Arms and The Man: 2

IT’S A FEW MINUTES after a Friday midnight in Vancouver. And warm. The promise of summer is in the air. Beer, bare thighs, open shirts, aimless hippies. The promise of trouble for the city’s 750-man police force. Bill Moldowan, 26, rookie cop — a wiry six-foot-some, boyish face, grade-12 education — is just beginning his eight-hour shift.

CHECKLISTINGS
