An Open Letter And Invitation To Rick Wilson

Dear Mr. Wilson:

I’m a retired Colorado Law Enforcement Officer with over 20 years’ experience as a cop and nearly 2 years thereafter as an investigator for the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office.  I’m also a husband, a father and a grandfather.  This morning yet another of your perverted, deviant Twitter posts came to my attention (see the above image).

You’ve said on television that people like I who support Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy are childless men who masturbate to anime.  You’re pretty brave insulting Americans from your desk with your keyboard, or in the television studio.    If you want to insult me face-to-face, that can be arranged.  My email address is at the bottom of this letter.

I see that you’re also okay with future summary executions of American citizens who intend to vote for Mr. Trump.  Of course, carrying out such executions would require informants to secretly name the people who are to be killed.  Cops call such informants snitches.  Based upon what I’ve seen, heard and read from you, I will guess that you are prime snitch material.  By the way, a snitch is the lowest form of life in the world of criminals and patriots, Mr. Wilson.

But, if you’re compiling names, please go ahead and add mine to your little snitch list and hand it over to whomever you believe should kill me when this is all over. Whoever it is can do his best.  I won’t hide from him or from you.

After some of the offensive material you’ve written and spoken I’m surprised you haven’t been fired.  I would fire you.  That you still have a job in journalism is fairly indicative of the intellectual decay in our press corps upper management ranks.

I’m going to vote for Donald Trump.

Very truly yours,

John L. Work ( johnlwork.jlw@gmail.com )

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    Good Letter John. Have to agree with you on this one. If the GOP does not stop the squabbling from Cruz/Rubio and get behind Trump, they are handing the election over to Hillary. >
