit, and the requisite metal-rimmed dark glasses, assaulted my senses like an opiate each night in the police locker room. Overnight, I was inducted into a frenzied life of violence, risk, sexual exploration, and deception. I bonded with a group of men who fed a similar appetite.

I physically transformed myself by gaining forty pounds of lean hard muscle in the first year. The mental transformation was just as dramatic.

In the subterranean caverns of the Oakland YMCA I stood naked and dripping wet at the edge of the swimming pool. A man who recognized the growing hungers within me offered more than friendship. He was an Oakland Police lieutenant.

For the next three years, I literally stood shoulder to shoulder in uniform with other cops. I drank with other cops. I worked out in the gym with other cops. I attended college classes with other cops. I vacationed with other cops. I loved other cops.

The language isn’t flowery, the subject matter may be coarse, and the images may assault your sensibilities. Sometimes life hands us more than we could have imagined. I reveled in it.

This book will make you break out laughing at times, and at others bring tears to your eyes. It’s all true. It really happened, and you will learn things you never would have learned from any other source. It’s one of those books you just can’t put down, and Mr. Damron’s writing skills make it easy to read. Prepare to be shocked!
