%...I'm gonna give you a little information--as was said earlier, I've interviewed thousands of people, I've interviewed people with foreign police departments, when I was in a Navy, I was in law enforcement, and as a criminal investigator... Thank god, we are in the United States, because most interviews--in Italy, Spain and so forth--start out physically... Ok... There is no police abuse over there, they can do pretty much what they want, any time they want, anyhow they want... So, just be aware of that, and be thankful for what you got.
(Но "be thankful for what you got" несколько меняет впечатление, конечно. С учётом её выходит как бы "ну, подумаешь, попрессуют вас немного в участке — там-то вас бы вообще покалечили!".)
