Here\'s an excerpt from the skull in my closet: Sweet doesn\'t always want to be involved in policing.
At the age of 19, he is expected to become a PE teacher.
But there\'s killing bad guys in his blood.
Sweet\'s grandfather was a police officer in New York City in the 1900 s, and Sweet said he grew up reading newspaper clippings about his grandfather\'s pursuit of criminals on the roof.
Even though he has witnessed the massacre in more than 20 years of police work, Sweet says there are situations he will never forget.
When asked about a murder case where he worked, Sweet, who had received great media attention nearly a decade ago, did not hesitate to cancel the appointment. “Oct.

\"I think going through violent death, and of course, all the terrible pain that comes with it is the experience of living with your family,\" he said . \".
He also said that he would try to establish contact with the murder suspect in order to deal with the case objectively and to ensure that the accused was treated \"fairly and with respect \".
Sweet says his philosophy of life is through the philosophy of death, which allows him to focus on life, not on murder.
It\'s all about \"legacy\" for Sweet and leaving a positive mark on the world, \"so someone out there knows something about you.
One of his personal motto is \"leave them better than the people you find . \".

The scene looks Police, it\'s, not a tell-all exposé.
\"One of your greatest fears is vulnerability, and I have certainly put myself there,\" he said . \".
\"I put myself on a plate, which made me nervous,\" he added, standing behind every word in the book.
He also said that the police \"are not a bunch of apes that are dragging their fingers\" and readers may be surprised.
\"There are some real, conscious decisions that are being made,\" he said . . . . . . Assess risks and deal with bias . . . . . . And how we can overcome these biases and provide us with the best possible results . \".
