History Of Street Cops, Gangs Guns and Cabrini Green Housing Snipers, By Greg Zito

History of Street Cops

Reviewed by Cy Hilterman

Greg Zito, the author of this informative book, was an actual cop mostly in various areas in the city of Chicago. Greg tells it like it is in such a busy and dangerous profession, as police have to wonder into various areas of the city wherever they are requested. They never know what is really going on at the location called to or what they will encounter on the way to that destination. They generally have regular partners but not always so they have to learn to depend on the partner next to them now. These men and women of law enforcement have to be commended for the job they do for all of us, sometimes against all odds of survival. A certain bond is formed between law enforcement, a bond that only tightens when the times get tougher. They can have their differences but not when their partner or friend is in danger.
