The scale of these problems is simply unimaginable.” ~ Chelsea Manning

But it was usually minor little things.” ~ Ralph Sarchie
  7. “I happened to write a book about the stuff I’ve been involved in over the years. It just so happened that my profession is that I was a cop in the New York City Police Department.

  17. “[in 1998] I know my political ideas affect what I write but I’ve tried to follow the facts wherever they land. Every topic I’ve written about begins as a question.
