Suspect Has a History

Crime writer Jack Bates has a poem at The 5-2 entitled "Suspect Has a History," inspired by long nights listening to his police scanner. Gerald So, Alison Dasho and I recorded a reading of the poem. I play the cop. I didn't have a donut to eat while recording it, but I did my best. It's a fine poem that captures the sense of futility first responders feel when dealing with folks who just seem to have it in for themselves.
