40 years is enough for Don Ryan - 2009-01-05
After serving six years as a military police officer in Korea he went to work for the police department in Clearwater, Fla., a job that provided more than its share of memorable incidents.
"We had a couple of bad cases. We handled a case involving one of Charles Manson's followers. He went into a church of Scientology and started shooting. When we went to his house his girlfriend was lying on the bed naked with a knife through her chest. He had written 'Helter Skelter' all over the walls. We arrested him and he ended up stabbing the prison minister and later he killed himself."
