Johnny and his partner, Tim, drove up to the open field, took off their seatbelts, and took a look in the rear-view mirror. What they saw were a bunch of red plastic cups all over the area. Tim laughed and said, “Students. Let’s check it out.” They discovered a fire pit from the previous night. The chairs were stacked with stones. Plastic bottles and tin cans were tucked behind the chairs too. They started walking to their car. Then, they heard something behind the bushes.
Years Of Service

Johnny Le and Tim Yee are used to responding to unusual calls. After all, they are deputies of the Sacramento County Sheriff. They’ve answered calls related to accidents, verbal disputes, and worse. They’ve practically seen or heard it all. But despite their years of experience, there are still things about this job that shocks them.

Tim and Johnny go through what most officers deal with every morning. They get up, get dressed, and say goodbye to their loved ones without knowing if they’ll survive the day. But the cops at the Sacramento Police Department have tried their best to change people’s perceptions of the police after a series of scandals and unarmed shootings. But not every action can be easily forgiven.

Protests broke out in Sacramento earlier this year after a young man was shot in his grandmother’s yard. The cops who shot the boy believed he was carrying something that could harm them, but all the boy was doing was trying to grab his phone from his pocket. The incident led to public outcry. But while Tim and Johnny weren’t involved, every officer felt the scrutiny of the people.
Men and women of all ages began to protest right outside the Golden 1 Center. They linked their arms in a chain and started shouting at the sports fans waving their tickets at them. “Join us or go home!” The Sacramento Kings beat the Atlanta Hawks that night, but there was hardly anybody there to see this amazing victory. And every move the cops made was being monitored and scrutinized.
