Welcome to the world of urban police legend and lore. 

Homicidal Humor offers a glimpse of life through the eyes of a homicide detective, whose ability to see the funnier side of tragedy has helped keep him sane.  

These fictional short stories, inspired by real cops and real cases, are set in areas along the Texas Gulf Coast and include historical facts and interesting tidbits about the city of Houston and its police department. All individuals, as well as locations alluded to, are fictitious. You might say the names have been changed to protect the imbeciles. 

See what fans think about Homicidal Humor:

"Funny and enlightening, but the author may have to change his name and leave the state once this publication hits the streets." --The Hon. Judge R. H. Bielstein, Richmond/Fort Bend County, Texas

"An old cop's book. Rough and unvarnished. Fast-moving and very entertaining." --Breck Porter, Editor, Galveston County Police New

"I usually don't think things are funny unless someone gets killed, maimed, or at least highly inconvenienced. I truly enjoyed this book." --Sgt. M. D. Beale, Houston Robbery (ret.) 

An excerpt from Homicidal Humor:

He Was Bit Shot

Tony Felder was dispatched to a shooting-ambulance call at XXXX Lyons Avenue, in front of Burke’s Discount Liquor Store. Felder arrived to find a middle-aged black male shooting victim being loaded into an ambulance. The injured man was unconscious. Felder noted the ambulance number (for his hospital follow-up) and began trying to work the crowd of onlookers for information. Tony first called out, "Does anyone here know this man?" He got no response, other than a few heads being shaken from side to side. His next inquiry was, "Does anyone know what happened out here today?” A small, skinny little kid at the front of the crowd (who looked about eight years old) called out, "I do. Da Bit shot him." Tony knelt down and asked the youngster if he'd seen the shooting when it happened, to which the street urchin responded, "No, I dent. I seen da man just come 'round da corner of dat building. He took a couple steps and den he yelled out, ’The Bit shot me.’ Den he fell down an' he dent say nuttin’ else.”
