Overview

Nothing quite prepares you for what you will see on the street once you become a cop. It is one of the most dangerous jobs a person can do but also the most fun as well. --Scott Baker

Cops are the people who see and hear it all. They work at one of the world's most dangerous jobs, but it's also one of the most entertaining. When their lives are at risk-and even when they aren't--cops encounter constant weirdness and stupidity in human behavior. The Funniest Cop Stories Ever collects the strangest, most amusing stories about stupid crooks, bungled crimes, and station-house banter. A true look at what life is like behind the badge, the tales in The Funniest Cop Stories Ever were collected by real-life ex-New York City policeman Scott Baker and coauthor Tom Philbin. Anecdotes are told by the real-life cops who experienced them and include:

* A foot chase after a dwarf who karate-kicked his girlfriend's door and assaulted her while wearing a tuxedo and carrying a violin case.

* A beggar who ended people's pay phone calls so he could demand their extra spare change.

* A narcotics bust on a guy who claimed the crack cocaine--and his pants--didn't belong to him.

Especially if you are or know someone in LE. We know that things like this really happen. Would love to see these authors write more of these stories, and expand to other professions.

Even though this book seems like it was not put together by a professional, it is cute and humorous!

This book was so funny, it had me laughing out loud, and I had to share some of the stories with my Police friends. Working as a police dispatcher its really easy to see some of my friends doing things like this!

I read this book and I almost smiled once. The stories may be funny to the people to told about them but reading them was not amusing at all.
