Ed Norris and Kevin Cowherd to Discuss, Sign Book at Abingdon Library

From the Harford County Public Library:

A “pop-up discussion and book signing” featuring Ed Norris, Kevin Cowherd and their new book, “Way Down in the Hole,” takes place Monday, May 15, at 6:30 p.m. at the Abingdon Library, 2510 Tollgate Road in Abingdon.

“Way Down in the Hole” is an account of Norris’ life moving through his 20 years with the New York Police Department, where he became deputy commissioner of operations at 36. He then became police commissioner in Baltimore and led the Maryland State Police. Norris was sent to federal prison following an investigation into his use of a little-known Baltimore Police expense account.

He is now a successful radio personality and currently co-hosts the “Norris & Long Show” on 105.7 The FAN. He is also featured in a weekly news segment on Fox 45.

Kevin Cowherd is a New York Times best-selling author. He has written six baseball novels with Orioles’ Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. He has also written three nonfiction books for Apprentice House Press: “The Art of Crisis Leadership,” with Rob Weinhold; “The Opening Act: Comedy, Life and the Desperate Pursuit of Happiness”; and “Hale Storm: The Incredible Saga of Baltimore’s Ed Hale including a Secret Life with the CIA.” He was an award-winning sports and features columnist for The Sun for 32 years and has written for Men’s Health, Parenting and Baseball Digest.

At the Abingdon Library, Norris and Cowherd will provide a 20-minute discussion and Q&A followed by a book signing and photo opportunities.

Advance registration is suggested and may be made online at hcplonline.org.

    Advance registration suggested…. LOL

    Sounds like a real page turner.

    I’d rather read Seasons Pizza delivery menu

    • He's Right, you know says

      I agree! He is a real “Cop’s Cop!” Always putting his people first! Never put his own interests above his department. Good, good, man.

  2. says

    There are good cops and there are bad cops. There are good people and there are bad people. I am not proud of myself or the things I have said about those who serve and protect our community. I will no longer dissent. I will no longer be swayed by my own short comings, by my Injustice. I don’t ask for forgiveness. I most certainly don’t require it from you. I will only say I hope that those who are willing to put their lives in front of yours will be protected by a breast plate of righteousness. Amen…..these are the last words of the dissenter.

        PTL, you are a fool that has no comprehension of the truth. I am NOT the Dissenter nor do I agree with his statement above. Any Law Enforcement Officer that has broken the law to enforce the law is a member of an Organized Crime Syndicate and a Terrorist. I believe that the entire Maryland Judiciary, including the corrupt Harford County Circuit Court, is part of this Organized Crime Syndicate and Terrorist Organization. Now, I know that I am NOT supposed to impede upon the integrity of the Court, but this is assuming that the Courts actions are embedded in integrity to begin with. In my case, they are NOT. I believe that the Maryland Legislature that has passed unconstitutional laws to enforce the law is also part of this Organized Crime Syndicate and Terrorist Organization. You can think what you want, however, you are mistaken. There is only one SoulCrusher and my name is Jon Adam McCarty. I stand by everything I have ever said and every allegation I have ever made because everything I say is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. If only our Courts had the same belief in the truth, then maybe I could Rest In Peace……Remember, I’m already dead.

    In December 2003, Norris was indicted on three charges by U.S. Attorney Thomas DiBiagio. Two of the counts charged Norris had made illegal personal expenditures of over $20,000 to pay for expensive gifts, personal expenses, and extramarital affairs with at least six women from the Baltimore Police Department’s supplemental account. The third count alleged that he had lied on a mortgage application, stating that approximately $9,000 he received from his father was a gift, when it was actually a loan. The third count was dropped as part of the plea bargain he received. Anyone who claims that Norton is a HERO and a REAL COP’S COP is sadly mistaken. He is a felon, who did use Police Department funds for his own benefit that had nothing to do with his duties as a Police Officer.

      Excuse me, I meant to say “Anyone who claims that Norris is a HERO and a REAL COP’S COP is sadly mistaken”. I don’t know why I typed “Norton”…..
