Lightbulb Looking for Stories from ACOs

Kathy Strouse, the author of "Badd Newz - The Untold Story of the Michael Vick Dog Fighting Case" is ready to start on a new book. This one will be about ACOs and their experiences everyday in the trenches. If you have a story to tell--a difficult case, a fantastic rescue, a courtroom victory or heartbreaker, the weird, the crazy the dangerous, please send a short summary to katacb@yahoo.com for consideration.

The author will follow up on those stories selected for inclusion in the book.

Ok. so it looks like I should be spooling out some of the tales of Norfolk's finest. How about "The House the Ferro's Killt?" or maybe, "Harriet Babb - the lady who pee'd and pooped on Officer Laurant's leg and then went to jail" AKA Mark's first search warrant. Nahhh, I should just write my own book...

I like the idea about a book, but I'm a firm beliver it's our's to write and devide any profit's amongst us our favorite charitys. I do this job because I love it not for the money..(glory and women Yes-money, no). Also in my past life I was an electrician tired of making everyone else rich.

I disagree. Whereas it may be our stories, not all of us have the gift to write. I see nothing wrong with using a talented, trusted ghostwriter. Also, I see nothing wrong with earning a profit!! If the story of my blood, sweat and tears makes money, why shouldn't I be able to enjoy it? I'm not "in this for the money" either (good thing, 'cuz there ain't any!) but I still have a mortgage, student loans and several teeth that could use a dentist.

I agree, if someone is going to make money off our heartbreak and stories of shocking tales (thats what they want) it should be one of us, not someone who sees a opportunity. I didnt read anything about royalties in there
