I am a Christian, a registered Republican, a supporter of the U.S. Constitution, especially the First and Second Amendments, and love America and the freedom we have. I am also a police officer. I have been in the career for 30 years, 20 years with the Denver Police Department. I have worked the street, been a detective, a bomb dog handler, a bomb technician and a supervisor. I have been punched, kicked, shot at, been spit on, had bottles and rocks thrown at me. I have never shot anyone.
