I was enjoying the fact that I was by myself in a quiet motel room and not having to guard some slimeball criminal or frightened witness. I’d worked WITSEC for awhile and saw enough shattered lives to last me a lifetime. I also saw a lot of dirtbags getting off scott free for their crimes because they were willing to testify against someone bigger and dirtier than they were. Think the Three Billy Goats of Crime, there’s always someone badder than the guy you just caught. I much prefer prisoner transport. I’ve done that duty for the last two years. However, now I was on a much needed vacation, back for my college ten year reunion.
