Do you remember Paul Harvey? He was the guy famous for his “The Rest of the Story” radio pieces that were always full of wisdom.

Mike Rowe, from “Dirty Jobs” reminds us of Harvey’s wisdom in a video he posted to Facebook. You must listen and watch for yourself, but the following are a few gems.

A policeman is;

“A mingling of saint and sinner.”

“They are not commonplace.”

“Less than ½ of 1% of policemen misfit that uniform. And that is a better average than you’d find among clergymen.”

A police man is called sir to his face, and a pig behind his back. He is a dichotomy of description as a hero and villain, yet he serves all people, regardless of how they abuse him.

“He must be first to an accident, infallible with a diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, and stop bleeding, tie splints and above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp.”

“A policeman must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt. He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age, without damaging his uniform and being brutal.”

From a single hair, the investigation must be thorough, but as is the case all too often of late, a felon, if caught will likely “…get dealed out by a shameless shame-ist.”

He must be all things to all people, and he must do this and “feed his family on a policeman’s salary.”

As always, Paul Harvey leaves you humbled.
